6. Be taken seriously

Children are small people. But they are human. Just like your best friend, your work colleague and so on. Treat them with at least as much respect. And take it seriously. Those who are not taken seriously as a child internalize this feeling and soon believe themselves that they are not worth taking seriously. On the other hand, children who are taken seriously develop into self-confident and, last but not least, happier adults.

7. Unconditional love

Is your child rolling on the floor in the supermarket? Does the kitchen wall decorate with a portion of spaghetti? Does the sibling terrorize? It wouldn’t be normal if you didn’t want to peck your child on the wall in such situations. And yet: give him endless love. Even if the little chick sometimes makes it anything but easy for you. But love is all about a happy childhood and a fulfilled adult life.

Some parents are so intent on making their child happy that they forget about the basic things of happiness. Because it is neither the 15th creative course for young talents nor the hip children’s birthday party that really makes the little ones happy. We’ll reveal seven simple factors for a happy child’s life.

1. Playing without rules

Life is full of rules. Later even more than before. It is therefore important to create a space in which the children can move freely from all the rules. And according to “huffingtonpost.de” that is the room of play. Don’t tell your child what to do and what not to do here. Make them offers, but ultimately let them choose what they want to do. Make sure there is a bit of completely free playtime every day. Or: do one with your child once

2. Feelings can show as they come

We adults know: If we are angry with our boss, it is not expedient to hit him, verbally abuse him or even spit on him.website that types essay for you It’s different with children. Often times they cannot channel their emotions. And that’s OK too. Because it is better to give mom or dad a blow than they devour anger, sadness and the like. The task of the parents is then to help the little ones understand and cope with their feelings. (Reading tip:

3. Eat on time

Postponing lunch for an hour or two may sound like a venial parental sin. Anyone who has ever been really hungry, someone who downright despairs, knows that you shouldn’t joke with the child’s meal times. After all, the little ones can only help themselves out of trouble after a certain age.

4. Get enough sleep

The same goes for bedtime, by the way. Sleepy children can mutate into veritable mini monsters. And for good reason: you are uncomfortable. It is important that they have fixed go-to-bed times. The process of going to bed should be accompanied by rituals. Brushing your teeth is one of them. Reading and audition can be additional. Exciting films or an extra dose of exercise have no business in the evening. They can stand in the way of falling asleep as well as a good, peaceful sleep. And one more thing: make sure you put your child to bed before they are completely exhausted. This is how you prevent an escalation caused by tiredness.

5. Be able to make decisions

Those who give their child the opportunity to make one or the other decision themselves will raise them to be confident, self-confident. In addition, when the child makes a decision, they have to feel within themselves what they actually want. This in turn helps him with self-awareness. So give the little one enough opportunities to try their hand at making decisions. For example with the choice of clothes, the bedtime story, friends and later also hobbies. To name just a few.

You dare, “said a friend, also mother, when I told her about the

Experiment by a British blogger

said that she allowed her child to do anything, really anything, in one day. The stupid thing about saying no is that nobody has fun with it. My conclusion: just saying yes all day could be fun. The experiment is much safer for mother and child than I feared and it gave me four insights.

First, you can’t play without rules. No longer trips and no expenses over 25 euros. My eight-year-old daughter was hooked and immediately began to negotiate: “You have to forbid me to watch TV, otherwise I’ll miss my yes-day,” she decreed, “and nothing sweet.” I reminded her: “I can’t forbid you to anything that day.” She crossed her arms and said firmly, “Okay, but nothing dangerous. What if I want to climb a skyscraper?”

Second, the best things in life are free. Lilli didn’t want to go up that high, but she did want to experience adventure: playing hide and seek in the rapeseed field, jumping on the trampoline, cycling with the dog. And things that made her heart happy: Instead of buying a cuddly toy, fall asleep hugging Mommy. Instead of going to the expensive climbing park to the swing rope on the water.

Third: One yes can save many no. Only once did she make my heart stop when she really wanted to jump into the Danube – with a water temperature of 13 degrees! But when Lilli stuck her toes in the cold water, she let it be. Conclusion: own experiences are the most effective and save mothers a lot of grumbling.

Fourth, saying yes means freedom. At some point Lilli and I became allies. We laughed like we hadn’t for a long time and played more “mother-child” than to be. All of the no’s that I have to pretend in everyday life were gone. And with it arguments and explanations as to why this is only possible now. With a yes day you not only grant children a certain freedom, but also yourself.

Would i do it again In any case. Ultimately, the experiment is sustainable at best. Women in particular rarely indulge in something. They orient their lives according to what they forbid – I am not allowed to eat this, not to wear it. Maybe Lilli will remember the experiment later and think: Today I will treat myself to a yes day. Because I deserve it.
