CHIDREN...THE BEST CREATION OF PARENTS....TO MAKE OR BREAK THE HUMAN is not a life cost but investment of human give and take.....
Posted by Vishva News Reporter on February 1, 2010



....The most remembered and enduing experience in human life
is to have a baby and become parents,
but this can also be a very demanding time.
It is a complex life process to bring up a newborn baby
and you will require plenty of patience and effort
to raise your child till the child
is developed fully and can take care of himself....

......Parents have the most difficult job,
but at the same time it is often sprinkled with
 incredibly inspiring and rewarding moments.....

You spend the first two years of their life
Teaching them to walk and talk.
Then you spend
The next sixteen telling them to sit down and shut up

“I have found the best way
to give advice to your children is to
find out what they want and
then advise them to do it.

~Harry S. Truman
 (May 8, 1884 – December 26, 1972, 33rd President of the United States from 1945–1953).

Parenting is the process of promoting and supporting the physical, emotional, social, and intellectual development of a child from infancy to adulthood. Parenting refers to the activity of raising a child rather than the biological relationship.[1]

In the case of humans, it is usually done by the biological parents of the child in question,[2] although governments and society take a role as well. In many cases, orphaned or abandoned children receive parental care from non-parent blood relations. Others may be adopted, raised by foster care, or be placed in an orphanage.

The goals of human parenting are debated. Usually, parental figures provide for a child's physical needs, protect them from harm, and impart in them skills and cultural values until they reach legal adulthood, usually after adolescence. Among non-human species, parenting is usually less lengthy and complicated, though mammals tend to nurture their young extensively. The degree of attention parents invest in their offspring is largely inversely proportional to the number of offspring the average adult in the species produces.....To continue studying the art and science of parenting please go to the end of next web page....

(For Canadian Globe and Mail: Monday, Sep. 21, 2009 )

I don’t have children, yet. But in the past year I’ve helped welcome seven babies into the world. I've watched as my family and friends adjusted, some better than others, to this new addition in their lives.

Many new parents say the first year is often the toughest one - physically, mentally and financially.


New Canadian mothers are entitled to 15 weeks of pregnancy leave after giving birth. After that, there’s an additional 35 weeks of parental that either parent can take.

And although the stay-at-home parent can collect employment Insurance benefits, provided they qualify, they amount to only a portion of Mom or Dad's previous full-time salary. Last week, a federal board ruled that parents of twins can each receive EI benefits for full parental leaves.

At the same time your household income drops, your expenses are rising. The first year of a child’s life is usually one of the priciest, costing the average parents upwards of $8,000 in extra expenses.

If you’re expecting a bundle of joy in the near future, check out this baby cost calculator for a detailed list of what items baby will need and how much they could set you back. Keep in mind the information is in U.S. dollars and that American parents, who head back to work much earlier, pay for day care or a nanny for most of that first year.

Outside of child care, there are plenty of necessary baby items that can certainly add up: crib, playpen, bassinet, changing table, baby bath and car seat, to name a few.

You’ll pay more for additional usage of utilities like electricity and water - just think of all that additional laundry - as well as clothing and food. has some good tips for new parents looking to cut costs in the first year. When it comes to furniture, for example, their advice is to make a list of what you really need. You can find a sturdy new crib for around $250. Of course, you can also find one for $1,250. But don’t assume a higher price tag means a safer product. All cribs have to meet the same government safety standards.

When you’re looking at cribs, consider one that adapts as your child grows, converting from a crib to a toddler bed to a day bed. That can save you money down the road. and are two sites that offer reviews and price comparisons for a variety of makes and models.

You can also post a request for items on local parenting sites or on

Often times people only use or need baby items for a few months and then they’re ready to get rid of it at a fraction of the original price.

For the 75 (seriously) or so diapers that new parents are changing a week, consider signing up at diaper manufacturers' websites to get coupons – every little bit helps for these necessary purchases.

