Know The Stages Of Parenting

The act of raising a child by its parents is known as parenting. It usually means supporting their child by physical, emotional, social, spiritual and intellectual development from infancy to adulthood. Family planning refers to the decision-making whether you should become a parent or not. Worldwide 40% of pregnancies are not planned by parents, and more than 30 million babies are born by unplanned pregnancy. Let’s dig some more into how you can become a better parent.

Stages of parenting

  1. Newborn parenting: The responsibility of parenthood begins from here. For a baby the most basic needs are such as food, sleep, cloth and a comforting environment, which the parent needs to fulfill. A newborn baby sleeps way more than anyone.

A baby’s only form of communication is by crying. They respond by cuddling, smiling and caressing. Newborns require feeding every few hours. Newborns comfort themselves by sucking the thumb and by sucking pacifiers.

  1. Toddlers: Toddlers are those who come between the ages of 12 months to 36 months old who are more active than infants. They started to do working, running, jumping, playing and much more engaging activity. They are excited about learning how to do simple tasks by themselves. For toddler parents are more involved in showing them how to do things then doing it for them. They try to mimic their parents and learn some vocabulary to increase their communication skills and manage their emotions. Their parents try to teach them social etiquette by being polite with them and being disciplined. Toddlers are very curious about everything and like to explore every little thing.


  1. 3. Child: Childs like to become more independent and make a lot of friends. They want to make their own decisions in many hypothetical situations. They demand constant attention but learn to deal with boredom. They are emotional, helpful and capable for anything. They learn a lot by household activity so the parent has to train them to do their chores and be disciplined. Parents should join their kids in their study to help them, play with them like their friends, take them to kitchen let them observe thing and teach them some of your favorite dishes, so they feel encourage and confident in everything.
  1. Adolescents: Adolescents are at a time of high risk for children, where their freedom can be very good or bad for them. The parents should not leave their kid by saying that you are now big enough to take care of yourself because that is not the case. In this time they come across a lot of changes in their brain, body and emotionally. Parents should influence their child on how to behave, take opportunities, make decisions and take care of them emotionally.
