The ability to think optimistically begins to be taught from an early age. Medical Park Elazığ Hospital and Turkey Medicals member Psychologist, who states that the ability to think optimistically is important for happiness, says that this skill is taught at an early age, so parents have important tasks.

According to Expert Clinical Psychologist, who emphasizes that raising happy children is the common wish of all parents, a “happy child” can be defined as follows: “We can call children who enjoy life, can distract themselves, are sensitive to events and living beings around them, have good communication with friends, can empathize, express their feelings and thoughts correctly, succeed in human relationships, do not collapse in ups and downs, create alternatives to pessimistic thoughts and interpret events correctly. In addition, happy children have motivation to try again because they do not generalize failures, but only make them specific to that situation. This situation allows them to be successful both in their social and academic lives. In this way, they can reflect their talents to their lives and use them actively.”

Noting that the ability to think optimistically is taught from an early age, Expert Clinical Psychologist says that a happy childhood starts from a comfortable and peaceful pregnancy and extends to adolescence. According to Başa, it is possible to list the tricks of raising happy children as follows:

– It is necessary to establish a secure bond with the child from the moment he is born: when you take him on your lap, make eye contact and talk with a smile, that bond begins to be established. By holding you a lot, you can also show your love physically.

– The easiest way to make babies or children happy is to play games with it. The game does not need to have a purpose. The important thing is to have a pleasant time together. Actively participating in the game makes it easier for your child to perceive the outside world, expands the world of imagination and allows him to discharge his energy to the right place. If you teach winning and losing through games in a family environment where he feels safe, you can increase the child’s resistance to ups and downs in daily life.

– Giving children the chance to choose appropriate subjects for their age will support self-confidence. • You can make sure that the compliments you make to him are timely.

– You can create alternatives to the pessimistic comments he makes in the face of events.

– You can teach forgiveness and forgiveness in the face of mistakes made.

– By avoiding generalizations when criticizing your child, you can only make a specific comment on that situation or behavior.

– Only obligations or responsibilities (assignments, courses, etc.) when you share the time.) without spending money with enjoyable organizations special to you (enjoying the cinema at home, cooking together, fishing, going on expeditions in the city, etc.) you can.
