Great question! Here are some ideas.
Give them a gift.
Gifts don’t have to be special. It can be a mug, breakfast in IHOP, or just some peace and quiet. A friendly conversation with your parents is a great idea too, because it pleases them to let you know you think of them as friends.
Spend more time outdoors.
Encourage your mom or dad to spend time outdoors in this warm weather. Sunlight often spreads joy, studies say. Convince them to start a barbecue party in the summer, that might just brighten your day and theirs too.
Show them your smile.
Smiling is contagious! Show off your pearly whites and help them know their child is happy. Be a good kid, so your parents can stay pleased.
