5 Tips for Dealing With a Strong-Willed Child

Blog2

No matter how much love you have for your little one, sometimes they can drain you when they are constantly refusing to follow direction or listen to what you have to say, as a parent. While this may make for a dynamic, inquisitive and sensitive chid, it can also mean they have a hard time handling those big emotions that they are so in-tune with. Can you say ‘headstrong’? These 5 Tips for Dealing With a Strong-Willed Child from Parenting From The Heart will help you parent those headstrong little beauties that you happen to call your children!

Nobody expects perfect parenting. Life gets in the way and things constantly crop up on a daily basis. Sometimes, you really need to hit that RESET button and work on strategies that will help your strong-willed, sensitive child listen better. These 5 tips will get you started in the right direction.

  1. Figure Out Why They are Upset

What is the core reason they are so upset? Sometimes when they are absolutely at the end of their rope, it’s time to step back and make sure their basic needs have been met. Because if they haven’t, it might be something easy that you can handle that will get their day back on track! Parenting From The Heart had these suggestions to look at:

  • Have they gotten enough to eat?
  • Are they sleeping well?
  • Have you been present for them or are you constantly busy doing other things when they are there?
  • Are you listening to them? Make sure you ask them how they are feeling and help them work through feelings that they are experiencing.

2. Be Empathetic to Your Kids

It’s important to acknowledge when your kids are upset. Empathy is a great thing you can give you child to be more emotionally resilient. By working to re-word their feelings in terms that they can understand, it helps them label what they are feeling, which in turn, helps them move forward.

3. Be Consistent

We all know how well children can test the boundaries of their parents. They always want to see just how far they can take things! This is why it’s so important to be consistent in your discipline. If boundaries aren’t clear, they will always test them. They will push back and before you know it, things are getting worse instead of better. You’ll have to figure out how this will work in your family, but aim for one warning for infractions you deem necessary, with no warnings for things that may be more serious. Soon, you’ll see how your consistency is working to reign in that strong-willed child!

4. Be Present

If your child continues to have a problem with regulating themselves and their emotions, it’s time to give them your undivided attention. It may be the key that you need, so they can understand that they are truly being heard.

5. Get Outside

No matter the season, get outdoors! Fresh air and kids go together like peanut butter and jelly. After some time spent in the great outdoors, kids seem to have such a better time listening and doing the right thing more easily. It may be likely from burning up all of that energy playing and exploring the outdoor world, but ultimately, it can lead to better eating and sleeping. It’s a win-win and this will go hand-in-hand with #1!

If you’re looking for ways to improve behaviors of your little ones who may be more strong-willed than you’re comfortable with, these five tips should work positively on moving things in the right direction!

5 Ways to Change Your Child’s Negative Behavior

Blog2

Do you wake up everyday on edge, not knowing what kind of mood your spirited child might be in? House Of Rose Blog has went through these same exact feelings and had SUCH helpful tips to help. These 5 Ways to Change Your Child’s Negative Behavior may just be the lifesaver you’ve been looking for!

House of Rose Blog talks about how she had to DRAG her little boy to PreK and how he wouldn’t cooperate. He would consistently ignore any kind of threat that they would lay down on him. Nothing seemed to work!

Then one day, it affected life at her son’s daycare. They had called her asking her to talk to her son over the phone. He refused to listen to anyone. His teachers were at a loss, he was kicking people and calling people names. And this poor mom’s heart sunk.

If you find yourself in helpless situations when it comes to your child’s behavior, know that you’re not alone! Parenting difficult children has happened since the world was created! You weren’t the first and you won’t be the last. But what can you do NOW to make the situation better?

These small, but impactful changes that House Of Rose Blog made really had a positive effect on helping to correct the behavior that she had finally had enough of. And after she began working with her son, she quickly realized there were two big issues that were affecting his behavior way more than she ever realized:

  1. Sleep – Some nights her son wasn’t falling asleep until midnight. Despite starting the daily bedtime routine hours earlier, he would still find distractions to stay awake for hours.
  2. Diet – She was dealing with one picky little eater!

