How to Keep Little Kids Happy

kids

We all know that raising happier children is usually easier said than done. As parents, we need to understand that every child is different. Raising them in today’s stressful and hectic world can be really exhausting but it is also our responsibility to make sure that we raise them a happy one rather than just focusing them to be a smarter one.

As parents, we constantly try to find out ways and things for how we can do that work. Here we show you more ways that you can try as parents to help raise your kids to be a happy one.

  1. Teach them to be Empathetic

A study shows that kids who learn empathy can teach them to stand up for what’s right and to stand against bullying and bad behaviors maybe at school etc. They are more helpful and kind to other kids as well. For example, if you have two children, a good idea is to gift a bassinet to the older one and make him feel responsible for taking care of the younger one. At the same time make him realize that he is special to you and is worthy of taking care of the little one. This way, he will become more caring and he will feel really happy that you trust him with the younger child. Helping the elderly with something is also a great way to learn them empathize. This will not only keep the kids happy but also help them build stronger relationships.

  1. Develop Social Skills

The difference between the kids today and 10 years ago is that they are very much play deprived and not close to nature as well. Sure we send them to various classes where indirectly we are telling them what to do or not, which actually puts stress and pressure on them. We need to understand that an unstructured play is equally important; this helps the kids to have an independent learning. Let them have fun. Let them be just kids for some time.

  1. Have Meals Together

We have all heard the saying that families that eat together live together, but do you know what magical effects it can have on our kid’s happiness? Many types of research have shown that the kids who have their meal with their families are more emotionally stable. Also, it helps in being more connected with the family.

  1. Good Listening Skills

Now this one has to be followed by the parents first. In order to teach the kids, we need to start listening to what our kids have to say to us, be it a trivial thing. It might be a problem for your child and you need to discuss what’s bothering the child so they can learn to express themselves more, and be happier.

  1. Maintain a Happy and Loving Environment

To keep our kids happy we need to ensure a happy and loving environment, and how can we do that? By being happy and joyful ourselves! We can transmit that positivity to our kids. Studies show that if the parents are depressed or sad it can greatly affect the child’s happiness as well.

The environment should be full of joy and laughter. This is going to keep your child happy as we all know laughter is contagious! Make sure to have a loving, warm and secure environment in the house.

  1. Self Discipline

Teach kids self-discipline, don’t confuse this with being strict with them instead just praise the right thing that they do. For kids who are 3 to 5 years old, everything that they do is new to them. They don’t really know about right and wrong at such a tender age, so appreciate things they do right. The creativity they have and the hard work they might be putting on learning something are a few of them.

So basically what parents must try to do is know your child understand his or her strengths and then build them up slowly. Don’t put any kind of pressure or stress on them.

Please spend time with them, allow them to express themselves without any fear and let them experience the unconditional love you have for them. The above-mentioned ways can surely help you with raising your child a happy one. Do give these a try!

Happy Couples Habits

happy couples

What makes some couples “perfect”? The way they treat each other? Do they complement each other? Or is it the fact that they change each other’s imperfections into strength? First of all, when it comes to relationships, there is no standard of “perfection”, everyone can have a happy and perfect couple in their own way, all depends on what their definition of happiness is.

Habits Happy Couples Have

In my case, in my relationship, perfection is defined by those things which we do with each other. Things we fully know but never mention, because we are completely different from each other. Being comfortable just by keeping each other’s efforts in mind.

  1. They are not affected by the outside world

Truly strong and content partners have a very healthy habit of standing with each other, even if no one is against them or try to stop them, they will remain in support. In the outside world, there are good and bad, some people are going to try to come between you and your partner. They can try to put strange misconceptions about your partner in your head. This is the place where you stand by your partner without any remorse. This is the true love – staying there for one another.

Obstacles can come in your relationship in any form and size. There might be something that doubts you about your partner’s past. It revolves around the society with disagreement in your immediate relationships. Trust your inner guidance and check if you feel so but only because you want it. Not because social pressure.

  1. Complete acceptance

Happy and strong couples accept each other without any need to completely change one another. Anyone who really loves you, will not try to change anything about you (unless it is a habit of life-threatening). They will care about the differences between you. They support you to be the person you are.

People with happy relationships realize that in fact by changing each other, they are not different from robbing. That, in turn, makes the relationship so far last. They appreciate equality, respect differences and permit each other to have their own full place.
This happens when we are really ourselves and are comfortable in our skin so that we can be satisfied with our life. A person who feels such satisfaction, it will, in fact, lead a healthy relationship.

