Stay Calm

So, what’s the remedy? 

Stay calm! Do not go with the wind-up. Saying no, walking away, and REFUSING TO ENGAGE in such confrontations are good ways to deal with the situation.  

We may have to repeat this process a few times before they get the message, but it won’t take long provided we are consistent and absolutely refuse to be bamboozled into giving in. Simply stick to the principle that you will not engage in confrontations and don’t If appropriate, you may offer to discuss things later when they (and you) can be reasonable.  

Stay strong!  

Sentimentality and giving in never teach children to develop reason and common sense or to deal with the disappointments that life will present.  

They grow into reasonable beings by having boundaries and rules based on reason, which they and we stick to. This leads to harmonious living with our children and trains them to become mature adults.