Finally! She found two things that she COULD be in control of with a little work and effort! And just like that, House of Rose Blog helped to transform her son’s behavior with these 5 tips.

  1. Take Away Something Your Child LOVES!

Maybe it’s a favorite snack. Or a specific toy or blanket? Whatever that item is, your child needs to understand that they don’t get to use that item when they act poorly. If it’s a food or drink that you’re talking about, you may even have an extra benefit – making them try something new! Say you take away juice, or their favorite treat. If you have a picky eater, this is going to force them to try something new and now always run to their favorite stand-by. Yes, they more than likely are going to scream and pitch a fit. But once it’s over? They’re going to know you mean business and will try something new!

2. Create a schedule and stick to it!

If you’re having sleep issues with your child, create that bedtime schedule and STICK TO IT! Be strict about it and make sure that they understand that this schedule is going to be adhered to from here on out! Figure out what type of schedule will work best for you (include bath, bedtime books, cuddle time, etc.) and make sure you keep your child aware, the entire time, of how much longer they have until lights out!

The first few nights may be nothing short of awful. It will take time for your child to assimilate to the new schedule, but you have to stay strong, just as House Of Rose Blog discusses! It will get easier and before you know it, you’ll wonder why things were so hard for so long before you created this new schedule!

3. Don’t Forget Quality Time

Let’s face it. Parenting can be exhausting! By the time the night routine rolls around, you might be tempted to graze through the routine and maybe skip those bedtime books or whatever quality time you may spend with your kids before they fall asleep.

Don’t!

This can be time that they look forward to over the course of their entire day! For those 15 minutes, you are giving them your undivided attention and they crave it! You may be tired, but you can power through those last few minutes before they go to sleep. Before you know it, it will be the extra boost you need to get through your day, because you’ll be enjoying it as much as they are!

4. Set Realistic Expectations

Again, make sure your child knows what they are going to be facing throughout the day. It helps to deter total meltdowns when they otherwise would be caught by surprise and helps you to manage their expectations, too.

Understanding the timeframes on a child’s end can be so important. While you may encounter some unhappy children when you first start this routine, you’ll see that soon, they’ll be appreciative to know what they can expect next. And it will help them know what YOU expect of them, as well!

5. Pray

While many may have this listed as #1, asking God for help is something that House Of Rose Blog felt strongly in doing. She knew she couldn’t do it all on her own and needed God leading the way for her, as well as knowing that he was present for her obstacles with her son. And she knows… God can move mountains!

If you have a “spirited” child, these tips will hopefully help you manage your days and get your sanity back! While it may not clear ALL bad behavior, you hopefully will experience a lot fewer negative behaviors that you had in the past!

And don’t forget… you’re not alone!

  1. Make a Personal ABC Book

Not only is this an easy solution for you, as a parent, to put together, but it makes a child super excited to have something personalized to them! You can do things as easy or as high-tech as you want. Do a quick cut-and-glue book with pictures and markers, or print off something more digital from the computer. Whatever you decide, having something that features photos of things they are familiar with, such as toys, family members or pets, is such a great idea. What better way to get them slowly learning what letters of the alphabet make up the world around them!

2. Let your Child Show You How a Book Works

What a great way to let your child show their independence, while walking them through the steps of reading! By giving your child an age-appropriate book and letting them open the pages and point things out to you, they are boosting their own understanding and they feel like a little rock star! Even if they can’t read what they are pointing out, when they tell you their own versions of the story, they are comprehending what is in the book. We love this!

3. Have a Library-Book Parade

This is such a wonderful idea from Nurture Store on how to add a little twist to books your kids already love! There are a few ways you can do this. If you already go to the library on a regular basis and pick out a handful of books, make sure you take them home and display them on a shelf or counter where your child is always seeing them! It doesn’t do much good to bring the books home, just to sit in a basket or stacked in their room! It makes it more eye-catching and helps them see and remember which books they picked out to begin with!

