How to deal with children's quarrels
- Try not to find out who is the originator of the quarrel or fight, and do not take anyone's side. Instead, say, “It seems you are tired of each other, you need a break,” and make the fighters fight in different rooms.
- Help the children formulate complaints to each other and express their feelings. Do not be afraid of phrases like “I hate him”, specify: “I think you are very angry with your brother now, and you have a reason.”
- If the children did not share the toy or tablet, it is better to pick up the subject of the dispute. Offer the children the following solution: “You have 10 minutes to agree peacefully, if it doesn’t work out, I’ll leave it with me.”
- Regardless of age, each of the children needs your personal attention. At least two hours a week, devote one-on-one communication - games, talking, tactile contact.
The sooner you teach your child to pay attention to what other people feel, the more friends he will have. Psychologists have found that developed empathy (understanding the emotions of another, the ability to empathize with them) helps students to be more popular among peers.
By the way, in girls the level of empathy is usually higher than in boys.
