This is a very important reminder that sometimes we have bad days, but our littles ones don't understand that yet. You have to learn how to be strong and manage yourself around your kiddos so that you give them a safe environment. Good luck ❤
Ever find yourself saying “stop whining,” but it doesn’t seem to help?! 😅😅
Consider these options:
💕 affirm the emotion behind the whining
🍎 teach or remind them HOW to ask kindly
😜 use humor - did the pleases get lost?!
💯 affirm that it’s ok to speak up + asking kindly will be more effective
Instead of “stop whining” sometimes it’s helpful to affirm what’s behind the emotion - “this is important to you” or “you feel frustrated.” This helps them to identify their own emotions and acknowledges their feelings.
We can also teach our kids to ask for what they want in more positive ways. “Use your strong voice” or “say help please” helps kids learn what TO DO and HOW to share what they need - rather than focusing on what not to do.
Finally, teach kids that their message can get lost in how they’re delivering it. When we speak with kindness, people are more likely to hear, understand, and work with us. Great life lesson. 💯💯
Did you know that boredom can help your child build important skills?
When a child feels bored, they need to motivate themselves to push through the moment, they need to be creative to think about how to fill this boredom (which is why it is great to refrain from offering screen time when you can).
Boredom, as an adult, is what can lead to us feeling disengaged from work, or not keeping up with a habit like an exercise schedule. We naturally seek out novelty since this is exciting and feel rewarding.
However, when we build our tolerance to boredom, we find ways to internally motivate ourselves. Swipe these images to learn about a study that looked at students and their tolerance to boredom!
🌱A note about neurodivergent children:
As you know, I have been keeping this in mind now when offering advice. I found a study that suggested these children might struggle a lot more with boredom and actually seek out more risk or sensory-seeking behaviors. If your child does this and it makes it more challenging for you, you can work on internal motivation during different activities like at the park.
The way we, as parents and teachers, respond to our children’s emotions (particularly the negative ones) has everything to do with the child’s subsequent EQ level.
✅ When we help our children expand emotional awareness, they can better manage their own feelings and impulses.
