How to be a Patient Parent
Researchers have proved that out of all the parenting skills the most important skill is being a patient parent. If you are not patient enough to deal with your child, remember that you were dragging your child to grow up with bad habits. Everybody understands that dealing with children is not easy, and we need to develop the patience when become a mother or the father. Supposing both of you go to work, and you hire a nanny, and later on, you find out that your nanny doesn't have enough patience you will find her immediately as you think that your child will be hurt. Therefore, it applies to all of us especially for the parents as you do not want your child to get hurt. Therefore, I will give you some tips as to how to be patient with your child.
How to be Calm when you talk to your child in a way they can understand
Supposing you are feeding your toddler, but your toddler is refusing to eat and throwing all the food on the floor. What will you do at that point? You as a mum will sing a song and try and turn the attention of the toddler and make him eat the food. In the same way, if your preschool child wants to do something that you don't agree, try and talk to him/her in such a way they wish to listen to you. Here again, you have to use your patience when trying to communicate with your child.
Have Patience and Give them space to understand things.
I am sure when your child is doing something wrong, you should not jump in and try to stop. Firstly, you need to calm yourself, and after relaxing for few minutes, start the subject slowly and explain it to him/her. It makes child realise and accept his wrong doings and in the long your child will learn your way of dealings things as if he/she gets attacked by someone in school. So, what they learn at will be taken outside in their lives.
Do not force your expectations on them
I know all of us want our children to behave well in our home, when we go out and at school. But, we cannot force our expectations on them, one, they will not be happy with it and the other, we are making them talk back to us. Of course, the parent needs to be strict with the children but impose it as a rule. We have to go along with them and put them on the correct path slowly without allowing them to go on forever in the ways they like to do things. For anything and everything, we need time to put things right.
How to be a good parent and Keep you cool and calm
When an incident place in your home around your children, and you feel irritable about it, do not react immediately, and if you respond quickly, you will lose control of the situation. The anger needs control before even you say a word to your children other you are teaching them to react back in an awkward way. If we expect our children to have a peaceful and happy life, they should learn it from us.
When we go out to work, we meet all types of people and some individuals will annoy you. Are we reacting to them immediately? We will not show any reaction, and we will sit back and think how can I deal with this as this cannot because it can happen again. Why can't we train ourselves to deal with our loved ones the same way, that will give us a peaceful and happy life? Living a quiet life will help you and your children to do well in life.
