7 Effective Tips for Your Child’s Positive Growth

Father Son Moments

    As parents, we always want our child (or children) to be physically as well as mentally healthy. We do not want to commit even a small mistake that can hamper our child’s growth. Moreover, a good start will surely help your child to live their dreams. We can understand that parenting is not easy especially when you take this responsibility for the first time. So, here we will share some basic and effective tips for your child’s healthy growth.

    1. Balanced Diet

    The human growth hormone (HGH), secreted by the pituitary gland, controls the growth of a child. One must eat the food that triggers this gland to release HGH. Feed your child with a diet rich in calcium, vitamins, minerals and especially proteins. The top food products that stimulate growth hormone in a child’s body include grains (brown rice, wheat flour, whole grain pasta, multi-grain bread, etc. ), fresh fruits and vegetables, eggs, oatmeal, soybeans, spinach and fish products.

    Also, try to add food products rich in zinc to the diet. These products include wheat germ, peanuts, pumpkin, squash seeds, and crab. Special attention should be paid to the food until your child reaches the adolescent age.

    2. A positive environment

    A lot of changes take place in the body of a baby in the first few years. During this period, parents and family members must ensure that the environment surrounding their baby is happy, full of stimulation, comfortable and positive. Do interact a lot with your child. The more you interact, the better your child’s communication skills will be in future. Active interaction promotes the growth of the child’s mind. This practice should be continued, as a positive and healthy environment is very necessary for the development of your child.

    3. Physical activity

    From the age of 2 years, you must start engaging your child in various physical activities. For the child in the age group of 2-5 years, dance classes and running are some of the best activities. During 6-12 years, biking, running, playing sports are necessary for his growth. These would help him/her to grow physically. Make sure that your child is engaged in some of the extra-curricular activities organized at his/her school. If the child learns how to maintain the right balance between studies and other activities at this stage, then believe us, he/she can do wonders later in life. When the child enters the teenage years, he/she can play sports like basketball, badminton, tennis, football, etc. and stay fit.

    Yoga also plays a great role in promoting growth and development. Sun salutation, tree pose, etc. are some of the best yoga postures. Yoga should be practiced by your child when he/she is older.

    4. HGH supplements

    These are the supplements that could help you increase your kid’s height and weight. A lot of HGH supplements are available in the market, but don’t go for any random one amongst them. You must research properly about an HGH supplement and then choose one for your child.

    Whether it is effective or not? Whether it will have any adverse effect on your child’s health?

    Go for these supplements only when the doctors suggest you to, and nothing else is working out for improving your child’s growth. Avoid using these in the early stages of development. Do not overuse them—what effects they have on a person in the later phases of life needs to be studied more.

    5. High-intensity workouts

    Children under 16 years of age are not recommended to lift weights. That could, in fact, hamper your child’s growth. This is the age when only high-intensity workouts or sports are suggested. Sports like basketball, tennis, and badminton are the best for your child as they involve jumping, which increases height.

    6. Sleep

    There are certain things that we might neglect but are of utmost importance. Proper sleeping hours and sleeping patterns also affect your child’s growth. Maximum growth hormone stimulation takes place when you sleep. Not only this, but good sleep also calms the mind and enhances efficiency. The best sleeping hours are from 10 pm to 4 am. Make sure that your child sleeps early at night. According to the National Sleep Foundation report published in the year 2015, children of the age group 3-5 years need 10-13 hours of sleep, school-age children between 6-13 years should sleep for around 9-11 hours a day. Teenagers should take a proper sleep of 8-10 hours.

    7. Other Factors

    Various other factors can also hamper your child’s growth. Make sure your child is not addicted to any drugs or alcohol. These things have a terrible effect on your child’s health as well as growth. Further, your child should be stress-free. Especially in the adolescence period, the child can experience immense internal as well as external pressure. Parents should teach their kids how to tackle their problems and lead a stress-free life. These factors are more prominent in teenagers, so parents must take care that the child has a happy attitude and is not under any mental pressure. Apart from this, do not let your child be a social media maniac or gaming freak at an early stage because that could affect your child’s growth negatively.

    So, these are some of the very effective parenting tips that might help you a lot in promoting proper growth and development of your child. We hope you will follow them and also share them with others so that each one could get the most out of these simple parenting hacks.
