If you are cutting your child's bangs and can't seem to make them look right, do not trim them from ear to ear. Try starting at the end of one eyebrow and cutting in until you get to the end of the other eyebrow. This will make your child's bangs look like they were professionally cut. Make sure you have an appropriate first aid kit in your home. Children suffer a variety of different injuries and you want to make sure you are prepared for them. In your first aid kit, make sure to include, band aids, hydrogen peroxide, alcohol, cotton swabs, bacitracin ointment, and calamine lotion. Tell your friends and family that you plan to breastfeed and educate them as to why. Let them know that you will have moments of stress and doubt and that they should help remind you of why you are doing this. If you provide friends and family a list of reasons why they will be much more likely to encourage and support you when things get hard. Start focusing on nutrition very early in the child's life. If you are able to convince them that they like healthy foods you can help them to avoid many of the health traps that the majority of adults suffer. You don't need to deprive them of treats, but show them healthy tasty treats. In disciplining your teen, it is important to follow through with your threats. If you take away television from your teen as a punishment, be sure to follow through with enforcing this, for instance. Otherwise, they will see your threats as idle and having no meaning, and you will lose any control over them. If you have a hard time getting a young child to understand and complete a task, you should try to give shorter and more precise instructions. The child may have difficulty grasping all the concepts if the instructions are too long. Also, if the instructions are vague, the child might just ignore the instructions altogether. Keep it short and to the point. Help your child decide what to keep and what to donate. It is easy for a child to get overwhelmed with possessions. Too often the consequence is sloppiness and disorganization. While a parent should never arbitrarily throw away a child's possessions, it is constructive for them to work with the child teaching them how to keep those possessions from overflowing their room. Make sure that your young child goes to bed at the same time everyday, even on the weekends. If you let you child stay up late on the weekend, sometimes it is difficult for him to return to his regular sleeping patterns during the weekday and that will cause him to oversleep in the mornings. Keeping the waking and sleeping schedule consistent is better. Something every parent should make sure to do is to listen to their children. It is simply not enough to be a physical presence for your child, you must also communicate with them, and that communication should go both ways. Take time out to listen to what your children have to talk and say to them, rather than at them. Take care not to pass your fears on to your children. Adults are irrationally afraid of many things in life rather than teaching your child to be afraid too, give them what they need to handle a wide variety of situations. For example, give them rules and expectations for how to behave if another adult approaches you and them aren't around. Allow them to feel in control and confident. See if you can obtain digital texts for your child to use at home. That negates the need for them to carry heavy books forth and back and the possibility that they will forget the text needed for that night's critical assignment. More and more schools are going to digital texts and the advantages are enormous. Limit your young child's TV time to no more than a few hours a week, if any. Studies have shown that a child's mind is really not active when they are watching TV, because TV watching is a passive activity. TV watching does not exercise the brain. Instead, engage them in constructive activities which requires them to interact. Don't ever answer your children's questions with "Because I said so! " Well, at least not the first time they ask. It's important to explain to a child why they're in trouble. Alternatively, why they're not allowed to do something. It's possible it will make more sense to them and they'll avoid doing whatever you say not to do because they don't want to do it themselves! Listen to your kids. Beyond just trying to make excuses and complain about stuff, they do try to tell you things. Before they get out of control, if you are listening to them you can correct a lot of issues. They need to feel like they can talk to you and that you will actually listen and not just hear what you want to hear. Reading is a very important part of your child's education. Reading is involved in every part of the learning process and it is also a huge part of society as a whole. Everyone must be able to communicate and read. Encourage your children to read at home and assist them in whatever ways possible to keep them at a high reading level. Toddlers love to dip their food into different tasty treats. Cut up fruits and veggies and offer them healthy dips. These can be yogurt, tofu dip, cream cheese, or perhaps cottage cheese. This will add more nutrition to your toddlers diet and they will be none the wiser because they are having fun! As stated at the beginning of this article, it is important for parents to learn techniques to calm themselves down. Hopefully this article has given you some great ideas to help you quickly calm down when your kids are pushing the limits of your patience.
