What tools can enhance good parenting skills?

What is the value of YouTube in parenting?

YouTube has become a great parenting tool because it is very useful in bringing parents and young children together earlier in the children’s lives. At a very young age, parents can use YouTube videos to introduce their children to their favorite songs that were release over 20-30 years ago while they dance and sing to the songs together. It is also a way for parents to teach children what was culturally acceptable in their time and to instruct children about acceptable behaviors today. It is always a pleasure for young children to call their parents just to request a YouTube video from over 20 years ago by either humming the tune or singing it just so that they can dance to it together. Even a decade later, grade school children still get nostalgic as they call their parents’ attention to the tunes they once danced to together.

What role do other social media play in parenting?

Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, and TikTok have become very hot platforms for parents when it comes to influencing children in the right way to live and make efficient life decisions. These other forms of social media are used to share videos, images, & content for entertainment, knowledge, and poor decisions. Parents use their content as an opportunity to laugh with their children and most importantly, share advice on the right strategy to live in order to avoid any regret in the future. Both parents and children can call each other to view the exciting content or it can be shared through texts and emails.

How does prayer help in parenting?

Reading the Bible almost daily to your children and praying with your children is a great way for parents to spend time with their children. Reading biblical values with children and explaining the content to them helps them in making adequate decisions about life and social skills. When praying or talking with God, it is a great opportunity to pray about what you expect from each of your children and encourage them in areas where they seem to be falling short. Psychologically, by praying to a higher power or higher being shows the importance of the request about their lives and to know what their parents expects from them in the future.  Get 15% - 40% off Edo Language CDs & Books
