33 Tips for Raising Happy Kids - shared by AAA State of Play

Terrific tips — a bit heavy on the play, but who doesn’t like to play? The tip that jumped out at me is one I struggle with all the time as a single parent: prioritizing my own happiness. It’s an easy concept to grasp intellectually, but not so easy to remember when I — and other parents (because it’s a common issue) — am straining to fill every role, patch every boo-boo, and work myself ragged making everyone else happy. Kids notice when we’re stressed or not taking care of ourselves. And I certainly don’t want my daughter picking up this bad habit.

Happiness, our own that is, should be at the top of the list. Let the joy flow from there! Great reminder.

What tip(s) stood out for you?
