Of course, your kids still need to have a strong parent to help teach them right from wrong, dangerous and safe as well as good and bad but there should also be fun in your child parent relations too. Children tend to drown out negative comments, if they occur too often. Kids are more apt to listen to their parents if they can actually enjoy spending time with them.
Parenting kids is easier if you let yourself have fun and enjoy spending time with them
Remember, there are no cell phones, laptops or handheld video games while camping. Older parents might want to use an air mattress while younger ones might want to ârough itâ by sleeping on the ground. The choice is yours as long as you spend the time together, all will be great!
Sometimes, it becomes near-to-impossible task for the parents to convince their child to sleep in their own beds. Eventually the battle concludes with children sharing bedroom space with their parents.
According to the National Sleep Foundation (NSF), âas many as 24% of parents have their children sleep in their beds for at least part of the night.â
While this child behavior invades the privacy of parents, it also leaves working couples restless and fatigued. Toddlers, preschoolers, or even school-goers across the world importune to sleep in their parentsâ bedrooms.
Realize that how you think of yourself is just a thought-habit. Â
Thought is creative, though, meaning that you become more and more like the person you think of yourself as being.
Therefore, begin relating with your thoughts more strategically.
Instead of automatically identifying with the thoughts you think about yourself, consider if the thought represents the kind of person you really want to be.
When you think of yourself as inadequate or disappointing in any way, your creative thought-power works against you.
Self-defeating, counter-productive thought patterns are habitual, so it takes time to weaken and finally lose the habit of thinking negatively about ourselves.
Each time you catch yourself thinking a demoralizing thought about yourself, remember that you are not the person you think of yourself as being.Â This can help you to let go of that thought.
Another practice that can help you free yourself from self-esteem issues, and protect your child from low self-esteem as well, involves spending some time daily thinking about the strengths and abilities that you want to demonstrate.
Close your eyes and try to visualize yourself expressing true greatness.Â This exercise âharnessesâ the creative power of thought to give birth to your greater potential.
This exercise in creative positive thought forming will be undermined, though, if you do not diligently practice noticing what you think of yourself when you think of yourself.Â Otherwise, your habitual, unconscious, negative self-concept will diminish the power of your efforts to liberate yourself.
The sooner you let go of counter-productive thoughts of yourself, the more quickly you liberate the greater self you can be.Â And the more you pass on that wonderful condition of healthy self-esteem to your child.
Imagining yourself as strong, capable, intelligent, loving, happy, healthy and talented not only helps you to fulfill your great potential, it will help your child do the same.
The first lessons begin at home, from parents, by observing and following people who are in the immediate environment.
âVictory isnât defined by wins or losses. It is defined by effort. If you can truthfully say, âI did the best I could, I gave everything I had,â then youâre a winner.â â Wolfgang Schadler
Hence, parents need to be doubly careful when raising children on what kind of a home environment they are providing their children.
Does your child display anger and agitation at public places? Check out this useful advice on parenting!
(Editor’s Note: This is a guest blog by Noah Brown,a prolific freelance writer who writes extensively on advice for parents, child behavior and parent child relationship issues.)
Do not train a child to learn by force or harshness; but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each. ~ Plato
Anyone who has ever witnessed poor child behavior in a public place automatically looks at the parents as if they simply allow the child to run amuck and do whatever he pleases. In many cases, parents find it difficult to correct a misbehaving child without yelling or hitting.
Most working parents leave raising their child up to a daycare, babysitters, and nannies or even to the teachers at school. The truth is that there is no person in the world who can raise your kid better than you.
If you have to go off to work to support your family, rules must be set for the kids as well as their caretakers. By following this parenting advice, you will not only see a great improvement in child behavior but also grow stronger and closer child parent relationships.
Those Terrible Tantrums
One of the most nerve wracking child behavior problems that a parent must endure is tantrums. A lot of people think that tantrums are a normal part of child development but they are wrong. Kids throw temper tantrums to get what they want and to control their parents.
It is essential that you find a solution and get expert parenting advice to improve this child behavior immediately. You should calmly and quietly inform the children that if they do not stop misbehaving, they will go into time out or lose other privileges such as their favorite TV show or a special toy.
If the child behavior does not improve, follow through with the time out or sanctions. It enables you to teach the child that you are the authority figure. He will learn to respect you and eventually the child parent relationships grow stronger.
Don’t Feed the Finicky
Children use to dominate the dinner menu by refusing to eat what is on the table. Many parents, especially working parents who lack good parenting skills simply give in and whip up chicken nuggets or macaroni and cheese rather than teaching the kids to eat the meal that has been prepared for the family. You must put your foot down and make them eat their meals.
Should they choose not to eat, send them to bed and wrap the meal for the following day. The child will learn to eat what is available. Knowing that you won’t back down will show the child that you mean business and he will learn to obey you.
Handling Homework Troubles
Nearly every grade school kid tries to avoid doing their homework. This is a common child behavior however; it must be corrected as your child’s education is of the utmost importance. It’s best to set aside a specific time for getting homework completed. Your child might tell you that he has no homework and expect to go out to play. This should never happen.
When a child tells their parents they don’t have homework, the parents need to realize that they may or may not be telling the truth. The scheduled time for homework should always be utilized for education. If there is no homework on a given day, the child should spend the time studying or preparing themselves for the next lesson.
Working parents should hold fast to this schedule as making time to meet with teachers can be difficult as well as problematic for your employer. Once the child understands that this time is always dedicated to his studies, their homework will never be undone, according to child behavior counselors.
Showing the child you are concerned about his education is a very important element of good parenting and an effective technique for inspiring children.
2âŚ Provide the child with influences that help the child display the positive child conduct you want.
If all we focus on is getting the child to change WITHOUT changing the childâs environment, our efforts will be undermined by the disturbing environmental that led to the childâs behavior problem.
For instance, if your child withdraws from other kids, choosing to spend her time alone, that child may have received excessive criticism in her home environment, eroding her self-confidence.
Sometimes there is something happening at home that causes the child to feel ashamed.
There may be someone in the childâs home environment modeling a similar pattern of sensitivity that drives that person toward solitude and unsociability.
As long as the negative environmental factors remain unchanged, child discipline problems are likely to continue reflecting them.
In my own parent counseling practice I have often found that the parent help needed for improving how kids behave involves guiding parents in how to bring more order, calmness, attentiveness, positive modeling and love into the childâs environment.
