Parenthood itself is a difficult task and every parent must share their personal grieves with their friends.
While discussing such issues the experiences of other parents will help the parents understand that they are not alone and also make them learn new things with others experience.
Parenting advice is something, which every parent must curiously listen to and take it in the right spirit. When someone is expressing something that looks like an advice then you must listen to him or her and take it in the right manner. It is not that you are not a good parent and someone is trying to correct you. It is that the other person wants to share their experience in handling a particular situation.
During parenting no one else other than another parent will be able to understand your feelings and give you a proper parenting advice. Most of the parents share the same emotions when their children perform well in the school and are hurt when a classmate bullies the child.
Parenting by itself is a community and one can learn a lot being a part of this community. One more important factor is that during parenting the parent must learn to take advices in the right spirit. It does not mean that one has to listen to everything what others say. One must find another parent who is in a similar situation and try to learn from their experiences and adopt it.
Another important aspect in parenting is the willingness to listen to parenting advice. As a parent you need not prove to someone that you have the authority on your children and you can take appropriate decision on their activities.
It is a challenge to every parent to give their child the best possible thing within their means and make them grow in a better environment. The authority of the parent does not mean that they should not listen to the children and take up their views. To be a wonderful parent one must carefully handle parenting at different stages and ensure that they give their best to their children.
