Jamon Glover is the community leader of the Convene Parenting community.
Convene Parenting is a web-based community where parents of all ages can interact with and learn from one another. This community will provide a platform to share learning experiences and navigate through the many stages of parenting. Convene Parenting is one of the communities at the heart of Convene Communities as this was one of the first communities created when Convene Communities launched.
Jamon is a professional videographer and is also an avid parenting coach.
He got into photography and videography at a young age as the love for the camera developed through his father. However, his parenting journey sparked out when his child said that he wanted the neighbor to be his father instead of him. Dumbfounded, heart-broken, angry, and confused, Jamon tried to understand why his four-year-old son would say such a thing. In Jamon’s eyes, he was doing everything he could to be a good father, disciplinarian, and provider. But there was one thing that was missing: being a present nurturer.
What’s essential when it comes to parenting:
Build The Relationship
It’s not the parent’s job to be ‘god’ in the child’s life. It’s crucial to spend quality time and bond with your children.
Learn to be a man (or woman)
Learn to the responsibility of carrying for someone else. Being a parent requires maturity and the ability to put other’s needs before your own.
Understand that becoming a parent requires sacrifice
There may be life decisions that you have to make because it’s for your family and children’s greater good.
Preparation is key
Parenting is not easy, and there is no manual for it. Hopefully, parents find that within the Convene Parenting Community, they have the support, tools, knowledge, and resources needed to parent effectively.
Parents have to work with one another
It does the family no good if the mother and father neglect their relationship. Parents should remember to work together to raise children in a happy and healthy environment. Remember that your child is observing you first.
Remember that each child communicates differently
Each of your children has different and unquie personality and character traits that affect how they communicate and receive communication. It is essential to learn each of your children’s unique communication styles and what they individually need.
You may not be able to attend every game, be present at every PTA meeting, or spend hours with them when you arrive from work; however, it’s important to pour into your children and make the quality moments you do have memorable.
