8 Valuable Tips For Raising Happy And Healthy Kids


Raising a kid is probably the world’s most difficult and loneliest job, but it doesn’t have to be that way. If you always remember that forming a great relationship with them is what matters the most then you can solve further problems a lot easier! And here are 8 parenting tips that explain how.

1. It’s important for your child to have some free time.


Don’t make your children work and socialize more than they should or need to — youth clubs, sports, languages and what not. It’s critical for every parent to realize when they might be going too far with this. Kids need some time out as much as adults.

2. Always take your children’s side.


When talking to your kids’ teachers and trying to solve any problems connected with school, parents should always take their children’s side. Don’t be afraid of them getting bad grades — instead, be afraid that your children will start to hate school and studying in general. This should be the major issue you should try to avoid at all costs.

3. Don’t focus too much on your child’s academic progress and grades.


For example, at parents’ meetings, such questions as ’what grade did they get?’ ’have they been behaving themselves?’ come up far more frequently than things like ’What’s my child’s mood like in class?’ ’Does it seem like he/she is anxious?’ Parents should take care of their children rather than be their bosses who are obsessed with their performance. A child’s feelings, not his or her grades, are the priority.

4. Remember that if your children is struggling to do their homework, there is always a reason for it.


And it has nothing to do with laziness. The idea of ’laziness’ does not even exist in the study of psychology. The real reasons are a lack of motivation and willpower — and it’s your job to make sense of where that’s coming from.

5. Among the more serious reasons why your child struggles to do their homework might be things like increased intracranial pressure, hypertension, psychological problems, or ADHD!


And despite spending all night beavering away at those math questions, you’d do much better to find out the reason and try to resolve it, rather than doing it for them because you think they’re just lazy.

6. Remember this above all: family relationships should always come first. Grades come lower down the list of priorities.


7. Don’t forget that when they reach their teenage years, your child’s psyche is extremely fragile.


When all the grades have been given out, and all those exam-induced tears are banished from your memory, only one thing will matter — your trust, understanding, and friendship with your children. Do you still have it?

8. Put your relationship with your child before your ambitions.


It’s easy enough to get an A-grade out of your daughter, but lose them in the process, to get your son into the best university but ruin the relationship you’ve had with them since they were little. Don’t do it. You can and you must be a better parent. Sure, you can have ambitions for them, but above all, you need to be loving.
