Toys are the lifeline of any kid. Once they have liked you and have started loving you for your playfulness, the immediate next thing they are most likely to do is to show you their toys. Fancy cars, robots, play stations, dolls, teddies and what not? Do show interest in all that, because once you show equal interest and enthusiasm towards their toys, they feel they have got someone whom they can rely upon. With most children having working parents, they are left with their toys that make up for a large part of their world. So when they are showing you their toys, they are introducing you to a part of their little world. Respect that folks.

7. Do not Shout at them

Kids are very sensitive. Their heart is as soft as their skin and everything they see leaves an imprint on their heart. So be very careful of your temper when you are around them. Do NOT shout at them. That will not at all serve your purpose of being good to them. There are better and more effective ways of dealing with kids and make them understand the difference between right and wrong. Be nice to them, they will love you and once they love you, they will blindly follow whatever you tell them, such submissive are their hearts.

8. Take them Out

Kids these days have become so glued to the idiot box and their play stations that they hardly get the time to go out. Be a responsible senior, take them out to the nearby park or playground. We, as kids, spent the better part of our childhood playing out with friends after coming home from school, on holidays, on long vacations. We feel it is our utmost responsibility to make kids of this generation understands the importance of sports. Well, kids obviously cannot foresee the goodness of our initiative to take them out. They will just enjoy the time outside those boring four walls of their room. Be regular on this one and the kid will love you for that.

9. Stories, Good Ones

Stories are a great way to tame kids. Remember those days when we were young and used to run to our grandparents and how they never fell short to amaze us with their never ending stock of stories? Time to clear up those long accumulated stock to the next generation. Kids love stories and totally adore the story tellers. You tell an interesting story to a kid, he or she immediately leaves all other ‘important’ work and cuddles up to you. You know that kid has developed an instant liking towards you. Now that’s how you roll it!

10. Chocolates, chocolates

Even we elders melt down like wax at the mere mention of ‘chocolate’, they are kids man! You can control any kid, even the monstrous kids with this wonder creation of mankind. In fact, chocolate is the first step of friendship you can offer to a child. The moment he accepts it and smiles that oh-so-innocent smile, we know it’s the beginning of a wonderful bonding and you know on the inside, you can make this monster sit quietly anytime with this piece of magic you just gave to him or her.
