Happiness is a laughing matter. Don’t you think that we all born with the membrane of happiness? Babies start smiling and laughing after a couple of months they come to this world, their feet kick, hands clasp. They use their body language attempting to tell everyone how much they are excited to feel the joy of happiness in this world. When you watch children running around the playground, you will think they are having so much fun. Children run around and play as if by instinct. Sometimes the children know better than we do about the pursuit for happiness. The research told us that a child laughs 200 times per day as an average because the children get no cap on their curiosity to explore, whatever they see is interesting. They express their love in the most direct evangelist form.
When time goes by, their hearts began to harden up to deal with the world that is too loud, too fast, too bright, and too cruel to bear. Parents, teachers, and peers formulate some conditioning to tell the kid who he is supposed to be, act and think like, in order to get what he wants. The kid might think whatever he is doing can never reach the parent’s expectation. The connection between his true self and the ego-self is broken. If a person has the heart of a child, he would smile a lot more, cry less, and laugh harder. Let the kid keeps his child heart from his early years until his twilight years.
How to spend time with your kid enjoying a good laugh from our days?
1. Shake the track of routine
Traveling is a great way to make the routine a shake. Let’s go somewhere. Pack the things, go travel. There is no place that the kid isn’t curious to explore, no food that he isn’t determined to try, no cap on his curiosity and no ceiling. How many worlds would the kid make up in his head? Every trip liked an Easter egg-riddled journey. He would be so excited when you try to bring his curriculum alive through a trip to a place he is studying. What are inside the jar of memories from traveling? It might be the experience to stay in a tree house, enjoyed the sunlight through the tangle of green limbs swaddled the tree house like a living hammock. The memories must be the adventure occupied by laughing, inclusiveness, and a big heart.
2. Allow yourself some time to laugh, to be silly, with your kid.
Children have a full-time occupation. It calls playing! When your child asks you to play with him, you might say, I don’t have time for that. Adults have responsibilities, we are serious. What if play with the kid, right now, this minute.
I think to have a little fun, a time for pure silliness and happiness with your kid is an essential part of every day.
3. Find humor in a difficult situation, you win.
I have heard a story like that:
John was a famous artist. One day, a car hit him just as he turned around. The careless driver got out of the car and checked whether John got hurt or not. John said, “Oh, you are bad luck. If you killed me by this accident, your name could appear on the news headline!”
There is no objective way to tell you if you have a good day or a good hour. Your life is a success based only upon your judgment. It is not what happened, it is how you think about what happened. The same event can be seen positively, or it can be seen negatively. It depends upon your perspective. The ability to find humor in a difficult situation is a character to see the world through a positive lens, and subconsciously tell the mind that everything is ok. Positive energy is contagious. It did help the kid to build up a positive attitude to go through a hard time.
