Things that matters a lot to our Kids, more than we think

February 25, 2019
things that matter to Kids

In these 4+ years of parenting, I always tried to find out the things that matter to Kids.

You buy your Kid almost everything they ask for.

You take them for rides every now and then.

You make them join art/music or sports class.

But nothing of these matter much to your Kids. You must be amazed at this but this is true.

Rather, there are so many small things that matter a lot to Kids, more than we think.

Like other Parents, I also said this “I do so much for you then why are you so ungrateful, so rude”. I was also among the ones who believe that doing everything for the Kids should automatically make them grateful or loving.

I was so wrong.

Kids don’t need rides or games or parties to make them feel loved. They need something else.

I would like to thank UK for introducing me to Momology Blog train. You can read more about his work at their Blog Fashionable Foodz.

Things that matter to Kids

It’s the little things that matter the most to Kids. These are the things that make a Kid happy.

Your Smile

Smile at their acts. No matter how foolish they are.

Smile at their efforts. No matter if they achieved something or not.

Your Time

Answer their curious questions. Don’t shut them off.

Play with them. Go out together for cycling or playing. Don’t say I have no time.

Help them with their assignments/projects. Don’t outsource or just make it for them.

Do fun together. Piggy-ride, rough-play, pillow fight or dance. Don’t ask them to grow up or stop doing silly things.

Your Love

Hug them. Cuddle them. No matter how old they are.

Embrace them. No matter what wrong they did.

Your Trust

Trust them for their actions. Don’t tell them that they can’t do that.

Trust them when they refuse. Don’t ask them to stop making an excuse.

Your Praise

Praise them every now and then even if it a small act. Like- washing hands on their own or doing a chore or their homework independently.

Praise them while talking to someone else and make sure they hear you. Shhh! Do not show that you know they are around.

Praise them for their efforts. Not for their talents.

Your Support

No matter what the world says but what you say to your Kids matter a lot to them.

Support them for their decisions. Even if it is an odd one.

Say Yes if they want to stomp in a puddle. Even without rain boots.

Your Tone/Words

Use Soft tone to reply. No matter how rude they are.

Use right words to advice. No matter how wrong they are.

Your Health

Last but not the least, your health matters a lot to your Kids. Only if you are physically and mentally healthy, you would be able to take care of them and help them reach their full potential.

Indulge in Self-care. No matter how busy you are.

    I have been in this phase of considering my child thankless for a long time. And then I realised that all he wants from me is love. It becomes so easy to manage them, if they know that you love them no matter what,

    Great post dear and I completely agree with you that raising kids is much more about providing materialistic pleasure. kids need our love, care, attention and time. and if try to include all points ( as you had mentioned) during practical life while nurturing our kids, then parenting would be more easier and peaceful. #Momology

    I think it’s very important not to rebuke a child but explain to them. This articles has great tips and how to be a partner in crime with kid but make them be an important part of human interactions.
