Whenever parents are asked about kids they simply talk about what actions they are performing to foster tomorrow and their future. They are only thinkign about tomorrow. Is it the need of 5 year old to worry about situation which is after next 20 years. Not a all, what we need to do is to train them to learn and enjoy present moment. It is time to teach them to live in present. Here are some of they ways of being in present moment.
1. Play essentially:
The way we insist going regularly to schools we should also motivate them to go at playgrounds and enjoy with friends consistently. Laughing and enjoying with them is essential as we are being in the memories of their life. Research suggests that play increases cognitive ability of kids. With cognition we enhance the quality of grasping power of kids.
2. Involve in playing as well:
With the play it is also important to be with them. Enjoy playing with them, involve them and motivate them to play regularly. Eventually with play they start loving our company and we begin a journey of friendship. There is no replacement for such a feeling of friendly relationship and the bond increases as we spend more time together.
3. Ask about daily suggestions to increase involvement:
Kids are not kids only, they are the part of our family and life as well. Lets ask them for their suggestion for most of the issues and try to involve them in decision making as well. This creates a sense of belongingness among them and they start feeling as they are important in life and home too. Authority creates responsibility and with responsibility they start involving in family life more and eventually the bond grows.
4. Discuss about people behavior:
What is right or what is wrong?. No one knows it is all about perception in the world. But try to practically discuss what is right behavior and observe other people and discuss about their behavior to make your point and help them to understand the same.
5. Eating and travelling together:
The family which eats together, travels together eventually grows together. See any great families, they have created the family tighter bond only by spending lives together with each other. It is your those moments in which you share your life and start growing your emotional bond together.
If parents concentrate on family relationship bond more than their materialistic world surely the bond grows at much deeper level.
