Kids are very vulnerable. They are prone to strong mood swings. You will never be able to understand what they feeling or thinking at any given moment. This becomes a strong reason to worry for the parents. Parents are not able to understand why their child upset and how to correct their child’s mood.
Kids are open to many outside forces like their school, friends, neighborhood friends, and internet etc who have a very strong impact on them. With so many things to be taken care by them and with very little maturity they usually feel the pressure and they develop the habit of having mood swings. Even they do not know why they are confused and how do they come out the situation. They are usually irritated and gradually they start cutting off from their family. Kids presume that their family will never be able to understand them.
There will be innumerable situations in the life of kid where they will have these mood swings. Not taking care of these mood swings may lead the kid to wrong paths because there is a strong possibility that they will not be able to take correct decisions during their mood swing. At the same time since parents too are busy with making the means available to the kids and the whole family they are not able to address the problem as and when required.
To address this problem or we may say to avoid the wrong things happening to the kids the parents firstly need to start establishing communication with their kids. Life is busy but a routine of 10-15 minutes talk everyday can be easily maintained. Parents need to win the confidence of their child. They need to be friends with them. Kids usually hesitate to talk to their parents.
They don’t open up about their problems with the parents. If parents are able to forward their hand of confidence to their kid and make them believe that they can be their kid’s friend and can take care of their problems then this problem of mood swings can be easily handled. Once the child starts to believe that they can talk to the parents about their problem and can get a logical solution to that then their emotional balance gets maintained in the perfect way.
Parents need to communicate their child on regular basis. Parents can even talk to their child about their own work, their daily routine. The kids start to feel comfortable with such communications. Parents should explain the things to their child by giving examples from their own life or from life of other people. This will help the child to understand that what they are feeling is quite normal.
Once such type of two way communications is established between parents and kids and once the kids start to have this assurance that his parents are there who will take their emotional needs, their problem of mood swings will be taken care automatically.
