Psychologists at Harvard have been hard at work studying the best things a parent can do to raise children to be ethical, kind and genuinely good people. Their findings? According to the researchers at the prestigious school, it's the general love and guidance of a parent that is the fundamental basis of raising a 'good' child.


After reviewing the resulting tips from Harvard's study, these suggestions seem like no-brainers. However, that doesn't make the researchers findings less legitimate or useful. Check out their top tips for yourself!


1) Give Your Kids A Lot Of Love
This may seem obvious, but its importance remains. What better way to teach kids to be loving, kind and empathetic than to show them how good it feels. Treat others the way you want to be treated has never been so appropriate.

According to the study, receiving a parent's love and affection makes kids that much more likely to form an attachment to their parents, which influences them to be more open to accepting and understanding of parents values and lessons.

2) Set A Good Example

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery after all, and what child doesn’t try to act like their parents? Teach your kids good character by showing them what good character looks like.

According to the researchers: “It‘s also important for us to recognize what might be getting in the way of our own caring.”

3) Let Them Interact With Others
In the park or in the classroom, it’s important to put kids in situations where they can interact with one another and understand how to show caring and kindness. "Studies show that people who engage in the habit of expressing gratitude are more likely to be helpful, generous, compassionate and forgiving,” the report states. “They’re also more likely to be happy and healthy.”

4) Help Them Understand Their Emotions
Feelings can make any person act uncharacteristically, and kids are no different. It’s key to teach kids how to handle negative emotions like anger or envy. “Children need our help learning to cope with feelings in productive ways,” the researchers concluded.

5) Solve Problems, Don't Ignore Them
The researchers suggest to "try to achieve mutual understanding — listening to and paraphrasing each other’s feelings until both people feel understood." They don't want to do the dishes? Have them ask themselves, "why not?" Chances are it's because it's boring or tedious, in which case a dishes dance party is the answer!

Most parents want their kids to be more independent. This means your little ones wake up, brush their teeth, get dressed for school, and don’t mix up their left and right shoes — and the main thing here is that they do it all by themselves without any help. It’s a parent’s dream come true, right?

These are some smart parenting hacks that will hopefully teach children how to become more independent. We couldn’t wait any longer and invited this adorable young man to our office to check if these tricks really worked. By the way, ice cream, bubbles, and lots of love and attention served as the foundation of our friendship, so no children were harmed during the testing process.


1. The Bubble Solution (click on the picture for bigger pop up image)

Every parent has faced this problem at least once. On the one hand, your kid gets excited about catching the bubbles. On the other hand, he wants to hold the container with the soapy liquid and blow the bubbles himself. Pretty challenging task for one little guy, don’t you think? As a result, the spilled bubble solution makes the floor very slippery and leaves your child upset about the whole thing. Try this simple trick: stick the container to the chair using some tape. This way your kid will get his new cool no-spill bubble tumbler to play with.

2. How to prevent those ice cream stains. (click on the picture for bigger pop up image)
Ice cream won’t ruin your child’s clothes if you use a cupcake case as a popsicle drip-catcher.

3. How not to mix up the keys.
If you trust your child with the keys, try this trick. Paint them in different colors, and your kid will easily memorize which key opens which door

4. How to use the right amount of toilet paper
Colorful "stop" arrows will tell your kid how much paper they need. You can easily get any sticker from book store. 5. How to get them to brush their teeth for two minutes

5. Toothbrushing to 2 minutes
It’s difficult for children, and sometimes even for grown-ups, to know if they’ve spent enough time brushing their teeth. An hourglass, set for 2-3 minutes, is a perfect solution for you and your child. Another smart idea is to find a children’s song that lasts for at least 2 minutes, and turn it on every time your kid brushes their teeth.
