Keeping calm with your kids is something that is close to my heart and I am sure to other parents watching this hangout. Trying to stay calm when caught in middle of tantrum or a cross child that is shouting can be very difficult and quite often we can find ourselves shouting at them and not with them.
In our hangout today, I discuss with Beckie Whitehouse of BeConfident.org ways of dealing with your angered child, how to recognise when trouble might be brewing and steps on trying to dissolve the situation.
We hope you can sit quietly with a cuppa and have a few minutes to watch our video. Here are some of the other topics that we covered.
Other topics covered are:
- Advice on how to stop the anger in you brewing
- Taking yourself out of situation
- Talking to your child about how to control their anger
- Heading off the situation before it gets too far
It’s not easy being a parent, and even though we are parents we are also humans and sometimes we need a bit of advice and help ourselves. Our parenting hangout tips try and do just that so we hope that they are as useful to you as they are to us.
Other topics that you may find of interest are:
- Anger – spotting the triggers
- What do your kids do that scare you?
- Children arguing – how to deal with answering back
