Have your kids gotten to the stage where they have the form of jokes but there is no humor at all? Or are they still at the stage where they say or do the cutest, funny things in the cutest, funny ways? Or are they old enough that they can make insightful, clever observations that are spot on?
Sharing those moments over time has built your child’s funny bone. Modeling and teaching real fun is an important part of your parenting. The effects lightheartedness, positivity, and humor contribute to lifelong balance and happiness and mental health.
Good on you – you got carried away with the sillies, the nonsensical joke, the absurd situation, whatever, and it overflowed with a healing, hilarious overflow of shared laughter. Remember it; it’s priceless.
