- Is it ok to shout /yell at your toddler?
No and Yes. Most of the mothers do feel the necessity to yell or shout, partly because the whole daily routine of constant chasing and work would have tired them out. Your toddler won’t remember they have been shouted at for longer than 5 -10 minutes.
So if you found them playing with an electric charger or a scissor than shouting at them or rather raising your voice might do the trick for them to stay away. But it doesn’t guarantee anything as they do not remember much about the last time they messed up or got a scolding from you.
- Should You grant every wish that your kid demands?
Kids at the age of around 6-10, might ask you to buy them every nice thing they find. You too feel the desire to fulfil their wishes, especially when it comes to some expensive toy. Even when you are financially capable to do so, it is not advisable to do that every time. It leaves a wrong remark on them as they learn everything you teach them. Unknowingly you might be reflecting an image of the world where money buys happiness.
It is a strong statement and you might believe that they are incapable of grasping this strong concept at such an early age. They will so be a bit careful with buying them off with loads of gifts for small reasons.
- Leaving Your toddler with your older kid, Is it a smart decision?
No. You might trust your older kid so much that you believe them when they become capable of finishing their plate or even giving you a hand when you clean the house. But, it is a wrong impression that most parent develops about their older kid. Just because they act mature and responsible, they are still a kid and not an adult. We see many examples when parents leave their kids for an hour or two. It is absolutely unadvisable.
- Should You let your kid lay you a hand in work?
Sure. When it comes to household work, there is plenty of work that you can ask your kid to help you with. Handing you clothes while you reset your wardrobe or grabbing something quick from the bedroom that you just forgot to pick. This helps your kid learn, organization, helping people etc.
- Leaving your kid with a relative.
It is a purely situational base decision. Do you know this for a fact that an uncle or an Ant is worthy of the trust and faith you put on them for taking care of your kid? If yes, then sure. However, it is advisable not to do so.
- When to start sending your school to kid and when to start home tutoring?
The perfect age to send them to have their first professional learning experience is 3-4 to kindergarten. By the age of 5-6, they should join primary education. School do cover everything your kid needs to learn during the age of 6-10. If your child needs a special attention in his/her academics even after school, try tutoring them yourselves before you find a tutor outside. It does create a bond between your kid when he /she feels insecure about their quality in studies. It will help you understand what your kid needs too.
