The Eight Fundamental Lessons to Good Parenting: Research Study
#1 Sex Talk with Kids: Tried It?
Umm, this is nothing too pleasant for any parent to talk about, but the latest research says that we need to tell children about the real world that they have to face in life.
Often, I have heard parents saying that their kid is really ‘smart’, they know how to swirl around with gadgets and so on. And at the same time, they may end up trying to figure out who they are, how to identify their sexual inclinations, and so on..
Trust me- their biggest doubt of all- How did I come into this world, Mama (or Daddy)? And you will be like.... that an angel dropped you in my life or some fairy tale like that!
That does no good any more! With the internet, they are vulnerable to knowledge that sadly depicts life, sex, gender, life, love and drama in the most obscene matter.
So, before these subjects get out of your hands: Teach them from your side: Do the Respectful ‘Sex Talk’ in the right way! Learn it all here!
#2 Hug To Tame That Young Soul!
Often parents are scurrying behind those official meetings, family get-togethers, high tea parties, and so on. And in the midst of that, you sometimes would notice a lone kid playing in their own world.
Don’t let that happen to your child, as it would have side- effects on the child at a later point of life. Read The Magic of Physically Loving, Caring and Taming Your Child!

A Tom and Jerry cartoon session can beat the stress of any person- be it an adult or kid. Right? I sure did pass out a few laughs even during my college days. I had to see them right before my exams.
Same way, there are many agitated kids in every block and parents have a hard time trying to console time. Research show that cartoons can help them. Just ensure that the cartoons are more of an educational type rather than violent or abusive of any sort.
