You’re thinking about what is best for your child. You want to help them grow into good people. You are thinking of ways to do it, but don’t know where to start. Luckily, we can help you with that.
Below mentioned are the 7 ways you can help your child prepare for a bright future.
Become a happier person
As a mother, it is necessary to create an environment that isn’t hostile but more positive. Doing this will make your child interpret surrounding themselves in an environment that has no “bad vibes” is for them.
A study found for a child living in an environment where the mothers’ stress affected life around the house cruelly affected the child. So even though you are dealing with stressful things and juggling work and taking care of your kid(s), it’s vital to create a positive environment.
Choose the right, safe, affordable neighbourhood
I’m sure that you know this by now. The overall theme of these tips is the environment. So in terms of choosing a neighbourhood, here are some things to consider. So when choosing, it is necessary to choose a safe and trusted neighbourhood with schools that have stellar ratings in academics, sports, and extracurriculars.
The description above is the general way to make sure that a child has the best experience growing up. However, studies from over 50 years of social sciences have shown mixed results. If you don’t have the luxury of buying a home in a safe neighbourhood, you could always pick the cheapest. (Unfortunately, in most cases, it doesn’t work.)
So if you don’t have the money for a house in the “neighbourhood that has all,” find one that fits your budget.
Your child’s success later in life is often assisted by ensuring a stable, healthy, and the academic environment from the beginning. Is that the facility or home safe? Who has access to the children? Have all staff passed a background check & been certified in CPR? Is it loud and chaotic or ordered with structured activities?
Quality childcare doesn’t come cheap, so confirm the worth is not the only factor you think about. Assistance is out there for working parents within the type of Child Care Subsidies or softwares like CCMS, often overseen by the Department of Children and Family Services.
Let your kid(s) do some of the chores
Whether it’s mopping the floor, helping you vacuum the house or yard work, let your kids do chores. At first, they won’t like them like how most of us were. But the process of doing chores will teach your kid that having a clean environment will affect them positively.
It will teach them ways to be responsible and how to take action self-autonomously.
Praise them (In the right way)
Yes. There’s a correct way to praise your child. For instance, your kid won their basketball tournament. Instead of saying they’re smart or athletic, praise by saying, “great job.” This will help your child continue succeeding in what they do.
Teach your kids how to Read and do Math at an early age
At a young age, your child’s brain is still developing and making those “connections” in the brain. So, it is necessary to push your child into reading books and doing some math problems in a workbook. Also, a study found that most of the self-made millionaires out there had something that they did when they were younger. About 60% of these self-made millionaires were required by their parents to read books daily. Math is the same.
A researcher from Northwestern said that children need to start practicing math to not only succeed in math but to help advance your child’s reading.
