Being a parent makes you have to learn a lot of things you never learned before. At school, there is no subject that explained the way to feed a toddler, handle a toddler’s tantrum, or keep the patience. You have to learn these items exactly at the time you need. This makes a lot of parents decide to join parenting class to make sure they apply the proper parenting methods to the children. Among various points in parenting methods, there is an important skill that you have to learn. It is patience. This is the way you control yourself and not give in to your child’s temper tantrums and other behavior problems.
Actually, there is no special way to learn about being patience because each child has different characteristic. It is better for you to know many things that comfort and disturb your child. By doing this, you will automatically know what to do when she needs your attention. Understanding your child is a way you can do to be more patient. In certain time, there is a chance that you will be angry and cannot control your emotion. Try to manage your anger soon to avoid yelling and shouting to your child. Take a deep breath and keep silent for a while. Then, try to explain smoothly that something should not be done. When you are angry, there is a chance that your child is getting more confused since she does not know the reason of your anger.
Your patience can be developed by spending more time together with your child. This is the time that you can play, draw, and sing together with her. As a result, there will be special connection and trust between you and your child. While playing, you are explaining the rules and the consequences of taking certain actions. See whether your child understand and follow your instruction or not. You may also follow your child instruction to let her know what to do. The important thing you have to know is there is no instant process to learn how to be more patience. You need to learn step by step continuously.
