Be Patient When Handling Young Kids
Dealing with your child at this age can be very frustrating as he may not be on his best behavior 24x7. It is very easy for you to lose your mind and let your anger come in the way of handling your little one. But what you need to remember at that point is that you need to hold your breath and calm down. Because patience really is everything at this stage.
1. As your child chooses his own way of dealing with emotions, you need to know that you cannot do the same. You cannot treat him as you would treat anyone else when they go wrong because your child is really not at fault, but he is unaware of a lot of things. Empathize with this and never let your anger get the better of you.
2. Keep cool and calm when your child is throwing a tantrum. He may not be able to control his emotions at all, which is why he is lashing out. This cannot be the case with you as well because you are an adult and you are in control of how you feel. Talk to your child and find out why he is feeling angry or upset.
3. Be patient when your child is trying to do something. He may take more time than he should, but understand the temperament of your child. He will do it at his own speed, which is completely alright. You need not worry about it.
4. Always remember to show how much he means to you. This is positive reinforcement and nothing works better than this to correct his bad behavior.
