Here’s How To Make Kids Love You

Here’s How To Make Kids Love You

Children are the cutest human beings on earth. They bring a lot of color and laughter to our lives. However, it does not mean that they don’t throw tantrums. Sometimes, kids do not want to talk or play with strangers or even with people they are acquainted with. If you love kids and you want to make kids love you, here’s how to do it.

Try our simple tricks and see the difference yourself!

1. Relax and enjoy whatever the activity is

We, as adults, usually have a lot of things to do on our mind. Due to this, we get easily irritated when kids don’t immediately follow our instructions. Just relax! Yes, that is one great tip I can give you. When you loosen up, you automatically begin to enjoy the activities and conversation with the kids. They are very smart. They can sense it and will be in love with your company.

2. Respect children

We have somehow come to associate the word respect with older people only. Children are as human as we are and have similar need to get respect from others. When we give someone respect, we listen to what they are saying and value it. Exactly like adults, this is what kids want. To be heard and valued.

3. Act funny

Kids love fun and funny activities, whether it is playing peek-a-boo or hearing sounds that they find funny and can giggle at. Children love to be with those people who have fun with them. Learn a few things that you can use to win favors from kids, like making funny noises or faces, playing hide and seek or producing something that they like all of a sudden in front of them. You will feel the kids absolutely love you!

4. Don’t overdo your display of affection

Sometimes, we overkill. We go out of the way to please kids or show our affection. That puts off the kids. They are good judges of your actions and attitude. Do show affection but don’t overdo it.  Occasionally, it is good to let kids be. They will love you for the space that you give to them.

5. Be patient

Just like adults, every kid is different. If we try to interact with them in the same manner or rush them into a conversation, we are bound to be disliked by them. If you want to make kids love you, be careful and patient with every kid. They will become frank with you at their own pace and when they do, trust me, you will enjoy it to the fullest.

6. Don’t try to discipline children all the time:

Who doesn’t like kids with good manners? Every one of us wants kids to be be well-behaved and have great manners. However, this does not mean at all that we try to discipline them all the time. Kids love to be mischievous, roam around, run and play. They will absolutely love you if you give them the margin of being kids.

7. Shower children with compliments

Exactly like adults, kids love to be praised. Whether you appreciate their looks, manners or clothes, they will adore you for it. Of course, you should try to be genuine. Otherwise, kids can always gauge your real feelings. They will love you even more if you praise something that they also like, for instance, a cartoon character on their shoes or t-shirt, their bag adorned with a cartoon or their bottle that is an all time favorite.

8. Take them seriously

The things that kids love might be small or insignificant for you but to them, they are the whole world. When kids try to tell you something or want you to show something, take it very seriously. We think that kids wouldn’t mind us taking them lightly but no, it is not the case. You can instantly win their love and attention by paying attention to their small belongings.

9. Act like a kid yourself

There’s nothing more that kids would worship. Children like the company of other children but that doesn’t mean an adult can’t act like one. Discover your inner child and see the spark of love in the eyes of other kids.

10. Give them presents

Last but not the least; it is a great way to gain a kid’s favor. Obviously, I do not mean to suggest that you always shower the kids with gifts but they get happy with little things like a tiny toy or a favorite sweet. Giving them gifts will make you very likable and they will love you for it.

10 Powerful Ways to Stop Worrying and Start Living Today

10 Powerful Ways to Stop Worrying and Start Living Today

Plato knew that the body and mind are intimately linked. And in the late 1800s, the Mayo brothers, famous physicians, estimated that over half of all hospital beds are filled with people suffering from frustration, anxiety, worry and despair. Causes of worry are everywhere, in our relationships and our jobs, so it’s key we find ways to take charge of the stress.

In his classic book How to Stop Worrying and Start Living, Dale Carnegie offers tools to ditch excessive worrying that help you make a worry-free environment for your private and professional life.

These are the top 10 tips to grab worry by the horns and wrestle it to the ground:

1. Make Your Decision and Never Look Back

Have you ever made a decision in life only to second-guess it afterwards? Of course you have! It’s hard not to wonder whether you’ve done the right thing and whether there might still be time to take another path.

