There is beauty in everything, even parenting. However, the challenge here is that there is no end to the duty. Nonetheless, it does not mean that there are no milestones.
When you set out to enforce a behaviour in your child, see to it that he or she masters it. There is no point in starting to teach her how to use cutlery, for example, and you drop the subject just because they are not holding the spoon how you would want them to do it.
The word is tenacity. Keep at it, with gentility and determination, you will achieve your end goal.
