In 2020, the world has witnessed a drastic change in every aspect of our life. The pandemic has changed the perception towards our relationship with family, friends, office and outer world. During this crisis, the children are the most difficult mind to read on and understand. Most of the modern parents are working from home and their kids are busy with video games or online classes. They have a limited connection with their buddies or school mates.
In this situation, most of the kids are sad or frustrated over anything. Sometimes they react badly towards the normal conversations. As their life has been changed in a way, it is difficult for them to accept this. It is high time to stay close to your kids and watch out for the deeper meaning when they are reacting before it gets too complicated to handle.
Discipline can fix this. But first, you need to clear out the idea of discipline. Punishing your kid for not completing the chores within time is not the way to follow the discipline. It is all about to explain to your kid to behave appropriately and acknowledge their improvement. Thus your kid will motivate to learn more and behave well. You need to teach how to socialize as a kid. The kid needs to learn about the functioning as a member of the family, what does it actually mean to be a part of society and a family.
This learning process includes the process of communication, to inhibit impulses, to tolerate frustrations over each conversant or meeting. Along with that, it helps to build up the ability of productively addressing unpleasant feelings. By the time, kids will learn to repair their relationships, when they hurt others with their actions.
The word Discipline often drafted as the negative connotation, but it is all about to help the kids to learn the internalized rules that will heal their impulsive nature. Also, parents must learn how to react positively when they are interacting with their kids. Cause it affects the kid steadily, and they learned that firmly for the future projection as well. For the kids, parents are the role models to learn and develop their skills as the beginner.
Negative responses like yelling, screaming or spanking could affect the kid for a long time and soon they will learn to take these as granted. They will lose interest to listen to you or follow your guidance as well. So, when you are reacting over anything then try to behave well in front of your kid to get the positive behaviour in a reflex order.
Little comments or appreciation can lighten up the world of kids. They always get affectionate towards positive feedback. Thus, they will try to improve their behaviour. Parents must communicate with their kids as a consultant than a manager, who always instructs them to do this and that.
It is very much normal that as a parent you have such behavioural expectations from your kid. But you need to be clear about that. You need to communicate when they are not behaving properly. You need to dig up the real reason behind that particular behaviour. So, if they are reacting at such pace, then you need to say that you can tell me if I’m doing something wrong to you or whatever. But you can’t yell or talk to me by calling my name, or when you feel ok to talk with me about this, and then we will resume the conversation. For now, we can pause here.
