Just take your child out and show him or her a good time. They will love you for sharing good times with them and helping them to build their own imaginations and sense of play. Play is a very good thing for parents and kids to have together. So, do it, when the child is old enough to interact with you. This interaction can start as old as just a few months after birth. When you spend fun times with your kids. It will be something that he or she will do with their very own kids one day. It is one lesson in love that is bonding, exciting, and close in description.

- Never Limit Creative Play to Just Video Games and TV – This is because if this is all that they do for fun and entertainment for themselves. The will literally be missing out on all that life can offer them for lots of fun and excitement. Fun and excitement is not reserved to watching TV and playing video games nonstop. There is also lots of other things to do and enjoy when you are a child. Children who are the happiest are all those who are playing outside in their own yards or in neighbor kid’s yards having a real blast together. The idea of outside fun is a good kind of fun, and it gives your child a chance, to discover their world and the world around them. Kids who are truly happy and pleased are those kids that are found in parks, on playgrounds, and other places that are three dimensional in description. This is not putting TV and video games down at all, mind you, it is just saying that kids will have lots more fun and make tons of friends if they don’t limit themselves. If children stay inside all the time and don’t venture outside. The will become solitary, sort of lonely, and feel that they cannot make friends. So, with this said, give them the choice to get out and do all the wonderful things they can outside the house too. They still can do TV and video games, here and there, but limit the time that they do spend with both of these in a major way. Otherwise, they will not ever want to go outside, and find all the fun that is waiting for them out there.

This means that each person makes their own happiness in this world and enjoys that very special happiness with those that they love the most in the entire world. Material things are just material things and people things are worth far more than material things. Happiness is a condition that comes from the heart and soul of a person. It is also something that is precious and worth far more than the price of gold. Don’t buy them lots of things that they will never have use for or even pay attention to. Spoiling children is a okay, some of the time, but not all of the time. You make the best happiness for your children by showing them your love and depth of feeling for them. This is something that cannot be bought and doesn’t have a price tag on it. Teaching them all about happiness is something that comes straight and directly from the power of love and not the power of a dollar. Happiness is something that comes on its own and you cannot force it by bribing your kids. Surely, kids do love toys and play things, but we they love more in the world is to have their parent spend time with them. So, with this said, create real happiness for them and teach them how to be happy with your presence and the things that they do have. You don’t have to buy their affections to get their love. Just love them. It’s as plain and simple as that.
- Appreciation – A lot of children in today’s world are selfish and spoiled. However, you can avoid your child becoming this way, by teaching him or her what true appreciation is all about. Appreciation is the one force in the world that does make a difference in a big way. The definition of appreciation here is something that goes far beyond just saying “thank you” to someone who gives your child a gift or shows them an act of kindness. Kids need to be thankful to their parents for a roof over their head, food in their mouths, and clothes on their back. They can also be thankful to mom and dad, to aunts and uncles, and to grandparents for other things such as toys and bikes. However, the biggest thankful of all is to God for their lives. Appreciation takes on so many forms. It would be hard to teach kids about all of the different forms of appreciation that do dwell in the world. Nonetheless, the biggest and most important of all appreciations is those that they have in their lives now. They have so many blessings to be thankful for and this is why they should never be selfish. When you count your blessings it is a good thing. This is because there are lots of other little children out there who don’t have the things that they do have. Some kids don’t have enough food in their bellies. Some kids don’t have a regular roof over their heads. Some kids don’t even have a toy at Christmas or an Easter basket filled with candy at Easter Time. So, with this said, true appreciation that children should be taught about is for all they do have, including the love of parents, which other kids may not have either. Appreciation should be taught to begin with each and every child. Teach your children to appreciate life’s everyday things that they do have.

This is because other kids aren’t as fortunate as they are and would like to be this fortunate.

Some of the other things that you will expect from your child is for them to pitch in and help out around the house with chores. Feed the pets, take the garbage out, help mom with cooking dinner, vacuum the carpet, get the mail from mailbox, get the newspaper, and take the dog for a walk. These are just some of the many chores that parents can give kids to do. Kids who have high standards are kids who will teach their own kids the same values that they possess one day.
