👧🏻5 Parenting Tips👦🏻
Less work, More Play!
Play is more important to a child then academics. Studies have shown that Playing helps your child become better problem solvers, get along more easily with others and think more creatively.
You have a VIBE
Your child can catch your vibe. If you are always busy and stress-out, it rubs off unto them. Relax. Give yourself some downtime and show your child the value in occasionally putting yourself first and having fun.
Your Child Is Instinctively Mindful
Your Child is probably an expert at appreciating the moment they are in. A 5-year old is not worrying about tomorrow's schedule or regretting a decision she made yesterday. She is fully delighted and completely engaged with the play-dough in front of her.
Do Activities That YOU Love
Play does not have to be boring. You can teach your child activities early that you enjoy early! Teach them gardening, your favourite sports, your favourite hobbies… baking etc, If you are playing together BOTH of you might as well enjoy it.
Add Joy To The Mundane
No activity is boring. You can always add elements to make it enjoyable. Everything can be a game. Putting away toys? Make it a competition. Kids fighting too much, play the silence game. Folding clothes, see who can do it better! The sky is the limits here! Be creative!
