Top 13 Tips to Make Parenting Happy

What is parental happiness? How do you achieve it? This little checklist will help you multiply it in your daily parenting routine.

Know That You’re Okay

Well, you have not washed the clothes today, you have not cooked anything tasty, enjoyed bet app Uganda opportunities, not gone for a walk and generally would like to pretend to be a rag and lie with the baby, while there is such an opportunity. It’s fine. You have the right to do this.

Learn to Say No

It will save you a lot of nerves and money. You’d be surprised, but children who are exposed to a parent’s “no” from an early age treat it as something normal as they grow up. “Well, I was just asking!” – it’s like they’re telling you, even if they’re whining a little bit. It’s better to say “no” at the candy counter once than to repeat it later, when the one bite you seem to have agreed to is not enough for him.

Come up With a Special Gesture

A magic hug, a handshake combination only you know, a secret gesture – something you can use in a variety of situations: before or after a doctor’s appointment, when parting, to boost morale, and so on.

Check the Baby’s Medicine Cabinet Regularly

Make sure that the house always has antipyretics, vasoconstrictor drops, nasal lavage, powder with a mixture for rehydration, antihistamines, plasters and healing ointments. In short, be prepared for sudden illness. Because in other ways, children don’t seem to know how to get sick.

Remember That Your Child Isn’t You

Do everything you can to find out what he is like, what his character is like, what his strengths and weaknesses are. Always remember: what you like doesn’t have to excite him. The approach that seemed logical to you, it may well not suit your child. In other words, your key to it won’t work, you will have to try.

Go for the Big Goals in Small Steps

Don’t think you’ll introduce complementary foods like a ninja in four weeks. That’s far from a fact. Be happy that mashed broccoli is just on your pants today and not in your hair like the day before. Don’t expect that a baby who is used to co-sleeping will move into his bed in a day (it happens, but just in case, don’t count on it). Don’t try to get your baby to memorize all the letters of the alphabet in one day.

Give Your Child Responsibilities

Of course, he’s still little. But he can help you set the table. He can stir the pancake batter. He can clean up toys before you go to bed. Make his bed and put on his pajamas (if he is old enough). Be sure to give your baby an area of responsibility, depending on his age. Having his own duties sends him a signal that you trust him, and this in turn helps to strengthen his self-esteem.

Don’t Turn Into a Butler

Make sure your child knows where his outerwear hangs and where his shoes are, in which he goes for a walk. Ideally, he should have his own coat rack, to which he can reach and hang up or remove the jacket from the hook – depending on whether you’re leaving or coming. If he does this at three and is wildly proud of himself (because you know about positive reinforcement, right?), at seven he won’t have to be reminded that you’re not a maid and have no idea where he put his down jacket.

Admit Mistakes

Do not pretend that since you’re an adult, you can do anything. Apologize when you make a mistake and you know it (in fact, often the child knows it too). Explain and talk.

 Don’t Forget About Your Friends

Without adults who understand you, life can be boring and dull. It’s while you’re in the hell of the newborn period that you feel like you don’t want to see anyone, but once you’ve exhaled a little, you’ll realize how much you miss having someone to talk to in coherent sentences. Stay in touch with friends who have survived the fact that you have multiplied.

Make Healthy Habits

Children are born to us in part to make us better people. When you manifest a child, you have new opportunities. Start sorting garbage, drink enough fluids, walk ten kilometers a day, cook breakfast, learn a foreign language, and there and the child will catch up.


Do math from an early age. But not with a guidebook or a flashcard, but with real-life examples. Count the fruit and vegetables you pick up at the supermarket. Name the shapes of objects. Use the concepts of “more,” “less,” “biggest,” “smallest,” “average,” and so on. Fundamentals of logic, learned in the first few years of life, will make your child’s mind flexible and lively.

 Keep the Family Archive in a Safe Place

The memory of the phone or a laptop isn’t the best place for storing family photos and videos. Don’t be lazy to buy more space on a cloud service to keep all the important footage.
