20th July: Do you know that positive parenting can help a lot in dealing with challenged children.
In fact, positive parenting is regarded as one of the most successful strategies for handling children with challenging behavior patterns.
Role of positive parenting for challenged children—Parents having challenged children often suffer from guilt. And its not anything new. However, a point worth notable here is that challenged children can be helped by adopting positive techniques of parenting. Such steps can help challenged children learn adapt themselves to life by inculcating self-discipline and managing life’s stresses successfully.
Change in parent’s attitude—This is the first thing that needs to be changed to help your child lead a normal life. As a parent, you must be ready to change your attitude towards behavior of your child. So, instead of calling your child as spoiled or wild, the suggested attitude should be to call him or her highly energetic or as having high standards or simply eager to learn new things.
Having such positive parenting attitudes and techniques will bring a positive change in their children. Your child or children will have a much better positive image about himself or herself.
And mind it, this does not, in any way, mean that you need to accept his or her inappropriate or bad behavior. Rather, the focus must be on bringing forth positive personality traits of your children by keeping in mind the viewpoint of your child.
Focus on positive aspects—If you are ready to focus your attention on your child’s positive or good behavior while trying to ignore negative traits, then you are heading towards becoming a positive parent. You will be astonished to learn that your child will stop praying pranks or throwing tantrums because he or she will get to know that any negative display of emotions is likely to get ignored by his parents. So, he or she will, ultimately learn to react and become good mannered. And that’s what our aim simply is.
Your child is watching—Don’t fret that your child does not listen you. Be wary of the fact that your children are watching you. So, how you react or exhibit your behavior is going to be copied by the child. Hence, it is important for the parents to keep a check on their own behavior if they want to bring improvement in their children’s behavior.
