We tell you how you can change the behavior of your children starting by changing yours with mindfulness.
Change your mentality with Mindfulness to change the behavior of the children
Really in the present there is not so much stress. Anxiety comes from things that happened or that have not yet happened. Therefore, if Mindfulness helps us live in the present, anxiety and anguish are largely avoided. And this in turn generates calm and eliminates stress.
When a father or mother is experiencing a stressful situation with their child, what we should do is focus on us as adults. If the girl, for example, has a tantrum, the father and the mother, as adults, are the ones who must 'sustain' that tantrum. At that time the girl can not stop to breathe. There, if the father practices Mindfulness, the first thing he does is:
- Stop and think about what he is feeling emotionally. Do I feel anger, impotence, fatigue ...?
- Analyze the thoughts at that moment. I think she is a spoiled girl, that she is capricious ...?
- I realize, I breathe ... and I can see that tantrum from another side.
And maybe what comes up is either holding her in her arms, caressing her or waiting next to her ... and what you're doing is doing it from an important consciousness. You are doing what you want to do, and you do not lose the papers, because you are able to distance yourself and see it from another point of view. Tantrums are passed.
Parents who practice Mindfulness are able to change everything around them. At the moment when a father with children with tantrums practice MIndfulness, temper tantrums diminish. If your behavior changes, the behavior of the other changes. It is the effect of Mindfulness.
