Adults want to always control the situation with their children, something that is not so easy to achieve. To do so, they end up resorting to yelling when a person is suffering from stress; an excellent technique to vent is yelling.
However, when it comes to educating a child, it is not. Screaming leaves marks in children's lives and unconsciously reinforces that negative behavior desired to eliminate in children.
No parent likes to yell at their children, but after doing so, it is too late to fix the mistake; the wounds are already on both the children and the parents.
The best thing to do is to try to handle the situation in another way. Putting this into practice can be tricky as it is learning. To achieve this more efficiently, there is a technique created by a mother who decided not to yell at her children anymore, and this technique is known as the orange rhinoceros.
This mother decided not to yell at her children for 365 days. To achieve this, she designed the following steps:
1) get away from the problem; this allows you to calm the anger a bit and cover the situation with serenity
2) close your eyes to escape. The idea is to close your eyes tightly and imagine a quiet place where you would like to be. By doing this, you can think more calmly
3) self-convince that they are children. At the time of the discussion, you forget that they are children, so repeat "they are children, they are children" as often as necessary
4) speak with a robot voice. That will positively capture children's attention and calm the environment allowing them to explain what they are doing wrong
5) move the body. That will release endorphins that will minimize anger
6) wear something orange to remember the challenge.
By exchanging the yelling for each of these steps will not cause you to lose authority over your children or violate boundaries. On the contrary, your life and that of your children will change positively.
Remember that children are fully capable of learning new things with ease. The following activity is focused on the Montessori learning method.
By elaborating a craft, children can develop all their abilities integrally, strengthening their self-esteem, autonomy, independence, and fundamental skills for acquiring new knowledge. Through handcrafts, children also develop patience and relieve stress and enhance their social relationships with other people.
