Patience is a virtue, today were going to discuss how to learn patience with your children. The first rule that should be implemented for every parent should be patience. There are so many impatient people in today's society that parents don't even teach their kids what patience is.
If you are an impatient adult already, it will only get worse when you have children. But, there is a way that we can change your thinking on the patience aspect of things so you can learn to not only be more patient with your child but also a lot more understanding.
The first thing that you as a parent need to take into aspect is your child is simply that. They are children; everything that you do is what teaches them. Do not jump the gun when your child is being rowdy or simply just wants your attention. Put on a straight face and talk to your child. The greatest way to develop patience is through communication. People sometimes underestimate the mind capacity of a child. But, when you treat a child like a person which they are you will get better results.
If an adult was to try your patience, you would not scream and yell at them right? So why would you put something that you love so much through that? The best thing to do if you feel like your getting close to your breaking point is to take a few deep breaths and move on. You would not know how great it feels to just inhale and exhale a few short times instead of getting angry, this also helps you in gaining a sense of control for your present situation.
If your patience is still being tried, put yourself on a time out. No we are not saying put your head in a corner or anything like that. Simply walk away from the episode that is causing your patience to run dry. Take a few minutes to recoup and you will be power mom or dad all over again.
Remember, your child relies on you to teach them what's right and wrong. If you can't handle your own short switch, how are you going to control your child?