Stores like Babies “R” Us offer coupons periodically on a variety of basic baby items, including diapers. Just sign up at the store to receive coupons by mail or online for promo codes. It’s also a good idea to list some of the basics on your baby registry, so that your friends and family can pitch in on big-ticket items like a car seat, stroller, and high chair.

Another option for cost-savings is to consider going the cloth diaper route. Cloth diapers have come a long way but they certainly aren’t for everyone. You’ll have to weigh the pros and cons. From a financial standpoint, you will save money using cloth over disposable. However, keep in mind that to save money you need to wash the cloth diapers yourself instead of sending them to a laundering service.

One of the best ways to save on baby items is to ask for hand-me-downs from friends with older kids.

Five out of the seven new babies I know are girls. They rotate clothes, toys and baby gear. This especially makes sense for age-specific gear like baby swings and bumbos, things a baby outgrows quickly and then end up collecting dust in the basement.


Another way to offset the costs of raising a child is to take advantage of some of the tax deductions, tax credits, and other benefits offered by the federal and provincial governments.

You may not qualify for all of these, but you’ll certainly be eligible for some.

Make sure to apply as early as you can, as it takes time to process the applications.

The Universal Child Care Benefit (UCCB) is a government program that gives Canadian families $100 (pre-tax) each month for each child under the age of six. Although it was designed to help cover child care costs, your baby does not need to be in a daycare for you to receive this benefit. However, you do need to fill out an application in order to receive the payment. Apply online here.

New parents should also look into the Canada Child Tax Benefit (CCTB), which is aimed at low and middle-income families. The amount is based on the age and number of children, family income, and child care expenses. Benefits are paid monthly and are non-taxable. There is a basic benefit for each child under 18. Check out this website or call 1-800-387-1193 for more information.

You may be able to deduct child care expenses from your income when you’re filling out your tax return, so make sure to keep receipts for your child care expenses—from nannies to nursery schools, day and overnight camps. The Canada Revenue Agency site site has more information on the deductions.

Or, organize a get together once a month for the new parents you know, to check in and see how everyone is managing and what they’re learning. And, it’s a great opportunity to swap some of that old baby stuff you have lying around and take home some new items.

Commandments for parenting


1. You have to be consistent while parenting and do what you say you will. Children are aware how far they can go when you are unfailing and mean when you say.

2. Children must be made to contribute, with and no extra payment. Children may not do it happily but they must help out at home. Ask yourself the question as to what your children are doing and if others depend on it?

3. Be encouraging all the time and keep in mind that with praise and encouragement children perform better as compared to punishment and criticism. Don’t be a critic but a support for your child. With encouragement a child is able to connect his confidence with the process and not just the result of their work.

When you wish for capable and responsible children, treat them as responsible individuals. You have to give responsibility to children for them to develop responsibility.

5. Typically youngsters and children can see just one aspect of things and you must take what they say with some salt. This is not lying, but children have the tendency to exaggerate or view things from their point of view.

6. Children must be showered with love and care to your children and say you love them a minimum of once in a day. They will feel more confident and secure  to know that they are loved whatever their age.

7. See to it that your children are behaving well and be attentive towards their positive behavior as compared to the negative ones. Things which you focus on will expand and if you concentrate on good behavior, it will grow. Let children explain what they have done so that your children also realize their good behavior and continue with it.

8. Children should be made independent from the start or from the age they can manage. Don’t do things for the child which h can do himself regularly as this will help them grow. Your job is to support them.

9. Draw boundaries and limits for children, some pushing will be expected from them. It is essential for children to live within limits and this also makes them feel cared for and secure.

10. Be lighthearted when you deal with children as this will assist you see things in a perspective. This may seem implausible sometimes but remember they will grow up soon and be out of bothering you all the time.

The 11th or perhaps the most vital commandment is that you must play a good role model for the children. This will display to children as to how they should behave, communicate as well as live their lives. Your actions are very important as children learn from you.

You will have wonderful time parenting if you follow these commandments and for more information you can check put Michael’s Parent  Boot Camps , Parent Coaching programs and workshops.
