It is necessary for you to induce calm and patience in your character.
To have a strong and healthy relationship with your child, it’s important that you control your temper issues whenever possible.
Becoming a parent is one of the most wonderful feelings in the world. But with this new role comes huge responsibilities and sometimes it can turn “too much to handle”. This results in, us losing our temper over our children and later we end up regretting it. Not only it creates a negative effect on the children but also affects our relationship with them. Thus, to have a strong and healthy relationship with your child, it’s important that you control your temper issues whenever possible. Here are some tips:
Child’s Point of View: Now that you are a parent, it is important for you to consider other perspectives as well before taking any action. Most of the time, due to daily stress we often ignore our child’s point of view and end up shouting at them.
At an early age, they crave attention, and when you brush them away due to your work, they feel ignored. Try to listen and understand them. Spend some quality time watching movies or playing in the garden with them. It will strengthen your relationship with your child.
Be Calm & Patient: It is necessary for you to induce calm and patience in your character. If you will remain restless then the responsibilities will feel like a burden on you. Try meditation and yoga. Being calm and patient also helps you in enjoying the process of parenting.
Teach instead of yelling: Children do make mistakes but try not to yell at them. Rather teach them about the mistakes they did. The difference between right and wrong should be explained politely than blaming or shouting at them. At a very young age, children tend to do things without understanding the distinction between fair and unfair. And if you lose your temper over this, then your child might develop some fear for you.
Avoid a repeat: It’s understandable that sometimes we lose our temper and end up shouting at our child. But try not to repeat it. Constant scolding of your child can have drastic effects on your kid. Think back, to what you could’ve done to avoid it. Practice calmness and patience.
Get Yourself a Time-out: It is highly important for you to take care of yourself. Sometimes, handling work and parenting can take a huge toll on your mental health. It’s necessary that you give time to yourself so that the responsibilities don’t burden you. Oftentimes, we lose our temper because we overexert ourselves and our children become targets of our loose selves. So, take some time out for yourself. Watch your favourite movies, go for walks in the parks, and have a holiday for yourself to remain positive and energised.
