Children love to play and be in the center of other people’s attention but there are times when they get depressed and start to cry or just stay in a corner without talking to anyone. These are times when we need to cheer up our kids a little, there are some useful ways to do this…

Usually a little rabbit or a puppy should do the trick, they are the funniest of all because they resemble very much to cartoon characters. Having an animal is also beneficial for the kid’s spirit and mood.

One of the most cheering up events in a family home is constructing a tent, everyone knows that a kid would be absolutely thrilled about the idea. Take a blanket and put it over an empty table and let an opening, then tell your angel to bring his toys and get them inside. You will keep him busy for hours this way.

Put your baby in the bath tub with lots of floating toys like ducks and ships and fill the water with bubbles of soap. Your little angel could stay there and have lots of fun for many hours, if the water temperature is maintained.
Children are bombarded with all types of emotions, some of them still unknown for them, being sad it’s part of their maturing process, so we must let them express their feelings but not until they reach the extreme, if they are depressed we must act and cheer them up. Or instead we must be opened for talk, to encourage them. Actually, weren’t we like them in the past?
