Seven Tips to Help Our Children Achieve True Happiness

Apr 1, 2008
A happy event is the bith of a child, but what is next? Challenge of parents, now, is to make that child happy. Rythm of life has been changing. Thus, life styles are also changing.

A member of family of dad or mom is educating children. In some other cases, a stranger, a nanny, raises them.

A woman who sometimes does not even share the same values or ways of thinking as the parents of child, but who is taking care of him, and showing him a way of living.

Not having a parental figure at home, make children feel empty. We do not suggest to leave your job, instead you can follow our tips to help your children achieve true happiness.

Watch their eating habits. Lacking an authority gives our children an excellent opportunity to learn unhealthy eating habits. That may make them happy at first, but they will have negative consequences such as health problems. In addition, eating lots of junk food, fatty food, or fast food make our children get desperate, angry or sleepy easily and quickly.

As a result, the short period of time you get with them will not be positive because you will be scolding him and he will be talking back to you. Therefore, instead of enjoying that time both will be arguing.

Motivate him to exercise. Motivate your child to do any kind of sport or other physical activity. Exercising is a good way to keep our mind free of harmful emotions or thoughts. It also helps to be stress-free. Although it is hard to believe, children are also affected by a very hurried routine.

Set time tables for watching T.V. Do not allow your children watch too many T.V. programs. Most of them have no childlike designs for this reason children might have lots of questions about certain words or behavior they listened to or watched on T.V. If you are not by their side, the answers to their doubts would probably not be solved by the most appropriate person.

Devote some time to your child. Although this may be a little bit demanding, giving some time to your child might be satisfying because you will know his way of thinking, feeling, his behavior, etc.

Pay attention to his thoughts or opinions. Children usually appreaciate things that can result very common for adults and we usually ignore their feelings towards that given object. We often treat their opinions as unimportant because we think they are silly.

However, if we stop one minute to look carefully at what they are observing enthusiastically, we will realize that they are right and that what they think or feel about that special object or situation is unique.

Praise him. Listening to words that show approval or admiration for them is the secret power that make the impossible to happen. With those magic words you can change behavior, handwriting, unwilling attitude,etc.

Motivate him to play with educational toys. More and more toys are being sold. However not all of them help our children develop their imagination. Most of the toys that are in the market are battery powered. Some of them promote violence as well as crime. You may find some fun, educational, and value-priced toys like high- quality wooden puzzles, thick durable cardboard jigsaw, etc.

Deboting some attention to your child while he is still developing his way of being will prevent you to have major problems in the future.
