Does your household resemble a war zone?

Johnny pulled Jill's hair, so Jill hits Johnny, they're both crying, the dog is barking, dinner's late, and you aren't sure whether to scream or run away. It's not you, and you're not a bad parent. This scenario plays out in millions of homes around the world, and has for eons. But that doesn't mean you have to accept it. 

Don't Compare 
Never compare your children with each other or anyone else. Doing so sets the stage for jealousy and resentment.
Recognize the strengths and weaknesses of each child, but never assign any term indicating, "better" or "worse." Steer clear of comments such as, "his room is always cleaner," or "she always makes better grades."

Give Them One-on-One 
This is difficult for stay-at-home parents, and next to impossible for working moms and dads. Even if you can only spend a few hours one weekend with one child and a few hours the next weekend with the other, make special time for each so they all feel important.

Don't Let Arguing Escalate 
Stop arguments before they get out of hand. As soon as one negative or insightful comment is made, put your foot down. This eliminates problems escalating out of hand.

Don't Let Them Get too Tired 
Sleepy kids, hungry kids, and thirsty kids are irritable with everyone, especially each other. Try to establish consistent eating and sleeping times, and incorporate healthy snacks regularly so nobody gets too cranky to control their tongues and their fists.

Don't Expect Too Much or Too Little
It's natural to expect a lot out of older kids, and very little from younger ones. But this isn't fair, and fosters resentment. Don't give the oldest too much responsibility, or fail to give the younger one any at all.

Teach Problem-Solving Skills
Even at an early age, kids can learn to name their feelings and express them in healthy ways. Teach your kids what it means to be mad, sad, jealous, or just feel bad. Then train them to express this in a positive way instead of resorting to name calling, pinching, and biting.

Demand Respect
Respect should be a demand on every family member by every family member. Show respect to others, including your spouse and kids, and require them to respect each other. This includes respecting their belongings, their time, and their point of view. For extra guidance on how to do this, talk to one of best psychics.

Build a Team
Look for team-building exercises to help kids learn to work together instead of against each other. Great exercises include scavenger hunts (parents versus kids), a family hiking trip, camping together, cooking together, and trust falls.
Avoid games and activities that pit them against each other, such as Monopoly or Scrabble.

Set a Good Example
The best teacher in the world is a good example. Do you yell at other drivers in traffic? Do you snap at the waitress when you eat out? Are you quick to get angry with the sales clerk in the supermarket?

Then you're setting a quick-tempered, low-tolerance example for your kids. If you want them to behave a certain way, make sure they have a model of this behavior to look to--you.

Family drama is part of life, but learning to handle it effectively makes it possible for every family to live in peace and harmony - for the most part, anyway. If you are still stressed about your family life, consider consulting a phone psychic for guidance.
