Nurturing Good Habits and Manners in Children

Add to Playlist

Children must be taught good habits and manners right from early childhood. If they learn good things at an early age they will follow such habits and manners for the rest of their life.

Imbibing good habits are a part of the knowledge progression. To make the children more active and acquire nice manners, parents must create some exciting opportunities and have fun by cooperating with children. It is better to be more cheering and kind while training with good habits. If the kids are not interested in following your instructions and behaving odd, be firm and never deject them with harmful comments.

For a preschool kid, parents can discuss with her teacher and draw out a proposal to inculcate good habits. It is always best to be updated with the child’s improvement at school. Be aware that encouraging good habits in children at early age is very important. The list of habits cultured in early phase will fix in their mind and stay with them for the rest of life.

1. Offer Reward for Children’s Actions

Reward your child if she shows any kind of good behaviour or good move. This will motivate her and enable to stick to that good behaviour throughout the life. But, avoid rewarding with few items like chocolates, permitting to watch TV for an hour or so. Appreciating with a hug, kiss and motivating words are fine to go with.

2. Make Physical Activity Necessary

In today’s modern world, there are many kids affected with lifestyle related disorders such as diabetes, obesity, and few with high blood pressure. To prevent the children from getting affected with such disorder during early years, encourage them to carry out some physical activities. Playing games like foot ball or basket ball, cycling, running games, and swimming may help them to stay fit from the beginning.

3. Teach Them to Give Respect to Elders

Respecting elders is one of the vital good behaviour that a kid must develop. Bedtime stories like children seeking blessing from elders, appreciation for helping them would be the best option to enhance the respectful behaviour in children.

4. Have Meals Together to Build-up Family Bonding

A get-to-gather or a family breakfast or dinner is a very good option to inculcate healthy eating habits in children. In today’s modern and rushing days, most of the parents are not concentrating on healthy meals for children and so the kids are becoming used to junk foods. Thus, making the children to have food with family will help them to learn the dining etiquettes and also the importance of healthy food stuffs.

5. Keep Track of the Pocket Money

Never fill the kids pocket or purse with large amount of money though you feel that their each and every need should be fulfilled. It is very important to notice the expense of a child in any family and a rough estimation is quite good to manage their pocket money. Get a piggy bank and teach them to save money to purchase their own essential requirements. Habit of saving is a wise and smart one.

6. Involve Children in Cooking

Cooking is a wonderful way to create a bonding with children. Allow them to decorate the dishes and help in salad dressings. Mothers can also help the kids to choose the perfect ingredients while cooking and teach them the cuisine tricks. By this way, children will have a good bonding with the parents and also get to know something about cooking.

7. Allow Children to Speak

Every child should have their rights to speak on what they really need and what is not liked by them. Allow the child to speak out when they face a hard situation and know the things from his or her point of view. Parents can also ask their child’s opinion for any small matters related to household things. If we understand kids and if they are allowed to take few decisions on their own, in return they will obey others and value the parent’s judgments.
Every parent should know that kids start learning good habits and manners from home which continues forever. Inculcating good habits in early stage helps them to be a successful individual.
