Feel drained at the end of the day by your kid’s behavior?
You need to remember is whose problem is this? Is this your problem? Or is this the kid’s problem? If it’s is the kid’s problem and you take that on as YOUR problem, you’re going to be exhausted every single day! The thing you need to understand is that this is their problem. You’re there to help them and you need to focus on what you can control and what you’re willing to do.
Tell them what you’re willing to do and do not try to solve their problem. Say what you’re willing to do in a calm and factual voice. When you keep an emotional distance to their behavior and don’t make it your problem or take it personally, it will be so much to manage challenging behavior and it will help everyone to be a lot happier.
