Magic of a hug

Hugging has magical powers. You don't believe this. If you don't then for once go ahead and give a tight hug to your kid and feel the difference. You cannot express that in words but you will feel what a HUG can do to you and to your child.
Many of us do not give value to hugging. In fact, in some cultures, hugging kids often is considered as a way to pamper him/ her and spoiling the child in long run. However, it is not so. On the contrary, hugging has several health benefits. It has magical benefits on both the parties.
 
Hugging is important for child development.
 Babies feel emotionally secure and loved  when they are close to the body of their  parents. Complete child development includes mental growth too. Kids who are deprived of  touch and affection are likely to be emotionally weak in comparison to kids who are loved and hugged often.

Hug generates positive vibes.
 When you hug your child, he is filled with love, laughter, affection, confidence and positivism. It applies to you too! Hug generates positive emotions in the related brain cells and creates an optimistic atmosphere around the people.
                                                 

Hug means acceptance.
When you hug someone you mean that you are embracing him/ her despite of his flaws, mistakes or weaknesses. Kids need such assurance that though they fail to match your high expectations, they are still loved. When you  give a hug to your disobedient son/ daughter, you mean that you may not like his/ her behavior but you still love him/ her like before. Forgive and forget your child's mistake with a hug.

Hug a day keeps stress away.
Hug is the gateway to happiness and optimism. It instantly reduces stress of children as well as yours. Go ahead and give a nice hug to your children.

Hug has medicinal properties.
 Yes, of course. Give a hug when your child is ill, in pain or sad, and see the positive change in his health. When you connect to him via hug, he gets charged up, energized and relaxed.

Strengthen your bond with your kids through hugging.
If you want to fill the gap between your kids then take a step and embrace them now. Hugging strengthens the bond and makes a relationship more beautiful and worthy.

A Gift For Lifetime For Kids

Look at the kids playing in the nearby park or at your home? Wherever there are kids, you can find sounds of giggles, laughter and chirpy tones in their language. Now look at yourself. As adult, you and I are constantly occupied in our tasks or thoughts, trying to figure out how to meet deadlines or pay bills or to outshine from others. The vivaciousness and bubbly nature that used to be a part of our personality as kids has gone out of the window. We are machines that execute tasks and responsibilities. For sure our kids would become the same!

Can you imagine your kid or any kid without his / her natural effervescence? Can you visualize kids without their celebratory mode on? It is the unique feature find in special species called KIDS. The kids are usually and naturally in celebration mode, not like us hooked to one mode. One parent is running after money and other busy in house chores or may be both of them running for something or the other.

With role models like us and the growing competition in life soon kids will become boring, unexciting species like us with agendas and deadlines going on.
WHAT to do to retain their vivacious nature?
Have you any ideas what can be done to retain their smiles, their high spirits and their lively attitude towards life?                          

  • Well let them laugh loudly at silly things. 
  • Even better join them in things that appear to be weird, silly or rubbish at least sometimes.
  • Let them run, play or trip in the house without bothering about the aftermath like cleaning the house ( for some time). Too much of fussing about cleaning is going to erase the layer of liveliness from them.
  • Grades are important but  expecting perfection or highest grades in the class is very stressful. These unrealistic expectations often take away the innocence of a child.
  • Comparisons with other kids is injurious to emotional heath. Therefore, avoid making comparisons and accept the unique qualities of your little darling.
  • Love them and they will love you back. This is the best way to make life beautiful. Your love can only help them to fight stress and take hurdles in their stride.
  • Preserve a cool and light atmosphere at home. It helps the kids to be expressive, creative and jovial. (Avoid behaving like you are sitting on a hot pan! I am working hard on this part. LOL)

The cheerful and lively nature is the true gift that we  parents can give to our children. Other gifts may lose their value but the sparkle on face of your child is we would like to preserve for lifetime.

Love begets love

Love makes the world go round. Whether it is between your parents, your siblings, your children or in any relation, love is the integral part that keeps the relation strong, positive and long lasting.

Parents too expect love from their children. They also want hugs and kisses without any reason from their children. However, one needs to remember that the way your children love you and shower their love on you largely depends upon the factor the way you love them.
Of course, you love your kids but we are talking about whether you express it or not and how you express it.
Without any fail, you wake up early in the morning, make meals for them, help them to get ready for school, wait for them to come back while finishing your chores, give them attention in the evening and make their bed at night. All the while did you remember to say three magical words that really lighten up the face of your little darlings. Did you say, " I love you" when your darling left for school or when he goes to bed? The words are simple but impact is magnificent.

Before you expect love, sow love in the daily life and in the hearts of your kids. If you are not in the habit of expressing your love to your kids then for once, change this habit. Go ahead and tell them how much you love them and care for them. It is an altogether different and beautiful experience when you shower your love on them and they reciprocate with same intensity. Love begets love!
                                                                                           
Frequent expression of love to your kids helps to:

  • remind kids that they are still loved despite of their shortcomings or failures.
  • assure them you are always with them come what may.
  • understand the significance of love in their life.
  • convert kids into happy and confident beings
  • come closer to your kids.
  • develop a strong relationship with them for life time.
  • make life bright and beautiful.
  • get loads of love from your children.

Make sure, before you crib for love from your kids, that you have instilled feelings of LOVE in them. They will follow your footsteps in future so, remember to give them precious, exclusive and lovely moments that they will cherish throughout their life.
