12 Secrets From Parents Who Raised Happy Children



Everyone wants to see their child happy, right? There’s no better sight in this world than seeing a healthy, happy and smiling child who is enjoying the childhood they deserves.

After all, when you ask parents what they want for their kids, their most common reply is that they want to see their children happy. Even older parents still want to see their adult kids happy in life. But at the same time, it’s up to us to provide moral guidance, set the right kind of limits, and make sure we let our kids know when they step out of line. At the end of the day it’s all about balance, right?

While there’s no special formula that will help guide your child to a life full of happiness, there are certain steps you can take to make sure they are going in the right direction. Now, that’s not to say that each step will work (as each child and their needs are different), but it’s worth trying these tried and tested methods.

First and foremost, make sure that you are a happy person yourself! Kids love to emulate their parents, meaning they’ll most likely copy your moves and your moods, regardless of whether or not they are positive or negative.

2. Teach Them to Build Relationships

It doesn’t matter if it’s a relationship with a grandparent, a friendship at school, or even getting to know a neighbor: building relationships is incredibly important and kids need to learn this skill very early on. Set a good example yourself by maintaining healthy and active friendships and relationships in your own personal circle.

3. Teach Optimism
