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.

5 Fixes For Common Sleep Issues All Couples Deal With

5 Fixes For Common Sleep Issues All Couples Deal With

Sleeping next to your partner can be a satisfying experience and is typically seen as the mark of a stable, healthy home life. However, many more people struggle to share a bed with their partner than typically let on. Sleeping beside someone can decrease your sleep quality which negatively affects your life. Maybe you are light sleepers and you wake each other up throughout the night. Maybe one has a loud snoring habit that’s keeping the other awake. Maybe one is always crawling into bed in the early hours of the morning while the other likes to go to bed at 10 p.m.

You don’t have to feel ashamed of finding it difficult to sleep with your partner and you also don’t have to give up entirely on it. Common problems can be addressed with simple solutions such as an additional pillow. Here are five fixes for common sleep issues that couples deal with.

1. Use a bigger mattress to sleep through movement

It can be difficult to sleep through your partner’s tossing and turning all night, particularly if they have to get in and out of bed. Waking up multiple times in one night can leave you frustrated and exhausted. The solution may be a switch to a bigger mattress or a mattress that minimizes movement.

Look for a mattress that allows enough space so that your partner can move around without impacting you or consider a mattress made for two sleepers like the Sleep Number bed.[1] This bed allows each person to choose their own firmness level. It also minimizes any disturbances their partner might feel. A foam mattress like the kind featured in advertisements where someone jumps on a bed with an unspilled glass of wine will help minimize the impact of your partner’s movements.[2]

2. Communicate about scheduling conflicts

If one of you is a night owl and the other an early riser, bedtime can become a source of conflict. It’s hard for a light sleeper to be jostled by their partner coming to bed four hours after them. Talk to your partner about negotiating some compromises. If you’re finding it difficult to agree on a bedtime, negotiate with your partner. Don’t come to bed before or after a certain time, giving the early bird a chance to fully fall asleep before the other comes in. Consider giving the night owl an eye mask to allow them to stay in bed while their partner gets up to start the day.

3. Don’t bring your technology to bed

If one partner likes bringing devices to bed and the other partner doesn’t, there’s very little compromise to be found. Science is pretty unanimous on the fact that screens can cause harm to a healthy sleeper. Both partners should agree on a time to keep technology out of the bedroom or turn screens off. This will prevent both partners from having their sleep interrupted and can help you power down after a long day.

4. White noise and changing positions can silence snoring

A snoring partner can be one of the most difficult things to sleep through. Snoring tends to be position-specific so many doctors recommend switching positions to stop the snoring. Rather than sleeping on your back doctors recommend turning onto your side. Changing positions can cut down on noise and breathing difficulties for any snorer. Using a white noise fan, or sound machine can also help soften the impact of loud snoring and keep both partners undisturbed.

5. Use two blankets if one’s a blanket hog

If you’ve got a blanket hog in your bed don’t fight it, get another blanket. This solution fixes any issues between two partners and their comforter. There’s no rule that you have to sleep under the same blanket. Separate covers can also cut down on tossing and turning making it a multi-useful adaptation.

Rather than giving up entirely on sharing a bed with your partner, try one of these techniques to improve your sleeping habits. Sleeping in separate beds can be a normal part of a healthy home life, but compromise can go a long way toward creating harmony in a shared bed.
