How to raise a happy kid: Tip #1!

by - November 03, 2014

Being a parent or parents is never an easy task. It's the hardest job in the world, but there are a lot of reasons to be thankful for and be happy about. :) I'm blessed to have two amazing boys in my life and I'd like to share with you my five tips in raising happy kids every first monday of the month!:)

To start it off this November, my tip #1- 
Support them in their smallest to biggest endeavours

When I found out that I was going to be a mother, I promised to myself that I was always going to be there for my children. I promised that I’d  be their number one fan, cheerleader and shoulder to cry on no matter what.

Fast forward to 6 years, that promise has remained true and I believe that it’s one of the reasons why my kids are continually growing up happy. :)

A good example of fulfilling my promise to them would be by always being present at my son Athan’s school activities. I take pleasure in being able to watch all of his school stuff. They’re only young for a short time and these are the times when they remember the simple joy of seeing their parents in the same crowd of eager folks filming their kids. 

As for my youngest son Asher,  since he’s still only a year old, I support him by cheering  on his little achievements; being able to eat on his own, saying a new word or completing a puzzle. I make sure he feels like it means the world to me. :)

I believe the little things contribute a lot to a child’s bigger side of happiness, because they know they are loved unconditionally.  

Being a parent doesn’t only stop at you giving them all their basic needs. You also have to give them your time, in order for them to feel that their achievements, whether big or small are appreciated by the people who matter to them the most a.k.a. their parents.
