Congratulations! You now have your new addition to the family.
Whether it’s your first adopted child or you already have children of your own or previously adopted children, chances are you are here because you are looking for some parenting tips.
How Can The Following Parenting Tips Help You and Your Family?
Well, we teach by example right! Kids really don’t have the skills they need to deal with things and problem solve, so they will likely respond by acting out or yelling.
Let's face it, we YELL! (sorry, didn't mean to yell there), at our kids or we might even spank our kids. I know I was yelled at and spanked. It was the only way our parents knew and their parents, and their parents and so on down the line.
As parents, it is up to us to develop effective parenting skills in order to teach our kids the appropriate skills they need to apply when dealing with or improving their behavior.
What Does This Mean?
We need to teach our kids to take responsibility for their actions. They need to learn how to solve their problems and not react with inappropriate behavior.
Here’s an Example:
Say that your daughter gets mad because you won’t let her go over to her friends right now. So she storms off to her room and slams the door.
It is up to you to work with your daughter so that she understands that SHE is responsible for her BEHAVIOR. Which was being disrespectful and slamming the door.
She can be mad all she wants, being mad is what she is FEELING. It isn't your job to control her feelings, but her behavior is what you want to change.
*Note: It is always a good idea to talk to her though, about her feelings, once she has calmed down.
