Now, move on today’s post.
Until now, I had shared most of creative posts and activities that helps in enhancing creativity and imagination power in kids, but in today’s post I am talking about overall personality development of kids. I am sure you all would be agreeing that childhood is most important and sensitive phase of life. And it is very important to inoculate positive personality traits in kids since childhood.
Positive personality traits help in raising a positive and resilient child. And as a responsible parent, it is our responsibility to shape our child’s personality with all possible positive personality traits. With a little effort and attention we can do that too.
Here I am sharing top 5 qualities that can help your little one on the path to acquiring each of these important assents.
Kids are innocent learner, they are impulsive by nature. I think “Self-discipline” has tremendous positive effect in any person’s life. It is all about being able to regulate yourself. A person armed with good self-discipline definitely has a better perspective in his life and can solve his life challenges more easily. Obviously, kids have shorter attention span and lack of self-control. But a little effort can make them more efficient. Self-regulation skills play a vital role in academic achievement. Studies suggested that kids those who have better self-discipline at early age develop better academic skills over the time. So, self-reliance is one of the most positive personality traits that we all should try to develop in our lids since at early age.
Passion for learning
We lived in a high-tech world and kids had a strong influence of this latest technology on their personality development. Sometimes, this over exposure may affect their learning capability and courage to try new things. They may get stuck on electronic gadgets and had a negative effect on their physical and mental status. So, I want to break this latest trend. Build a constant desire to learn new things are a great personality trait that is must for an overall personality development. They should have courage to try any new thing; it may be guitar, soccer or creative writing. This habit will help them not only in academic studies but also make them an independent and strong individual in the future as well.
Having a sense of self-contentment
Definitely, it is great to be ambitious in your life. You should have a strong desire to achieve your goal. Hard work with passion and ambition always help in success in all field of life. And for being excel in academics it is equally important. I want to make my kids ambitious with a strong desire to achieve their goals…but at the same time learn to be content and happy with their achievement is also necessary for happiness. We lived in a highly competitive world. Everyone wants to achieve everything and sometimes this over ambition may cause unhappiness and frustration. So, develop a sense of self- satisfaction and contentment is very important from the childhood.
Healthy body and healthy mind
It is true that “Health is wealth”, and for parents who care for their kids, their complete health (mental, physical and social) is always a matter of concern for them. Kids always had a tight schedule for everything from studies to art, music and sports will keep them busy all the time. But a healthy body is must for their better performance in each field. So as a parent it is our duty to serve them healthy meal and keep them physically active. We can limit their screen time and plan family physical activities for their good health. Having a Good mental and physical health would be beneficial for them to get succeed in every field.
Able to cope with adversity (and have fun)
Life is a beautiful journey, but at the same time it is challenging too. We had lots of expectation from our kids. Too much academic pressure may cause anxiety, depression and psychological disorders in kids. It may affect their happiness. So, it is best to develop a sense of humour in them. Laughter is a wonderful way to relive stress and anxiety. Having some fun family time is easiest way to connect together.
Sense of humour is a quality that can be developed in kids. And make them healthier and smarter. If they are being able to find fun in difficult situation, they would be able to cope with challenges in future.
So these are 5 qualities that I wish to nurture in my kids. What are your plans to make your kids succeed in life please share!
