How To Teach Good Habits To Your Kids
Parenthood is another great responsibility of a couple after they decide to have a baby! Just as pregnancy involves a lot dynamic changes in the behavior patterns of both the partners, in the same way parenting calls for a proper understanding of small things which will eventually help new parents in teaching the good habits to their younger counterparts.
Here are few tips which will surely be of help when you want your kids to learn good habits and behave properly.
Set An Example-
You should be able to set an example before them. Children are borm imitators and they quickly catch up what they see in front of their eyes, be it good or bad. So it is basically your test to put forth your sober behavior whenever they are around. It is like the more natural it is for you, the more easily your kid will pick up the good things from you!
Learning is Continuous-
It is not like one day you will make your child sit and you will give all the preaching about good & bad habits. It surely doesn’t work with a toddler. You need to monitor their behavior 24*7 and wherever you feel they should not have acted like this, correct them instantly with calm mind & patience.
Learning in a Fun way-
Many kids find it easy to learn & catch few things when the same thing is done in a fun way and without the parenting authority. You should be able to play with them and while they are having their share of fun you can teach them like how to eat properly without spilling, not talking while food in mouth, not hitting anyone, keeping the room clean and like that.
Relate the good things with their favorite characters-
Children love to watch cartoons and other animation movies, so you need to understand which cartoon character is your kid’s favorite and relate those things with your child like ABC character is very obedient and a good boy, never defies his parents and is polite! And you will see that they will surely try to improvise themselves just to be as good as the cartoon character.
Make sure to repeat the preaching-
So one day you taught your kid how to keep the room clean and now the other day you didn’t say anything thinking that they will learn! well that is not true, until the time a kid does little things on their own they are not habits. So make it a daily chore to revise all they have to do, keeping their room clean, not spilling their food, no talking while eating.
Teach basic manners-
Teach few things right from the beginning will make them so used to the good habits that as they grow up you won’t have to worry about the roper manners. Begin at your home and ask them to say thank you and please whenever you tend to serve their favorite smoothie or they want to have their favorite lunch. his way when the child interacts with an extended family or circle of friends, he will naturally remember to use these manners in his day to day life.
Well, the span of good habits for kids is very vast and it takes time and effort to teach those things to kids. So you have to be patient with them in order to make them learn, however annoying it may be! Hope you find this information useful!
