Hello mothers, is it becoming hard to make your child understand things in a better way? We understand that children are very young to put themselves in any individual’s shoes and to understand their situations. Thus, we are here to help you with the same. This blog will help to make your child gain knowledge of empathy.
Children love games. Try to implant the seed of empathy from a very young age through different games. Give them situations and let them think of the solutions. Try to correct them if they are being harsh but don’t impose your opinions on them.
Children are very sensitive so make sure you present even the bold topics in a light way which will help them to understand where the things are going wrong and what should be their steps.
Make sure your words and your actions are similar. Your kid takes you as his/her role model and thus believes that you are always correct, so whatever you say or do in front of them, they quickly try to do the same in similar situations.
Always watch your tone while speaking. It is important that you teach your child the importance of tones so that they know when to speak in which tone. This builds their personality from a very young age as well.
Consistency plays a major role in every aspect of life, try to be consistent with your actions. If you are helping a street dog today make sure you do it every time you see the opportunity to do it. This makes your kid understand that being empathetic is not just a one-time thing.
Praise the small things about each other. Appreciate and embrace the little joys of life. In this way, you are making your child learn the importance of small gestures and habits. As an individual, it is your responsibility to have an attitude of gratitude towards everything.
Know the limitations as well. It is not recommendable to always nag your child for being empathetic. The changes develop in many years and thus you don’t have to rush the process. Just know what you are doing and where you need to let your child be the captain.
The last tip is involvement. Involve your child in your own small matters. If there is any family tension let your child know about that so that you can have his/her opinion as well. Healthy conversations, arguments, and discussions are always advisable for a healthy family.
