For this week's post, we will focus on reliable tips in handling children wherever you might be to help you breeze through stuck-up situations that often leads to a crying child or to a child throwing a tantrum. So to prevent these situations to surface, below are some brief and simple points one must always keep in mind:
Remember that routines are important. It is greatly beneficial to be consistent on the activities you let your little one do each day. This will help them recognize that there is a time to do something and it would make them easier to handle and their actions easy to read.
Be ready to have a snack in hand at all times. Giving your little one a snack as a reward for doing well gets by most of the time in diverse situations. But more importantly because your little one is almost always hungry, a snack to munch on will keep his/her hunger at bay as well as prevent them from becoming too cranky due to hunger. Going the extra mile on this to ensure a healthy snack for your little on is preparing them personally each time. This way you can be sure that each snack is packed with the nutrients your child needs.
Pack your child’s favorite teddy or blanky. As there are some children that tend to be cranky when sleepy, being prepared with their favorite toy will make the fuzziness less and sleep to visit them easily.
You need to have patience and be well rested. Having to handle a cranky little one will be too much of a burden if you personally haven’t had enough rest to begin with. Which is why, it is almost a golden rule to all parents to sleep when your child is asleep so that you’ll have enough strength to play and spend time with them when they are wide awake and ready to explore their surroundings. A great amount of patience is also needed when dealing with children to ensure their safety and personal growth. Not to mention the fact that each of these times spent together is a bonding moment for both child and parent in the process.
Be an example to your child/ren. This might sound strange but your kids always looks at you as the model of most of their behaviors. As they are not old enough to know how everything works out in life, parents are the ones they look up to in understanding life each day. Seeing your reactions and practices will help in molding his/her character and personality either consciously or unconsciously. So, if you want a good obedient child, be obedient as well. Not only will it reap positive actions towards your children, it also gives you the opportunity to pass kindness to others as well.