But keep this in mind: you’ve already made your decision, so act decisively on it and dismiss all your anxiety about it.

Don’t stop to hesitate, to reconsider, or to retrace your steps. Once you’ve chosen a course of action, stick to it and never waver.

2. Live for Today, Package Things up in “Day-Tight Compartments”

You know that feeling: tossing, turning and worrying over something that happened or something that might, well into the wee hours. To avoid this pointless worrying, you need “day-tight compartments”. Much as a ship has different watertight compartments, your own “day-tight” ones are a way to limit your attention to the present day.

The rule is simple: whatever happened in the past or might happen in the future must not intrude upon today. Everything else has to wait its turn for tomorrow’s box or stay stuck in the past.

3. Embrace the Worst-Case Scenario and Strategize to Offset It

If you’re worried about something, ask yourself: “What’s the worst thing that could happen?” Could you lose your job? Be jailed? Get killed?

Whatever the “worst” might be, it’s probably not so world-ending. You could probably even bounce back from it!

If, for example, you lose your job, you could always find another. Once you accept the worst-case scenario and get thinking about contingency plans, you’ll feel calmer.

4. Put a Lid on Your Worrying

Sometimes we stress endlessly about negative experiences when just walking away from them would serve us far better.

To make squashing that worry easier, try this strategy, straight from stock traders: it’s called the “stop-loss” order, where shares are bought at a certain price, and then their price development is observed. If things go badly and the share price hits a certain point, they are sold off immediately. This stops the loss from increasing further.

In the same manner, you can put a stop-loss order on things that cause you stress and grief.

5. Fake It ‘Til You Make It – Happiness, That Is

We can’t directly influence how we feel, but we can nudge ourselves to change through how we think and act.

If you’re feeling sad or low, slap a big grin on your face and whistle a chipper tune. You’ll find it impossible to be blue when acting cheerful. But you don’t necessarily need to act outwardly happy; you can simply think happier thoughts instead.

Marcus Aurelius summed it up aptly:

“Our life is what our thoughts make it.”

6. Give for the Joy of Giving

When we perform acts of kindness, we often do so with the expectation of gratitude. But harboring such expectations will probably leave you disappointed.

One person well aware of this fact was the lawyer Samuel Leibowitz. Over the course of his career, Leibowitz saved 78 people from going to the electric chair. Guess how many thanked him? None.

So stop expecting gratitude when you’re kind to someone. Instead, take joy from the act yourself.

7. Dump Envy – Enjoy Being Uniquely You

Your genes are completely unique. Even if someone had the same parents as you, the likelihood of someone identical to you being born is just one in 300,000 billion.

Despite this amazing fact, many of us long to be someone else, thinking the grass is greener on the other side of the fence. But living your life this way is pointless. Embrace your uniqueness and get comfortable with who you really are: How to Be True to Yourself and Live the Life You Want

8. Haters Will Hate — It Just Means You’re Doing It Right

When you’re criticized, it often means you’re accomplishing something noteworthy. In fact, let’s take it a step further and consider this: the more you’re criticized, the more influential and important a person you likely are.

So the next time somebody talks you down, don’t let it get to you. Take it as a compliment!

9. Chill Out! Learn to Rest Before You Get Tired

Scientists agree that emotions are the most common cause of fatigue. And it works the other way around, too: fatigue produces more worries and negative emotions.

It should be clear, therefore, that you’ve got to relax regularly before you feel tired. Otherwise, worries and fatigue will accumulate on top of each other.

It’s impossible to worry when you are relaxed, and regular rest helps you maintain your ability to work effectively.

10. Get Organized and Enjoy Your Work

There are few greater sources of misery in life than having to work, day in, day out, in a job you despise. It would make sense then that you shouldn’t pick a job you hate, or even just dislike doing.

But say you already have a job. How can you make it more enjoyable and worry-free? One way is to stay organized: a desk full of unanswered mails and memos is sure to breed worries.
