My niece is my baby from another mother. She is so dear to me! If you have a niece or a nephew whom you love more than anything else in the world, here are some ways in which you can develop an unbreakable bond with them:
1) Be a child with them again.
Yes, be a child with your niece or nephew if you want them to love you back. Kids love to play and have someone who can do things as per their wish. So be that for your little love. I love spending time with my niece Vihana. We play games, discuss Makeup (she’s just like me she’s obsessed too), have tea from her kitchen set, and eat together. In return, what I get is pure love and unconditional kisses!
2) Don’t hurt them and keep your promises.
Remember kids never forget promises and they take it personally if someone breaks a promise. If you can’t fulfil a promise, please don’t promise anything. They are very sensitive and have impressionable minds. So don’t break their trust because it isn’t cool to make a promise and later forget about it.
3) Make them feel special.
I call my niece often (video/voice call) to make her feel special and show how much I love her. Keep the relationship going on even when they are grown up.
4) Pamper them.
Gifting is the best gesture to shower your love on your niece/nephew. Whenever I used to meet my niece, I used to make sure I take something for her. I believe gifts should be age-appropriate thoughtful gifts like games, books, funky accessories, school stationery. As expensive gifts are not the way to win their hearts.
5) Encourage them.
Every child is super talented and they have hobbies, which should be nurtured well in time. Encourage them and support them as you have a great power to mould their personality and interests. Rather than buying expensive smartphones or other gadgets, gift them experiences or activities from which they can learn.
6) Be a Good Role Model.
Your little one will look up to you. He/she will consider you as a role model and the coolest company to be with. So be punctual, dress appropriate, Respect elders because they learn from you. Be a good influence on them.
It is amazing to be with kids. I enjoy spending time with my niece and watching her smile makes my day. If you have cool kids in your family whom you adore, make the most of your time with them by making memories. Take selfies, play music and dance, and just enjoy! These wonderful memories will make your relationship stronger!
