What do you do when your little one seems a bit down in the dumps? Saying, 'Cheer up', 'Stop being so moody', etc. certainly doesn't help. With little ones, its best to do something to lift the mood. Here are a few tips for getting little ones to perk up! You'll probably find you all end up having fun!
Make an observation and give out a bit of praise. Get them to do a picture and say how great it is. Praise them for something good they have done. It can work wonders.
Wash away the bad mood - if its sunny go outside and using a hose or a spray or a watering can, wash away the moodiness. Have a giggle while you wash and use some bubbles too!
Simply ask what's wrong - if they can tell you try and get them to explain why they seem unhappy. See if it's something you can help with.
Go for a run around the park or garden - Scoop your child up, put on some trainers and head off for a windy walk and a run in the park. Or go out in the garden for a wild run around, some chasing, a bit of high spirited screaming and giggling. It will do you all the world of good!
Think of things - ... that you love, that you like doing, that you like playing. Act them out, have a laugh as you try and enjoy yourselves. You will see the mood lifting!
Put on some music - dance your troubles away! Have a boogie and have some fun!
