We should never consider parenting as an easy task. The things that we usually take for granted are sometimes pretty important to our kids.
These tiny things actually do mean a lot to our little ones and will have a considerable influence on their lives.
I am picking this topic up because my child was little upset with me today. I went crazy and couldn’t figure out what on earth has made my angel feel hurt.
- Did I say her “Good Morning”?–Yes, of course; I said it!
- What was made in the breakfast? –Uummm; it was her favorite dish indeed.
- Is she looking gorgeous in the dress? — Yeah, it is her favorite pink color.
Then what’s the reason? What has made her feel so sad today?
While I was figuring this out, I realized that my daughter was looking at me while I was talking on the phone in the morning. She was asking for something through her eyes–may be a cup of water–which I missed because I was too engaged in talking on the phone that I forget to look after her.
I thought why not create a list of little things that may mean a lot to our kids.
Sharing a little special time with your kid doesn’t have to be a big affair or an event full of gifts; you can always take a couple of minutes out from your busy day to go out of your ordinary way and tell your child how much you support and love them.
Given below is a list of small things that can bring a smile on your kid’s face.
But, before you read this, let me tell you one fact that these little things may look ridiculous or funny, but are worth trying!
Things That Are Funny but Mean a Lot to Our Kids
1) Go for a long walk with your kid, instead of putting headphones–sing those beautiful songs yourself!
2) Let your kid teach or explain you something. Take pleasure in listening to their words.
3) Is your child an artist? Frame their artwork and place it in the living room.
4) Slip a quick note (sometimes a small gift) in the most unexpected area or into their lunch box.
5) Why not let in a pet that wants a home—and of course, a child’s love.
6) Create a secret handshake style for your family.
7) Pillow fights are great, sometimes!
8) Fix a whiteboard or notepad in their room so that you can leave sweet words for each other.
9) Make sure your kid is in a hearing zone while you are praising their abilities and talents to a relative or teacher.
10) Always be ahead of the routine so that the “Hurry up!” and “It’s so late!” can be replaced by something like picking flowers, jumping on stairs, etc. while you are on the way to school.
Try these ideas, recycle your favorites, be creative in choosing your style, or create your methods to set aside a couple of minutes every day.
