Strategies to be an awesome parent. Listen and learn from your children.

3. Listen and learn

It is important for us as parents to encourage kids to talk

  • about their activities
  • feelings
  • hopes
  • and fears

and equally important

  • sharing ours with them

Giving them our undivided attention, make them feel special and help us communicate effectively.

4. Enjoy meals together

Mealtime is an often overlooked time you can easily convert into quality family time. Appreciate breakfast and dinner time together and be seated at a table. If your busy schedules do not allow for this during the week, make sure that you manage to at least eat together as a family on the weekend.

Top family dinner tips

  • include all the great superfoods your family needs
  • establish a no electronic device zone at the table

Yes, that includes you, awesome parent! You can rather exchange stories about your day to share in their joys and learn about their difficulties. And, a great way to get everyone talking is by taking turns to discuss the best and worst experiences of the day.

Making these family meals a routine result in spontaneous sharing by your kids. Just imagine the improbable occurrence of a teenager comfortable in sharing their daily thoughts with you! Impressive …

Research shows a  pronounced benefit of physical contact with your child as a loving touch is key to healthy brain development. You can find more ways here to

6. Create a mission

We want to work with our kids because it

Creating a mission together is initiated best by encouraging your child to choose a project. And then, most importantly, scheduling a fixed time to share and complete this mission together. Make sure the time slot is blocked out in your calendar!

Mission details

Let the kids take ownership of a project even though you might have to provide options when they are younger. Share a task and teach them:

  • the value of teamwork and
  • encourage completion skills by proposing an appropriate award

Use awards as motivation, but never bribe the kids

Offer something that is in line with the project, for example when your daughter and you are making a memory book together, agree to get some

  • pretty stickers,
  • colorful pens
    • my daughter LOVE these!
  • washi tape to decorate the book when finished.

Great mission ideas

And the result: Unbelievably Smart Kids!

7. Stay calm … You are an awesome parent!

This hack is always easier said than done. Remaining composed is sometimes a challenge for the best of us. But the next time you listen, in horror, to your child shouting, imagine this possibility that he or she is simply imitating your behavior

Scary right?

Unfortunately, kids follow by example. When we are stressed and shout and overreact, our kids will inevitably do the same … Keep that in mind the next time you are about to yell at them.

The best reason for staying calm

The ability to stay calm instinctively teaches our kids, to handle conflict situations better both at school and at home. And, that is exactly what we want to teach them.
