A Parent’s Guide to Patience
Children can be annoying. They like to play games that adults don’t enjoy. When is the last time you wanted to play with dolls, climb a tree, or ride your bike up and down the cul-de-sac? They’re loud. They complain. They know how to push your buttons.
Children can be a great source of frustration. They’re also a great source of joy.
You can embrace the joy and show your unconditional love with patience. After all, they depend on you to teach them how to best get along in this world. Why not exemplify patience and give them a gift they’ll never outgrow?
Be a more patient parent with these strategies:
- Understand your trigger points. When are you most likely to be unreasonably impatient? Is it at bedtime? After a hard day at work
- Make a list of your trigger points and keep it handy.
- Is there anything you can do to change the situation? Maybe you could listen to relaxing music on the ride home after a long day. Could you alter your children’s bedtime routine?
- Where does the challenge lie? You’ve seen wonderful children with impatient parents and misbehaving children with incredibly patient parents. Neither situation is ideal. How well do your children behave? It’s not easy to assess our own kids accurately.
- Ask the most reasonable person you know whether they consider you to be a patient or impatient person. Then ask them how well they think your children behave. Ask them to be completely honest.
- Put your attention where it will be most productive. You’re not doing yourself, your children, or the rest of society any favors if you tolerate poor behavior from your children.
- Visualize yourself being patient in challenging situations. Use your list of situations that try your patience the most and imagine yourself dealing with those situations calmly and effectively. When you’re faced with the real situation, you’ll have a better chance of dealing with it appropriately.
- Be patient with yourself. Everyone is impatient at times. We aren’t static. This is good news because it means we can change. Accept that you’re only human and that you’ll have the occasional bad day.
- Pause before you act or speak. The greatest damage occurs when you fail to take a moment before making a decision. You can save yourself a lot of grief if you’ll take a minute to pause when you’re upset. Take 10 deep breaths, regain your composure, and then make your decision.
- Give yourself a timeout. If you’re unable to find a peaceful mental place, take 15 minutes. When you’re upset, you lose the ability to make intelligent decisions. If no one is bleeding or on fire, they’ll survive for 15 minutes while you collect yourself.
- Consider the perspective of your child. Children have little power or control over their lives. You’re holding all the cards. When you act in a way that’s frightening or unreasonable, your child can’t trust you. What could be more frightening? You could be causing more damage than you realize.
- On the other hand, children are also quite resilient and forgiving. You don’t have to be perfect, but it’s important to be reasonable. Your children deserve it.
If you’re impatient with your children, you’re not alone. Children can be a challenge to your ability to remain calm, cool, and collected. However, you can change. You can become a more patient parent. Enhance your ability to deal with frustration and prevent frustration from occurring with these tips you can use every day.
Life isn’t always easy. We’ve all faced some tough times. However, the way you handle difficult situations can make a big difference.
Many of us make life even more difficult by handling our challenges poorly. This creates additional issues that require time and energy to rectify. How you handle trying times says a lot about you. Others notice. Will you let these times bring out the worst in you or the best in you?
Make it easier on yourself and get through difficult times wisely with these easy strategies:
- Strategies to Help You Get Through Difficult Times. Part of what makes challenging times challenging is the belief that you have no options. Feeling powerless isn’t pleasant. Remind yourself that you still have choices. How you choose to handle the trying situation is one of those choices.
- Pay attention to all of the things that are still good in your life. You may have lost your job, but you still have your health and your family. Maybe you’re getting divorced, but you still have your friends, job, health, and your children.
- What was the best thing that happened to you last year? Who is most important to you? Make a list of at least 20 positive things in your life and then notice how much better you feel. This will help you to relax and cope.
- If you focus on the one thing that isn’t working, you’ll only succeed in making yourself more miserable.
- Look for solutions. Focusing on your difficulty is natural, but ineffective. In fact, it only saps your resources. Decide that you’re going to find a viable solution. It doesn’t have to be the perfect solution. Just a decent solution. Give yourself the time you need to brainstorm, but avoid taking longer than necessary.
- Begin implementing your solution. For example, if you’ve lost your job, your solution might include several steps:
- Update resume.
- Create accounts and profiles on five job boards, such as LinkedIn and Monster.com.
- Contact at least five headhunters in my field of employment.
- Contact everyone I know and let them know that I’m looking for a job.
- Update my social media accounts to show that I’m looking for work.
- Keep a smile on your face. You don’t feel like smiling, but do it anyway. It will make you feel better and let others know that you’re okay. If you want to handle a challenging time gracefully, smiling is mandatory.
- Continue to take care of others in your life. Your family and friends still need you. You may have to reduce your care and attention a little, but don’t crawl into yourself and ignore everyone else in the world. You’ll feel better about yourself if you’re still taking care of the important people in your life.
- Release your anxiety. You can feel your anxiety in your body. It’s located in a specific location, most often your stomach or chest. Imagine opening up a door in that location and letting it all out. Continue releasing it until it’s all gone.
- Thank everyone when the crisis is solved. Let everyone know that you appreciate their love and support. You’ll be even more likely to get the same support the next time something goes wrong.
It’s not a matter of whether or not you’ll face difficult times. It’s only a matter of when. Since challenging times are inevitable, why not deal with them effectively and gracefully? It will say a lot about your character, others will respect you, and you’ll come out on the other side quicker and less bruised.
