Whether you have kids of your own and love spending time with them and their friends or not, we’re sure you all agree that they always enjoy some jokes that will bring a smile and some laughter. And even if you don’t have the opportunity to spend that much time with children, if you took part in carpools, volunteering at school or and coaching youth sports, you would soon see how much joy there is.
If you want to establish a good relationship with kids and want them to think of you as a fun grown-up to spend time with, cracking a few jokes, laughing, giving a high five, or plain being silly are often the right way to go. Not only are jokes, obviously, a great way to create positive atmosphere and make children laugh, but they can also come in handy when you want to keep a kid occupied, for instance, while waiting in line at a restaurant, or waiting for dentist appointment, which might be particularly challenging a time to keep any child occupied. If you, for any reason, find it hard to remember many jokes suitable for kids, you can always reach for your phone and store at least some of the best ones there, to keep them for quick retrieval, just in case.

All in all, always always do your best to make your children laugh and enjoy the jokes yourself. Even if kids’ jokes don’t make much sense at times, that still makes them funny, don’t you think? You can, perhaps, start some kind of tradition of telling jokes at particular time of the day, say, after dinner. Or add riddles if you find those more amusing. Whatever you pick, the important thing is that you and your children laugh and have some fun.
