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!

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:

  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.
