Note to parents: how to calm crying children
Children are happiness for loving parents, because only they are the most important value in the life of many people. But how often children's eyes are filled with tears, and then they hear plaintive sobbing! The reason for the child's crying largely depends on his age. Accordingly, we need different approaches and ways to calm the baby.
How to calm a newborn
The crying of the newborn expresses any requirement of the child, because he has not yet learned how to formulate his desires in another way.Parents eventually start to understand their baby by the nature of crying, because it can be caused by pain in the tummy, colic, the desire to eat or sleep, the inconvenience of the posed pose or the soiled diaper. It is also known that the baby is used to wiggle inside the mother. Being in the uterus, he felt secure when he heard the uniform noise and heartbeat of my mother's heart. Therefore, to calm the newborn crying children should include them quiet quiet music or any household appliances. The sound of a working vacuum cleaner or washing machine can distract a baby, and a tight swaddling (only in the hands) will save him from unnecessary swings and possible injuries. Instinctively, parents start to rock the baby, press it to themselves, and this is very correct. Close contact is necessary for a child of any age, so that he feels care. Breastfeeding or a pacifier also helps, which distracts the baby from the cause of anxiety. But if you suspect that the newborn is disturbed by colic, it is worth consulting with a doctor and, probably, giving the child prescribed medications.
How to soothe a child older
When children begin to talk and actively gesticulate, it becomes much easier for parents to understand their child. But even at such an age, crying can not be avoided. The main thing is to determine the cause of the frustration of crying children, and then to act.It happens that the child is hurt or hurt, he fell, hit, got scared or hurt. In this case, it is necessary to come to his aid, to pity, hug, pat on the head and say comforting words. But there are cases when a baby cries because of whims, he wants to get what he wants, some thing that parents do not allow to take, can not buy, etc. What if the baby cries so? In any case, do not go at his expense, do not give candy and sweets, do not spoil. You need to try to calm yourself, and then divert his attention to something else. You can do something unexpected for him, for example, put in a warm bath. In an extreme case, when nothing helps, you can just leave your baby alone with him, he will outgrow enough, and then imperceptibly begin to play, because children will not cry for a long time when no one looks at them and does not react.
How to teach crying children to solve conflicts
When the baby begins to go to kindergarten, he gets into the team, learns to play with other children, change toys, help others. However, it often happens that children need the same machine, they do not want to share, as a consequence - the child cries in the kindergarten. In this case, the educator, having work experience, will help the children to get out of the conflict situation, offer solutions. After all, a child who does not have a brother or sister, will not learn this house alone. The most important thing for parents of crying children is to try to be calm and balanced themselves during childhood hysteria, then this condition will be passed on to the children.
