Encouraging kids to do certain things every day can help to raise them
into well balanced individuals. Let us take a look at the top 10 things your
kids must do every day.
The concept of parenting in this frenetic device
obsessed world has changed radically. However, there are a few universal
activities that can greatly benefit your children if they practice these every
day. Here are the top 10 things you should ensure that your child does.
Nothing can beat the therapeutic power of
exercise and you should definitely ensure that your kids get some precious
exercise time every day. Even if they have super busy schedules it is your duty
to inspire, motivate and ask them to engage in a physically vigorous act every day.
Exercise helps the digestive function, pumps up the blood circulation and boosts the immunity.
One of the things that will build robust health
of your kid is nutritious food. Introduce your children to healthy food from a
very young age so that they get used to eating healthy. Whatever you teach them
from childhood will stick with them and helping them reach out for oatmeal
raisin cookies over candy bars is a habit you will incorporate.
Praying Every Day
Praying is a therapeutic force that cleanses out
the mind and refreshes the spirit. When you teach your kid to pray you
automatically inspire a respectful attitude towards the almighty. A prayer every day will soothe the mind and
unleash a streak of positivity in your kid.
Helping Out at Home
When your child helps out at home regularly he
or she learns that is important to contribute towards the family. This habit
will in time build a responsible and respectful attitude. Every day your kid
should do some act (however small it might be) to help out at home.
Eating Meals Together
Ensure that your kid at least has two meals per
day with the family. Eating together strengthens the family bond and reinforces
the good concept that meal times are family times. Of course you should act as a role model teaching your kid the
importance of eating meals together.
Talking About Their Day
It is important to ensure that your kids let you
know how their day went each and every day. Confide details of your workday to
your kid and encourage them to talk about theirs. This act ensures that you are
in touch with whatever is happening in your kid’s life.
Cleaning up After Themselves
Apart from very young kids who need to be taken
care of completely, all children should be expected to clean up their own mess.
Ask your kid to keep back toys in place after playtime and to ensure that they
wipe up (or at least try to wipe up) anything they might have spilled. Not only
will kids become more responsible they will also learn to be less clumsy by
Your kids should learn to brush their teeth
every day, take a bath every day and maintain general cleanliness. All kids over the age of 5 should do these things every day without
being prompted by their parents.
Saying Thank You
You kid should definitely say “thank you” or any
other person when they receive a favour or help. Saying thank you is not
limited to specific occasions like thanksgiving, birthdays and other events
when they receive gifts. Thank you is a phrase that expresses gratefulness
towards any gracious act.
Doing their Homework
All early middle school and older children should
do their school projects or homework independently. Make sure that they are
there to guide but not to take care of their work for them.
These 10 disciplined and essential habits will motivate your kid to lead a
better quality and more responsible life in future. Do your best to ensure that these 10 things get done by your kids every day.
