The greatest legacy we can give our children is not money or property, but beautiful memories of childhood.
As parents we try to ensure our children’s future happiness by building assets like property, business, bank-balance for their inheritance. But besides these, we need to give kids a legacy of great memories which become a lifelong source of happiness and strength. Here are some ways to make beautiful memories.
Spend time with your children
However busy you may be, make spending time together as a family one of your top priorities.
Make every moment count
Long or short, your time with your kids must be quality time where they are the exclusive focus of your attention. So, watching TV together doesn’t count.
Make bedtime special
Sharing the day’s happenings, warm hugs, lots of cuddling, stories, all these will be treasured by your children when they grow up.
Play games with them
Ludo, carom, card games, football, volley-ball, cricket, teach them how to play and how to deal with winning and losing. You’ll be surprised at the fun you have.
Have spontaneous fun
Splash in a puddle, dance in the rain with them, build sand castles, go on unplanned outings. Let your children have great memories of their childhood.
