Yes, it is hard to see them suffer. I know. The children they believe that anything is possible. And suddenly one day, they see that it is not true. That you don't always win. That they can't have it all now, now. And suddenly they run into a new, devastating feeling: the frustration. And when frustration comes, they feel cheated, sunk. Unable to understand what is happening. And the crying, the Rage. What can we parents do?
Surely it has ever happened to some of you, just like me, that suddenly you are tempted to let them win in a game, thinking that perhaps they will suffer less. And yet we get the opposite effect. Because by sparing them the feeling of frustration, we leave them naked for the future.
And is that the frustration it is not bad. On the contrary, because it helps the child to realize that nothing happens because he does not achieve all the goals at the first change. The world does not end. You can try again. One, two, three times. Those that are necessary.
Frustration teaches. Teaches to overcome. To try harder for what you want. 'That you came last in the race? I know how you feel. But don't worry, because in the next one, or the next one, you won't be the last. '
And how do I help you? Motivating you! Increasing your self esteem. 'That you do not get the pine like your friends? Come on, let's practice. I'm sure you'll achieve it. You can do it'.
And I have always thought that positive reinforcement is the best teacher. The worst thing you can do in that moment of frustration is scold him, make him feel misunderstood and even humiliated. Never let him bow his head and sit sunken.
We cannot avoid frustration. It is something inherent to the human being. And parents who try to avoid it condemn their child unknowingly to the unhappiness. What about that kid they never say 'no' to? Who never set rules? Those who do not draw insurmountable limits. The one who makes everything easy and avoids challenges. Have you noticed those children? I look at them sadly, because I see in them an unhappy and violent adult. Because when he grows up, he won't know how to defend himself from frustration.
So I apply myself, like mother, these tips:
1. Let your child stumble and get up on his own.
2. Let him try again.
3. Have the child help you put the dishes even if one of them breaks.
4. Let him invent, let him dream. That he manages to fulfill some of his dreams and fail in others. Leave him.
The objective is well worth it. Don't you think
