Essential responsibilities of a parent1. Necessary food, clothing and shelter

This is ESSENTIAL! Before anything else, you must provide your kid with the basic needs for a proper life.

Without food, clothes and a house to live in your kid can’t have a life.

Besides your kid’s basic needs, try and make him happy. Make him laugh and, why not, laugh with him. Life is an adventure and it must be lived happily.

  1. Be a good example

As a parent, you are your kid’s first example in life. Everything he will see you do and talk, he will reproduce for himself.

Try and think what you want your kid to learn and do in everyday’s life. Now think about what you don’t want your kid to do. After this, apply through the right parenting way and you will surely see the results.  You might even think to change yourself, to become a better person, the kind of parent that your kid will be proud of.

  1. Education

Taking your kid to the proper daycare and school is a very important thing in your kid’s education.

You can also take part in your kid’s education. You can read to him and help him with his assignments from school. Support him and encourage him for learning activities.

Parents are continuing educators in the children’s life.

  1. Medical treatment

When your kid has health issues, as a parent, you are the one who has to take care of him.

And if it’s something more complicated, you are the one who must bring him to the doctor.

As parents, we all want our kids to be healthy.

  1. Safety

When you have a kid, you want him out of any dangers. You want him to be safe. You are his protection and the one who he can ask for help if he feels unsafe and in danger.

Also, a parent must provide a safe home for his child and help him feel safe outdoors by making the child wearing seat belts in vehicles and supervising them during different activities.
