Parenting can be very challenging. However, you need to try your best to be a parent that your children would love to emulate. 

You need to avoid some common mistakes that have a lifetime negative impact on your children. 

Here are three mistakes you should never make:

1. Failing to discipline your child

Discipline is everything in life. 

This makes it a mandatory obligation for every parent to discipline his or her child appropriately. 

You should never feel tired of disciplining your child.

If you fail to discipline them today, the world will take up this role in future, but in a ruthless manner, you will regret.

2. Not listening to your child

Besides discipline, you need to give your child a listening ear. 

The culture of always looking for faults to correct is a misguided form of parenting. 

Help your child build a special trust in you by listening to his/her concerns, opinions, fears and anything they want to talk about.

3. Avoiding sex education

It takes courage for you as a parent to start talking about sex with your children. 

This topic starts as early as when your young child asks you where you got his junior brother or sister. 

Once your child learns that he/she is not supposed to ask you any question related to sex, they will look for alternative sources that might misguide them. 

Make your child comfortable enough to ask you this question that can also affect his/her health.#MyLifestyle
