How to deal with the vagaries of the child? I would like to help them find the right way out of such situations. You must learn to identify when the tears of a child - it's just a children's tantrums and whims, and when - the alarm with which an adult child indicates that with him all is not well.   And if that's still the vagaries, why they occur and what to do to stop them? Quite often parents just do not know how to cope with children's whims.

What is the children's whims?

The word "whim" came to us from the French language and translates as "stubbornness, perseverance; fad, a fad. " In the "Dictionary of the practical psychologist" S.Yu.Golovina whim interpreted as: "... a fad, a fad without real need, need." A guide for parents slovare- (edited by LG and SG Chudova Guslyakova) states that children's tantrums and whims - a "feature of the child's behavior, as expressed in inappropriate and unreasonable actions in resisting unreasonable demands of adults, an effort to have his own. " Children's whims, usually accompanied by crying or even screaming child and the excitement expressed by sharp movements. The child stomps his feet, waving his arms and head, and sometimes may even fall to the floor.

In different ages and whims are different .  Baby cries often because any discomfort, and it is hardly a whim .  Rather, it is a request for help .  At the age of a year, three, five years of a child experiencing age crises, and these periods are bright with emotional reactions in children .  In times of crisis, the vagaries of age would be correct to take as half the natural psychological reaction .  At this time the child needs special approach and sensitive attitude .  But if adults correctly educate the child, the children's whims and tantrums are often the usual form of behavior .  Indeed, in the first years of life the child becomes aware of himself as an individual and is actively exploring the world around him .  Tiny everything you need to touch, drag in the mouth, to understand every thing about - what is it and how does it work? So it is with the parents - the child must be tested, as the senior will react to this or that behavior, what they will do, if you ignore their comments? And if, by experimenting with various forms of behavior, he was a welcome outcome for themselves, this way of behaving is remembered him as the most effective and is fixed in his mind .  So it turns out that adults because their mistakes are often themselves become guilty of the whims of their children .  And then begin to comprehend how to deal with children's whims .

Moodiness often spoiled, overly zalaskat children. Constant attention too tired baby, and if the child is happy at first, then later he even starts to cry often. This is a predictable reaction to the child's mental fatigue from the endless attention to adults, to which the baby responds whims. So, before you look for the answer to the question of how to cope with children's whims, it is necessary to evaluate their interaction with the baby.

The opposite extreme - when the child do not pay enough attention, treat him with indifference. The child begins to act up, trying to attract attention. And children who are sorely lacking maternal love and affection, often become irritable and begin to lag behind in development.

Another cause of the children's whims - is inconsistency or lack of unity in the requirements for the child. For example, if yesterday you were allowed to walk your baby poshlёpat puddles, and now suddenly banned, the bitter tears you will not escape! Or, for example, my mother more strict with their child than my grandmother, and many of the things that allowed my grandmother, my mother do forbid, the child will need quite a bit of time to understand that when Grandma can and capricious, and my mother, this number does not take place . Constantly adapting to each adult, the child begins to feel a great burden on the psyche and the nervous system, which invariably leads to breakdowns and whims. And adults can not work out a common strategy of how to deal with the vagaries of the child, because they do not have a common position.

Often moody there are children who do not know no limits. They have not formed the ability to restrain, control your desires and emotions. Therefore, it is important to teach a child in a timely manner to the necessary self-restraint. The word "impossible" is to be understood a little child one of the first. Of course, abuse can not be endless prohibitions. It is necessary to prohibit only what can actually cause harm to the child or what he can do harm.

Fairly common mistake parents become irrelevant characteristics of the child and the age requirements or methods of influence on him. So it happens that parents want their child that is not available to him because of his age, and the child is responsible for such a situation, the natural reaction - a whim, that in such a situation, and the caprice of some can not be named. Rather, it is a form of protest. To the parents did not commit such a mistake, we should have an idea of ​​the age characteristics of the child's mind the vagaries and peculiarities of each period of crisis. This knowledge will help them to understand and how to respond to the whims of the child and how to deal with children's whims.
