BLANKETS & THROWS
Bamboo Blanket Single Bed - Blankets and throws were practically designed for spending some time with children. They let you summary the kids after a tub, before tucking them set for bed or while reading a favorite story together. Boys and girls alike giggle in delight snug as a bug. At Pottery Barn Kids, we all know simply how much you treasure those intimate moments together with your children. That's why we make our blankets and throws extremely soft. Did you know that quality time with kids has health benefits for them and for you personally? Here are a few reasons that having children close is a great idea.
Just hugging the kids does a ton. Cuddling together with a fuzzy blanket reduces stress and anxiety, slows your heartrate and puts you in a great mood. The surprise? Those effects are just as much for you personally for your children. Physical contact coupled with affection makes babies, toddlers and school-age kids feel safe, secure and loved.
Another advantageous asset of snuggling with children for a little is so it helps them to sleep better. If you provide them with a tub before bed, the effect is even stronger. Basically, as their body warms back up – because of a toasty blanket and the skin – their body realizes that it's time to turn off for the night. Even babies tend to sleep longer in this way.
If fact, some researchers declare that cuddling babies literally makes teething hurt less for them. The calming sensation of your touch helps them to relax. It promotes bonding between parents and their newborn too. One important note: wrapping babies up in an umbrella is great for when you're cradling them in your arms, but many pediatricians recommended having newborns sleep with only a fixed crib sheet for safety reasons.
Reading with children before bedtime is another favorite family occasion. And in addition, it also offers lots of benefits for the kids. It promotes both mental and emotional development, while they hear your voice, the affection you've for them, the sound of laughter and the way you express different emotions in the reading. Additionally it is a good opportunity for some one-on-one time where children feel comfortable opening up.
At what age can you start reading to the kids? Anytime you want. Actually, many studies declare that babies learn to identify your voice and detect emotions before they're even born. Preschool and school-age children receive extra benefits from sharing a tale at night. Hearing you read – and eventually getting into on the action themselves – stimulates intelligence, creativity, imagination, listening skills and helps many kids to have a longer attention span. Plus, it provides them to be able to practice reading in a zero-pressure environment.
Another wonderful time for families to be together reaches the breakfast table. Here, blankets and throws play a particular part, and a lot more if it's cold outside. A fuzzy rug and slippers are also a large assist in getting kids across the table on a very good day. Why eat together? For one thing, it makes your young ones feel very comfortable being around you; they enjoy it! They can't wait to inform you about their dreams, or ask you for assistance with something.
What can you speak about? Anything at all. Kids like to ask questions, and often say items that allow you to laugh too. One suggestion is to keep things as positive as possible. Like that you are able to concentrate on encouraging them, inspiring them and teaching them. To the kids, you're their hero.
This close relationship is just a gift that keeps on giving, both for parents and children. Some studies declare that eating together as a household when they're young causes it to be more likely for teenagers to open around their parents about peer pressure or request advice. Moms and dads also treasure every moment spent using their kids while they grow up.