Also, think about doing this idea with themes! If a holiday is approaching, make your book parade revolve around the holiday! Or a specific theme you may be working on, such as being polite, have those books on display for the kids to get excited about reading! What a great way to help them learn about things that are going on around you, as well as having a great way to display the books that they can dig into whenever they want!

4. Find the Best Writing Tools for Your Child

When you are first starting to work on writing things out with your little ones, it is a great idea to make sure that whatever writing tool they are using is suitable for their little hands! Instead of going straight for a pencil, maybe have them start with chalk or wide crayons. It helps to keep kids interested when they are able to easily hold the writing tool they are using!

5. Build Fine Motor Skills to Make Writing Easier

Who knew that working on fine motor skills with younger children would help support your child’s ability to write?! By working with babies, toddlers and preschoolers in developing their fine motor skills, it helps them tremendously when they reach the stage where more formalized reading and writing begins. Make sure their little minds and bodies are ready for the skills they will soon acquire by helping them get their fingers and hands ready through playing with toys like Legos.

Use these tips to start building strong readers in your home, before your child even knows what reading is! What a great way to make it fun and easy for them and before they know it, they are learning!

5 Pregnancy Tips to Stay Energetic While Raising A Toddler

Blog1

Being pregnant can be hard! Add a toddler onto that and it can be downright exhausting! Caring for your other children while you’re pregnant with your little peanut can be more than you bargained for, but no worries! The Military Wife and Mom has given us some wonderful tips to make it through this joyful, yet tiring time. You totally got this!

  1. Drink Water. A lot. And Than Drink More!

That little bambino of yours growing inside of you is taking up a lot of your water that you normally would think would be enough to… you know… grow! So The Military Wife and Mom suggests drinking extra water everyday, to make sure that the baby of yours is getting the nourishment it needs, along with keeping you well-hydrated! Work on drinking up to a gallon of water a day and even if you have a hard time managing that tall order, you should at least know to drink as much as you possibly can on a daily basis!

Other benefits? It will help you cut down on that nagging fatigue you may feel when pregnant, because dehydration isn’t going to set in. Water is going to help you avoid headaches, fatigue and give you lots of benefits for that sweet little baby and it’s free! Perfect!

2. Eat Energy-Boosting Foods

Even when you’re feeling extra tired and you just don’t think you have the energy to work on a healthy meal or snack, it’s more important than ever to eat well! The Military Wife and Mom has a lot of great tips to eat healthy and stave off that fatigue!

Look for foods that are rich in iron, which offer tons of support for pregnancy fatigue. When iron gets low in your system, you may start to feel moody, tired and sleepy, which we all know will make things more difficult to keep up with that toddler running under your feet all day long!

Search out leafy greens, red meats and chicken liver, if you can stomach it! Also, don’t neglect to take that daily prenatal vitamin! If you’re looking for something a little easier, or just don’t think you’ll make it through the day eating those types of foods, think about looking up great spinach and fruit smoothies that will help to get you the iron that you need! Yum!

3. Help Your Toddler Independently Play

There are going to be times that your little one is going to need you to be with them ALL. DAY. LONG., but as they start getting a little older, it’s the perfect time to start setting them up with the life skill of being able to be independent, even if it’s only for an hour a day. Talk about a sanity saver!

The key, though, is to use this time wisely. Don’t start overdoing it and don’t use it as a time to catch up with everything around the house. You’re growing a baby! Use the time to lay down and rest for a little bit. Sit down on the couch and take a load off, while you know you don’t have to answer questions every second of the day! You’ll be amazed how well it helps to boost your energy and keep you going for the rest of the day! It’s also a great way to make sure your toddler is going to be used to not being with you every single second once that new bundle of joy arrives!

4. Ask for Help!

It can be HARD to ask for help sometimes, we know! But when you’re pregnant and trying to make it through the day with a toddler, sometimes you have to suck up that pride and make sure you’re doing what’s best for your family. That means making sure you stay healthy!

