Raising our Children to Be Happy Adults by Lisa Cypers Kamen of What is Your Happiness

By Lisa Cypers Kamen, Harvesting Happiness

When you first become a parent, you are learning at an exponential rate. What you knew about babies yesterday is nothing compared to what you know today.  Taking care of the needs of your baby from infant to toddler changes from serving primarily their physical needs to helping them grow in their emotional needs.  This change happens subtly as you begin to relate to your child as an individual with their own wants and needs.

Teaching your children about happiness is as important as teaching them nutrition, grooming and how to read and write.  All the skills in the world, won’t matter much if your child is unhappy.  Unlocking the secrets to your child’s own internal happiness is something you can do together and will create lasting joy for both of you. For what is more rewarding for a parent than seeing their adult child happy and fulfilled in life.

Helping your child indentify what makes them happy is part of the process.  Talking with them, taking them to have new experiences and trying new things with them is a great start.  Teaching them that happiness is a choice and no matter what happens in the situation – they win or they lose , that how they respond is up to them.  Learning at an early age that many things are beyond our control, but how we respond to those situations is a valuable lesson that can increase your child’s happiness exponentially in their life.  And as parents, it doesn’t hurt to remind ourselves of that too.  Parenting is a difficult job and giving our children the skills to succeed in life, in happiness and in their heart begins with you.
