Understanding and Dealing with Children's Feelings

Understanding a child and his feelings is one of the most complicated tasks in this world. In fact parents find it extremely difficult to understand their children. They do not know how to handle them in a specific situation without hurting them mentally or physically.

This is also the reason that most parents are forced to take to spanking and whipping their children to tame them.

Studies have proved that these techniques can only harm a child. This may even make the child hurt and develop a feeling of disrespect for their parents.

The nest thing you can do is to learn effective ways to cope up with growing needs and feelings of your child. Here are some tips you can follow in this regard.

Watch out their actions

You need to observe the behavior of your child carefully. Know what they do and how they react in a specific situation.

Keep close tabs on their face expressions to know what they feel. This will let you understand their emotions better.

Taking special care to focus on changes in their voice tone will also help you a great deal. Brain develops as your child grows and the child tends to behave differently as they age. Understanding this will help you understand your child better.

Act according to the Mood of the Child

Once you understand by the body language and face expressions that your child is upset about something, you need to be with your child and ask him what makes him upset.

It is also important to be with the child until he feels normal again. Understand that your child is too small to handle difficult situations and complex feelings.

Ask your child to know exactly how he is feeling. Tell him the importance of confiding in an adult. The child must focus on asking for help.

Teach your child deep breathing techniques as these will keep him calm and muster adequate courage to fight off the problem. Let the child know how to distress. This is the best way to win his confidence and boost his self esteem.

No Negative talks

It is very important to stay away from negative talks. Do not talk about the child in a bad light even if he fails to perform at a big event.

This also applies when the child speaks negatively. Strictly avoid encouraging him when he says that he will bet up his friend or kill someone.

Just tell him that he is angry and things will appear to be in good light once he cools down. Lectures may bore your child to death.

Try quoting some instances from your own life or narrate him a story. This is the best way to keep the interest of the child intact.

Praise more Criticize Less
