Ways of Raising Happy Baby
As for me, teaching my own child to be happy and appreciate it, is one of the greatest gifts to me as a parent. *Alhamdulillah*
Please do memorize that your baby and toddler won’t find happiness through movies, television or other aspects of pop culture.
Don’t you ever replace happiness with material. *please*
Koko Crunch’s Buddies
Happiness comes from within and it’s about learning to love the person that you were created to be.
Once your child learns this lesson, he’ll carry it with him for the rest of his life. *Insya-Allah*
Let play a part in it:
- Step 1: Aim for Blissfulness
Set goals for your child. These goals should be challenging and should require effort on your child’s behalf. But they should be goals that your child can achieve. Once your child successfully meets this goal, he’ll have a better self confidence and a better understanding of true happiness.
- Step 2: Be Optimistic
Point out the positive. This is a sure way to build your child’s confident and help her be happy. And even more important than the pat on the back is why you’re praising your child. That’s encouragement for her to do it again.
- Step 3: Praise Good Words
Choose praise words that set high standards, but not too high. Words like “perfect” and “super” are OK, but they can often set standards that are unobtainable. Instead phrases like “hard worker” and “smart” set expectations that are well within your child’s reach.
- Step 4: Remedy
Allow your child to correct mistakes. The true test is how to handle it. Equip your child with the right attitude, and he’ll be a better person for it. *Insya-Allah, Amin~* He’ll feel happy with the outcome when he’s corrected the situation himself.
- Step 5: Role Model
Find positive role models for your child. As parents, you should definitely be an example to your child. But she should also be able to look outside the home and find people who support her. And some kids, especially teenagers, feel more comfortable talking to someone other than a parent. If you already have a support network in place, you can feel confident your teen is getting the right information and she’s growing into the person you know she can be.
- Step 6: Stop Tittle-Tattle
Discuss behavioral difficulties about your child when he’s not around. Hearing a conversation about himself can tear down his self esteem and will lead to unhappiness.
Please do recall:
“You have your husband/wife, your family, your job, your friends, your lover, and tons of entertainment to think about and love, but your baby only have YOU.
So what are you waiting for? Start passing your love to your sweet baby, today *cheers* 😀
