Hi My kid is 6yr old boy. I am very much worried about his behavior. As the toxic situations in the house arise sometimes, as his father yells at any missed things by me in the daily routine, i am worried how this would impact my kid's mentalality. I keep telling to my kid about respecting others opinions , but how far only my words would be considered by him but not the situationd at home are in the way said by me. please suggest the ways how can i mould my kid not being like another toxic person. great thanks in advance.child-psychology Corner
Children do as they see. Hence your behaviour would also have its impact on him. If he exhibits aggressive behaviour then you could talk to him and brainstorm for alternatives. Simply telling will not work. Use stories. Also if he ever asks if his father’s aggression is wrong then do stick to the truth and say yes. Do not defend. Or less he will be confused. When your husband is in a better mood do try to make him understand. Maybe he needs anger management tips or therapy. Also do check if he has blood pressure issues because that can trigger anger. You need to take a firm stand on how you are being treated too. It would send negative signals on how to treat the female gender. So your rapport with your son ought to be very strong. Everyday spend quality time with him building your communication. That way he will be your support too. Take care.
