A good way to encourage children to be happy is by teaching them to have a more positive encouraging important values such as kindness and empathy.
We invite you to use a simple tool to open your children awareness (although we do not always remember it or know how to see it) of the gifts that life gives us every day, things that we need to value.
For this, you only need a jar, paper and a pen.
This technique consists of writing and putting inside the jar something good that happened during the day. At the end of each month, open the jar as a family and read out loud each paper. They will realize that a lot of good things happened.
Among the main benefits of this activity, we find:
- Children manage to have a more positive meaning in life. How many good things happen to us every day!
- They learn to value the good in life, which is a lot and we don’t always know how to appreciate it.
- This game teaches us to value the little things that also make us happy, a hug, something delicious to eat, a thank you, a smile …
- It allows us to have a nice time with the family. This will create good memories that will hold great value throughout life.
