It’s important that parents have an open conversation with their child about what sexual assault is and what to do if someone is making them feel uncomfortable.

Below are some parenting tips from Krav Maga Worldwide, a global leader in defense training, on how to approach this difficult and sometimes uncomfortable subject with your child:

It’s time for your children to visit the pediatrician for a check-up! You gather your three anxious, jumping jelly beans into the minivan and start your journey to the doctor’s office. “I don’t want to get a shot!” “Mommy, are we almost there yet?” “Susie won’t stop poking me, Mom!” You finally arrive and they say it is going to be about a 20 minute wait. Oh, great. The easiest thing to do right now would be to stick an Ipad in front of your children’s faces and you know they will be occupied playing games until the doctor is ready to see them. But do you really want to resort to that? It is great that we have made such vast advances in technology and we have these amazing devices that have the ability to entertain for hours, but for children, this should be a regulated reward. It is not a bad idea to teach your children to spend their time doing other things to pass the time rather than relying on electronics.

Take this parenting advice and occupy your children with tech-free boredom busters!

By Noelle Downey

There’s no doubt about it — parenting can be a minefield. There are so many decisions to make and questions that don’t seem to have a clear right answer. While every good parent does everything they can to make sure that their child is safe, happy, and healthy, sometimes even the experts have conflicting parenting tips on the best ways to accomplish that goal. One of the most hot-button topics when it comes to parenting advice is circumcision.  While some experts argue that circumcision has health benefits like decreased risk of urinary tract infections, penile cancer or STI’s, others contend that the reduction of the risk is actually so small that it doesn’t warrant a corrective procedure, especially for infants who have no say in what some consider to be an invasive surgery. Differing cultural and religious views also tend to influence parents when it comes to whether or not they choose to have their children circumcised. Although circumcision is a medical procedure many take for granted, even some celebrity parents argue against it. Cupid is here with a list of the top five most vocal celebrity protestors of circumcision.

Whether or not you believe circumcision is right for your children, there are plenty of famous parents who say their top parenting tip for their celebrity babies is to avoid the cut altogether!

By Noelle Downey

When it comes to parenting, setting a good example for your children can be one of the trickiest parts. Although every good parent wants their kids to look up to them and be able to positively emulate their behavior, in reality, setting a good example can be much more complicated than it first seems. It requires constant attention to your actions and reactions around your child, and a good sense not only of your child’s perception of you, but of your perception of yourself. According to UsNews.com, Madeline Levine, renowned psychologist and author, spoke to this concept recently, saying that true integrity is shown, “by a thousand small examples.” Robyn Silverman, child and teen development specialist, agrees, “They hear your process,” she advises, noting that it’s important to articulate your good decisions and why you’re making them so the child can learn to appreciate your moral compass and follow your example.

Whether you’re a celebrity parent or not, it’s vital to set a good example for your children to insure that they grow up to be healthy, well-adjusted adults. Check out this parenting advice to demonstrate to your kids through your actions the way you want them to behave.

As time goes on, we as a society understand mental health better. With this new knowledge come concerns from mothers and fathers who are trying to navigate parenthood during this age of information. The new parents of today, millennials, struggle to find the balance raising children during these empathetic times. Thus, many have distanced themselves from disciplining their kids in order to avoid relationship problems. Tactics such as these are strange to generations prior, but recent scientific studies have shown the detrimental affects harsh discipline can have on a developing brain. According to BusinessInsider.com, “Certain parental behaviors that scientists have found could be linked to problems in children, like depression and anxiety, later in life.” So how can millennial parents discipline their children while maintaining their psyche?
