How To Build Habits With Your Hearth Display

Instilling good habits in children from an early age is crucial in helping them grow into responsible adults. It's not just about brushing their teeth or making their beds; it's about creating a framework that supports their physical, mental, and emotional health.

And Hearth can help. Our Routines feature was created with the purpose of prioritizing routines for kids. Choose from one of our expert-informed options or build your own from scratch.

According to a study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, children who engage in regular habits at home display higher levels of emotional self-regulation and lower levels of psychological difficulties. This includes fewer behavioral problems and lower levels of emotional distress.

The home is the first environment where children can learn and develop habits. It becomes a safe space for them to experiment with different activities and routines. They learn the importance of regularity, discipline, and time management. And your Hearth Display becomes the hub for these integral lessons.

Habits such as regular meal times, bedtime routines, and chores help children develop a sense of responsibility and autonomy. According to a report by the American Academy of Pediatrics, children who engage in chores are more likely to become successful adults. Get your kids involved with mealtime by adding a routine step like “Tidy the table” or “Help Dad make lunches.”

A study in The Lancet Child & Adolescent Health journal found that children who spend less than two hours a day on recreational screen time, get sufficient sleep, and engage in physical activity have better cognitive outcomes. Emphasize the importance of getting outside by building it into your everyday routine. Try adding “Family walk” to our kids’ bedtime routine on your Hearth Display for a moment of connection and some fresh air.

Habits formed at home play a significant role in a child's development. They not only instill a sense of discipline and responsibility but also contribute to their overall wellbeing. As parents, it’s our responsibility to create a conducive environment that promotes the formation of these good habits. With Hearth Display, you’re not left on your own to navigate the important and sometimes complicated world of routine building. Our Routines feature was built by parents, with parents and kids in mind.
