Below I show you some concepts that you should take into account and you can adapt to your daily routine in order to achieve that desired happiness and that your child’s childhood is the best.
Have time to play
When you are a child it is necessary for parents to establish priorities in a clear way and one of the most important is school, but it is also necessary to take into account recreational and playful moments where children can express their emotions and relax so that they can continue to give their best. It is necessary that as a parent you get involved in the way of playing and that you continuously play with the little one so that they have a fun and didactic parenting moment.
In this part, you have to take into account the limits and the schedules because when you are small it is necessary to create a routine. When they are young, it is necessary to create a routine, which they can continue to establish schedules for each of their activities. It will also give them the security to know what the next activity is going to be. It is also necessary to focus on tolerance to frustration if at any time things do not go as they should.
Setting constructive limits for babies and children and saying “no” to the baby or child in the face of certain attitudes is necessary to set the limits needed for proper psycho-emotional development.

Expressing your emotions
For the personal development of each child, it is necessary to take into account each one of his emotions and that he can keep in mind that it is natural and healthy to be able to express each one of them and not to repress them, since, in the long run, it can bring great consequences. The little one must know how to channel each one of his feelings, to be able to identify and name all of them. This will give him a better clarity of his emotions and greater stability.
It is necessary that as the child grows, responsibilities are assigned according to his age. This is to promote the understanding of the term and create some independence. It is necessary that as parents you make a routine where the assigned responsibilities are fulfilled in order to make the process easier and create more continuity.
Expressing love to them
Sometimes what children need is to feel valued and loved in a direct way, with phrases like: “I love you” or “I am very proud of you”. These will help to create better self-esteem for the child and at the same time to be able to establish a much more solid channel of affection and communication.