If that means asking your spouse to take on some of your normal household duties for the next few months or bringing in a babysitter to help out a few hours a week, it’s your call! Don’t suffer alone and try to be brave!

5. Everything Can Wait

One of our favorite tips from The Military Wife and Mom is the fact that it’s WAY more important to take care of yourself during your pregnancy than it is to get everything done in your life and home. The laundry and cleaning is going to make it an extra day if you just aren’t feeling up for finishing it. Stop being so hard on yourself!

Remember, pregnancy may require extra sleep. If you are used to living on 6-7 hours of sleep a night, it’s going to be time to start adding to that number and getting extra sleep to nourish that little munchkin you’re working hard on growing inside of you!

Hopefully all of these wonderful tips are going to help you manage the next few months of living with a toddler, while managing the fatigue that comes with pregnancy. Do you have any additional tips you’d recommend? Let us know!

5 Tips for Calming Your Angry Child

Blog1

One difficult thing any parent can have to deal with is helping their child overcome their emotions that may take over in a negative way. Regulating those emotions when your young can be overwhelming and children look to parents to help them navigate those waters! Thanks to Views From A Step Stool, parenting can be made a little easier with the wonderful tips that were provided. It’s so important to be able to calm your child wherever you may be, but it’s also important for them to figure out how to handle those emotions on their own, as well! Thank goodness Views From A Step Stool also provided a great tool that parents can use to teach our children tactics to worth through their anger, no matter where they are! What an important life skill to master!

5 Tips for Calming Your Angry Child

  1. Give sympathy to Your Child

We all know how important everything seems to be to a child, even when we don’t quite see the value in the issue. This is not the time to not say, “what’s the big deal” and instead validate our children’s feelings. Calming your child will happen when they feel that you are understanding their feelings and value their thoughts!

2. Give Your Child Room, But Not TOO Much

Views From A Step Stool talks about how kids that tend to express anger openly and often may also be inclined to show physical aggression. Make sure you are providing an outlet to release tension they may be feeling, like punching a pillow or providing a “calm down corner”.  Don’t provide so much isolation that they feel cut off from the family, but by giving them a little space, they have the opportunity to calm down on their own.

3. Let Them Know Anger Is OK

Everyone feels emotions and everyone gets angry from time-to-time. We all experience many emotions on a daily basis and it’s a normal part of who we all are. But you also want to make sure you are clear by letting your child know that by becoming angry, there may be consequences – not because of the emotion they are feeling, but because of a behavior they may display. Views From A Step Stool really drove that point home and it’s a great one to remember. There is a huge difference between negative behaviors and the emotion that caused it!

4. Overreactions By You Won’t Help

Staying calm in the face of your child’s anger is imperative. While it can be extremely hard, it’s important to model the behavior you are looking for. Your child isn’t able to get a rise out of you and when you are calm, they are going to wonder why they are so worked up, as well. The more you lose your cool, the more they will lose theirs!

5. Keep Eye Contact

Another great tip from Views From A Step Stool is to make sure you demonstrate eye contact with your child when you are talking to them. By making your child feel heard, it will help to calm them down in the face of anger. Just think about how much eye contact means to you when you are trying to get your point across to someone!

In addition to the great tips that were provided above, Views From A Step Stool created an awesome graphic below on ways that kids can calm themselves down ANYWHERE you may be. How great and what a helpful tool to have! Enjoy!

5 Tips for Self-Reliance in Your Family

self-reliance-culture

When it comes to teaching our children how to take care of the things they have and be self-reliant on their own skills and habits, it is a wonderful skill for them to master. What parent wouldn’t want their child to be to be self-reliant throughout their life to make sure they are able to accomplish all of their goals and more? These 5 Tips for Self-Reliance in Your Family from The Survival Mom will help to ingrain beneficial skills that will take them throughout their entire lives!

