Parents play a pivotal role in the lives of their children. You are your children's first role model. They look up to you for almost everything and they emulate the character that you possess. They listen to you first before they listen to others and you have an ultimate say in their lives.

There are several roles of a parent to their child/children and some of which are:

Listen to them: A lot of parents don't listen, they only prefer to talk, be heard but they hardly listen to what their kids have to say or contribute to a discussion because they feel they know better than their kids. This is so wrong. I have seen kids shy away from discussing certain things with their parents simply because they know their parents wouldn't listen to whatever they'll say.

Pray for them: One very important role of parents is to pray for their kids. I have heard people who say, "my mother's prayer keeps me going". Parents should always speak positive words to their kids as this would go a long way in shaping the future of the child.

Teach them: That you are not a school teacher is not enough reason for not teaching your kids. You should be your children's first teacher. Teach them the way of life, what they should and shouldn't do. Let the kids know you as their first teacher and always teach them the right thing. So then they are out, they can proudly say, " my father/mother taught me this".....

Chastise them: There is a saying which goes, "Spare the rod and spoil the child". A lot of parents have spoilt their children simply by keeping away the rod. The rod is used for correction and resetting their senses back to normal. Lol. Don't overuse it, neither should you use it on Tuesday kids everyday.

Parenting is indeed a great responsibility. Children are the greatest gifts from the almighty and as all know, raising children right from birth is a journey filled with tensions, worries and moments of both joy and pain. 

The parent becomes a parent when a child is born and it is like you are given a sudden role in life and an important one at that. Like from burping the baby, to panicking when  the baby has an injection and the fever after that, the sleepless nights, the need to change the diapers and if the bed is wet, having to change the whole bedsheet - the first few years is a period of total sacrifice. 

The child grows up and it is time to teach. If you have had no teaching experience, you will soon get it when you teach your baby to read and write and spell during the kindergarten years. 

The school years are also a joy, joy in experiencing your child learning to express his/her creativity, the field trips and the grades and the results, the meeting and mingling with other parents and the joy of seeing your child grow up slowly. 

Then it is a rush during the teenage years - mind you, this is indeed a difficult phase. Your child will be wary of your physical expressions of love before friends, the choice of clothes, the hanging out with friends and all. be prepared. Give freedom but make sure that the end of the string is with you. 

  • A parent must be careful not to spoil the child.
  • Money cannot buy love, spend quality time with your child.
  • Teach values to your child and make sure that you as a parent also follows the principles that you taught.
  • The child should be taught the value of money.
  • Never raise a spoilt brat.
  • The child should learn to respect every being.
  • If the child shows any sign or symptom of fear or anger, please sit down nd have a good talk and find out the real reason. Never allow the child to handle the internet, alone. There are many people out there who take undue advantage of kids. Be careful. 
  • Make sure you take your child out for nature walks and let them learn to appreciate nature from childhood itself. This will make them responsible citizens in future.

Each parent has the obligation to furnish his or her kids with the fundamental necessities of life, including sustenance, dress, and haven. This obligation more often than not ends when the kid is liberated, which by and large happens at eighteen years old, when the youngster moves on from secondary school, when the kid enters the military, or when the kid weds,

however the help commitment can reach out past that point if the child can't bolster himself or herself and would turn into an open commitment without familiar help. The law for the most part does not manage the dimension of help that is furnished when the youngsters live with their parents, however when, through divorce or different conditions, the kid is living with one parent, there are strict principles about the measure of money related help given by the non-custodial parent.

In many occasions, parents likewise have the obligation to give important therapeutic consideration to their kids. On the off chance that the parent decline life-sparing restorative treatment for their youngsters, the state may intercede against the parents' desires, regardless of whether they settled on their choice on religious grounds.

Parents should likewise ensure that their kids meet school participation necessities. They do, be that as it may, have the privilege to choose whether the youngster's training will be in a government funded school, a tuition based school, or through self-teaching.

Parents play a very important role on their children's lives. They are the very first person that the children mingles with so every action that a parent does maybe followed by their children. 

Parents are the children's role model. That is why, in front of the children, a parent should act in a good way so that the children can emulate it. 

The first role of a parent to their children is to provide them with everything they need. As a parent, we are tasked to look onto all the things that our children needs. Because they still cannot provide for their own, they need someone to depend on. Parents should provide their children with all the basic needs, and a good education.

Next role of a parent is to guide them to become a good person. Aside from providing their basic needs, a parent must see to it that their children grows according to the morals and standard set by God and the community. How a child behaves in a community depends on how they are being raised by their parents. If a child misbehaves, then it is the parents accountability.

A parent's role in a child's life is one of importance. You are responsible for molding another human being, into a person with high moral standards and values.

As a parent, your job is to protect, nurture, teach and provide for your child. You are to teach them how to be loving, because they do copy what you do. So if you treat others poorly, they will do the same. Teach them how to take responsibility for their actions and how best to make the right decisions. And be both a parent and a friend to your child, so they can come to you for advice.

It is your responsibility as a parent, to provide food, shelter, clothing and other needs of child. A loving environment and an abuse free home, is a necessity for any child.

If you fail as a parent, then you add more negativity and evil to the society.

Parents play an extremely important role in their kids lives. They are the first and foremost source of learning for the child. In fact, the child has to depend on food, clothing, shelter, language, everything one can think of, for almost everything on his or her parents. What the kids are given to eat and how they live will directly affect the health of the kids. What they are taught and the kind of communication they witness, will shape their thinking and psychology for their whole life. parents have s supremely important role towards their kids, imo.

First of all they should take good care of them. And they should be a positive role model for them. They should teach them to become good human beings. Well at least that is the theory....

Parents play a major role in the lives of their children as to that affects the children psychologically compared to the kids raised up with single parents. But whichever is a child's fate. Humans are humans no matter if you were raised by a single parents or not. Here are some important factors that should be considered by any parents when thinking on how best to train their children.

• TEACH THEM TO FEAR GOD

• SEND THEM TO SCHOOL

• GIVE THEM SEX EDUCATION AT A TENDER AGE BUT NOT SO TENDER

• GET TO KNOW THEIR FRIENDS

• SHOW CARE

• BE LOVING

• TAKE THEM OUT ON PICNIC

• SEE MOVIES WITH THEM

• SCOLD THEM WHEN THEY ARE WRONG

• PUNISH OR BEAT THEM WHEN THEY DO A BAD THING

• TELL THEM TO CHOOSE THEIR FRIENDS WISELY

• DO NOT CHASE AWAY THEIR FRIENDS WHEN THEY VISIT

• PAY ATTENTION TO THEM AT ALL TIMES

• TRY YOUR BEST TO PROVIDE THEIR NEEDS WHEN YOU CAN

With the few suggestions I've made, I think parents will be able to train their kids in a Godly way.
