Parenting Fearful Children: 7 Mistakes and 11 Solutions

Worried boy
"Please Don't Make Me!"


IS YOUR CHILD OVERWHELMED WITH WORRY AND FEAR? If so, you can help him turn anxiety into confidence. Today I will list 7 mistakes you don't want to make, 3 worrisome situations for anxious children, and 11 easy steps for helping your over-sensitive child.

Anxious children know the awful experience of thoughts and feelings running wild. For them, it's like a tsunami. They try to avoid such danger at all cost.

That's why they worry and fret about the worst things that might happen. They might cry, throw temper tantrums, and refuse to take risks. This is how their worry protects them from harm. It stops them from trying, making mistakes, and being embarrassed. It keeps them safe from failing and feeling foolish.

     "I can't. I might fail"

But kids don't realize that anxiety also imprisons them with their negative thoughts and fearful feelings. It prevents them from experiencing the joys of accomplishment.

Find out what you can do. Practice the 11 simple steps to help your child overcome childhood anxieties.

The Mouthy Child: Gift - 9 Best Parenting Answers

Sass is dead if you say, "Stop sassing me!"              

Mom hands stopping
Stop Sassing Me!

Then you must show you mean it by following  through with consequences. The trick is to catch your child being rude as soon as she starts becoming sarcastic. Don't let it become a habit because it will be more difficult to change. Not impossible but more difficult.

You'll also need to ask your child to think ahead and tell you how he will respond in the future to avoid the sass. Insist on an answer. If your child refuses, use a consequence. 

Reacting to Rudeness

Don't return the sarcasm by saying, “I see you're rolling your eyeballs again. Did you ever find a brain back there?” Sarcastic replies invite volleys of mean-spirited sass. You want to cut it off not rev it up.

Make your goal to model respectful behavior when reacting to your child's obnoxious retorts. Make sure you look and feel in control of yourself even if you need to let time pass before you respond.

Responding to Sassiness:

Our parenting gift offers 9 answers to sassy sarcasm that you can easily use. If your youngster needs a stronger consequence, consider not doing something he wants you to do or taking something away that fits his sarcasm.

Sassy Behavior Video: Stop Kid's Sarcasm with 10 Parenting Tips

Sassy Child
Rude Behavior - Don't Accept It!

 

Many children use sassy behavior to get their way. If your child is rude to you and you want to stop it, watch our brief video, Sarcastic Behavior: 10 Positive Parenting Tips. Here’s one of the solutions:

Parenting Tip # 8

Tell your child exactly what to do to replace the sass.

“Repeat what you said but say it with respect.”

 For instance, she could answer:

  1. “I’m sorry for saying, ‘Do it yourself.’ I’ll set the table right now.”
  2. “I'm sorry I rolled my eyes when you told me to do my homework. Next time I’ll ask, ‘May I do my homework after dinner?’”
  3. “I shouldn’t have said, ‘Give me a break,’ when you asked me to carry in the groceries. I’ll get them now.”

Accept your youngster’s apology if you feel it is sincere. Otherwise, let her know that it still sounded rude and to try again.

If your child is younger, role-play the sass and then the better behavior. If she likes to draw, have her draw the sarcastic behavior and then the respectful conduct.

When she uses polite manners, be sure to compliment her. This may increase her politeness and decrease her disrespect.

Gift: Poetic Advice Child Leaders Must Learn

Bossy Leadership Poem
Learn the Secret to Becoming a Child Leader

NATURAL BORN CHILD LEADERS NEVER HEAR THIS, “You’re not the boss of me!” A child with leadership skills knows the secret within in our poem today. He knows bossiness doesn’t work. He also knows what the pushy child doesn't understand but can easily learn.

A True Leader

I remember a boy in elementary school named, Robert, who possessed this special ability. It worked so well that his fellow students made him their class president year after year.

When Robert entered a newly constructed high school, he became the student body president 3 years in a row. Today, I’ll share his secret with you through our simple poem.

Poetry Gift Includes:

This poetry gift comes with pictures and words to show what doesn’t work if your child wants to be a leader. The solution in the poem is easy and is the number one leadership skill your child must learn.

Who Can Be Leaders?

Can a shy child become a leader? Certainly! In fact, it may be easier for a shy child to come out of his shell than for a loud bossy kid to tone down his behavior.

What Is the Secret to Successful Leadership?

If you think the answer is “Listening” that’s only part of the answer. It all starts with a special kind of question.

Find out what that question is by downloading our gift at http://kidsdiscuss.com/subscriber-gifts.asp and by inserting the word CARING

Consider adding this poem to your 3-hole notebook to help your child whenever he or she needs it.

Gift for Parents: How Kids "Pitching In" Is a Leadership Skill

Boy helping
Helping Others Is the Key!

TO "PITCH IN" MEANS YOUR CHILD IS WILLING TO HELP. If you have a youngster who complains about tasks, his complaints can be a real drag at home and at school. How can you help him see the value of pitching in? Keep reading.

Real leaders don’t sit around basking in their leadership titles. True heads see the bigger picture and take action. One of their most important behaviors is to help others. How does this apply to your girl or boy?

The leadership attitude begins at home. To get children to help around your house, you might:

1. Use the phrase, “First this and then that…” First pick up your toys, and then we’ll play a board game (or whatever the motivating activity is). These powerful words avoid the complaining you detest and they increase your child’s willingness to help.

2. Find ways to compliment your child:

    "I appreciate the effort you made to complete your homework."

    "I like how you straightened your sheet before you finished making your bed."

    "Thank you for entertaining your baby brother while I fixed dinner."

    Children love honest compliments and appreciation.

3. Use stars and charts for a visual reminder of his or her helpfulness.

4. Create warm chats about leadership outside the home. Advise him to help his friend, a neighbor,  or look around his classroom and see what needs to be done like:

    Picking up toys when he and his friend have finished playing with them.

    Helping a pal with a task he needs to finish before he can play.

    Asking his teacher if he can clean the paint brushes after school.

    A child with an eye to seeing the bigger picture, the willingness to help, and then pitching in, is a leader in action.

Girl Helping Boy SMALL
Willingness to Help Is Leadership!


5. Ask your child to let you know when she helped others and increased her leadership skills. You are her confidant and guide. She’ll want you to know.

Your gift today lists 7 leadership skills. Find out what the other 6 are. Then think about how you can promote them in your child. If you do, you’ll be building her character and she’ll enjoy the good feeling of being an involved helper and leader.

Why not download all the leadership skills and put them in a 3-hole binder to use whenever you need them?

Click on http://kidsdiscuss.com/subscriber-gifts.asp and insert the code word, LEAD. Then download your gift.
