All people are different, each has his own character and temperament, which begins to manifest itself, as they say, from young nails. This is easily seen by watching the game of kids in the sandbox.
Therefore, each child needs an individual approach. If it sometimes seems to you (and maybe not sometimes) that you take part in the filming of the remake of the film Difficult Child or Denis the Tormentor, then I am sure you will be interested in this topic.
Lena – Sasha’s mom
On the playground, we have formed a small company of moms and dads of children from 1 to 3 years. We walk with children and talk on topics of concern to us concerning the education of our karapuz.
There is in our company a fine little boy of one and a half years named Sasha. He has an angelic look and smile, but the look of his mom indicates that there is some kind of trick in the whole of angels.
No, she looks immaculately: she always has the perfect manicure – a pedicure, impeccable makeup, hairstyle and neat clothes. She can not be seen with a dirty head or stretched sports pants, which is what some mothers sin. The only thing that spoils her appearance is bags under the eyes and chronic fatigue.
This is due, as Lena herself believes, her son. Sasha easily plucks out any plug from the socket and tries to insert a kitchen plug. With Tarzan’s mastery, he climbs the windows of the central heating onto the windowsill and deftly opens the window.
These and millions of other pranks bring Sasha’s parents to a nervous tic, but the worst thing is that Sasha does not sleep. No, he falls asleep at eight in the evening and wakes up at four in the morning, and then sleeps two more times during the day. For Lena, who used to go to bed after one in the morning, such a schedule does not allow her to fully relax.
My daughter Vlada
My daughter, too, in this regard, is not much different from Sasha. Sometimes it seems to me that I have not one child, but at least ten. I feel like a monkey from a cartoon that only dealt with those that ran after their children, correcting the results of their self-indulgence.
Still, I managed to find some ways to save my nerves and cope with my difficult child.
The first – To get enough sleep, you need to sleep. The regime should be not only the child, but also the mother. I do not stay at the computer after eleven, but my daughter also sleeps soundly at night because she has one day sleep. And even if my daughter did not sleep well at night, I would spit on a mountain of dirty dishes in the sink and lay down to rest with her during the day.
The second – pranks will be: this is my child. I can prevent most of them only by being near my daughter. Therefore, I learned to cook, wash, stroke, wash the floors in two to three hours of daytime daughter’s sleep. The rest of the time I devote to the child.
Third – yes to scientific and technical progress. We are in a better situation than our mothers. Modern household appliances have significantly simplified our lives, but do not forget about innovations for the safety of the child: plugs on the sockets with a key, blockers and latches of the doors of the cabinet and doors, silicone linings on sharp corners, etc. Yes, all this costs money, but the nerves of the mother and the safety of the child are more expensive.
These are my simple rules for preventing daughter pranks. I want all her tricks to leave memories that would cause a smile, and not a nervous twitching of the eyes.
Maybe some of you who have passed this stage in the life of children will be able to advise something else to me, Lena (Sasha’s mother) and other moms of active children?
