Create happy memories with your child - Best School

  1. 1. Create Happy Memories With Your Child <br /><br />Online School Admissions<br />
  2. 2.<br />
  3. 3.<br />15 seconds: Draw smiley faces on their boiled eggs!<br />
  4. 4.<br />30 seconds: Tell them a story about a happy memory that you had as a child, its sometimes shocking to think your own parents had a life before you!<br />15 seconds: Tell them how special they are - children can hide their feelings very well and a few kind words can be their most treasured memory.<br />
  5. 5.<br />
  6. 6.<br />2 minutes: A treasure hunt - hide coins in their bedroom - either they could find it alone if they're old enough or you could help them with clues by saying 'You're hot! You're hot! When they're close to the coin, and 'You're cold, you're freezing, you're arctic!' when they're moving further away from it!<br />3 minutes: Tonight let your child see the stars - a free magic show. When was the last time you spent a whole three minutes looking at the stars? It's a chance for you to take a moment to regain perspective and realize how incredible life really is. Also, within this time, you are bound to see a satellite crossing, a shooting star and spot the seven sisters constellation! That's if it's a not long summer evening and you're not absolutely zonked already!<br />
  7. 7.<br />
  8. 8.<br />15 seconds: Praise something good they've done - whether it's saying thank you or helping you in a small way. Celebrate them often! Positive reinforcement for what they're doing right, rather than shouting at what they're doing wrong has been shown to be a powerful tool for encouraging good behavior. Your attention is their biggest reward and every word of encouragement is secretly treasured by your child.<br />2 minutes: At bedtime, read them this short meditation. These two minutes could be really special time for you to just 'be there' with your child:<br />
  9. 9.<br />
  10. 10.<br />You are trotting on a horse through thick grasses, while you listen to the birds singing. You watch a fox slipping through the woods and glance back at you for a moment. A deer pauses as you pass, remaining still and peaceful. Rabbits hop in the distance. A beautiful cat is sitting on the nearby fence, watching the dog beneath it as it lies in the hot sun with its belly up. You canter through the fields, pushing through the glorious winds. Even though you are moving quickly, everything seems still and peaceful. Light is shining from you, from the horse and from all your surroundings. The world is a beautiful place. As the horse gently slows from a canter to a trot and then a walk again, you take a long deep and slow breath and now it's time for dreaming. Goodnight!<br />15 seconds: Have a graffiti board! Take a big sheet of paper and stick it to the wall and let them doodle!<br />
  11. 11.<br />
  12. 12.<br />15 seconds: If you're tired and snappy or if you've both been angry, be the first to say sorry. That will be a much happier memory as life is short and precious.<br />1 minute: If you eat out, but they're bored and fiddling in their seats, bring a pen and paper next time and ask them to draw you their idea for an amazing new invention! Ask them lots of questions about it -What does it do? Would it come in different colors? What shop would they buy it in? How much would they charge you for it?<br />15 seconds: Say 'I love you' - if that sounds too hard for you, try saying how kind they are, how good they've been today or take a moment to give them a hug. This may seem obvious to some, but not so obvious to others!<br />
