Successful Parenting

By: Pierre du Plessis

Research on the internet about available parenting advice and information for parents on how to successfully rear and treat babies, children, pre-teens and adolescent teenagers, has revealed a wide and extensive database of articles and products on the subjects of successful child development, successful child rearing and successful parental influence.

One can find informative literature on most topics dealing with the problems associated with the normal developmental stages of childhood, including treatment of child health disorders.

Most parents are fit and equipped to deal with child health related matters such as child nutrition and child illnesses, due to the abundant availability of facilities and information on these subjects from hereditary word of mouth contacts, clinics, health centres, the pharmaceutical industry and the medical profession.

Child cognitive, intellectual and psychological development can be a culmination of genes, circumstances, environment and parental influence, of which parental influence is the most dominant and critical factor to impact on child development and behaviour. With the right knowledge, parental influence can also be the easiest to apply for the beneficial development of cognitive, intellectual and psychological processes in children.

Most parents are not equipped to use parental influence in the best positive way. The reason behind this is simply because they marry young, have children and are then caught up in the everyday chores of child rearing and financial survival, deterring them from finding time to equip themselves with the necessary knowledge, to impact positively on child cognitive, intellectual and psychological development. Therefore child development is mostly a result of accidental development by prevailing haphazard circumstances and child inner-self choices.

Child development is not a sole responsibility of schools and teachers. Children are far more influenced by parents than by teachers. Parental influence is the single most important factor in the development of children, especially so in the early stages of development.

Most parents, after years of parenting, when their children have already reached adulthood, when reflecting back in time, say they wish they could do it over again. If they could do it over again, they think they could do a better job of parenting, with all the knowledge, experience and wisdom they have accumulated over the years. If they could only possess the knowledge earlier, when their children needed it the most, their children could also have ended up being stronger and better persons.

Information for parents are now more readily available, thanks to the internet. The information covering all the stages of child development, from birth to adulthood, are however, widely spread out in different pockets on different web sites all over the internet and cannot be accessed without extensive research and cost. Leaders Circle Family Web Club has therefore bridged the gap by bundling products together, to cover all the stages of successful child development, successful child rearing and successful parental influence, in one place.
