As your child grows, they will definitely appreciate that you’re praising them for the good things they do. This teaches them to be grateful and appreciative of everyone.
Don’t shout or scream at them
One important thing to avoid is shouting or screaming at your child. Children can sometimes have tantrums, or moments where they really don’t want to calm down or be disciplined.
As a parent, this can be very frustrating, especially if you’re tired because of work or because you were taking care of your family. However, you should remember that your child is not yet in full control of their emotions.
Children are prone to emotional outbursts because they don’t know the best way to express their feelings. So to deal with it, you should try and avoid shouting or screaming, as this just makes things worse, and can even cause your child to feel upset.
If you feel angry or frustrated, take a few moments to calm down before going back to your child. Always talk to them calmly, firmly, and respectfully whenever you’re trying to discipline them. This helps children to calm down and follow orders, and models proper emotion coaching from parents.
Lastly, It is important to be understanding. Children are not always aware of the consequences of their actions. Additionally, children don’t disobey their parents out of spite, or because they are just “bad”.
