Parenting isn’t all that hard.
There’s really nothing to it except:
- Keeping your child alive
- Making sure they’re properly fed
- Getting them enough sleep
- Helping them do well in school
- Teaching them to be good, moral people
You know. Just those couple of little things.
And when it comes to getting your child to do, or not do, the things you need them to on their way to becoming fully-functioning and healthy adults, you often need a two-pronged approach.
You can use rewards, and you can use punishments or consequences.
