Just have fun with your child! Operate and move from the right brain rather than being logical from the left brain. Be spontaneous, mad, crazy etc., and you will have the best time of your life. Jump, dance, play, run and do all the crazy things you would like to but are afraid, or shy, of doing because we have been conditioned to believe that ‘It looks mad’, ‘It does not look good’ or ‘What will people say?’ This is what I have to say to this: let people say what they want to say; slowly, you will find that they are all following you!
Just think: you go on using all these magical words, and what is it doing to you as a person? Yes, it is bringing about a beautiful change in you: your child is telling you, ‘Daddy, Mummy, don’t be too serious in your life; liven up your life with some joy, enthusiasm, excitement and drama; Daddy, add some fun in your life; Daddy, be like me, a child, and let’s have fun together, let’s play together’.
The child is actually parenting you. Unfortunately, most of us parents forget that the child is constantly there for us as our guide. We, instead, try to teach, dictating to him how to be and how not to be, forgetting that, in reality, it is not we who is the teacher but he, training us, teaching us. He is constantly reminding us to be a child once again!
