Do you feel that your kids are getting out of control? Is it getting impossible to manage them? Here are a few self control tips which can help mothers to stay calm.
Like all mothers, you too would have experienced how difficult it is to handle kids especially when they are at home or even outside. Kids throw the ball around the house and even write on walls. At times, cleanliness of the house really takes a backseat. At such times, Moms might feel exasperated and need ways to calm down because yelling would not work.
Typical Scenario in a Household
It is early in the morning and your kids have to go to school. Your husband demands breakfast and tiffin while your kids refuse to wake up even though they are getting late. You have to comb their hair and keep their clothes ready. At the same time you have to manage the kitchen and look at the gas stove. You are so exasperated because they just would not wake up and time is running out. What will a mother do in such a situation?
Scenario Number 2
You are working from home for a day because you are not feeling well. Your boss gives you a certain project to complete. You have an important call in ten minutes and your kids are creating a ruckus at home. They are yelling and throwing things all around. They would not allow you to work even though you are having important work. What does a Mom do in such situations?
Sometimes kids do not allow mom to cook in the kitchen and keep on disturbing without giving her even a minute of peace. Such situations are common in every household. You need to be extremely patient and calm if you have to get through the day especially if the kids are way too young. Older kids generally understand better however dealing with two or more children can be extremely difficult at times.
Here are a Few Self-Control Tips for Moms
Take a quick look at some self-control tips that moms can follow.
Ask for Help
At times, mothers often feel alone especially when the kids are creating havoc. During such situations, it is best to hire a nanny or invite the grand-parents to offer a helping hand. They too can look after the child while you concentrate on your work.
Plan Your Day and Create a Schedule
The best solution is to create a time frame for kids to be in the house. For example, let them know that you will be busy during certain times of the day and they can talk to you later on. Allot a specific time schedule for helping kids with home-work or school-work.
If your child wants to play and refuses when you say ‘No’ then you should be firm with them. Do not encourage tantrums or pamper them especially when they are being stubborn. Tell them that you are busy and you will play with them or talk to them later on. You will need to be strict without hurting them in the process.
Do Not Get Distracted
Parents often start yelling especially when they feel like nothing is going on smoothly. Do not be distracted when children trouble you. You should concentrate on whatever you are doing. You can even lock your room if you need some silence or privacy because like everybody else, your needs also matter.