  1. More than enough time without asking for it

Time is one of the most priceless gifts in the world, especially in the busy world of today. If you can still take enough time for your partner, you are telling them (indirectly) that they mean the world to you.

There are only a few things in this life that we can give and never get back: words that have said and given time. Happy couples know this very well when it comes to spending time with each other. They also respect each other when they take their important time alone.

  1. They listen to each other

Happy colleagues listen to one another, really listen to words and understand them. They speak patiently and speak when they know that they need it, this is the most important part. A strong sense of communication is one of the most important factors of the long-lasting relationship. Even when you do not even know what they are talking about, it will give them comfort if you pay attention to them.

  1. No-Fault Games

Powerful couples do not blame each other. Accept their mistakes whole heartedly and learn from it.

Being committed among many other things in the demand of relationship, you see what you did wrong, how you can modify it and prepare for it. When you accept your mistakes and apologize, it ease your burdens and gain respect.
Happy couples accept their falls and have a healthy communication and approach for every situation.

This is the reason why they swallow their pride and accept their mistakes instantly – for the last long period. This deep sense of responsibility always happens between two people, who share the healthy, strong bond of love and respect.

Tips For Parenting Your Teen In a Positive Way

Parenting is not an easy task for many people, but it is much harder if your kid is facing difficulties in his way to adult life. What can you do then and how to parent a teenager in a positive way? Moreover, how can you develop a friendly relationship with your teen? Today we will try to answer all these questions, thus here are my tips on how to cope with this:

parenting

  1. Be Friends

Amidst the easiest teens tips on getting along with your children are staying friends with your offsprings. Children do really need to realize that their parents understand and appreciate them and treat them as solid individuals. Having a friendly relationship with your baby is a starting point for any family, thus your duty is to teach your children how to trust you from his early age and maintain this sense during the entire life.

  1. Take Part in Your Kid’s Life

Today many parents are too busy with their careers, duties, and material things of adult life, completely forgotten about their children. Most of them realize a problem too late, that is why it is essential to prevent it at an early stage. How to do this? You can start with making regular things together; such as spending few evenings a week together, getting university coursework help done together or regular eating meal, or spending at least one of the weekends doing what you both like. There are numerous ways of how to become a part of your kid’s life, thus do not blink these opportunities until it is too late.

  1. Respect your child

Children tend to think of themselves as independent and mature while they are growing up, thus try not to harm them by denying this. I am speaking of refusing the fact that they need more freedom as they become older, but you should always be aware of where your teen is going, who are his friends and their parents, this will help you to trust your kid even more and be secure he is safe and sound. Another bad thing you should avoid is arguing with an exalted voice, this will only lead to nervous breakdowns for both of you, thus think positive and do not tie yourself up on knots.

  1. Teach Your Teen and Share Your Own Experiencechildren

We learn something new every day even when we are adults, thus for children it is an integral part of their lives. Some parents say that their kids should live their own lives and make their own mistakes and only this way they can become solid individuals in future, but do you agree with this statement? Of course, we cannot impose our own sense of life to our kids, but we can advise them by telling how to avoid small mistakes or pitfalls our life is full of. Frankly speaking, positive thoughts and good vibes are what your relationship should consist of.

  1. Keep in Touch with Your Children, but Do Not Annoy

People, especially teenagers, get angry easily if they are under total control 24/7. If you think that regular check-ins are your daily duty, then you are completely wrong. Of course, you must control your teen, but it should be in a friendly manner, harsh and strict parenting will make your child only pull you away. If you develop a good relationship, children will share with you everything they feel or think, thus the golden rule for every parent is to find out the balance between over control and positive mentoring.

There are no exact behavioral patterns or positive thinking you should follow in order to become successful parents, thus you must do everything at your own risk. Of course, you can buy a thousand books on how to parent your teen in a positive way, but all children are different, thus they need special approaches. Where to find a key? You must realize that you have to listen to your kid and treat him as an individual with his own fears, believes, opinion and behavioral patterns. Only by keeping in mind all these factors, you can remain friends with your teen during your entire life.

How to Find Strength to Apologize?

It happened – you did something wrong, and you understand you need to bring apology, but you have no idea how to do it. We get how difficult it always is. You have to find the inner strength and bring down your pride – you just have to say it. If you wish to find out how to apologize properly and stay friends with the person offended by you, then keep on reading!

