In a world practically run by modern technology, it becomes all too easy to identify the differences between the childhoods of one generation and that of another. For people who grew up in the 90s for example, childhood was a mix of early game consoles and outdoor fun. Rescuing the Super Mario princess and then climbing the neighbor’s tree is a great moment. I have a lot of friends who are worried about how their little daughter spends so much time on the iPad instead of going out to play.
If you have the same dilemma, here are some items you can get for him so he can really make the most of his childhood.
It’s probably safe to say that, next to a pony (or maybe a unicorn), a dollhouse is every little girl’s dream toy. What, with tiny furniture and cute wallpapers, who doesn’t love that? This one isn’t just charming; it’s one of those toys that allows a child to be imaginative. While the adults see nothing but a little girl trying to fit a mismatched rag doll into the tiny house, a colorful adventure story actually takes place in the player’s mind at just the right moment.
He probably had a lot of this when he was a baby and it sure helped him learn his alphabet. When she grows into a little school girl, make sure that she does not lose her literary hobby. Of course, you can download fairy tales to your tablet. But don’t let her miss the joy of turning the pages and touching the glitter on real book covers. A child with good reading habits will certainly be more creative and innovative.
Have you seen videos on Youtube with babies and puppies playing together? Isn’t that just adorable? This doesn’t mean you have to give your daughter a puppy just for posting a similar video. However it will give you an idea of how pets and children can get along. Dogs are known for being loyal companions, which means your little girl will have a definite companion growing up. Assign him to do feeding and trick training. Giving him a puppy will definitely teach him how to be more responsible too.
You had one before, right? While most of us might not be all that open about it, it’s true that a lot of girls grow up keeping diaries. Diaries are a great way to express yourself and are great at developing one’s writing skills. Encourage your daughter to keep a diary so she can document and never forget the fun things that happened throughout the day. Reading the pages of his journal will also allow him to relate the lessons he has learned along the way.
Remember how you used to draw hearts or write your name using different pen colors? I am willing! Don’t let your daughter miss this simple happiness! Buy her a collection of pens that she can use for her diary or scrapbook (if she has those too). You can also order a special pen for him to make it even more special. Like brand National Pen offer personalized pen products; choose one that is sure to suit your daughter’s personality. This kind of school supplies will encourage him to be less dependent on technology and take advantage of the deep thinking within. Any item useful for arts and crafts would also be great at boosting his creative skills.
