How to be A Positive Thinking Mum

Raising children can be a challenge physically, emotionally and mentally. *agreed*

Positve Mom

Staying positive in this capacity is frustrating but not impossible.

Believe me because I’m trying my hardest to build my personality and still learning to do it. *Insya-Allah*

Below are some ideas that can help moms stay positive that I’d learned from personal experience and by reading on the Internet since year 2002:

  • Step 1: Be POSITIVE
    Decide to be positive when getting out of bed each morning. While getting frustrated sometime through the day is inevitable, remember that negative experiences do not mean that you have failed. The key to being a positive mom is to keep trying and believing in yourself.
  • Step 2: Find POTENTIAL
    Help your children discover their potentials. Express your confidence in them and help them to reach their goals.
  • Step 3: Search for POSITIVE
    Look for the positive in your children and be specific when praising them. Give encouragement and avoid picking on their mistakes. If you are displeased with something they did, correct them and move on. Do not nag on the issue.
  • Step 4: SMILES
    Smile often. It makes you feel good about yourself, and it makes your children feel more comfortable and happy.
  • Step 5: Be PATIENT
    Be patient and kind with your children.
  • Step 6: Smooth n EASY
    Take things easy. When choosing between working on the relationship with your children versus household chores, work on the relationship first. The chores will still be there when your children are grown up and have left the home.
  • Step 7 Good MODEL
    Be a good example of being positive and optimistic. Your attitude will set the tone for your children as well.
  • Step 8: NO COMPLAIN
    Try not to grumble and complain, especially in front of the children. The more you do it, the worse it gets because it creates a negative atmosphere. Be determined to have a good attitude about things.
  • Step 9: LIVE It
    Put quotes of encouragement all around the house to remind you to be positive. Decorate your home with flowers and brightly colored pictures.
  • Step 10: Add FUN
    Do one or more fun activities with your children every day.
  • Step 11: Happy Break
    Take time for yourself. Do your hobby; reading, sewing. When you get a break and are happy, chances are you will be more positive.
  • Step 12: FORGIVE
    Learn to forgive and forget.
  • Step 13: Create SWEET HOME
    Strive to make your home a happy place. Your children will appreciate your positive attitude.

All tha best 😉 Please share your own tips too. Thank you so much!

  1. Hi! Thank you very much for this article. I’ve always tried to be a good mother but sometimes missed out by doing some things that may not be a good example to my children.
    I find Step 8 is very important : No grumble. I always did this because when I get tired I always tend to fuss about things to my husband and always in front of the kids.
    I guess that’s when Step 12 comes: Forgive and Forget.

    mamafiza: Dear Miss Aziera, thank you so much. I really appreciate your feedback 😉 Insya-Allah, we try to do this piece by piece, added day by day, alright? I will always pray for you. Amin~

  2. I like ur step 6.
    Me as a woman which is very particular bout homes. No messy allowed.

    Now, i realize and will apply step 6.

    mamafiza: Dear Miss Afni, wish ya all the best 🙂 Yes, I do agree on that; filling our house with love is more important than complaining about bijou matter. We just can’t buy their childhood time.
