Hysteria in a child of three years: reasons and advice to parents
Baby hysteria is a problem for many parents.
They come and go suddenly, it seems that even without reason, but they give a lot of excitement to all moms and dads.
Is it possible to prevent tantrums in a child? How to react if the child has hysterics? Today we’ll talk about this in our article.
Hysterics This is a state of strong nervous excitation, which leads to loss of self-control.
In children, tantrums often occur at the age of from one year to four years. Children’s tantrums are usually accompanied by a loud cry, crying, a child can wave his hands, knock on legs, roll on the floor.
In this state, the child can not adequately perceive reality, often he does not hear what he is told, so traditional methods of comfort do not help.
Elena Makarenko, psychologist, author and host of trainings for parents: It must be understood that hysteria is one of the ways of manipulating you. Kids are very smart, they choose ways how parents can be manipulated to achieve their goal. If mom is being hysterical, then this is an excellent method of achieving the goal for the child.
1. It is better to prevent a hysteria. If you see that the kid is naughty, distract him, find out what he is unhappy with, try to eliminate the cause of irritation. Remember that the distraction method works fine only if the hysteria is just beginning. If it is already in full swing, that way will not help.
2. Give the child to understand that you do not perceive hysterics, tantrums do not affect you, they will not help change your decision or attitude to anything.
Elena Makarenko, psychologist, author and host of trainings for parents: How to react to a hysterics? If the hysterics are not yet very strong, I suggest saying: Sunny, I do not understand what you want from me, when you scream, I do not hear what you want, say calmly. If the hysterics is already strong, then the parent should leave the room where the child is, let him scream alone, understand that they do not react to him. When he calms down, talk to the baby, explain that you do not understand when he screams. Ask him not to do so, but to speak calmly.
