Why do your children act up in the negative? How can you change their behavior for the positive? Have you ever studied your pets behavior? If you have answered yes or no to any of these questions, read on.
I recently have been dog and cat sitting my sister’s pets. She had been away from home on various business trips. I have been around her pets for years. She was always there for her pets in the past. She received love and affection from them without asking for anything in return. They were her pets and they loved to be with her and their behavior was typical. What hit me right between the eyes was her animal’s behavior now after she had been gone for a length of time.
When I walked into the backyard her dog came zooming over to me from whatever part of the large yard she happened to be in. I would pet her, I would feed her. I found out the most astonishing thing. She was more interested in me petting her and talking to her then she was interested in eating.
Even her cat who had always been very independent and never really cared for affection of any kind from humans was there to receive his share of petting.
This simple logic applies to your children. They want ATTENTION, AFFECTION and to feel SAFE from their parents. That is the simple answer.
Yes, when you come home from work you are stressed and exhausted. Yes, you do not have the time to really make your time special with each individual child.
When you walk in the door – stop - smile at them - they will probably come running when they hear you walk in the door. If they are older - plugged into the television - computer - video games - make the effort to walk over to them - give them a big hug. Tell your children you love them and missed them terribly during the day. See if that will help turn their negative behavior into positive behavior.
You can always make a special time for each child each week. This will be your special time together. This will be something you and your child can look forward to each week. Another suggestion is read to your child at bedtime. Your children are only small for a short time.
