You’re a fairly new mom. You’re done with the more difficult part of motherhood of sleepless nights, changing diapers every few hours, and making sure your little one is not putting inedible things in his mouth.
Your child’s growing up years are crucial in terms of molding his character. This is the time when your little one learns to absorb his environment, starts to engage with the people and things around him, and understands his place in the world.
And as they discover their passions in life, they’ll need all the support you can give to help them realize their dreams and be the best they can be. So how can you, as his mom and perpetual guide in life, help him reach his fullest potential and nourish his “every possible” today?
Expose your child to new experiences.
There is nothing that opens perspective and creates understanding more than experiencing new things. Take your little one to the zoo, to your workplace, to the beach or up the mountains. Encourage him to meet people from all walks of life. Boost his curiosity to try different kinds of food from different cultures and places. Let him take it all in and he will understand how to look at things differently and more openly.
Create an environment open for learning.
Now this doesn’t mean that you leave your little one alone or let him do whatever he wants. It means giving him space to make mistakes and just guiding him with the lessons he learns along the way. For him, it’s in the little things that he learns independence—tying his shoes on his own, putting away toys after he’s done playing with them, or talking to new friends in daycare.
As your little one starts to recognize his possibles, he will slowly gain confidence in what he is capable of doing. And he will bring this understanding with him when he grows up and pursue his own passions in life.
Teach the value of kindness.
In a world where you cannot completely shelter your child from cruelty and hatred, teach him to be kind. Because while knowledge and the ways of the world can be learned and studied, kindness should be well-ingrained within a person’s character. While he is still young, he can start to learn how to share his snacks, how to speak to his teachers and classmates, and how to be nice even to those who are unkind. These are the building blocks that your little one will use as his foundation when he fully develops his own character.
Be a worthy example.
Your little one will always look up to you for guidance and wisdom, and to be able to do become the proper role model, you have to live what you preach. Do you want him to become independent and kind? You have to show him that you are. Do you want him to reach his full potential? You have to show him that you are trying to reach yours. Your child will learn from your life and how you are living it.
While he is still young, you can already teach him the value of investing early. And there is no better way to prepare him for the future than to show him that you are investing your time and attention to make sure he grows up to become the best person he can be.
