Children are the world’s most valuable resource and our best hope for the future. Today is World Children's Day, a time for generations to come together to reimagine a better world for every child.
World Children's Day was first established in 1954 as Universal Children's Day and is celebrated on 20 November each year to promote international togetherness, awareness among children worldwide, and improving children's welfare. A time to celebrate and a time to demand action for child rights.
Every parent wants to raise their children in a way that prepares them to live fulfilled, happy, productive lives. I'm trying to be the best father in the world.
in this world, all parents want the same things for our kids. They want a child's happiness, they want to see them grow up to love and be loved, to follow their dreams, to find success. But just how much control do we have over our children's happiness? , what works when it comes to raising happy kids?
If you want to bolster your child's self-esteem, focus less on compliments, and more on providing her with ample opportunities to learn new skills. Mastery, not praise, is the real self-esteem builder.
The idea is to teach your kids to do things for themselves as they get older and more capable. Teaching them to do something themselves instead of just doing it yourself takes time and can be a little frustrating at first, but it will pay off for years to come.
While it can be difficult to watch our kids struggle, they'll never know the thrill of mastery unless we allow them to risk failure. Few skills are perfected on a first try. It's through practice that children achieve mastery. And through repeated experiences of mastery, they develop the can-do attitude that lets them approach future challenges with the zest and optimism that are central to a happy life.
Sometimes Parents schedule things back-to-back-to-back so that every minute of every day is planned out. That leads to stress and problems. Instead, schedule as little as possible each day, and leave space between events, appointments, or activities, so that your day moves along at a more leisurely pace.
Love children and be kind to them and fulfill them whenever you promise them because they don't know anyone other than you as their provider.
