Is your child acting up?
Are you about to lose your shite?
Be the bigger person.
Remain being the adult in the situation at all times.
First things first;
Be cool and in control for most of the time anyway.
(I say most, because somedays we lose our shit, that’s okay, we are only chimps after all)
If shit hits the fan with you and your child, which it will. They will test you beyond belief.
And if you lose your cool – the road to recovery can be a long journey to get back to the main road. So stay neutral.
Your child needs someone who they can come to when feelings beyond there comprehension are abundant.
HUG A HULK
For those who don’t know who the Hulk is, firstly where have you been hiding? Have you been locked away in the basement or living the Amish way of life?
The Hulk, scientist Dr. Bruce Banner is an all round nice chap.
However, as soon as Banner becomes a little aggravated, a red mist descends upon this passive fellow and he transcends into one giant green meathead son of a bitch.
Your child is just like Banner.
Like Banner who’s superpower is fuelled by his uncontrollable rage.
Your lil legs will be happy until their uncontrollable laying dormant feelings erupt.
So how can we help?
Whilst being empathetic hug your over emotional Hulk.
Show your child that you love them, it doesnt have to be in some tree hugging hippy fucktarded way.
This will convey to your lil amigo that not only do you give a shit, but you’re their anchor in this chaotic fucked thing we call life.
After all you’re their safe space. Their light house to help navigate them and to keep them on track.
If you don’t help them, not only to become social, mannered and masters of their own feelings, then they will only turn into feral meanders.
