An Android developer, who uses a different name, has taken to the app store to share tips and tricks on how to make children happier and more active.
Read moreThe tips are not exactly a new one, but the Android developer who created them told Australian Financial review that he had been using them since he was a child.
“I remember having my first child when I was 15 years old, and my mother would put us to bed at about 3am, and I would go to sleep at about 7am.
So I would always wake up at about 6am and she’d put us out of bed at 6pm, and then I’d have my kids at 5pm and they’d be up by 4:30pm,” the developer said.”
So I think I started using these habits at around age five or six, and they became quite ingrained.”
He added that his tips included eating a healthy diet and doing exercise, and even being aware of how much time they spent outside in the sun.
“But the main thing is, really, just being mindful of what time of day it is, how many kids you have, and what activities you do,” he said.
When he started to explore the app and share his tips, he said he was surprised by how effective they were.
“People are very quick to jump on the bandwagon when something seems to be effective,” he told the website.
“And they tend to believe it’s just the advice of some celebrity doctor, so it’s all good and good, but if it works for you, it’s not because it’s from some celebrity, it might be because it works really well for me.”
The developer added that he thought his tips could be useful for anyone who was worried about the impact their parenting style had on their children, but also those who were trying to achieve a happier childhood.
“It can help you with that, and it can be really helpful in terms of making sure that your kids are happy and are doing activities that they love,” he explained.
The developer’s app, which he has been using for several months, has since received a lot more attention from users.”
If they see this app, they might say, ‘Well, I’ve just seen this app and I think it might help.'”

While it is not the first time a developer has shared tips on how children can be happier, it is the first to offer real-life examples.
The tips include eating a nutritious diet, spending more time outside, doing exercise and taking your child to the park.
“You need to look at the people around you, and look at your kids and know how they are doing and then you can figure out how to get your children into the best position they can be,” he added.
“As you get more parents around you who are like, ‘You know what?
I can teach you this’, you can start to think that this is what your kids need to do and this is how they should be doing it.”
While many of the tips may sound obvious, it takes a special kind of child to be able to apply them.
“When you get into preschool and then go to preschool again, you will start to notice things in the children that you don’t know before,” he pointed out.
“They will be able start to have conversations and they will start being more independent, and you will see them interacting with other kids more and more.”
While it may not be obvious at first, he added that parents can also try to get their kids into activities that are fun and encourage social interaction.
“If your kids can do a lot, it means that there are more opportunities for you to be involved in the activities they like,” he suggested.
