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!

7 Wise Spiritual Lessons from Children

7 Wise Spiritual Lessons from Children

Children have a very particular way to see the world. As they haven’t been through much yet, they can see it in a way that we miss when we become adults. And you probably have found yourself wondering about where the person that you were has gone.

It is true that feeling nostalgic about it isn’t productive. You won’t be a child again, no matter how hard you try it, avoiding responsibilities, for example. But there is nothing stopping you from going back to that time in your mind and waking up your inner child.

And the best thing about it is that you will be happily surprised with how it can help you to be happier and successful in your life, as you will discover in this post. And to achieve it, all you have to do is to keep an open mind and start listening to all those wise spiritual lessons that you might get from a child without even asking for it.

# 1 – Live the moment

Children have no concern about the future. Their minds are always here and now. They don’t worry about what they are going to be when they grow up until an adult asks them about it. And they get heartbroken when you say that they have to wait to do something another day or time, as tomorrow has no meaning for them.

# 2 – Embrace friendship

Children love their friends. All their friends are invited to play and regarded with the same level of respect and attention. Of course, when they get a bit older, they start to favorites. But they don’t have acquaintances. They deal with friendship intensely, considering their friends as part of their family.

# 3 – Enjoy nature

If you want to see a child happy, just take them to enjoy nature. They understand how crucial the environment is for them, and you will see very sad faces looking out the window on rainy or cold days. Children are very keen on their pets, but they will also love ladybirds, ants, and butterflies. They spend as much time as possible playing outside and embracing all that nature has to offer.

# 4 – Always have fun

If they have toys, great. If they don’t, great too. Children know how to have fun in any circumstances, with or without the resources, alone or in a group. They learn by playing, and the “no pain, no gain" concept is something that they can’t even begin to understand. They enjoy what they are doing, and they are always up for a good time.

# 5 – Treasure your imagination

When we become adults, we lose our ability to dream freely. We get caught with bills, jobs, and relationships, and our imagination just fades away. Children, on the other hand, have the most imaginative mind. They will create new worlds and friends just for the fun of it. They can see the world with bright ideas, and they will always have hope.

# 6 – Speak your mind

Children will say whatever they want. They don’t have any boundaries and don’t believe that hiding what you feel is the solution for anything. They will laugh out loud if they are happy, and they will cry their lungs out if they are sad. They will never fake or pretend that they like you if they don’t. They will ask when they are in doubt, and they won’t go to bed with an unsolved situation disturbing them.

# 7 – Make art

Every child makes art. It can be drawing, coloring, painting, dancing, sculpturing, handcrafting, playing an instrument. But, at least, one form of art will be among their favorite things to do – and usually more than one.

For some innate reason, they know that making art is good for them, that it helps them to improve themselves as a person and as a learner. And they won’t care if their work is good or not, only that they can enjoy it.

The bottom line

So here are seven wise spiritual lessons that you can learn from a child. If you bring them to your adult life, you will see that you should:

  • Appreciate the things that you have now, material and spiritual ones;
  • Give to the present the same importance that you give to the future and the past;
  • Spend as much time with nature as you can;
  • Believe that you can have fun while doing serious things;
  • Let your imagination free, even if it makes you sound naive;
  • Tell people that you love them, and not lie to them when you don’t;
  • Make some form of art despite a lack of talent.

If you only followed these rules, you will make your life much happier, and your happiness will be spread around people nearby you.

So instead of thinking about all the things that you should be teaching your children, maybe it is time for you to learn from them as well. You won’t regret.
