We are all about making kids happy through premium fashion that boosts their confidence but beyond that, we just really want them to be genuinely happy people because happy kids go on to lead happy lives as happy adults. And we’re not talking about the momentary kind that happens when you gift them, we’re talking about sustainable happiness that radiates from them to the world.
It’s easy to think ‘oh please, kids will be kids, such happy-go-lucky perfect beings’ but the truth is kids have feelings and needs that if not properly managed, can alter the trajectory of their entire purpose. So, on today’s episode of making kids happy, lol, we’d be giving you some really helpful tips on how to ensure you’re raising happy, confident kids.
You first need to be Happy.
Now, you’re probably wondering ‘Me? what does this have to do with me?’. Oh, it has everything to do with you. We understand that with the hustle and bustle of adulthood, it gets harder to maintain good cheer but we beg you to try, for your precious little ones. You can’t give what you don’t have and if you don’t have happiness yourself, how do you give it?
You can activate your happy side by doing the things you love, hanging out with people who love and bring out the best in you, and by consciously making an effort to make happiness a habit. It works like a charm for real. As soon as you’re happy, your kids will find it easier to communicate and bond with you. This makes them feel loved and builds their esteem. And a loved child is a happy one.
‘I’m Busy Right Now’
Ouch. Okay now, this one hurts. Your super star just made airplanes out of paper and ‘I’m busy right now’ is all you could give them back? Not even a minute to say ‘wow, great job honey?’ That’s not cool, dear mummy and daddy.
To you, those words are as not harmful but what you’ve done is teach them that it’s okay to dismiss their feelings. You don’t want them to be the kids in class with brilliant ideas but are afraid to say it out for fear of dismal, do you? So, we’re counting on you for a change!
‘When I Was Your Age...’
Since we have all agree to be better than the generations before us, we shouldn’t compare our little ones to ourselves. Comparison is a thief of joy and we know you think kids’ feelings fade easily but this isn’t totally true, some things linger longer than you think.
Many times, they might fall in the wrong but that’s their job, to learn as they grow. When this happens, don’t make them feel like they never do anything right at such young age. Instead, teach them with love and nurture their confidence, that’s how they actually learn to be better.
Keep Them Stunning.
This takes their confidence to another level and even makes people want to be around them more. With kids, almost every moment is an eye opener, and we’re glad to be a part of this journey with you. Here’s to raising happy, confident kids!
