When it comes to parenting, having children who squabble and argue can be difficult. It may seem like an endlessly frustrating cycle of bickering and shouting that never ends. Despite how challenging it can be in the moment, there is a way to manage these situations without losing your temper or getting bogged down in the conflict. That way is to choose not to wobble.
It’s important for parents to remain calm and composed when their children are quarreling with one another. Instead of engaging with them while they’re still upset, take a step back and give both parties some space. This will help them settle down so you can talk about the issue more objectively and come up with solutions together as a family.
