Guidelines for teaching children to be happier

Not everything in life is laughter, but luckily, happiness is also learned and we can teach our children to live in a more optimistic and positive way .

Childhood may seem like the happiest stage of life, but the truth is that it is not entirely like that . On his scale, the child is also upset and suffers. As parents we want the best for them and we have the opportunity to provide them with the tools to be happier . Experts say that education contributes 40% to the child’s personal well-being.

Here are some guidelines to make it so:


  1. Enjoy the moment

It is important to learn to live the intensity of the moment, and not only of the objective to be achieved, but of the entire process. From start to finish, it is important to learn to have fun with each step taken, with each lesson learned, and with each step climbed. If we can instill in them the importance of feeling happiness at every moment, they will enjoy the entire process and grow in it, without obsessing over winning, with results or with being better than anyone else.

  1. Be thankful

Giving thanks every day for the good we have, is a healthy habit that we must instill in children from a very young age. It will teach them that they have many things that are worthwhile and that, sometimes, we do not see beyond “our noses” because we are only worried about what makes us angry or sad. This is a life lesson that is sure to make you happier.

  1. Be positive

The important thing here is that we are positive and the child will be in charge of imitating us. Surrounding him with an environment without negativity will give him confidence and peace of mind.

  1. Know how to manage your anger

It is not bad to be upset or frustrated, but it is necessary to know how to channel these emotions. Allowing children to unleash and express feelings is essential to understand why they occur, and to be able to resolve them in a way that does not harm themselves or anyone around them.

  1. Be independent

Encouraging the child to be more autonomous every day will give him confidence in himself and he will live with the calm of knowing that he can take care of himself, even if there is no one to help him in his most immediate moment.

  1. Solve your problems

Letting him find the solution to his frustrations is good. Not always being there to make life easier will make you think, understand a little better how things work and learn to react autonomously when things get complicated in the future.

  1. Have healthy habits

The key to wellness is being healthy inside and out. Teaching them by example to eat a varied diet and exercise regularly will keep them in shape throughout their lives.

Let’s not forget that they will imitate us and that their well-being is our responsibility.
