Do you get upset when your child has a fight with their friends?
Don't get upset
Fights and disagreements are impossible to avoid in this world.
And Fights with friends teach children how to navigate the real world
When children learn to manage their emotions through Fights and disagreements
When they learn how to get along with others
They learn a very important lifeskill
But sometimes as loving parents we don't allow children to learn this life skill
Because it is difficult for us to see our child hurt and crying
We feel like -
1. Keeping our child away from children who fight
2. Stepping in and solving every fight.
If you want your child to learn the important lifeskill of getting along with others, don't do either of the above.
Instead when your child cries after a fight
Hold your child
Let them complain and cry
Empathize with their pain
Once they have calmed down they will be able to find a simple solution to the problem themselves.
What do you do when your child has a fight with their friends?
