When I spill milk, food, colors on the floor, my parents don’t rush to chide me and spank me but tell me it is wrong and then allow me to play and have fun too. Many times dad joined me when playing with spilled water, food and all this is a part of growing me. So let your children behave like a child too 🙂
You all know that kids have to be like kids all the time. So you cannot expect me to behave like an adult, with controlled emotions, not playing tantrums, being calm, silent, well behaved. I mean I can do that for sometime as I am learning but I cannot do that all the time. Childhood is about being a child and fun. So next time you find yourself chiding a child for being a child, watch out!
Childhood should be about fun. Actually even being an adult should be about having fun. The definition of fun might vary but the idea shouldn’t. While you can teach me to behave in what is an acceptable behavior or living skills, I like to be on my own and have fun sometime. Mom lets me draw and paint as I want most of the times while she teaches me to paint in a particular way too.
