HOW TO HANDLE THE TANTRUMS OF KIDS πŸ™ƒπŸ™ƒ

The synonym of toddler is tantrum πŸ€—. The tantrums played by these little monkeys are beyond control sometimes or I must say most of the time.

But tantrums are normal part of the child development and we as parents should know how to handle them with ease. Tantrums are the way to show they are upset and uncomfortable and they need something. So how we can stop these outbursts. Everytime we cannot fulfill their demands to make them happy.

Here comes the magic trick- the counting trick.

So what I follow is counting trick 1 to 20. And it's not like I count to ease my anger, it's a counting for the transition phase.

For instance when I take my daughter to park and after spending good time when I ask her to leave for home she starts playing tantrums like want to play more or want to go to friends house. At this time I use this trick. So I tell her I will count till 20 and we will change to other activity which is walking and going home. In this way she gets time as she demanded and also know to end the current activity quickly.

Many times she say count to 25 mumma and I do so. It helps.

At bedtime when she is fussy and don't want to sleep I do this and start counting and she quickly jumps to bed.

This takes time but once your kids understand, this trick really starts working.

Try, it may help you also.

SIMPLE WAY TO GET YOUR CHILDREN OPEN ABOUT THEIR DAY AT SCHOOL

My daughter recently started her formal school. For the first few months, it was impossible to get my daughter open up about her school. Hundred times I used to ask her the same question "How was your day" but all in vain. Why these little babies don't want to share their life easily, which we as parents urge to know. Poor us :(

I know that my baby is happy and enjoying her new life (school days) but somewhere in my eyes I always yearn to get a glimpse of that part of her life in which I don't exist. I want to know the cute little stories of the school time, how she is making friends and what she talks with her friends, how she eats food herself and so on. I sometimes pray to God to make me invisible for a day so that I can live the day seeing my child enjoying her new life. But these kids perfectly knows how to make their moms more curious by not speaking at all about their day.

So after trying hard to get my daughter open about the school time, I came up with a trick which really helps. Now I don't ask the same question to her. She willing tells me everything about her school. So how it works.

It's a meeting trick. We all three sit together at night and do a meeting. So first I start and tell about my day what I eat, what I did and so on and then husband tells about his day what he eat, which friend sat with him, how many times he go to washroom, what work he did and all the data of our day is related with like a small kid day. And then my daughter starts and full suspense story of the day finally comes out :):)

It's the easiest way to connect and communicate. Try it and you will also get to know what your little kids do when away.

WHERE WERE YOU?

So I found this teacher some four years back. And I have never found such teacher before. This teacher is teaching  me the best lessons so far and continuing perfectly to make me more calm and happy. She is teaching me how not to loose pateince and how to cherish and value time. Why I met you so late? Where were you?

My best learnings from this esteemed figure in my life are:

1.How to be happy always- now even wiping someone's ass makes me happyπŸ˜‹. Cleaning the whole mess I am not involved in makes me happy too.

2. How to adjust in less- sleeping on edge of the bed, wow I am so adjusting now. Thanks to my teacher, she is giving me the best teachings of life.

3. Appreciate small things- now I appreciate even if someone finish a glass of water. This is the power of this teacher.

4. How to always be in guilt- going to office fills me with guilt, staying at home makes me guilty. Leave all things apart now even going to washroom shows me as guilty.

5. Be happy in your own skin- she has taught me how to embrace own skin without any parlor visit and even no shower for days. So love yourself the way you are. I tell you, she is genius as a teacher.

6. How to make your mind happy- now a 5 minutes non disturbing shower feels like a spa. This is the power of a good teacher.

7. How to be a smart eater- I eat chocolates and junk food and trust me no one knows how. All credit to my teacher for life. For everyone, I am a healthy eaterπŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—. I even have developed the skill now to stop chewing suddenly and pretend nothing is in my mouth.😜😜

So this is how a good teacher is. She is  my lovely and naughty girl. I found mine what about you?

THAT ONE FEAR WHICH IS MORE THAN A DEATH

Public Speaking is the most fearful task for many. People loose their shit out when go public. And the same is with kids, they can feel intimidated same way as any adult can be. Without a doubt, this skill is the most demanding today. So how can we make our kids ready for it.



My 3.5 year old beautiful daughter got first position in first competition of her life. And that was so overwhelming, I have never felt so happy. Her sparkling eyes while showing me the certificate were so loveable and this memory I will cherish for life. I know she will do many participation in life but the value of everything first is beyond words.

Parents play a major role in child development and it's our responsibility to make sure how we can give them the best of life and best of skills which they will value forever.

Children can easily be mould the way you want.  They are like clay in potter's ✋. So make them the best of it.

Following simple rules can build the desired confidence amongst them to go for the public speaking platform and win the πŸ’“. Winning is not always the answer, participation is.

How this can be achieved-

1. Talk and Talk-  the basic rule, talk as much as you can and talk like having a great conversation with adults. Don't converse in kids voice. Talk and allow them to speak and listen carefully with interest. Showing interest develops confidence amongst kids and they feel the urge to share their stories.


2. Don't over correct- correct them wisely don't overdo it. Let them get free from the hesitation first and then correct them. I always try to speak in English with my girl. And how I started is translating the Hindi words to English. This gives the understanding of both the languages.


3. Appreciate them- My daughter loves being appreciated and I do that because she loves it. At the bedtime I daily tell her few lines like you speak so well and we are so proud of you keep that up. So in her sub conscious she knows that she is doing her best.


4. The word rule- pick a word and make a story of it. First you start and your kids will definitely follow you with their self made funny stories.

Make the learning fun for your lovely kids, do not burden them unnecessarily.
