When you’re feeling frustrated and overwhelmed with your kids and don’t know what to do, try asking if you can give them a hug. Hugging your kids during moments where you feel like you are losing composure can have a calming effect, reminding you of the loving bond you share. Focusing on physical and emotional connection not only helps you calm down, but it also shows your children that they are loved and cared for, which creates a better opportunity for effective discipline that promotes learning and growth.
