There are no shortcuts to parenting, but there are always rooms for improvement to keep the family bonded and the kids well-mannered. It can be compared to gardening with the family members as the plants or garden statues, each with a role to play to ensure family growth. These statues are absolutely perfect for gardeners who love dogs and look after the basic needs.
While plants need water, soil, and the sun to grow, children have the right to access shelter, food, and clothes. As a parent, you have to work in order to provide the basic needs for your children to grow and for the family to prosper. Aside from the basic requirements, you also have to make your children feel loved, for unattended plants wither and die.
Make a plan
You don’t grow the varieties of plants just because you like them. Some plant species do not thrive in certain areas, and others require special soil or cannot be placed alongside other plant types. This is why you need to make a plan for creating and grooming your garden. Each of your children is a special seed that needs specific requirements. You have to know their qualities, especially as they grow so that you can focus on giving them the care and material things that will hone and help them grow.
One plant that may bloom in summer cannot withstand the cold weather. Some plants need constant water, but some will die when you water them every day. This is the same for all family members.
Each one of you has a specific need – in food, affection, strengths, weaknesses, what makes you sad or happy, and others. Do not expect too much from a child just because another child is excelling in their craft. You have to learn how to embrace the differences and love your family members equally no matter who and what they turned out to be.
Boundaries make it simpler to succeed in gardening. You set the specific space where you will grow your plants and decorate with garden statues. It makes everything harmonious. It is the same thing you should apply in the household. You have to make house rules and enforce them, especially during the growing years of your children.
They must know their boundaries of having fun and being responsible for their actions. Through this, your family will have a structure. You will assign who will do specific tasks in the house each day – who is responsible for throwing the trash, who will wash the dishes, or who will make breakfast. This will hone your kids to become better individuals as they become adults.
Shape your kids
You trim your plants to prolong their lives while at the same time, make them look better. You would want to shape your kids as early as possible to prepare them for the future. Spend time with them and teach your kids valuable lessons in life that will shape them into responsible and kind individuals.
Pull out the weeds early
You need to get rid of the weeds to ensure the health of your plants. You cannot wait too long before getting them out because these weeds multiply too fast. It is normal for any family to encounter weeds or problems. You have to deal with them early on so that they can get resolved without affecting the relationship and bond of the family members.
Your home is like a garden with all the members serving as the different plant varieties. Make sure that you all prosper together and become the garden statues that will protect your home and guard each other as long as you live.
