Parenting with a Purpose II

Parenting successfully is only possible for parents who are committed to parenting with a purpose. Unfortunately, there are many things which affect our children and as parents, we do not have control over them. Oftentimes, our children exhibit behaviors that are not addressed and they become adults who take the path of destruction. It is very crucial that parents work diligently to raise their children to do what is right from infancy. Incidentally, it is impossible for our children to avoid wrong doing and chose what is right without knowing one from another. Importantly, a Parent must provide a safe environment and develop a role model and goals for their children. A Parent who has control on who influence their children has the ability to limit outside influences on them. Parenting with a Purpose allow parents to supervise their children as they train them to do what is right. Parents are encouraged to ensure that what is being implemented is beneficial to their children. As parents we train our children to seek forgiveness when wrong, doing choices in and around their environment, proper manners during meal time and constructive and healthy paly with peers and siblings. Parenting with a Purpose is very important to promote positive, healthy and mature movement into adulthood for our children. In conclusion, in order to parent successfully we must Parent with a Purpose.

As Parents it is very important that we have a purpose when parenting. According to Kansas City Chiefs head football coach, Herm Edwards, “a goal without a plan is a wish”. Parenting with a purpose means that parents have to develop a specific plan to accomplish the goals they have for their children. Most parents desire that their children develop sound attitudes, behaviors, values and a positive outlook on the environment around them. However, if a parent has been absent from their children’s life, it could be very difficult to accomplish that goal. In short, parenting with a purpose requires an understanding of the influences and individuals who occupy their children’s time. Therefore, developing effective communication is important.
