Titled “Average Parent Problems”, it’s full of hilarious pictures showing what parents go through daily. From finding a slice of pizza inside your purse to listening to tantrums over pretty much anything to – you can expect to see it all.
‘I hope other parents will relate to the photos, feel like they are in good company and see the amusement in our daily struggles,’ Ilana Wiles, told The Huffington Post.
If you’d like a little advice on parenting, we’ll share with you parenting.com’s “easy ways to be a fantastic parent”: Take charge. Children crave limits, which help them understand and manage an often confusing world. Show your love by setting boundaries so your kids can explore and discover their passions safely.
Don't clip your child's wings. Your toddler's mission in life is to gain independence. So when she's developmentally capable of putting her toys away, clearing her plate from the table, and dressing herself, let her. Giving a child responsibility is good for her self-esteem (and your sanity!).
Don't try to fix everything. Give young kids a chance to find their own solutions. When you lovingly acknowledge a child's minor frustrations without immediately rushing in to save her, you teach her self-reliance and resilience.
Remember that discipline is not punishment. Enforcing limits is really about teaching kids how to behave in the world and helping them to become competent, caring, and in control.
Pick your battles. Kids can't absorb too many rules without turning off completely. Forget arguing about little stuff like fashion choices and occasional potty language. Focus on the things that really matter -- that means no hitting, rude talk, or lying.
Play with your children. Let them choose the activity, and don't worry about rules. Just go with the flow and have fun. That's the name of the game.
