How well versed are you with your kids' feelings? For me, As a Dad who's time is roughly not enough to be with the kids because of work, made me think if I really know my kids especially when they are happy. I know there are no instruments to measure the gauge of happiness of a child but I'm pretty much sure that there are indications that we, parents, can see and feel whenever our kids are happy.
Based on my experience and whenever I'm around with my kids, I somewhat noticed this few things from them. I think these are good indications that they are happy.
- Their eyes are glowing.
- They are energized.
- They are smiling a lot.
Enjoy the bonding and keep on smiling!
