You are your little one’s first teacher and their role model. Just like you, your little baby also wants to become like his/her mother. So, it is important that from the moment your child comes into your life, you start doing things you want them to learn someday. Only then will you be able to shape their personality correctly.
2. Trust your instincts
Multiple people will give you multiple advices. Though it doesn’t mean they are wrong, it might still mean that what they are suggesting might not exactly relate to you. In this situation, the best thing that you can do is to go with your instinct. These maternal instincts are a very powerful force in nature and they will surely show you the right path.
3. Explore the world with them
Just keeping your little one indoors and confined to the house is neither feasible nor recommended. Go out, explore your neighbourhood and the city with them. Let your little one also be amazed by all the human marvels and nature’s gifts. They are sure to enjoy it all and you two will have a bonding experience.
4. Teach them to be humble and kind
Though you might already be doing just this, it is still important that you lead by example and show your little one how to be humble and kind.

It is important that children start becoming independent from a young age. After a certain age, your child will have to start becoming independent anyway. So, it is only feasible and that you start teaching them about it from the young age itself.
6. Help create a proper sleep schedule
Apart from everything you are doing for them, it is important that you help see your child the importance of sleep. Our brain needs proper relaxation and it will not get it unless we sleep.
