In this episode, Michele presents a case, where the parents feel that they are always repeating themselves, talking to the top/side of their child's head, and have to help him at every step of a direction. Parents are looking for strategies that teach their child how to effectively problem solve and pay attention more frequently. David and Eric explore strategies that are related to column two of the Face Time Inventory, which is "things you do for your child, that you can do with your child. By exploring natural family routines, David and Eric extrapollate themes and activities that parents can involve their children in by assigning roles that fit the child's ability. Specifically, they cover the importance of proximity, modeling, eliminating environmental and internal competition, waiting for mindful attention, and solving the age old X and Y problem.
It’s easy to respond to your child's aggression with yelling or anger, but remember, your child is looking to you for cues on how to control his impulses and have good behavior."
Step in and Stop it Immediately
At the first sign that your child is about to become aggressive, immediately step in and remove him from the situation. Be careful not to give too much attention to your child so that you do not give any negative reinforcement for the bad behavior.
Lower Your Voice—Don’t Raise It
As parents, we need to show self-control and use gentle words if we want our kids to do the same. It’s easy to respond with yelling or anger, but remember, your child is looking to you for cues on how to control his impulses and have good behavior.
Practice Ways to De-fuse your Child’s Anger
For younger kids, help them recognize their anger by stating, “I know you're mad, but we don’t hit. No hitting!” For children aged 3-7, talk about anger as an important feeling.
Teach Kids that Aggression is Wrong
It’s also important to talk to your children about aggression during a calm moment. In a steady voice, explain to your child that hitting, biting, kicking, and other aggressive behaviors are wrong.
Recognize Your Child’s Limitations
This means knowing when to leave a potentially volatile situation or choosing to engage your child in a different activity to avoid aggressive confrontations.
