Keeping calm when your children are out of sorts or disobeying is really a challenge. However, you are going to be so much more effective with your kids if you can stay calm. Your voice should appear unaffected by the current behavior. You stay calm. Give them clear directions or instructions on how you want them to behave, what you need them to do or how you are going to discipline them in the situation. I have found that when I lose my cool, things just seem to escalate to new levels and nothing is solved. Like I said, it’s hard. Sometimes I fail. It’s amazing how much more effective I can be when I am on top of this one simple tip.
