Everyone has memories from their childhood that they never forget. Even though we may not remember the conversation or the context in which the memory remains. However, some things have a habit of sticking with us and there are some things that the kids won’t ever forget.
Remembering Feelings And Experiences Over Things
Children may not remember the first toy you got them for their birthday or all the times that you went out for ice cream. However, what they will remember is the feeling that they had when it was just you and the kids at the ice cream shop or when you went to play ball with them. Ensure that they have a good time rather than just buy them things.
Remembering When You Were All Attentive
We understand that you have many responsibilities and tasks to do as an adult. However, when you put your devices down and pay all your attention to your kids, they will remember the moment when you put them before your work.
Remembering The Appreciation You Have For Them
Parents tell their children that they love them all the time and it has become an overused statement. Children are very sensitive and you have to appreciate the little things they do. Tell them that you are proud of them and that they are an important member of the family. Such things have a way of sticking with children as they grow up.
Remembering The Way You Deal With Situations
You are the first mentors of your children and they always look up to you during tough times. The world is full of mean people and you are the barriers that protect your children from all the problems. They will always remember how you dealt with the problems that came upon your family.
Remembering The Times You Were Not There
While this may seem to be a negative thing, it can also be taken as a positive trait. When you are not there for your kids during the times that they need you, they learn to be independent and when they grow up to be adults with responsibilities, they remember the times when you let them deal with tough times on their own.
Remembering How You Treat Each Other And Other Adults
Kids are sponges that will absorb and reflect any type of behavior that they see around them. If you have friendly relations with the people around you, the kids will remember that and will grow up to treat others as the same. However, if you project hostility around your children, they will have an adult life where they are unable to form good friendships.
Remembering How You Dealt With Stress
You can have a jam-packed schedule and will not always have the time to deal with the daily routine things. Somedays the dinner will not be ready on time while on others you will not have the time to attend the PTA meetings of your children. Your children will see how you deal with this stress and manage your time, acting the same way when they grow up.
