Give them attention
Apart from showing affection to your baby, it is important to give him/her attention. Your baby must feel your presence. You need to have discussion with him/her even if he/she cannot talk back to you. You must take time to have fun with your baby. And when he/she starts producing word or syllable for instance, you should encourage he/she with a reward like an applause or a new toy. Giving attention to your baby is an essential condition if you want to be a good parent. Never miss an opportunity to show your baby that he/she means more to you than anything else.
Teach them to be autonomous
Having an autonomous baby is very important. It allows you to be reassured when you are not with him/her. You must do with him/her activities that could stimulate her/him intelligence and senses. You must also let him/her make him/her own choices. You can for example ask him/her to choose one colour of shoes among two while dressing him/her. Parents should keep safe their children but you must not also overprotect them. Sometimes, it is better to let time to your baby to learn by himself/herself. It will help him/her be more confident while growing up.
When your baby reaches a certain age and becomes more autonomous, you must start thinking about setting limits for him/her. He/she may start to oppose you and throw tantrums over trivial matters. Not everything should be allowed. Tell him/her not to do this or that. You must show your authority. Because the limits you set will define what kind of teenager and adult he/she will be. However, the setting up of limits must be accompanied with regular positive attentions to balance your relationship with him/her.
