As a mother what you want to achieve is o raise your child in a happy and vibrant place – without stress, worries and hate about what happened to the life you have with his or her father. Allowing your kids to know the reasons behind the decision to part ways with your ex-partner is a way of letting them free of worry and hate from what happened between you. That way at an early age they will realize that life will test you at its best and there are times when giving up is fine, because by giving up you as a mom can be the champion of all the battles.
You might busy from work and all the things you have to do to live the life you have with your kid, do not get tired of making them feel relief.
Here are tips on how you can take care of your kid in a happy harmony.
Bringing up a happy, optimistic kid begins from a loving parent who demonstrates love for herself and the people around her and for the kid a single mom has. Tell your kids every day how much love them. Be an affectionate mom and always hug them and encourage them to share their emotions too, that way you will know how to take care of them.
No matter how you are busy, offering your time to them is another way of showing love. Remember your kid needs time with you. The kid who grow up the most secure are the ones who have given much time from a mom – sharing time with your kids can be simple, like have a daily or weekly habit of reading a bed time story or get an ice cream or go to parks. You as a single mom is a busy one but it is important to set aside time every day for your kid.
- Validation and Praise
Take a moment and validate how you kid is doing and the feeling they have at the moment. Feeling goes a long way in teaching that kid on how to identify and manage emotions as they grow up. Validation and praise go hand in hand. Kids who grown up with desirable behaviors and healthy choices are often validated and acknowledged by a mom who did right decisions for their lives.
Regardless of whatever happens in your life, creating a happy and optimistic home environment translate into a happy child. You do not need to have a magic want to wave to make your kid perfect but the happiness begins with a mom who is happy about life.
