Preparing Your Child to Return to School
If your child is returning to the classroom in person after the pandemic, it's normal for them to feel anxious. How will they handle the social distancing? What if they need a mask break? What if another child makes them uncomfortable by taking off their mask?
Setting Limits Solutions (Beyond Discipline Part 2)
Imagine for a moment that when you ask your child to do something, they do it. When you ask them to stop doing something, they stop. They might protest a bit, or try to test your limit. But you're able to stay patient and connected. You keep your sense of humor and hold your limit. And your child does what you ask, without a power struggle. Everyone stays in a good mood. Over and over again, all day long!
Impossible? Actually, this is something you can do. Really! Even if you have a challenging child, there are specific actions you can take to can make this your reality more and more often.
Calming Anxiety and Helping Children Feel Safe
Children are very sensitive to the fear that's swirling around them. They worry about invisible germs, or dangerous demonstrations, or that police officers might be hurtful instead of helpful. They worry that we might die, or their grandparents might die. Or maybe they develop unrelated fears, like sleeping in their bed alone, or that a bee might sting them. Maybe they simply cling, and insist on being on our lap, even to the point of pushing their sibling out. Maybe they regress, having potty accidents, whining or collapsing into helplessness. Or maybe you don’t see anxiety directly, but your child becomes demanding and difficult or aggressive.
All these responses are about being in the grip of fear. You can call it anxiety, or worry, or a full backpack, but it’s all fear. If your child tended to be a bit anxious before the pandemic, you can expect to see lots more anxiety now.
