Happy Boys!

3 years ago

Here are my tricks to raising happy boys. I’m sure these trick could work for girls too, but since I have boys, I am writing about boys.

Get them plenty of fresh air. A walk, cycle, or a picnic are all good, just get them outdoors. My personal favourite thing to do with my boys outside is to walk in botanical gardens. I love trees.

Give your boys time to be kids, to talk to each other, and be each other’s best friends. Don’t crowd their days with activities. Let them have plenty of free play.

Let them have secret bases, secret messages, and plot world domination together.

Let them roll in the grass.

And spend time with their dad.

Let them play rough with each other.

And fight to the death!

They need to spend time with their own thoughts too, so give them space when they need it.

Happy Boys!

 

Laugh with them every day, multiple times a day.

When you are trying to get a group photo, don’t expect perfection.

Take what you can get, and be grateful that the picture captures their personalities.

And the most important thing? Love them every second of every minute of every day. Boys are precious!
