Sometimes children can be exhausting. Their never-ending tantrum, meaningless demands, sibling rivalry, sometimes it becomes too much for a parent to handle. Other times we lose our calm. Every parent reading this might be nodding their head. But if you take a pause and think for a minute one would realise that most of the times it’s not needed because we as parents need to realise, what children are like, they are supposed to be naughty and a little grumpy, it’s not only your child whose acting all angry and undisciplined each child out there is very much the same.
Take their perspective
Sometimes seeing with other eyes gives a completely different angle, seeing with their perspective might give us an overview of what they are feeling.
Sometimes due to our parental ego, we refuse to listen, all we want is to prove them wrong. Sometimes listens to their viewpoint can make things easier.
Losing your calm is not the only solution
Losing your calm can be your last option but not your first there are several other options of disciplining your child like like no videogames, no television, or making them understand where they went wrong.
Let them ask questions
Sometimes when your child asks questions or breaks in between we feel as if they are questioning us or back talking but we need to realize that sometimes asking questions putting their viewpoints and considering their opinions are also very necessary.
Be a friend
Always try to be their friends, because as parents we expect so much from our child which they might not be able to reach, sometimes we become judgemental, but as friends, we might understand them better and might even join in their grumpiness.
So always losing your calm may not be the right absolution and not a good option because not only your mood is negatively affected but your child’s mood as well. So next time, whenever you feel losing your cal, just take a pause.
