Children are delightful people who carry an energy within them. What are you doing to help channel and soak up that spirit, as parents?

Have you ever thought about what your child’s spirit is? Have you tried to bond with your child? Since it’s not a physical concept, it may be quite hard to understand. Simply put, your child’s spirit is the energy he brings with him. You can feel it when your child enters the room, converses with you, or performs any other activity.

It may be closely linked to your child’s personality. Is your child highly social? Or does your child prefer being alone, playing with ride-on toys or gadgets? Your child’s spirit manifests in how he interacts with the world. It show’s itself in the different characteristics which make your child unique.

As a parent, it’s important for you to nurture your child’s spirit. Fortunately, there are many ways to do this. The most important thing to do, however, is to be genuine in all your actions. Children sense emotions better than adults. If you’re not genuine, your child will feel it.

Here are 7 ways to bond with your child

1. Involve your child in different family activities

  • When your child feels loved, his spirit becomes stronger. That’s why it’s important to involve your child in different family activities.
  • Avoid performing tasks at home which aren’t appropriate for your child. If you cannot avoid such tasks, explain to your child why you cannot involve him in it. Then, give your child another task so he can work next to you.
  • You can also think of different activities you can do together as a family. Make this a routine so you spend a lot of quality time with your family. When you notice your child’s spirit, he will never be too tired to have fun with you and the rest of the family.

2. Accept each other as a family

There may be times when you don’t understand your child. That’s okay. The important thing is that you let your child know that you accept him. If the behaviors aren’t destructive, accept them too.

If you have a little girl and she absolutely adores cars, encourage that. Play games or watch movies about cars. You can even learn about cars together as a family. There are many ways such as this to show your child acceptance.

3. Develop your child’s imagination and creativity

Let your child rest, relax, and imagine. If you find your child daydreaming at some point in the day, let him. Daydreaming is an important part of growing up. It enhances a child’s imagination and creativity.

Don’t break your child’s spirit by scolding him when he’s daydreaming. Instead, sit with your child and daydream together. Or, gather the family together and create stories from your imagination. This is a fun activity which will bring you closer to each other.

4. Allow your child to play

Play is also an essential part of a child’s life. In fact, it’s one of the most important parts. Allow your child to play. This develops different aspects of your child, even his spirit. It’s also a good idea to play with your child. When you play with your child, you create a stronger bond with him.

Just because you’ve grown up, that doesn’t mean that you have to stop playing. Spend some time playing with your child, you won’t regret it.

5. Keep on encouraging your child

As a parent, you need to be your child’s number one fan. Whenever your child does something, celebrate his efforts too, not just the result. Also, try to avoid criticizing your child too much. If you keep on berating your child, it will weaken or even break his spirit. Involve other members of the family too. Make sure your whole household is a positive and encouraging one.

6. Genuinely listen to your child

This seems to be an easy task, but it’s not. When a child is young, he may not be able to express what he wants all the time. Either that or he keeps on talking until you run out of patience. In the first scenario, you may want to cut off your child mid-sentence and try to form the word for him. In the second scenario, you might want to cut your child off because you can’t focus on your thoughts.

If you don’t genuinely listen to your child, it may have a bad effect on his development. He’ll feel your impatience and lose confidence. Otherwise, your child may feel like you don’t want to listen. It may require a lot of patience, but genuinely listening will go a long way.

7. Keep your child happy and healthy

Your child health can also influence his spirit. If your child is unhealthy, he won’t be able to enjoy his childhood to the fullest. Make sure you take care of your child, so he remains healthy. A child with a healthy body is more likely to develop a healthy spirit.

Aside from keeping your child healthy, you also must keep him happy. No matter how busy you are, you make sure your child is happy with his life. All these tips will surely help in your quest to nurture your child’s spirit.
