Motivate & Inspire: Try not to make a big scene out of your child’s mistakes, rather accept them and encourage them to correct their mistake with the right steps.
Let your child be his/her own decision maker: Don’t take decision yourself; let your child participate in decision making. This will give him/her confidence & self discipline.

Welcome their opinions: Don’t over power you thoughts on your kid, take their suggestions into considerations, acknowledge them and treat them as adults at times.
Simply follow each of the above 5 steps and become the best friend of your child in no time!
