Being a kind person
Each day to be kind to yourself helps you be a better parent.
Moms and Dads are always thinking of the children and their parents 1st. That is a kind and thoughtful action. However we need to remember to take care of ourselves 1st to be the best for our loved ones. We need to listen to soothing music like Dean Martin and Tony Bennett by ourselves without the family and friends. The best time to do this is of course is after you put the children to bed. It gives you the chance to experience relaxing and peaceful moments.
Try to work together as a team with the family and friends to be able to take a walk by yourself. I walk early in the morning about 5-6am before I need to get the family up for the day.
Join a book club, tennis club golf club, chess club, dance class, art class, music class, etc. You will find that you will be a happier person. Your confidence soars. You have more inspiration
to be creative with any hobby. You will discover that you enjoy decorating the house. You will have more to time to clean the house and clean the clothes and cook yummy home-
You can watch cooking shows like the Chew to give you that boost "I can do anything." You will encourage your family and friends to cook with you at the b'ques so that it is a happy experience to deeply connect with one another.
As a group you will bring out the best in one another. All of the children will be happy to hear and see their parents laughing and relaxing. The children will feel safe to be themselves.
When we are open to new ideas and respect others ideas without a confrontation with family and friends a child
will learn from the examples within their environment at home,school,dance class, or sports with their coaches.
They will admire the qualities of compassion,thoughtfulness, loving kindness, unselfishness, thinking of others, feed the homeless, donate time at a nursing home, helping other children that do not have sports equipment, doing a fund raiser for children that have cancer at school,etc.
Be your Best so that the children can be their best. Please take the time to listen and be interested with your children's hobby's.
All children want to feel that the parents & grandparents & coaches & instructors care about them to guide them gently with a smile instead of a frown; or laugh with them as they
make a mistake so they do not take themselves so seriously. We see to many children & the teens sad because we adults do not laugh at our own mistakes. The great comics know how
to treat life with loving care and balance life gracefully.