Express Remorse

Saying sorry is obligatory. You can talk for hours, but if you do not say the sacred word, it would be in vain. After you say: “I apologize," you need to express remorse, namely explain what you have done wrong and how you feel about that now. Your words have to be sincere and authentic, otherwise, your speech would be pointless. If the person feels you are speaking to him/her only because you have to, but you do not feel like doing it, s/he would never forgive you. You have to undergo the situation and speak with all your heart. The good example is: “I am sorry I embarrassed you yesterday. I feel ashamed I behaved that low."

Admit Responsibility

You have to show you understand the responsibility you had taken when you said those words or did those actions. You need to emphasize the offended person and explain that you understand how you made him/her feel. To say it sincerely, simply put yourself in that person’s shoes and try to live the situation again – how would it make you feel? If you really feel bad, share your feelings with the offended person – s/he would appreciate it. The good example would be: “I am really sorry that I embarrassed you yesterday in front of the whole office. I know how it feels to be exposed to the crowd in such a manner, and I feel really bad about what I did."

Make Amends

Now that you made it clear how sorry you are, it is time for you to offer something to reclaim a fault. You have to offer something you can do for him/her, but it has to be really done in future, that is why think twice before promising anything. Empty promises can bring even more harm, that is why you have to be really careful when saying it. The good example would be: “I realize that I was wrong when I said that you are no good in creating the text for the website. Tomorrow, I am going to admit my guilt publicly and say that you will handle the task amazingly. Will it work for you?"

Promise that It Will Never Repeat Again

You have to explain to the offended person that it will never repeat again. The person needs to be confident that your words are not empty, and once s/he forgives you, s/he will not have to go through this again. The important thing here is to sound convincing – you need to persuade the person in the seriousness of your motives to get over this conflict and live in peace with him/her. The good example here would be: “From now on, I will think twice before saying something. I will manage my stress and will never snap at you again. I feel really sorry this situation took place."

Stick to Your Word

The most difficult part is not to lose the rebuilt trust. You have to stick to what you said and really control what you are doing and think about other people’s feelings. Because if the situation takes place again, no one will ever accept your apology and you will win fame of a mean person who cannot control your emotions. You might not lose respect, but you will lose the positive attitude from the environment you are in.

The last advice for those who cannot say the words of apology is to write the apology letter. Yes, it is hundred times worse than the live communication, but it is at least something. To write is easier than to say, that is why write down everything you feel and give it to the offended person.

Positive Impact on Others

impact

Impact People and their lives.

Seeing someone you have helped in the past being upbeat and doing well is always a positive thing. Knowing that you could be the one to touch their lives and be that ray of light that they needed is a special feeling.

Then one day you run into them again, on a break or just in the hall at work. You see them and you start smiling and so do they. In this instance, I smiled and he smiled and said…

“You must be my angel"

Of course, I had no idea what he meant or how to respond, but he proceeds to tell me that he is suicidal again. I had a feeling that something was wrong when I saw him but just asked how he was doing.

This is a very heart breaking issue for anyone to experience, whether you are the one that is suicidal or the one they come to for help. Was glad I was at the right place at the right time for him, but still it was a sad moment.

Put on my smile and patted his shoulder to let him know that everything was going to be alright and walked with him to the clinic. Helped him check in and stayed with him to make sure he was comfortable while waiting. I told him I would stay but he smiles and assures me he will be fine.

All of this to say, you never know how much you impact someone

You never know when that one special person will be a part of your life. Just stop for a moment and think about how you react or will react in certain situations. There will always be someone who needs that extra smile, that little extra bit of encouragement in life.

Often people ignore situations or one another. Ignoring them by looking down and not smiling or listening to them. You might be able to tell there is a problem going on but do not want to get involved.

Chose to care

For example, I could have just spoken to this man, smiled and walked on. I CHOSE to take the extra step and listen. That because I picked up on the fact that something might be wrong.

When you see a co-worker or even a stranger looking sad or know they are having a bad day and you smile at them or just speak to them, they feel you caring.

Having an impact on someone means that you took the extra time to care. No matter how small you think it is, I can promise you that it is noticed.

Take the time to get involved!

Just that one smile or conversation could be a life changing moment for them, even though it seems simple to you.

For example, the next time you see a homeless person in McDonalds or a gas station, someone you see each day on your way to work, just smile at them or tell them good morning.

It is really the simple things in life that stick with someone. It really does not take much to be nice or have an impact, sometimes we just need to be reminded. I truly hope that these words make at least one person stop to think.
