How to Show Your Kids that They are Special

Showing children that they are special through various gestures can create a positive impact on their growth and development. Here are some ways to make your children feel that they are special.

Kids crave love and affection the most and always appreciate it if their parents go that extra mile to show them that they are special and wonderful. For most kids the feeling of being specially treated by their parents generates immense amount of joy. There are many ways in which you can make your kids feel special and wonderful and these small tips will surely help you.

Create a Journal

Keep a journal for your kid which keeps track of the small joyful milestones of your child. Keep pictures of the first time he or she started to walk, first birthday party, school recital and any other such happy moments. Pin the little notes and clumsy drawings your kid might have drawn for you. These small gestures done over a period of time will create a journal of memories. When you show this cute journal to your child you will be instantly rewarded with pure joy on your kid’s face.

Take a Kid’s Day Out

Dedicate at least two days in your month purely to your kids. You can watch movies, go to a beach festival or go to your favourite restaurant. Give your kids the right to choose how they want to spend this day with you. For children being able to plan something and do something on their own gives immense pleasure. This fiercely competitive world may cause you to have impossible schedules. Taking two days off will let you reconnect with your children and create a strong bond with them. These two days out in a month plan will make your kid very happy.

Give them Nicknames

Create small sweet nicknames for your child which only family members know about. Sometimes when you go out you can call your kid by his or her nickname creating a special secret feeling that only you both can enjoy. Most kids love code words, sign language and secret nicknames so they should be genuinely thrilled by the idea. However, make sure that the nick names and code names should be gender and age appropriate. The best solution would obviously entail letting your kid choose his or her nicknames.

Do Not Shy Away from Hugs

Scientists have provided information from experimental trails that reveal that a hug that lasts for more than 15 seconds automatically generates positive hormones in the body these hormones generate feelings of happiness and contentment. So hugging and holding your kid close is one way of making them feel really special and happy. Hugging your child will create a feel good factor which both of you can enjoy. Do not make the mistake of thinking that hugs and hand holding are only for very young kids. Often, older children too benefit from these moments of warm affection from parents as it makes them feel special.

Establish a Memorable Routine

A routine which makes your kid feel special and happy need not be elaborate and time consuming. Sometimes it can be as simple as a good night kiss or starting off your kid’s day with his or her favourite song. Your days can be made memorable by establishing a routine which is never broken; not even on those days when you are angry or upset with your kid. This feeling of constancy and steady love is one of the most coveted things in childhood. You could make your child feel special every day by embracing this routine.

Now that you know of these sweet and simple things you could do for your kids then do not shy away from trying them out from today. Remember that the happiness that these acts give your kid will be their biggest reward.
