Raising children is no easy feat. Once a baby comes into your life, your world is turned upside down. Though child-rearing isn’t always easy, every single step of the way makes the tough journey worth it.
When you’re a child in the Royal family, life might be a bit different for you.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have made it their mission to ensure their children, George, Charlotte, and Louis, grow up as joyful, thriving individuals.
William and Kate have made it abundantly clear that they want nothing more than to see their little ones get to experience childhood to the fullest. Their method might seem a bit unorthodox to some, but it works wonders for them.
When the weather is warm and sunny, they highly encourage outdoor playtime. But, when the weather turns blustery cold, their decision doesn’t change. Their kids are encouraged to go out and, no matter the season.
Some might disagree with allowing children to endure cold outdoor temperatures, but William has a very good reason as to why they allow it in their family.
While at an official reception to celebrate the ties of Britain and Sweden, Prince William made a comment that has stuck with many, telling his reasoning behind his parenting decision:
“One lesson that we will take home with us is that children are actively encouraged to spend time outdoors, whatever the weather. This is obviously very good for their physical health, but as we learned this morning at the remarkable Karolinska Institute, it has huge benefits for a child’s mental health as well.”
The health, happiness, and overall wellbeing are at the forefront of their parenting. It’s obvious in the way they love and encourage their little ones.
What do you think about this? Do you agree with this parenting idea?
