Kids Can Cause Stress

Being a parent can be very stressful considering how easily your kids can cause you stress. It's easy to get stressed out when your kids are set on controlling you. You need to break the cycle and regain control. You can start by learning to say no and by staying calm no matter how they react.

Just say no!
Kids tend to become more and more demanding based on how often they get their way. When you see a child in a public place who is throwing a tantrum it is very often their way of controlling the parent in order to get what they want. This cycle causes stress and embarrassment to the parent and often the easiest way to make it go away is to give the child what they want.

This is a temporary fix that will result in future similar situations of stress. It can be very hard to break this cycle once it starts. Therefore new parents must nip this issue in the bud before it ever gets a chance to bloom. It is however possible to break the cycle if you have the determination to take control of the situation.

Control The Situation
One way to control the situation and break the cycle is not to give in. Additionally, there should be some repercussions later on for the child such as no dessert, no television or an earlier bed time. If you can weather the storm and stay strict with the punishment, you stand a chance to shift the power in these stressful situations and start on the path to happier, less stressful parenting.
