Easy Guide for Modern Parents

The modern cool parent is defined by their dynamic approach to cultivating an experience-driven lifestyle for their children, whether that means letting them spend hours on play station or keeping an eye on a child’s fever via app-connected wearable.


With the times changing at a gradual pace, free from some of the strictness of their parents generation, this new crop of parents actively pursue being the best parents ( insert some cool and swag quotient here) they can be and hope to pass on their modern values, as able to be observed in such ventures as gender-neutral children’s clothing brands and kid-friendly technological devices.

Focused on participating in enriching activities that also facilitate family bonding, the modern parent is eager to explore all options to make sure they are providing their children with all possible resources when it comes to development. As such, the uber-cool parents on the block might be found taking family cooking classes, recreation or physical classes or even taking part in a family yoga and meditation retreat.

Here are some ways to cease the gap between you and your child in everyday life:

Set’em free


Don’t nag your kids about little things – Their room is a mess? Its past midnight and they’re still up? Don’t worry and don’t nag, just let them be. Chances are, they’ll eventually get sick of living in a concentration camp and clean their mess out.

Leap of faith


“What were you doing with that boy?” “Why did you smile when your phone buzzed?” You should trust your children, and that can only happen if you’re an active part of their lives. So stay in and watch a movie this Sunday, you have some catching up to do!

Patience is the key


“You don’t understand, Mom!” Well they’re probably right, you don’t. But then again, they don’t know what it’s like to be a parent either. Fights are normal, and everyone says things they don’t mean. So brush it off and don’t let it get to you.

Vacation calling


Pack your bags and go camping. The phones won’t work and there aren’t many places they can run off to in a jungle. Family holidays are a great way to get to know your kids and have some fun, so what are you waiting for?

Stay naturally you


You meet your kids’ friends and feel obligated to crack a joke? Well, don’t. Chances are that if things were awkward earlier, they would probably get worse. Just give them good food, and they’ll all warm up to you in a jiffy.

Don’t YO them


Using slang on your kids and their friends is a big no no. It doesn’t make you look cool, sorry to burst your bubble. Trust me; just stick to the conventional language.

Be a great role model


Your kids learn a lot from you, even if they don’t like to admit it. So if you’re a smoker or an alcoholic, don’t be surprised if it rubs off on them. Be the best person that you can be, and you’ll find yourself transforming into the best parent you can be!
