How to Make Parents Very Happy


When we were young, we'd look out at the audience during school plays, hoping to see our parents' proud, smiling faces. Although their expectations have changed since then, it's still easy to make parents happy. Follow these steps to ensure you're on the right path.

  • Tell your parents, "Thank you." Parents can feel unappreciated and taken advantage of when you fail to show gratitude for the things they do for you. Acknowledge their effort, make them a sweet card or simply give them a bear hug from time to time.

  • Communicate with them openly, honestly and often. Discuss your feelings, friends, boy or girlfriend, peer pressure, schoolwork or your plans for Saturday night. Keep them apprised of the events in your life so they won't have to worry about what you're thinking or doing.

  • Follow the rules of the house. Get in before curfew, finish your work before going out and always be completely honest. You'll have far less disagreements if they know you're responsible and trustworthy.

  • Listen respectfully when your parents talk to you. Take their advice to heart, complete requests quickly and even ask how their day went. Keep your eyes off the television and remove the stereo headphones from your ears to give them your undivided attention.

  • Try your hardest at everything you do, whether it's school, work, sports or even household chores. Even if you don't come home with perfect grades or don't make the varsity squad, for example, they won't be disappointed if they're sure you put in your best effort.

  • Do your chores without a reminder. Nagging you to take out the trash or straighten your room can put your mom on edge. Consistently complete your tasks and offer to help with theirs when you can.

  • Hang out with your parents whenever possible. Although it's great for them to have time alone together, they'll be happy to know you enjoy seeing movies, having leisurely dinners or walking around the mall with them.
