Positive parenting tips for school-age children

Parenting is not everyone’s cup of tea. Neither does parenting look easy, nor does it feel easy. But one thing about parenting is that in the end, it feels worth everything when you see your child going through different ages of life such as a baby, a toddler, a school-age child, a teenager, and finally an adult.

Understanding School-Age Children: Developmental Characteristics

While excellent parenting skill is necessary at each and every stage described above, today I'm going to focus on one in particular: the school-age stage, and discuss how putting effort into these tips can mold your child into a person who is so amazing.

Nurturing Confidence and Independence: Promoting Self-Esteem in Children

Your child needs to consume a wide range of nutrient-dense meals from all of the food categories, ensuring that they receive the vitamins and minerals they require. So, aim to supply healthful options to ensure that your child receives the right nutrition and develops healthy, happy eating habits. Make fruit, vegetables, and whole grains visible and accessible to your youngster.

Active Listening and Effective Communication: The Key to Building Trust

Help them develop a sense of responsibility:

School-age is a stage where your child has most probably developed a sense of knowing and doing several things such as dressing themselves, catching a ball more easily using only their hands, and tying their shoes. So it’s the perfect time for you to help them build up a sense of responsibility by requesting their assistance with small household chores like setting the table, feeding the pet, watering small plants, etc.

Keep them physically active:

Children in the elementary school age range require an hour of daily moderate to strenuous physical activity. Your child's recommended amount of physical exercise can be met through recess, gym class sports, outdoor activities, and aerobic activities such as running, playing soccer, or riding a bicycle.

Find lone time together:

The school-age stage is a rush stage for both you and your child so finding some quiet time together is much needed. You can obtain some quiet time for the both of you by going for an evening stroll or even a drive between events.

Develop a productive sleeping routine:

Children who are of school age need between 9 and 12 hours of sleep every night. Even though naps are generally out of the question, taking a break in the afternoon can be beneficial at not only school-age but at every stage of life.
