When it comes to raising a family, it can be hard for you to be intentional about things. Most of the time, you’re in survival mode. When you first have a baby or when you’re trying to keep family life running smoothly, you’ll often find that you’re focusing on the here and now. However, when you really want to make sure that you’re being the best possible parent (and person, for that matter), that you can be, it’s so important for you to be as intentional as possible. When you’re intentional, you’re more present and your actions are directed at an intended outcome. Rather than just going with the flow. In parenting, this approach can help you harness your child’s success for the future. Or, at least influence it. Let’s take a look at how.

1. Stay Calm

To start with, you need to make sure that you’re in the best possible place to do this. It means you need to be positive and be able to stay calm. If you’re acting on emotion or getting stressed out, this may be difficult for you to execute. So try to think about managing your mindset, in order to get the best results for your children.

2. Nurture Their Minds

Then, when you’re ready to tackle this, you’re going to want to focus on nurturing their minds. To do this, think about growth, intelligence, skills – whatever they might need. From reading and encouraging them to ask questions, visiting different museums and watching videos, there’s a lot you can to do nurture their inquisitive little minds.

3. Nurture Their Creativity

From here, you should also find that it’s incredibly helpful for you to try to bring out as much creativity in them as possible. Even if they do not go on to have creative futures, this skill can benefit them immensely. So whether you look into Montessori Schools, different creative classes or you look to be creative with them at home, make time for this. From writing and drawing to imagining and crafting or building, there’s so much you can do with them here.

4. Focus On Their Interests

Over time, it should become quite clear what they’re interested in. So here, you can then start to tailor your activities towards what they love to do or what they’re good at. For this, you need to be observant and make sure that you’re helping them t grow in these key areas with classes or tutors to if need be.

5. Be Attentive

Now, we all know that being an overbearing or a pushy parent isn’t always for the best. Not for the child, at least. So you have to be mindful for this. But, at the same time, you definitely don’t want to be too distant. You need to ensure that you’re attentive to their needs and what kind of support they may need. Yes, independence is important and they need to be able to stand on their own two feet, but you should also guide them and encourage them, by being as attentive as you need to.
