Motherhood: Patience In Parenting 5
Hello Great Mothers!
The secret to excellent parenting is patience. No one can precisely measure the transformation from adulthood to motherhood. Everyone goes through these changes on their own, yet we all ultimately have the same parental responsibilities.
Children often reveal a different side of us. Due to their inherent curiosity, children frequently act in ways that are improper, careless, challenging, or harmful without giving them a second thought. And we always tend to respond with the same impulse, either by yelling, cursing, saying things we will regret later, or over-disciplining them.
As discussed in my previous article, children often imitate their parents’ emotional strategies to learn how to control their own emotions. This implies that if a parent has the propensity to become frustrated, lose their temper, or give up, their child can exhibit similar behavior.
Also, a parent’s emotional control when dealing with a disturbed child has a significant impact on the emotional growth of that child.
As a result, maintaining calmness and patience in front of our children while we’re upset is one of the most important parenting skills we can learn, especially when our children are the ones causing the frustration.
