Have you heard the news? I bet you have! We are happy that the government have move towards lifting some of the restrictions of the Circuit Breaker today!
This is definitely a step towards returning to our normal lives, albeit a new normal. However, we are still not fully out of the woods yet, and we should continue with our initiatives to stay safe.
So, today we would like to share the 6th and final poster of the WHO parenting tips, which is on the importance of good communications with our children. Our children want and deserve explanations as much as adults do. We should make sure our explanations and expectations are clear. If there is a problem, describe it, express our feelings in a positive manner and invite our child to work on a solution with us.
Hope the following tips are of help. Meanwhile, continue to stay safe and stay home!
As our Circuit Breaker continues till 1 June, we would like to share more about parenting tips on how to stay calm and manage stress.
Managing stress is a big concern for families who are stuck at home for prolonged periods. Remember to stay calm with your children. Your children will look for you for support and reassurance. Accept how they feel and give them your comfort. Hope the tips help.
Today, we like to focus on the common issue of children sometimes behaving. The parenting tips we like to share will certainly help to lessen the frequency of instances of trepidation whenever our children exhibit bad behviours.
Helping shape your children’s behaviour is a key part of being a parent. Children learn by watching everyone around them, especially their parents. When we use good manners and positive modeling behaviours, we will teach our children to do the same.
Working from home gets REAL when kids are added to the equation.
We are giving you parenting tips on the importance of having a proper structure when planning out your daily activities with your children. Having structured and well planned routine are beneficial when interacting with children especially the younger ones.
A daily structure helps with managing the spontaneity of active children and by doing so reduces our stress levels. Make sure that your structure has different meaningful routines, well spaced out with plenty breaks so that you won’t over exert yourselves.
Have a blast creating fun routines while you Stay Home!
As we are heading to the extension of the circuit breaker, we continue with our sharing on Parenting Tips. This time the parenting tip is on being positive with our children. We have to keep on looking for something positive each day even if some days we have to look a little harder.
The great Mahatma Gandhi once said:
“Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive because your words become your behavior. Keep your behavior positive because your behavior becomes your habits. Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values. And keep values positive because your values become your destiny”
We are already in our 4th week of circuit breaker which requires us to continue to stay home. Under such circumstances, we understand that frequently our patience gets tested, our tempers frayed and our moods darken. This is especially so with our children.
Today, what we wish to share with you is the first of a series of meaningful posters developed by the World Health Organization (WHO) on effective pareting tips. Take this opportunity to enjoy more quality time together and create more wonderful memories with them.
