Bed Throws Sale - Blankets and throws were practically created for spending some time with children. They enable you to summary your kids after a bath, 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 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 advantages for them and for you personally? Here are a few reasons that having children close is a good idea.
Just hugging your kids does a ton. Cuddling along with a fuzzy blanket reduces stress and anxiety, slows your heart rate and puts you in an excellent mood. The surprise? Those effects are as much for you personally as for your children. Physical contact along with affection makes babies, toddlers and school-age kids feel safe, secure and loved.
Another advantage of snuggling with children for a little is that it helps them to sleep better. If you provide them with a bath before bed, the consequence is even stronger. Basically, as their body warms back up – thanks to a toasty blanket and your skin layer – their body realizes that it's time to shut down for the night. Even babies often sleep longer in this way.
If fact, some researchers claim that cuddling babies literally makes teething hurt less for them. The calming sensation of one's touch helps them to relax. It promotes bonding between parents and their newborn too. One important note: wrapping babies up in a blanket is perfect for when you're cradling them in your arms, but most pediatricians recommended having newborns sleep with only a fitted crib sheet for safety reasons.
Reading with children before bedtime is another favorite family occasion. Not surprisingly, it also offers a lot of benefits for your kids. It promotes both mental and emotional development, because they hear your voice, the affection you have for them, the sound of laughter and the manner in which you express different emotions in the reading. It's also a great chance for some one-on-one time where children feel comfortable opening up.
At what age can you begin reading to your kids? Anytime you want. In fact, many studies claim 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 story at night. Hearing you read – and eventually getting in on the action themselves – stimulates intelligence, creativity, imagination, listening skills and helps many kids to truly have a longer attention span. Plus, it gives them to be able to practice reading in a zero-pressure environment.
Another wonderful time for families to be together are at 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 may also be a huge aid in getting kids round the table on a very good day. Why eat together? For something, it makes your kids feel very comfortable being around you; they look forward to it! They can't wait to inform you about their dreams, or ask you for help with something.
What can you talk about? Anything at all. Kids love to ask questions, and often say issues that allow you to laugh too. One suggestion is to help keep things as positive as possible. This way you are able to concentrate on encouraging them, inspiring them and teaching them. To your kids, you're their hero.
This close relationship is a gift that keeps on giving, both for parents and children. Some studies claim that eating together as a family group when they're young causes it to be more likely for teenagers to open as much as their parents about peer pressure or request advice. Moms and dads also treasure every moment spent using their kids because they grow up.
