Tips for Happy Children
Ask a parent what they want most for their child. Their answer is likely to be that above everything they want their child to be happy. A big part of this picture is you – the parent. If you are happy, and those around your child are happy then your child will more than likely be happy too!
Here are some other tips to a happy child.
- Laughter – expose your child to being around people who laugh. Whether it be at a playground, social setting, school or church – being around positive influences will affect how your child feels.
- Connections – get out and mix with others! Don’t stay indoors all the time . Find and make new friends.
- Know the simple things that makes them happy – whether it be going out for a last minute ice cream or smoothie. Know what brings a smile to yours and your children’s face!
