The truth is, it’s not getting everything material that makes children happy. In fact, children who are spoiled early on are likely to grow into difficult and disillusioned teens – according to studies.
Instead of spoiling your children with material things, teach them how to be happy.
The good news is that when it comes to gauging toddler’s happiness, it’s a very simple thing. Toddlers don’t hide their feelings at all. So if your child is smiling, playing, and exhibiting curiosity about people and things, then he’s probably happy. If he’s withdrawn, quiet, and not interesting in basic things, like food, then there’s a good chance there’s something wrong.
Instead of showering your toddler with toys and other things, spend more time with them. Play games, take trips to interesting places, read stories, and sing songs. You are the thing that makes your child the happiest, so make sure that he or she gets plenty of love and attention from you, and you should have a happy, well-adjusted toddler.
