Kids are ever curious and have a hundred thousand questions. Even if they don’t have anything specific to ask you, they will just talk about anything and everything under the sun.
Tips for parents : Don’t Stop them , but encourage them to rattle off.

- Kids do not like us spending time on electronic gadgets
They absolutely hate it when we are busy whatsapping or watching cricket or commenting on facebook. Either they must use the gadgets or we must shut them down.
Tips for parents : Use the kids’ sleeping hours to get on to social media or watch your favourite show on the TV.
- Kids try to push off sleep time
Kids hate sleep-time. Yeah, as it precious hours wasted instead of playing. Once the clock approaches bed time, kids will stay away from you and the bedroom as long as they can.
Tips for parents : Tire the kids out by letting them play physically and tuck them up with a full dinner. They will doze off on their own.
- Kids like us to treat them as grown-ups

Involve them in decisions that you take for the family.

A house that has kids in it will be full of toys and other odd stuffs spread around the house. Kids always want every toy out even if they are not playing with it.
