1.A responsible parenthood is simply defined as the “will” and ability of parents to respect and do the needs and aspirations of the family and children. It is the ability of a parent to detect the need, happiness and desire of the children and helping them to become responsible and reasonable children.

By Praising your children for things they do well.

Help your child develop healthy self-esteem.

Encourage them to make their own decisions.

Meet your children's emotional needs with love and affection.

Treat kids with respect and ask for respect in return.

3.PARENTS must provide for the material and spiritual welfare of their children. They must love their children in a responsible manner and provide for their healthy growth. They must inspire their children by their own exemplary life and must never neglect to correct their faults. Parents are responsible to provide the necessary food, clothing, shelter and medical care insofar as they are able.
They are equally responsible for providing sound education and a sound knowledge of their religion as well as moral training of their children. Parents must keep their children in healthy environments and rear them to be useful, self –supporting, loyal citizens, and informed, practical members of society.

A responsible parenthood is simply
defined as the “will” and ability of
parents to respect and do the needs
and aspirations of the family and
children. It is the ability of a parent to
detect the need, happiness and desire
of the children and helping them to
become responsible and reasonable
children.

1. Parental role - to provide physical,
material and continuous guidance to the
children in order for them to become
responsible members of the family and
society
2. Emotional adjustment - to be
emotionally prepared and adjusted to cope
up with the challenges of life
3. Family Relationship - to perform each
role and create a harmonious relationship
4. Knowledge in child rearing - educated
parents are better prepared to face the
challenges of parenthood

1. They teach more with actions (and
examples) and less with words.
Various studies have proved that
children learn more from observing and
experiencing the world than by taught
words. Responsible parents provide the
right examples and behavior to their
children to learn from. Instead of saying
‘be polite’, they demonstrate politeness
by being polite in their everyday life.
2. They encourage more and criticize
less
One of the biggest responsibilities of
parents is to instill confidence in their
children and this can be achieved by
being more encouraging and motivating
of the children’s strengths and good
qualities. Constant criticism can rip the
children off their self esteem and
demoralizes them. It can take them into
withdrawal mode and secretiveness,
while regular appreciation helps in
building strong, confident and positive
children. Responsible parents reward
good behavior.
3. They spend quality time with their
children
Reports have suggested that when it
comes to spending time with kids,
quality trumps quantity. We all would
prefer an hour of peaceful, undistracted,
quality time with our loved ones over
four hours full of distractions, divided
attention and undue arguments. They
spend quality time with their kids that
helps in developing a deeper bond of
love and understanding between the
parents and their children and create
their own rituals like the ritual of two
minutes of mum-ditation.
4. They act as responsible individuals
themselves
Like I mentioned in the point no. 1,
children learn more from examples.
Responsible parents behave responsibly
in front of their children. As responsible
individuals, they care for mother nature,
be kind to others, practice honesty and
are authentic.
5. They encourage dialogues with the
kids
Encouraging dialogues with the kids
have twofold benefits: it makes them feel
that they are important to have their
opinions heard and it helps them in
developing the art of self expression. Lot
of issues can be solved with open
communication and having a healthy,
logical dialogue. Responsible parents
listen actively to their kids and set it as
the stepping stone to a relevant and
useful discussion.
6. They stay connected as a couple
In a study done by Robert Epstein and
Shannon Fox, they reported ‘relationship
skills’ as one the three most important
‘parenting competencies.’ According to
the study, parents who show great
relationships skills as a couple raise
happier kids. Responsible parents
behave like happy and connected
couples to give good example to kids.
7. They understand their kids’ love
language
Gary Chapman gave us five love
languages for kids. Responsible parents
not only learn their kids’ love language
but also try to communicate with them
in the same language. This helps
immensely in addressing the children’s
needs directly and filling any emotional
need gap in kids.
8. They let their children take their own
decisions
Letting the children take their own
decisions helps them in self discovery
and in feeling important. It should begin
at a young age but at the same time
what decisions are left upon them
depends on their age and maturity.
Instead of allowing children to decide
whatever they want, responsible parents
give them choices and let them choose.
Slowly as their sense of judgement
grows, this array of choice can be
widened.
9. They emphasize more on moral
values and less on materialistic things
Time and again it has been proved that
in the end, moral values stand taller than
materialistic possessions. Responsible
parents place more significance on
values like honesty, kindness,
compassion and integrity and less on
materialistic aspects like grades,
competition, expensive things and
grooming. They understand that a sound
character goes a longer way than a
better grade.
10. They take parenting easily by giving
good memories
They do not follow helicopter parenting
and nor are they completely lousy
parents. They are right there — raising
better kids by giving them the a happy
home to live in. They create good
memories for their children that often
last a lifetime.
