A child likes to command: how to solve a problem

It may be difficult for you to believe that your child wants you to go up the career ladder. Representatives of prestigious professions (lawyers, businessmen, company leaders, etc.) have one thing in common: their children love to command.

Do you remember how parents in childhood gave you everything you wanted? You didn’t even need to say a word, but only to show what you wanted – and your parents immediately brought it to you. If you didn’t like something, you grumbled displeasedly, and your parents eliminated what annoyed you. Most likely, this was not the case in your childhood, but this is often the case with modern children.

On the other hand, pay attention to how you behave with other adults. You are not inferior if someone is trying to take your place in traffic. You can sometimes keep silent in a dispute with the head or teacher of your child in kindergarten, but in general you behave confidently and with dignity.

However, everything changes when your child begins to command. Continue reading

Preparing your child for a brother or sister

A second pregnancy for young mothers can be as exciting and exciting as the first. You have probably already learned how to cope well with some things: changing diapers, feeding a baby, reassuring him when he cries, as well as caring for him when he is sick. However, now you will face new challenges, for example, to prepare the child for the appearance of a brother or sister. The first few months after the birth of the baby can turn out to be very difficult, because now you need to take care of two children at once. First of all, you take care of the newborn, but do not forget that the older child has its own needs and anxieties. When you first tell your child that he will soon have a brother or sister, you may encounter a lot of emotions – from joy to complete hostility. It’s funny, but in some cases, the child may not show any emotional reaction at all. But even in this case, do not worry. Children love the established order of things, and the advent of a new child brings changes to their normal lives. Adults also need time to get used to something new. It is not surprising that young children do not immediately get used to changes in the family.

Fear-Based Parental Mistakes

Parents forbade something to many of us in childhood. Sometimes we heard the word “no” too often.

But years later, when we have our own children, we begin to understand our parents. Raising children is not an easy task. Parents can be good-natured and love their children indefinitely, but out of a sense of fear they use the wrong patterns of behavior. Try not to resort to such behaviors in dealing with children.

1. Excessive custody. Worrying news and phobias keep many parents at bay. However, life goes on. When fear controls our actions, it negates our good intentions. Anxiety for the child turns into control, looking after him into supervision, and protection into excessive custody. Sometimes, due to excessive custody, parents are tempted not to let the child out of the house, but this only suppresses him. If you do not allow your child to play on the court with other children, go to birthdays, etc., he will not be able to develop the communication skills that he needs. Let your child communicate with peers. Continue reading
