life is all about doing little things!

I have seen people doing complicated things in life like pursuing education, choosing demanding professions, working hard to earn a living, spending time under challenging hobbies and trying their best to make their lives easier. Usually, people think they will become something big in life and will start enjoying life after that! They believe when their present projects will finish they will change their lifestyle and will choose to have fun on a daily basis. They keep on doing their odd stuff with the hope that one day they will leave their struggle towards a comfortable life and start living their life fully!

LIFE USUALLY ENDS IN DOING THE SAME THING EVERYDAY AND THE DAY COMES WHEN WE FORGET ABOUT OUR INITIAL PLANS ABOUT LIVING!

Do I question you whom you love most – your goal or your journey towards the goal? You will say your goal with no doubt; however, it should be your journey. Your goal will last only for a few days to celebrate and feel pride off; however, your ride will keep you involved for almost all of your life. So if you choose your goal, you will not be enjoying your journey, or you will not be living entirely for the rest of your life. If you select the drive, you will probably enjoy for most parts of your life and your goal as well.

The same ideology will apply to your little, trivial, minor things in life. Suppose you are planning to go for a movie night with your friends. You will have two choices- enjoy the time while watching a movie or experience with your friends even before the show-time. Choose the second option so that you could enjoy more! Buy some chips with great enthusiasm, enjoy shopping for food, have fun with travelling towards the cinema, and come back with great memories and happiness. It is not the movie that you are going to watch, essential to making you happy; you intend to watch it with your friends that is more important. Likewise, you can check your whole lifestyle and choose the traveling time towards your goals to enjoy more than your goals (only).

Little things that we ignore in today’s fast-paced world are essential to care for. You might say that you have no time for these stupid things- but actually, you have no guts to make you happy and alive. So please do stuff for you and your family – little and meaningless. You can choose from thousand small ideas and make your life easier and happier. From little things, I don’t mean to buy a flower for your wife or husband or buying a toy for your son or daughter. Instead from little things I intend to listen to each other carefully, to pay attention to your children with love and smile, to walk together to enjoy each others company, to have dinner together to chat about fun stuff or to sleep with peace and chill!

Life is all about simplicity, peace and fun. It has nothing to do with high aims, goals and objectives. Though you cannot ignore the ultimate aim of your existence; you should not ignore the price you are paying for it. If you are giving your whole life to bring about a change in your lifestyle, it is not worth doing it. Your efforts should make you happy and fulfilled at the same time your goals. Keeping both things in harmony would take you to the highest level of peace and ecstasy. This is how we become the real HUMAN.

How To Improve Interaction And Attachment Between You And Your Children  

 

There are many activities that you can choose from to create a wonderful environment at home while playing with your kids, but in this article I will only focus on things that need no or small amount of cash and will provide maximum pleasure of interaction and attachment between you and your toddlers.

1. Stickers

You may buy stickers for your and your kid’s choice and guide your child to stick them on their favorite toys to look better. For example, they can make eyes on several items; they can put the ball like stickers on the wheels of their cars to make the wheels more beautiful; they can fix many things with the help of stickers. It is so much fascinating and creative activity that not only provides your child a good hand and eye co-ordination rather is vital for strong bonding between you and your children.

2. Draws

If you have one simple table with draws, you can create many activities with your child. She can put her clothes, socks, scarf, hats, shoes etc. in them separately and can play with them at the same time. Similarly kids can enjoy putting their favorite stuff like dolls or cars in draws from time to time. You can join them by putting their toys in draws and can create a friendly and harmonious environment at the same time.

3. Books.

Books are very cheap in charity shops. Parents can buy lots of them, and both kids and parents can enjoy together while talking to each other and having fun with their kids. If you buy a magnetic book (or make it at home without magnetic part of it) it will pay you much more than its price in terms of attachment and satisfaction. Kids just love to put different stuff on pictures whether they stick or not.

4. Painting and Drawing

There are many kinds of paints and markers available in market nowadays, but if you buy a simple black slate or white board to draw with simple chalks or color markers, you can share lots of things together. For older kids, painting is very interesting activity, if one of their parents joins them in their refreshment and learning time.

5. PC or Laptop Fun

If you have a computer or laptop at home, your kids would like to see their favorite series/items (depends on their age level) on it too, and you both may enjoy while sitting together. If you have to do something very important, your child can watch her favorite item separately and you can also do your surfing separately in one window! Moreover, your kid can enjoy typing ‘a’, ‘b’, ‘c’, etc. if you buy a separate keyboard for her so that she could move her little fingers freely.

6. Food Fun

You can offer your kids lots of things that they can cut and make their favorite items like cars, dolls, animals etc. Such baking cutters are easily available in markets and are not very expensive too. Kids love to enjoy in meal times too so providing them this activity will also increase their appetite.

7. Cards

You may buy the memory cards from the market or can make them yourself free of cost. Kids usually love cards of different pictures, colors and figures. You may create many games with cards that all depend on the nature of cards and age of your child. In this way, you and your child may play together while having immense fun and learning.

8. Join Them

The last important thing is to join them whatever they are doing. For boys if they are playing with cars, try to fix their car problems, make new cars out of old ones, find new routes for them, change their shape if possible, etc. if you are with girl and she is playing with dolls, try to make doll stuff yourself. It shows all your affection and love that your child will never ignore. And you do not need any training for that, it is just a matter of willingness to join your kids whatever they are doing.

In short, parents can enjoy with their kids while doing lots of things together if they have time and energy at some point of the day. The important thing is that, toddlers need someone’s presence with them to have parallel play otherwise they will not be so much involved and enthusiastic in learning or playing. Parents need to watch them carefully how they like to play with and then they can add something from their side as a guide and teacher. Toddlers will not follow the instructions of parents rather they need to be listened patiently and tactfully for most of the time. The activity routine needs to be changed too. One activity every day will lose its effectiveness and you with your kid will not find it interesting anymore after a few days. So different activities on different days will enhance your Child’s IQ and will provide to both of you the best quality time ever.
