Learn why having a bit of parenting humour is good for relationship building.

Having a bit of parenting humour is a great character trait to have. Due to the fact we live in a fast paced and stressful society, there must be a bit of laughter to help us unwind. Also young children always enjoy a bit of playtime and laughter, so using a bit of humour would make it more enjoyable.

We all know that life can be very serious at times. however life should be an adventure with fun and this is where your parenting humour comes in. From experiences my wife and I have, is that during family time when there is lots of fun and laughter, our children tends to open up and speak on any issues.

Research has shown that when people eat together and enjoy each other company, it creates a special bond allowing them to have a more fulfilling life. For some emotional reason when we experience happy times, it stays with us as wonderful memories we reminisce on.

Mastering the art of parenting with positive thinking enable us to use our intuition to create a win win situation for our children and us. Our job as parents is to let our children know that they can have a laugh with us and make practical jokes with us knowing fully well we will enjoy the moment.

Another positive benefit of developing a humorous relationship with our children, especially our teenagers, is that they will be able to see us as their friends in which they can relate to, as oppose to parents having authority over them. However be a responsible parent and know when it is time to be a friend and when it is time to be a parent. Remember “there is a time and place for everything under the sun”.

Having great parenting humour goes a long way, even for your own sanity. Laughter is known to have therapeutic value, so at the end of the day don’t be too tough on yourself. Life will always happen, unexpected issues will popup, but in time a solution will be found.

I just love quotations, don’t you? They say so much in so little words, here is one for you “ You can turn painful situations around through laughter. If you can find humour in anything, even poverty , you can survive it.”- Bill Cosby.
