Playful Parenting: Giving Your Child a Carefree Atmosphere in the Home

Aug 17, 2007
Do you and your child enjoy each other's company? If you are one of those parents who get along well with their children, then you are on the right track. According to experts, playful parenting is one of the best ways to keep a good open relationship with your children. When both you and your children are able to relax and have fun together, there are lesser chances of friction and stress in the home.

Studies show that playful parenting gives a relaxed and carefree atmosphere in the home. Such an atmosphere is very important in shaping the character of the child. Where the child is carefree, he or she becomes more confident and even-tempered. Children coming from happy homes are usually more sociable and can relate to their peers easily.

Playful parenting takes out the stress in the home. Since the child is less exposed to stress, he or she is less likely to develop illnesses that are commonly associated with stress. On the other hand, because the parents also enjoy the company of their children, the parents will also benefit a lot if they employ playful parenting to raise their children.

Introducing Playful Parenting in the Home

When introducing playful parenting in the home, you should not forget to lay down the rules first. Just because you want to establish a carefree atmosphere in the home doesn't mean that you and your kids will not have any rules to live by. Since playful parenting relies so much on the harmony and balance in the home, rules are very important. However, when setting the rules, you should not let your children feel that you are setting some hard and fast rules but rather something that all of you should be do to keep the harmony in the home.

Setting the rules with your children should be a participatory process. If your kids are still very young, establish your rules through examples. Verbal instructions are usually lost on very young kids so your better teach them through actions. Very young kids love to imitate the things that they see or hear so it would not be much trouble to show them through actions as to how things should be in the home. When your kids grow older, they will easy adapt to the rules in the house. As long as kids do not feel that they are forced to so some things around the house, they usually cooperate.
