Bad mood at home. Why?
As parents we must be aware of each negative behavior that our children present to immediately correct them. Is it normal for a child to get in a bad mood just because he doesn't do what he requires. Why does this happen?
This type of behavior is manifested from the parameters that are generated at home. The child does not assume norms, nor rules when the parents treat their children as an equal and when they see a disobedient action they do not know what to do, they let themselves be dominated by the negative actions they present, making them feel they have the power, forming temperamental children and impulsive.
Education begins at home, but if there is permissiveness and little discipline, it will be normal for the child to have characteristics of capricious behavior and bad mood, if a child is temperamental and impulsive, does not respect authorities and somehow is allowed these behaviors, it consolidates this behavior that over time becomes part of its character.
What should I do?
-It is important that at home you start by establishing rules and limits, making it clear to the child what should be done and what not, when talking about limits, is to teach him how far he can get with his anger and how his reaction should be towards something that He doesn't like it, encouraging respect always towards his authorities.
- Do not react in the same way: if the child gets in a bad mood and looks for ways to throw things or disobey, it is better in these situations to wait for him to calm down or stop his bad behavior to be able to make the necessary corrections. It is recommended not to react with screaming, as this will lead the child to recite in the same way, imitating the same behavior and rather to calm down, only learn a new way of communicating, they will assume that screaming and bad character are part of life and a natural way to respond when something does not like. Only bad behavior will be reaffirmed.
-Wait for him to calm down: When he calms down, he should take the child to see the badness of his behavior and teach him what is the correct way to react, making him see the consequences of his actions and how he can affect his family and friends by his bad character.
-Promote empathy: This is the basis for controlling bad mood, you must talk to learn to put yourself in the place of the other person, teaching him to ask for forgiveness and accept his mistakes.
-Teach him to control himself: The child should be guided to understand that every act has consequences, it will be a good exercise for him to learn to control his temperament and impulsivity, the instructions of what to do in a certain situation will be a good methodology that can be implemented to that will improve their behavior patterns.
