My daughter is 9 years old. I don't see her doing any daily course on her own perfectly.. everything needs to be instructed.. like, while brushing the teeth, taking proper bath, getting things ready for the next day's school etc etc... I am still Ok with giving these instructions daily.. problem is, things don't move unless we tell her each and every thing multiple times and we lose patience.... if we raise our voice, she does not try to understand what we expect from her.. instead cries saying all of us simply shout at her all the time!!! very difficult to get along with!!education Corner
Dear Tripthi, Create posters on her daily routine and put it up in her room or in the bathroom. Prepare a checklist beside the posters. Let her tick the activities when she completes. Many children and parents do this and it has proven successful. This helps them to self rate and activities get done. Your child needs a little more reminders than others so this will be useful. Also give her preparation time. When she does not do something, ask her,' You have to do this... would you do it now or 10 minutes later?' And give her the option. Patience and warmth will help in tackling this. Atthis age she is trying to assert her individuality .So please remain calm. If you get upset she learns that behavoiur from you and increases her tantrums.
