15 Bits Of Advice From A Pediatrician To Help Discipline Your Children
There was a time when raising a child was not so hard. They were completely dependent on their parents till they are around 18 but now times have changed. Parents don’t have that much authority on their children anymore and kids can earn for themselves these days even at a young age.
So, it’s safe to say that raising a child has changed drastically. But thanks to the Internet and helpful pediatricians, parents can easily learn helpful tips and tricks that make raising their child a breeze.
1For the ages between 1-2
Children at this age can be a handful to take care of and handle. They are not at a stage to understand things properly. This is known as the toddler strange and they like to explore the world around them. Naturally, this leads them to make mistakes and breaking things. This is a crucial age to learn how to handle children as what you say or do to them can affect them for the rest of their lives.
2What not to say
At this age, you shouldn’t yell at them as they are too young to understand what they did wrong and can misinterpret your anger. You need to calmly explain to them what they should and should not do. This way you will show them what they should and should not do in a more peaceful way.
3What you should say
When a child at this age makes a mistake you need to sit down with them and tell them what they did wrong. We’re not saying to not raise your voice if needed but don’t make the child be afraid of you. You need to explain to them slowly and carefully as to what they did that was wrong which will make them be more careful in the future.
4For the ages between 2-5
At this age, the child is still a toddler but with a bit more understanding. This is also the age where the child will act quite stubborn and will throw temper tantrums. This is the age where they have the ability to understand what is going on around them but also the childlike wants and needs.
5Things you should say
Like we said before, they will be stubborn and throw temper tantrums so you need to counter it with a calm and peaceful demeanor. You cannot get angry or annoyed and shout at them. This will be counterproductive. You should not get frustrated and yell at them which will naturally make them cry.
