A Happy Family is a Healthy Family.
Encourage kids to talk about their activities and share yours as an awesome parent. Give them your undivided attention to make them feel special and communicate effectively.
Be down on their eye level and show them that the conversation is important to you. Let them voice their own opinions and feelings and validate their thoughts by showing that you care to listen.
4. Enjoy Meals Together
Appreciate breakfast and dinner by being seated at a table together. If your busy schedules do not allow for this during the week, make sure that you manage to eat together on the weekend.
Remember while you are at the table to include all the great superfoods to boost your family’s performance!
Establish a no electronic device zone at the table – yes, that includes you, awesome parent!
Exchange stories about your day to share in their joys and learn about their difficulties. A great way to get everyone talking is to take turns discussing the best and worst experiences of the day. Making this routine will result in spontaneous sharing by your kids. Just imagine the improbable occurrence of a teenager comfortable in sharing their daily thoughts with you!
Never miss out on sharing a big fat bear hug every time you say hello and goodbye. This makes children feel loved and safe, no matter their age.
You might not be able to get this right with your super cool 12-year-old son in front of his friends, but definitely, push your luck at home!
6. Create a Mission
Working together will take your relationship to the next level and develop skills for better parent-child communication. Encourage your child to choose a project and schedule a fixed time to share and complete this mission.
Make sure the time slot is blocked out in your calendar!
At a younger age you might have to provide options for a project, but let them take ownership. By sharing this task you can teach them the value of teamwork and encourage completion skills by proposing an appropriate award.
Offer something that is in line with the project, for example, if your daughter and you are making a memory book together agree to buy pretty stickers, colorful pens or washi tape to decorate the book when finished.
7. Stay Calm … You are an Awesome Parent!
It is always easier said than done to remain composed! But the next time you listen, in horror, to your child shout at you, imagine the possibility that he or she is simply imitating your behavior…
When you shout and overreact when stressed, your kids will inevitably do the same.
The ability to stay calm will instinctively teach your child to handle conflict situations better at school and at home. Teach them that it’s their choice to be irritated by a stressful situation or annoying sibling, and demonstrate this with your own actions as an awesome parent.
Your example will go a long way in changing their behavior. They need to understand the benefits of remaining calm and walking away, rather than staying and fighting. This will without question improve your day to day family living at home.
Give all 7 of these super simple strategies a try. Starting today. And become an even more awesome parent.
Parenthood is undoubtedly challenging, but it is also filled with loads of fun.
Eliminate the pressure of trying to be perfect and refrain from comparing yourself to others. Embrace being awesome, establish great family traditions and enjoy your amazing children.
Remember that being an awesome parent is easier when using available resources. The Top Learning Styles guide will help you discover the steps to successfully educate your child every day.
