When you don’t take everything you do so seriously, your kids won’t either as they grow up. If you think back on some of your life moments that weren’t so fun at the time, you probably can laugh at them now.
We all have bad days, and when your child has had a bad day, sometimes a good laugh can make it better. Try to find the humor in situations whenever possible since laughter releases endorphins, the feel-good chemicals in your brain.
It can be hard to relate to your child at times. However, when you can find something in common to laugh at, you will become closer.
Try using humor to help with family struggles, make your kids laugh while enforcing the rules, and provide positive life lessons to show your kids that a positive attitude can make difficult situations a little easier.
