- Let your child grow their own wings
We all look forward to seeing our kids grow into healthy, independent individuals. To do so, give space for your child to carry out things on their own as long as they know how. For example, let your children tidy up their rooms on their own, dress themselves, or clear their plates away from the table by themselves. Step by step, your children will learn to gain responsibility and develop a strong self-esteem.
- Give room for your child to fix their own problems
We know how difficult it can be not to help your child when you already have a clear solution to his/her problem. But how else would your children learn to rely on themselves and develop toughness. Instead, you can resolve by acknowledging your children’s aggravations while leaving them to find a solution and act upon it.
- Focus on the things that really matter
Kids will surprise you in so many ways, and most often, you won’t like it. Don’t argue about everything you don’t approve of. Pick your battles. For example, don’t remark about what he or she is wearing or his/her random language. Rather, give notice to the things that are more ethically related, such as no hitting, no lying, no rude talking, etc.
- Travel with your kid
The whole idea of travel is an enriching experience for both kids and adults. It helps us see the world from different angels, develop a sense of community, and there is always something new to learn. What better to explore and grow with the most important people in your life? You and yours kids will appreciate every moment of it and grow closer together.
- Be Yourself – Laugh and Have Fun!
Rather than always being an authoritative figure for your kids, show them that down to earth, fun and simple side of you. Be yourself with your kids, and they will learn the important of being true to themselves, enjoying the moment and cherishing moments with their parents. Live, laugh and have fun!