In a world where everything is immediate and our needs are met instantaneously, children may be missing valuable lessons one what it would mean to know that they will be able to survive on the things that they have created. The Survival Mom makes such a good point when wondering if the next generation will be prepared for anything that may arise, like generations before us were able to do at the drop of a hat. God forbid, what if the next generation had to survive another Great Depression? Would they be able to make it?

These are all great reasons why it’s important to instill habits of self-reliance in our kids and make sure that they can effectively handle what comes their way. But how?

By following these 5 tips for preparedness, along with setting positive examples by your own actions, your children will be able to handle anything that comes their way.

  1. Being Thrifty and Frugal

The Survival Mom reminds of the old saying, “Eat it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without”, which is such a great reminder not only to teach our children, but for ourselves!  How many times have we simply bought something that could have been fixed, if we only had the time or patience? Or better yet, how many things have you thrown away that could have been repurposed to something different in your home?

It’s also imperative that you start watching where your money is going and you have a family budget set up. While this may be something that will greatly benefit your entire family and will keep you on track, it’s also a great way to live by example on how your children should manage their own money in a safe and functional way. Do your kids understand the difference between wants and needs? Now is the time to teach them!  “Keeping up with the Joneses” isn’t the mindset you want your children leaving home with!

2. Teach Independence

As The Survival Mom says, this isn’t just independence in everyday tasks and making sure they are able to survive the menial tasks they may have to do, but it’s learning to be independent from anything that would prevent them from living a full life. Help them conquer bad habits, teach them the benefits of how eating healthy and exercising will help them avoid challenges later in life and of course, money…

How do you teach a child what it means to be financially independent? First, by working with them about how destructive buying things on credit can be is a start. Again, this is a great way to live by example and work on paying your own debt down, if you have some. By showing them how restrictive it can be in the long run, you’ll be helping them to learn what not to do in their own future.

It’s also important to teach your children how they can be independent with time and how to prioritize the things that they do. The Survival Mom stresses the importance of being kind and charitable and making sure time is spent helping others. What a great way to teach your kids empathy, as well as helping them appreciate the things that they have in their own lives even more!

3. Teach Them to be Industrious

What in the world would it mean to teach your children to be industrious? The Survival Mom talks about how hard it can be to be resourceful all of the time, so it’s important to help your child discover talents and opportunities around them that they may not have known they had!

Maybe teaching them to sew so they are able to create their own items later in life, or fix the things that fall apart before buying something new. Or helping them to determine the best route of education for them to be as marketable as possible in their future careers. What great ways to make sure they will be self-reliant in the future!

4. Strive for Self-Reliance 

The Survival Mom stresses the importance of being able to do, make or fix anything that may cross paths with your family, but it’s going to take hard work and practice before the skills are mastered that they will need. What is the best way to learn different skills and how would you put them into practice? As we all know, the internet is a great resource for being able to find DIY solutions for things that may crop up in your life, as well as having your child work on building these skills, as well! It saves so much money by doing things yourself in your family, which in turn, helps to create a self-reliant family atmosphere. Not to mention, there can be such a sense of price that comes with fixing things yourself and mastering new skills. Think of how your child’s self-confidence will soar, the better they learn new things that will help them be self-reliant!

Gardening is a great way to help the family be self-reliant. What a great skill to pass on to your children. Not only are you able to produce food that is as fresh as can be for your family, but it also allows you to spend time with the ones you love when you’re caring for the garden.

5. Work on Helping Your Child Contribute to Having a Year’s Supply of Clothes and Food

What? Is this really possible? Don’t worry, it’s not as overwhelming as you may think and The Survival Mom walks you through the baby steps to get there! Make lists for amounts of things you may need and what they consume in the course of one day and multiply it by 7. You suddenly have what your goal will be for a 1 week supply! Once you have that supply stored up, add to it until you have three months stores. Next, 6 months, 9 months and finally 1 year.

