Parenthood is one of the joys of life, so it only makes since that you want to help your child grow up happy and healthy! Here are the top ten habits to instill in your child at a young age.
Make Dinner a Family Affair
It is extremely important for a child to get time with their family every day! One of the best time to do this is dinner around the table, (not the television!) This way everyone has time to catch up with each other and talk about their days. Family meals are a great way for your child to connect with their parents and siblings daily. Also, when the entire family sits down at a meal it often prompts a healthier meal to be served!
Brush twice a day
Make sure that you teach your kids to brush their teeth twice a day! Set aside time for someone to brush with them every morning when they get up and every night before they go to bed. Start doing this with your child as soon as possible and make sure they understand how important dental hygiene is!
Find Activities They Love
Every child is different and will enjoy different things. Sign them up for many different activities, and this doesn’t necessarily mean just sports. These are skills they can grow and develop all through their life, but you shouldn’t by any means force them to stay in these activities if it becomes apparent that they don’t enjoy them. Great activities to get them involved with include, but aren’t limited to;
- Piano lessons
- Gymnastics classes
- Dance Lessons (Yes, even the boys)
- Soccer Leagues
Don’t Skip Breakfast!
Help your child jump-start their day by feeding them a healthy breakfast! Breakfast has been scientifically proven to help a person be more positive throughout the day and getting your child on a steady breakfast-lunch-dinner schedule helps keep from unnecessary snacking! Also, eating a non-sugary breakfast gives them all the energy they’ll need throughout the day!
