Parenting tip: Smile at your baby. It sets the right tone for life :)

5 Christine December 7, 2009 at 9:21 PM

My best parenting tip is to spend a lot of time enjoying your little ones. They don’t tend to get into as many messes that way, and guide them towards fun and rewarding activities that you can do together.

6 Crystal W December 7, 2009 at 9:23 PM

Pick your battles wisely so that you will win the war!!
I don’t like to get on my daughter’s about every little thing so if the little one is ripping up paper I let her go and then we pick up together!!! Instead of stopping her and cause a crying session. I call it a small battle lost but in the end I will win the war and have responsible, respectful, caring adults! purpletinker12@yahoo.com

I’m due with my first baby in just 5 weeks. I take care of my nieces and nephews a lot though… I’d have to say patience!

17 Melissa December 7, 2009 at 9:58 PM

Leave some wipes and a few diapers in every room. Even taking a few steps feels like a mile when you’re that exhausted!

42 EML December 7, 2009 at 11:51 PM

Leave a bag of diapers, wipes and a few snacks in the trunk of your car…you never know when you (or another mom) might need them.

43 I Do Faces December 7, 2009 at 11:54 PM

I’ve only been a parent for 8 months but the best advice I have is to always LOVE! Your baby can never have enough, I bet my daughter hates that I hug and kiss her all day long but I just know she won’t be this little forever! I have so much more to learn tho!

I would say to enjoy the time you get to spend it with your kids. Don’t waste it picking up toys or trying to clean up messes!

Take one day at a time and remember there is always tomorrow.

put your child on a schedule early on – they do so much better when life is more predictable for them.

My best parenting tip is take time for yourself. Take an extra long bath while your dh takes care of the kids, anything that can bring your sanity back. :)

Take time for your children now while they’re little and then they’ll have time for you when they’re older.

Use warnings for your children so they know what they’re doing wrong and it will keep you from yelling at them or ignoring their behavior that you want them to stop.

When splitting a cookie between siblings, let one break the cookie and the other gets to choose their piece first. You will be amazed how exact they can break the cookie and there is no complaining about one getting a bigger piece!!!

my best one is to just love your children. love covers a multitude of sin.

Remember the baby is never crying for “no reason”. Make sure the baby is not wet, hungry, hot, cold, or just in need of some cuddle time when he/she is crying. You can not spoil your baby by tending to its needs. So relax and enjoy this very special time because it goes incredibly fast. Take lots of pics, too. :-) Congratulations!

I always make a point to have a positive attitude when around the kids. I know she may be 2, but she is learning so much from me. Even my attitude. I just want her to be a sweet child not a terror!

Take time for yourself when they are sleeping… not when they are awake and want your attention!! Much less stressful and much MORE satisfying! = )

177 danimcgarry December 10, 2009 at 4:59 PM

My parenting tip would be.. don’t be too hard on yourself! I tend to compare myself to other parents and nit pick every little thing that I’m not doing “right” as a mom. But the truth is as long as my daughter is loved and her needs are being met then I am doing my job!

My best advice: YOU are your child’s parent, not anyone else. Smile and listen to advice and then do what you feel is best for your situation.

I am the mother of a 16 month old and have one on the way. All I can say is that my best advice is “when you feel yourself losing it for any reason, put your baby in their crib, close the door and give yourself a break for a few min. maybe have a cup of coffee or tea, then go get your kid and try again.” It is good for both you and your baby.

My advice is to just try and enjoy every minute of it!!!! They grow up so very fast! Even on the days when you are extremely frustrated, just know that the stage will not last forever! jace_n_vanessa@yahoo.com

we just had a little girl…when we brought her home we told our 2 yr old daughter that she would be in charge of caden’s feet…gave her something to feel special about and we dont have to worry as much about spreading germs by touching hands!

192 Mommy Daisy December 10, 2009 at 11:45 PM

Seriously…my best parenting tip…trust your instincts as a mother/parent.
