(18) Read story books
As it is said Books are our best friend
Knowledge will always stays with you

And discuss on the moral for 5 to 10 minutes
What is the benefit in reading story books?

- There vocabularies will increase
- Will get a lesion to learn
(19) Do exercise
As it is said “survival of the fittest”
Waking up early and then you can go for a walk, jogging and
You can do yoga and basic exercise
So you can do anything you like to or if you are confuse?
Then make a weekly schedule
So how to motivate our kids to do exercise?
Here there is one way that is how much you are active in morning time same your son/daughter will carry forward
So you have to be hyper active and see the amazing results
(20) Don’t blame anyone for your mistakes
Accepting your mistakes is a big thing
If you are accepting it then you have the golden chance to grow out of it
So make a habit of accepting your mistakes to our kids?
The best way:- sit with them and make them release
Tell the difference between accepting mistake and not accepting it
But here you have to give example in which they are interested in like
Which thing (toy, food, cartoon character) they love them
Then they will connect fast
(21) Don’t harm animals
Animals are good they just want love from us
Here you can give the knowledge about animals, birds
Also give the knowledge of how to protect ourselves if they attack on us
(22) How to work
Here I clear you that this means when our children get’s any task, challenge, some work,
So that they can easily do it more perfectly and fast
One more thing that you have to give them ideas not the right path
The target is to develop there creative mind set
And you will notice day by day that now they are finding their way to do it in a good manner
(23) Value of time
Who use his time wisely known as smart person, right?
So as parents we also want our children to use time wisely
Don’t waste it just value it that how important it is, right?
Well 100% for sure
How to teach them to use time wisely
First way:- at the end of the day ask them about their days work
So you will come to know now what to do
Second way:- give them task to do that they can achieve it and then raise the bar
Try to make it a fun like adjust the task in there day’s schedule
- Speak the truth
Speaking truth is one of the best good habits
(24) How to make our kids a new habit of speaking truth?
First way:- explain trough stories that will register fast in kids mind
Second way:- keep reminding them at least once in a day is enough
Third way:- tell them what problems they may face if they don’t speak truth
And remember you also have to speak the truth in front of them
(25) Explaining the difference between right and wrong?
This is important for parents that they know the difference
Just think that if your son/daughter easily figures out that this is right and this is wrong, simply amazing right?
Well yes no quarries
How it will happen?
In one line “this will happen only when you will spend time with them”
A healthy discussion should be there on daily basics this will make a big impact
And secondly see how his/her mind set is about give examples accordingly and
See that it is not been too much
(26) Appreciate and celebrate
This is the best thing you should do
Appreciate them not only when they achieve something but also
For their efforts into work
And the second part is celebrate the event
“As we every time wait that event will come and we will celebrate but remember one thing the day you celebrate it that is a event and rest are the dates in the calendar”
So make a habit of celebrating it and if you do that those our kids will think that
I achieved this so we are celebrating it and everybody is so happy
So he/she think that once more I should achieved it
They will start focusing on their work and try to do it even better then the previous once
(27) How to solve their problems
See our children have different kind and level of problems
And that should be solved such a way that next time they also can find a better way to solve it
They have problems like so much home work to do, my friend is not talking with me, I don’t want to study, I want to do this – want to do that and it is endless
So here you have to be kid and give answers like give a chocolate to your friend,
Give them the way that how to manage your study and I am with you I will help you etc…
(28) Learn from mistakes
Children do mistakes and even we also do it, right?
Hmm but here talk about our kids
So if they do some work and they are making mistakes then
First solve it then ask them what you learnt from these mistakes
And you can tell to make a note of what you learnt from mistakes and
At the weekends sit with them and tell see you are so smart that you have learnt so many things
Appreciate them for trying a good thing
(29) Make learning a habit
I believe in one thing that whatever the result you get if you don’t learn from it then it is a waste of experience
If you are just focusing on your learning then you are going in the path of unstable you
How to make leaning a habit for kids?
At the end of the day ask them what you have learnt today
And even only one thing is more than enough how
Just do simple calculation 1 day = 1 thing he/she learnt than 30 days = 30 things
And here the speed of learning will increase in regular period of time
At he end sweet victory for parents
