A child is just like soft clay, he going to shape as the way you mold and nurture him! The interesting fact with kids is that they are good at learning; unlike adolescents they do not make excuses or arguments.
So, if your child is also young then try imparting some of the below mentioned grooming tips:
The first thing that you can teach your kid is the importance of cleanliness in our lives. He should be habitual of taking a bath and brushing teeth twice every day. In case you child is a bit afraid or stubborn while getting into the tub each day then make it a fun time for him. Bathing can be interesting too, you can add his favorite toys and bubble bath solution in the bucket to amuse and encourage him to be regular in the shower.
Apart from this, he has to know the basic habits like washing hands, feet and face after coming from outdoors. You can also buy him some essential products like paper soaps and sanitizers. These are crucial for his hygiene and health too!
Another important area of concern while grooming a kid is imparting good manners. Your kid should be made aware of every little thing like how important it is to greet someone when you meet them.
Also, speaking properly in polite tone is vital in making him a good person in life. Do remember that the way parents talk to their child affects their tone of speaking a lot. So, you need to make sure that you do not use any abusive language in front of the kid. And parents should never fight or argue while having kids around. Basically because they are very fast at picking up and imitating such things.
A kid should start eating by himself as soon as he becomes self-sufficient. You can teach him table manners and how to eat every type of food (with a fork, spoon and knife) to groom him well. Most importantly ensure that your kid eats all the food taken by him. Educate him the meaning of a meal and how lucky he is being gifted by the opportunity to have it.
Such things make a kid more sensible, be it the matter of food or anything else.
We all know that kids are innocent at heart and their fights don’t really mean anything serious. But even if it is for a moment, grooming your child with the habit of forgiving others and being nice to others in the time of difficulty can be of great help to him in future.
This will also make him have a control over his anger and feeling of hatred, something most of the teenagers now a day are found struggling with!
Do it yourself
Parents are fond of pampering their children; this often becomes a hurdle in their way to learn new things in life. An over protective nature is good but up to a certain limit. You should encourage your kid to do his works like dressing for school, brushing teeth and combing hair by himself. He should also be aware of the fact that he needs to keep all his belongings at their right place after he returns home from school or from the playground.
Children are very sensitive and vulnerable at the same time. If you want to inculcate some good habits to groom them correctly, try seeking an easy way out. It is important that every parent behaves like his child’s best friend right from the beginning. Well, this does not mean you don’t have to scold them for the mistakes but merely shouting at them is not going to solve the purpose of making them realize their mistake.
If you find convincing your child to follow all these tips difficult, make it fun for him. You can also reward him with his favorite eatable whenever he does a good job as a motivation. But make sure he doesn’t become use to of such type of encouragement. Also, keep an eye on him from back, protect him when he falls and keep feeding him with these good thoughts!
