CHILD EMOTIONS

 
Handling emotions well is a vital lesson for our children. There are great number of people whose plans for life were short -circuited by the fact that they were unprepared to understand the emotions of others and at the same time unable to manage the flow of their own emotions. It's not a say it kind of a thing but it is living it daily. Remember our children are our emotional apprentice. The task is though not an easy one, the only way to accomplish it is, by them first  observing you, then letting them practice what they are learning . But still don't forget to be patient with them.
            As human being , we are all flawed;am sure you know that. We react instead of respond. We are suppose to respond to our kids instead of react to them, because sometimes we are part of the reasons are children behave the way they do. Let's take a look at the following.
               

  1.     For your child to be patient, you must be patient 
  2.     For your child to be kind, you must show kindness to your child and everyone around you
  3.     For your child not to be envious, you must be joyful for other people accomplishment 
  4.     For your child not to be braggart, you must temper your accomplishments with humility
  5.     For your to have a healthy view about life, you teach them that Our source of victory is God
  6.     For your child to act politely, you must be cautious about your words and actions towards others.
  7.      For your child to act maturely, you must first demonstrate it by your own actions.
In essence we must first of all become who we want our children to be. It is high time we stop expecting our children to become our better version by saying one thing and doing a total different thing from what we teach. Remember everything we can ever imagine is achievable. And you can raise that emotional intelligent child you imagine, the secret is first become whosoever you want to become.

  2. It is well known that children learn by copying their parents' behavior. This is why it is so important to always be kind and understanding around children, and never lose your temper.

  5. I have learned to practice what I preached with my children. They are just looking at us and do exactly what we are doing.

  6. This is so true. I try to teach my students these virtues by showing them myself. It can be hard but it rewarding at the end.

  7. Yes, children mimic those closest to them, and it is so important to show them good habits and surround them with good influences.

  9. Children mimic, therefore we should always lead by example. At times, easier said than done. Great post!

  10. I agree with this post. Kids learn from parents so therefore, parents have to be very careful.

  11. I definitely agree. Children learn from what their parents do, they are constantly watching everything that their parents are doing, absorbing everything.

  13. So many philosophers and psychologists have stated that childhood is the crucial stage of emotional development. And children learn a lot by immitating us.

  14. I totally agree. We parents must be a good role model for our children. We should be the one to set a good example for them to follow.
