General questions on parenting and how to deal with them in the best possible way.
Now, what makes her so special is that she feels, it is her responsibility to take care of her grandfather and grandmother. Small things like giving them water from fridge, taking out their shoes, handling them their stick, holding their hands while climbing stairs, etc... makes us feel proud of her. In a way we as a parent became her role model and made her learn to respect elders n help others in need.
Now, he makes sure to put coins in the piggy bank. And now wherever he would see coins he would ask us to put them in the piggy bank :) We all could save around 650/- in one month which was sufficient for him to get a new toy. I am happy that he is so responsible to tell me also to put coins in the piggy bank.
They should know the importance of family, education etc. Specially a good human being. When other people refer your child as a role model for their child; then that is what can be defined as a successful parenting.
Children always have a great bit to learn before they are grown. We would expect the school to help our child expand his social skills, guided by the school staff as and when needed.
The reality is that most of the days, our child will spend half of his waking time at school. We want him to get the most out of that time, in terms of both constructive and fun.
As most of the activity time she will spend in school with the peers and teachers, our expectation from teachers is encourage our child to participate. Also with full support guidance from teacher we will be able to understand in what areas our child is lacking and how can we contribute to enhance her skill or knowledge.
School should provide self-learning ability in child as this goes throughout life and will help him in long term, school should enable child to take his/her decision with pros/cons.
I feel there are certain times when it is best to ignore him for a while. It works...
The very first thing that I do it to divert her attention but if this does not help I ignore her & stop paying attention to her tantrums. She becomes normal in some time. This has always worked.
For example, your son wants ice cream, but it's too close to dinner. Say: "Son, you're really getting upset now. Calm down or you'll have to go to your room." Stem your own rising frustration level. Try to determine the cause of the tantrum. Do not reward the tantrum. If the parents give in, tantrums become a launching point for the child—a way to deal with the world socially. Explain to the child that you will talk to him or her when he or she calms down.
Avoid trying to reason with any child who is in the middle of a full-blown tantrum, especially in a public place. Discuss the behavior with your child once the tantrum has ended.
As parents our tone is very important when we are disciplining. A tone which is soft and in control is always preferable. Even a child who misbehaves a lot behaves positively sometimes. Find those times and reinforce them.
