Think about the consequences of yelling your children to control your emotions. Some tips help you to know what to do so your kids don’t stress you out.
- Prevent Misbehavior in the First Place
- Discipline When Appropriate
- Take Care of Your Own Well-Being and Stress Relief
You have been angry and yelled at children, but that does not make them accept wrong. Even they become more stubborn, difficult to tell, and increasingly distant from you. Have you ever regretted hitting your child when you were angry and have not known what to do so your kids don’t stress you out?
Getting angry and yelling at children only churns out the affection of parents and children, so restrain yourself! Try these tips when you are about to go crazy when your child is naughty.
Give yourself some space to calm your anger
You should leave the room and go to a private place with a lock (keep your baby in a crib with a locked door). You should get a moment of peace, let the anger go away to help you control unwanted behaviors, or spend five minutes listening to a song.
Think back to your memories
In your free time, you can spend time thinking about memorable moments with each of your children. Then, if you get angry when your child is naughty, remember those happy moments, which is the meaning of your life.
Actively control your emotions
You can manage your attitude by controlling your ego and stopping negative thoughts such as frustration and discomfort. You should focus on what you can control rather than criticize.
You can’t suppress your anger when you’re angry, but you can still pretend that you can control your emotions. Use a soft voice (pretending to laugh happily) with your child until you feel calm.
Take a break
You can find time to spend time with your partner and stay away from the children for a necessary period. You can come back to take care of your children when you feel better.
Incarnate into a particular character
Pretend to be a character you love. Silly things are sometimes a great way to soothe your emotions, even in the most outrageous situations.
Make a question
Ask your child, “Why do you think I am angry?” Then they will check their actions instead of continuing to do the thing that made you angry earlier.
If your children are not obedient, you can warn then that you are going to get angry or upset with them. At least your children will still be mentally prepared before you get yelled.
Please clap your hands
If you are angry and you know it, try clapping your hands? Slapping your hands together (very hard, if necessary) can help you realize you’re mad. Clapping is better than slamming doors or throwing things when you’re insane.
Give children the right to choose
Your children need to be aware that their parents cannot answer all the questions. You can ask your child: “I am sad because you do not have a health examination. What should we do?” Even though they may not be able to help you, it is better to give your child the right to choose.
Knowing the dangers, parents must learn how to control their emotions and know what to do so your kids don’t stress you out. However, if you’ve ever yelled at your children, don’t blame yourself. Nobody is perfect. The bottom line is that you decide to change now when you know the harms caused by this behavior.
