What our children will always remember
If we want our children to have bright memories of childhood in the future, then we do not have to do much.
Read them. Yes, it’s beautiful in itself, but in reading a child there is also his own magic. crBooksatee the world, with each readert becoming parof it. Therefore, it does not matter how old it is for a child to read it, read it with him, just read it …
Listen to them. In a modern, crazy world, it’s so easy to say, “Wait a second, I have not!” But the reality is that nothing changes in a second or even a minute, and the child stays with no desirable attention. And when we seem to be prepared to listen, then the child has either either moved to tell or even forgot what he wanted to say. Kids just want to share their parents with some of their own moments. Yes, for adults it all seems unimportant and unnecessary, but for kids this is a priority! Therefore, before telling the child to wait for a second, one needs to think that the phone, computer, social networks and television will not be offended, they will not get mental injuries and will not forget anything. And children – yes.
Hug them. It does not matter whether we are small or big, but we all need hugs. Every child is individual, someone wants to be clamped, someone else’s hug will be more than enough, you just need to pay attention to their needs and not refuse children in them. Just do not need to ask, hug or not! Say “I want to hug you!” And hug. Hugs are a symbol of not only love but also of confidence, protection and just happiness.
Create family traditions. For example, arrange once a week night or evening cinema, when the whole family, armed with popcorn, watches the film together. And believe it, it will not just be a movie, when it comes to the tradition!
Share the meal. Time flies fast, cooking takes a lot of time, and the work eats everything else. Due to different charts and just the wishes of family members, it turns out to be very difficult for everyone at once at one table. As a result, children snack with flakes, hot dogs, ice cream, etc. But even this is not the worst thing! It is important that the absence of joint meals in the most negative way affects family relationships, trust and warmth. Therefore, you must choose at least one meal, be it breakfast, lunch or dinner, and always carry it all together, without options.
Tell them that they are the most beloved in the world. It is important for children to know and remember that they are favorites for their parents.
Celebrate! Again, all the children are different and their achievements are different. Someone in 5 years reads better than someone in 10 years. Someone is successful in sports, and someone just has an allergy to the ball. Someone is the best student in the classroom, and someone is engaged with tutors. But each child has something that is good for him, and whatever that is, parents should support it and celebrate all achievements!
Play together. All kids love to play, but for adults, these funs usually seem uninteresting. But you just need to find something that will bring pleasure to the whole family – board games, hiking, fishing, outdoor recreation, playing sports, cycling, reading, watching movies, any activity that will provide fun hangover and unite everyone by creating memories which children will never forget.
Remember your promises. Yes, we promise so much and so often forget to make it … But the life of children consists of moments, and these situations become very painful for them … Therefore, all those activities that are extremely important for a child – meetings, birthdays, rehearsals, contests, sports competitions, conferences, should never be forgotten by parents! And the most important thing for children will be the fact that they are remembered about it, they have not been forgotten …
Love them Love generates love. But it is not enough to just tell the child that you love him and then continue to ignore him, to neglect his desires and stories, to refrain from asking. Love needs to be shown. Because only love generates love.
