Some days are more trying than others, but I’ve found that even though it could be a scary thing for my child to think about me snapping at her, the reality is that she is not physically hurt, and she hasn’t hit, kicked, pushed, or thrown anything at me. However, I’ve had her cry and yell and scream at me and she’s not happy with me.
Sometimes, when a child has an accident, her behavior is more or less the same. The problem here is that this child is not a child who is easily hurt, so she has a lot of self-protecting mechanisms built into her. This child will not stop crying, screaming, and yelling until she is in a safe environment.
We can be very protective of kids and we should be. But the problem comes when we don’t use our protective mechanisms. The result is that we end up causing harm to others. For example, if I was to be attacked by a child, who would be hurt first? The child who is screaming and crying in the background. The child who is being harmed. The child who is physically afraid of being hurt.
This is a good article on the subject of child safety.
So if you are going to be a parent, you need to learn to recognize and control your child. Unfortunately, this is one of the most common problems children have. I will say though that there are some things that can be done, but the best thing that can be done for your child is to just stop. I have two children, one very little girl and one very, very little boy. I have been able to stop them from doing things that they would never do on their own.
My girl, for instance, has been snapping at my boy. I’m going to do my best to convince her that it’s okay to be mean, but I’m not sure how, because I’m not sure if my boy would listen. I try to take her out to the car and tell her she can’t do something, but I think she has a better chance of listening to me when I don’t beat her with a tennis ball than when I do.
That’s certainly true. There is some evidence that we can help our children to understand that some of the behaviors they do are wrong. That’s why we have the “do something” game, where we tell our children that if they do something really bad that they will get a bad mark on their little finger. But while we do that, we can also help them see that other behaviors they do are not wrong and are just as bad as the ones we are talking about.
If your child does something really bad and you don’t beat them with the tennis ball you are more likely to give them a bad mark than if you do. I know this because when I was young my mother would frequently beat me with the tennis ball. I would always cry and cry, and it was horrible. But now that I’m older, I’m much more conscious of hitting my children with that tennis ball.
I hate when my kids do something really bad, but instead of trying to reason with them and make them stop I just hit them hard, and that is much worse.
I know this for a fact because at age 2 my daughter came home from school and had a really hard time sitting. I was playing with my dog and he snapped at her and she was crying, and her teacher said, “hey, its ok mommy”. Well, it was NOT ok. I was so mad at her that I called her a horrible name in front of all of our friends. I would have to do it again.
