I have been watching this guy”s funny youtube clips on ” how to… ” with his own children. He is from Auckland , New Zealand Jordan Watson. In his classic laid back dad look he is a delight to watch on his Facebook page which I follow and then simply tag or share to my DH and other friends whom I think will also get entertained by this bloke.
I am not sure how “real” his vid clips are but to be honest, I think what he does is pretty much close to what is really happening to new parents out there. We are one of those newbie parents out there and it is not an easy breezy thing . Sure we do love our LO but everyday there are moments that we get clueless or lost . ( but we never let LO run away from us and she is still learning to do Hi 5)
As a Christian parent the best how to be a parent guide for us is the book of Proverbs Chapter 22:6 ” Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” ( ESV) Very concise yet straight to the point . As parents, we should be the first teachers of or children. We are instructed by God to teach them the right values from the early age and that we set good examples to our children . This will create a strong impact on them as they get older and it becomes a second nature for them .so that they will grow up with good values to become an asset rather than being a burden to their society.
I still have a long way to go on learning to be a parent ( it is a dynamic process anyway) But I hope that my DH and I will be able to set a good foundation in our LO as she grows up and that she will never forget the values that we have taught her and someday she will also be sharing these to her future offspring.
