Okay, I know it’s critical for us to keep up with what our kids are doing in school. There’s nothing more important to me than checking on their behavior and what they are doing….good and bad….how they are treating other children. But it can be so dreadful!
I get a little stressed out before hand, I’m always worried that I’m going to get a horrible review of what my children are doing. Not to mention, with three little ones in school, it takes three times as long for me to get through the night!
In this day and age where technology rules industry, it is common for households to have plenty of electronic devices to keep them busy. While many machines help to improve our way of life, there are several contraptions that are used for entertainment purposes.
Washing machines and dishwashers help to wash our clothes and eating utensils in an efficient manner. Microwaves and stoves help us to prepare, cook, and heat foods.
As a mother, I always want my son to grow as a responsible and confident person. I want him to be himself and excel on the things that he really enjoys doing. In order to help him become a good person, I praise him whenever he does good things. I believe that giving our children some positive praises on the things that he does well can boost his confidence.
Here are some of the instances when I praise my son:
- I always give him give comment every time he does something good or he shows a positive behaviour.
When the global recession hit us, I never let my son feel its effect, although I told him that we should be wiser with our spending. There was financial stress but I did not tell him how his dad and I go through everything because I don’t want to scare him or let him feel the pressure. Besides, he is just a kid and so there is no point of telling him all these financial troubles happening worldwide.
Every child loves to receive gifts but many people make the mistake in thinking that they should be forever buying them things. It really is a big mistake to spoil children and without going all deep and meaningful it really can cause a lot of problems in later life. A child who is spoilt will go through life thinking that they can have what they want whenever they want.
Children are no different from adults in that they would much rather prefer routine in their lives. They don’t like uncertainty and if you can establish a happy routine you will find that you have a happy child.
As an example, most children don’t like going to bed but if you can establish a set bed time you will find that your children will actually start to enjoy knowing that they must go to bed at a certain time and the result of this will be that they will wake up feeling refreshed and ready to go. The same thing applies to meal times, if children are just left to help themselves and eat their meals in front of the television then you really are heading for trouble. Make sure that meal times are away from the television and eating sat around the dining table is another routine that once established will always go on to pay dividends.
