Since having children, and the observation of how they are constantly learning , that once they can speak, sometimes that’s all they want to do they want to know everything, they speak their minds, they ask questions as that’s how they learn, it’s how we all learn. Sometimes we tend to forget however, their minds are still developing even when they can speak and whether you like it or not there are times you just gotta sit back, have a bit of patience and go with it and have a laugh.
I Got Nothing Moments
Sometimes the questions they ask, Continue reading
I was watching my kids and their friends playing in the park the other day and thinking there are days I would love to just be that kid again. Kids can be very positive to be around as adult life can sometimes get in the way of our thinking. We were once that kid before who was just happy and content. What got in the way of all that? Here’s what I’m learned from kids to remind ourselves again.
No Grey Areas
Kids don’t over analyse things and see another grey area for excuses. Like for instance there was a time when I was doing my first library reading for children, I had told my son I was a little nervous and not sure if I can go through with it. He gave me a puzzled look and said , “Why would you be nervous about that?” I thought about it for a moment and honestly couldn’t give him an answer. Why was I nervous? What’s the worst thing that could happen? Nothing at all. We were once that kid who would climb up the highest tree and not think of the actual danger that could happen, so why are we nervous about things now? Sometimes as adults we tend to talk ourselves out of things as we build it up in our heads of things that can go wrong and tend not to think of what can go right. A child’s view is ‘don’t overthink at all and just get on with’ it which I did.
Kids are straight talkers and you know where you stand with them, which I love as I don’t have time to be led around of people feeding you a lot of crap when you know they’re lying. Also If you ask a child’s an opinion Continue reading
As parents, we all hope that our children will become successful adults. But most importantly we want to know that we are raising good them to be good people. We all hope that our children will grow up to have the courage to stand up for others who can’t, who always choose to do good and offer help to others. But these types of values are such that need to be taught when they are young. When children are taught at an early age good values, they learn to lead better lives and have a better moral compass. Here are some ways that you can teach your young ones good values:
- Be a good example.
We are our children’s first teachers. We are who they model their behaviors after first. When your child sees how you interact with people, your own generosity and your own personal values -they will mimic those. In other words, you must practice what you preach. When they find themselves in a situation where they are not sure what path to follow, they will think about what path you would choose. Help make sure they choose the right one.
- Hold them accountable.
This is very important. When your child Continue reading
