Tips in Raising your Kids Happy and Healthy

We all wanted to be the best parents of the world. Seeing your kids growing happy and healthy is one of the treasures in life that no one can replace. Here are some tips in raising your kids properly, as it was proven by  scientific research and studies.


Do not mind their height

It doesn’t matter if your kid is a couple of inches taller than you or they have mature faces, they are still kids and their brain is still working and developing. It doesn’t mean that they have grown up to be such handsome and pretty young adults that you’ll not bother to lecture them anymore because they know what they are doing. As much as possible, keep in touch with them despite of all the physical changes they have gone through.


Always support your shy kid

Not all your children are more than happy to interact with others and talk to other kids. There are some who have not overcome shyness and would rather stay alone than go out and play with the other. According to a research, shy kids are most likely to develop anxiety disorders—one thing that you must prevent them from having. As much as possible, try to encourage them to get out of their comfort zone and introduce them to the world, but do not try to change their behaviour.

Try to live with their perception

As parents, you could think nothing but bills, problems, the future of your kids and so on but for a 3-year old kid, nothing matters as long as they can play around and eat when they are hungry. As much as possible, try living with their perception as of the moment, forget your problems for a while and go out to play with your son. In that way, they would feel your presence as a supporting parent who understood that children are just that—kids.


Encourage them to voice out their emotions

You may notice that older kids tend to express their feelings more than younger ones. It’s because your 3 year old kid would often lack the vocabulary in order to express their emotions, but they do understand it somehow. As much as possible, encourage them to express how they feel on their own way.


Take it slow

imagesDon’t rush it—everything takes time. Especially young kids who move in a slower pace because they tend to enjoy and try to understand everything that you are trying to say. Try to set a schedule for certain things such as their usual bed time routine or a trip to the grocery store the next morning.


Minimize distractions

If you see distractions around, eliminate it. If you are going to spend some time with your kids, make sure that you are not constantly checking your phone for emails or scrolling in your Facebook newsfeed otherwise your son or daughter may feel neglected. Set a time just for them and focus on it.

Help Them with Self Identity

For your child, the parents are considered as their world. In everything they do they will ask your approval before they are planning to do something. That is why parents should know and help their kids explore different activities to help discover what they are passionate about. Ask them what they want to do so they could experience things.

Celebrate Curiosity

Kids are always curious to everything; they could ask everything and anything based from what they see and heard. And it is important as parents to be responsible in answering them, or perhaps provide them a free environment where they can confidently ask questions. Help them understand things around and the consequences to face so it will be easier for them to see the real world.

Be A Model

As parents one of your responsibilities is to be role model to your kids. If you want to have a happy and well-discipline child then you need to show to the kids how you handle things around. Some parents find it cute if kids answer back at them in a silly way or trying to be grown-up even if they are not yet. A role model shows positive things to people such as having a healthy lifestyle.

Open Their Mindset

Parents love to praise their kids, especially if they have done something good in their school, but in order to make them brighter in the future do not label their achievements as the best of all. It only tells them that they have done the best of all resulting them to limit themselves from what they do. It is important they need to keep on learning and explore beyond their limitations do grow up with confidence and innovations.

Engage in sports

Also the pain of losing and the reward of winning can help them build strength in all the problems they will face in the future.

Remove Social Stress

Expand the horizon of your kids and help them explore new things around them. Let them discover freedom and self-worth through taking them to theme parks, traveling to Disneyland and other activity areas that can mingle with others. With that your kids will always have a positive outlook towards life and open up their mind that there’s more in life to explore.
