5 Ways To Be A More Patient Parent

5 Ways To Be A More Patient Parent

The power of patience helps us deal calmly and rationally with day-to-day problems.😌 It lets us stay focused on the "bigger picture" and not get bogged down by daily hassles.⁠

Here are 5 ways to be a more patient parent:⁠ 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻

1️⃣ Knowing Your Breaking Point⁠
Take a few moments alone and do a little self-evaluation of what your triggers and breaking points are throughout the day.📖⁠

2️⃣ Pretend You Have an Audience⁠
Imagine losing your cool with your kids infront of your their teacher? It will make you try to pull it together as quickly as possible. You’re less likely to overreact with your child if someone’s there watching your every move. 😇⁠

3️⃣ Visualize & Meditate⁠
Start visualizing that each time a wave broke and went back out to sea, it is taking your stress and worries away.🌊 If not, take deep breaths when tension starts to build, to get you relaxed and invoke patience into your busy life. 🌬️⁠

4️⃣ Take Care of Your Own Needs⁠
Take time to do things you enjoy.⏰ Like doing activities outside your home or a date night with your partner, it helps to recharge your battery.🔋⁠

5️⃣ Practice Patience Daily⁠
Find a quote that you can recite when you feel yourself getting edgy. For example, “This Too Shall Pass.” Repeat it and remind yourself consistently so that it becomes a part of your everyday life. 🍀⁠

When you do catch yourself practicing a bit more patience, pat yourself on the back and realise that you can continue this and instead of reacting with anger, teach yourself to react with love and laughter. 😁⁠

You’ll feel better about how you interact with your kids, even when they’re getting on your nerves, and at the same time, you’ll be teaching your kids this valuable practice for themselves. ❤️⁠
