By on March 21, 2017

As society is changing day by day and this is leading to many parenting challenges. The lifestyle of today’s children is quite different from ours when we were kids. They are exposed to many entertainment gadgets, and this has transformed their minds. As a parent, you always think to protect your child against all consequences, but you need to let them face some consequences without stepping in to fix things for them. This is important to teach them some life lessons and make them capable enough to handle their problems in future.

We often have the tendency to compare others child with our child and wonder why our kid is so difficult to handle. This could be because they either have learned how to deal with them or might have implemented new ways of parenting. So, it’s time to take some action if you are struggling with various parenting issues such as demanding, aggressive children, etc. Here we have highlighted some major concerns that parents are facing these days along with their resolutions:

1.Tantrums in Public:

The most common problem of these days children are that they often throw tantrums and if these tantrums are remained unchecked, this can lead to dangerous situations. You have to keep a check on your child tantrums because if you remain ignorant, then they probably turn out to be demanding teenager and stubborn adult. You can control your child tantrums like when you walk up to a store suddenly your child starts screaming, kicking and falling in public if you are not getting them what they need. In such case, you have to act wise and firmly tell them if they do not stop, you will walk away and if he still doesn’t stop then firmly pick up your child leave the store.

2.Physical Violence:

Sometimes kids show their frustration and anger in the form of being violent with others then you need to tell them that this behavior is not acceptable and make them aware of the consequences. Try to analyze their behavior and ask them why they are angry. Your child needs to know that you are paying attention to their behavior. Sometimes for handling a difficult, aggressive child, you need to keep an eye on their activities and act accordingly.

3.Lying:

I know it disheartening when your kids lie to you so tell them you still love them if they make mistakes but confront them and tell them punishment is less for the crime than the lie and let them choose. If they tell you the truth at the end, do not forget to reward them. If your kid is good at making, stories then do appreciate his/her skill but make them aware how important is to be truthful and how they can get into difficult situations at school when they lie.

4.Fears:

To make your child strong for the future you need to stand with him to counter his fears and provide all the support so that he can overcome his fears. This will make him more outgoing, confident and capable.

5.Alcohol or Drugs:

As your child starts to grow bigger then make him aware of the consequences of consumption of alcohol or drug. Tell him that both of these are not acceptable as he can be expelled from the school and if he commits any crime he can be put behind bars.

6.Are you making your child fat?

You need to teach your children how important it is to eat healthy food but if fast food and sweets make it tough then try to restrict your child from eating much junk and sweets and steadily try improving your child’s eating habits.

Try molding your parenting ways and see what difference they make in your child’s behavior.