It doesn’t happen overnight, but what a sense of accomplishment and relief when you know that your family won’t have to rely on anyone else to get you through any potential hardship, and you may even be able to help those around you who are struggling! How could you teach your child anything more useful?!

For clothing, watch clearance racks, out-of-season items and thrift stores to start building up your supply. And by stocking up on fabric that is on sale, you’ll be able to have a good supply to sew from, once you master that skill.

How amazing to be able to teach your child the benefits of self-reliance!

Helping Kids Learn Self Control

Tired and moody girl with arms folded and taking a nap on the desk

Helping Kids Learn Self Control can be a tricky task, but one that needs to be mastered, nonetheless. The Intentional Mom has some amazing ideas on how to do just that and we absolutely fell in love with all of the great ideas she shared.

So how does one go about teaching their child to exercise self control? We know how important it will be as they continue to grow and we want them to be respectful and polite, no matter what they are faced with. But, as adults, we know how hard it can be to follow-through with what we initially set out to do, right?! Imagine how hard it would be for a child!

The Intentional Mom discussed how important self control can be to helping a child develop a healthy sense of self-esteem. Having a positive self image will help them over the course of their entire life, so it’s such an important task to master! Just think about how difficult it can be to stare at those fresh chocolate chip cookies that came straight from the oven. We know our kids would be all over those cookies, which shows us a prime example of how self control can come into play every day!

Self control may be difficult for a child to learn, but over time, it will begin to become second nature to them, as most habits will. It’s our job as parents to train our children how to behave with self control, but how?

  1. Help them to avoid an immediate reaction

It can be hard for children to not want to immediately respond when someone hurts them or promising something that they probably wouldn’t be able to follow through with. The Intentional Mom discussed why it is so important to lead by example when it comes to showing our kids why avoiding an immediate reaction works well. Just by simply telling them, “I will have to think about it” helps them to see that not everything needs to be answered right away or warrants an immediate reaction.

What a great way to talk about how they can avoid careless mistakes and keeping themselves out of trouble by thinking things through.

2. Practice Delayed Gratification

Now this can be a hard one for kids to comprehend. But again, based on the information from The Intentional Mom, it’s a great one to show them through everyday teaching moments that you, as a parent, come across. Everything today is so instant and when someone wants something, it seems like with the push of a button, it’s theirs! So you can see why practicing delayed gratification might be a little tricky with kids.

Model the behavior yourself by avoiding impulse buys when shopping with the kids. Let them know why you aren’t buying something they may want and how the concept of money rules decisions on things that can be purchased. Living within our means is always a great lesson to share with our children and this can be a by-product of exercising self control.

3. Help Your Child Develop Good Habits

Everyday practices like washing hands and brushing teeth are always great habits to help your children get familiar with. These smaller things lead to bigger positive habits that can be developed, as well. Sharing the benefits of exercise, eating healthy foods, being nice to others, etc. are great ways for you to model that good behavior you are trying to instill and self control is required with all of those.

4. Demand Responsible Behavior

Instilling responsible behavior in our kids will also help them learn self control. Having them help with things around the house, giving them specific chores that they need to accomplish and teaching them to save their money for things they may want are great ways to teach them self control! The Intentional Mom talks about how these examples will quickly show a child that when they make a poor decision, there will be a consequence to their actions. Which leads to responsible behavior if they want to turn things around. Genius!

5. Allow Nature to Take Its Course

Phew! It can be a little scary to let the reigns go, but The Intentional Mom discussed why sometimes its necessary for your child to feel the consequences of negative behavior. And when they do make a mistake, it’s the perfect opportunity to talk to your child about how using self control may have brought about a different outcome!

Don’t let these teachable moments pass them by. Sometimes the only way for kids to connect the dots is to let them fall and learn from their mistakes.

We all know that people who can exercise self control in their lives will have an easier time navigating the pitfalls that may arise. They have an easier time in their relationships and won’t find things hold them back as much as those who have a hard time controlling their actions. And isn’t that what we all want for our children?
