If there is one thing children love its humour – mum or dad joking around making them laugh. Humour is an amazing way to bond and communicate with your child and if used well it can diffuse a situation or make it much less serious. If you have the choice of getting angry and possibly shouting at your child humour is much better option.
I was discussing humour the other day with some girlfriends and when I think of it I also use it to get my children out of a bad mood and use it when they or I make mistakes or have a silly accident.
When do you use it and do you use it often enough?
