How to Handle Strong Willed Kids Even Through Quarantine

April 14, 2020

Hang in there Mama's!

 

This too shall pass.

 

Here are my light bulb moments during this interview:

 

1. You know your kids, so be realistic about their schedule. Break activities into focus-able chunks of time (based on their age) and then allow them free time. Have a loose schedule so there is some sense of certainty in the midst of all the chaos.

 

2. Do something to make yourself feel human. . . put on lipstick.

 

3. Give your strong willed kids a choice, do you want to do your assignment now or in 10 minutes? Let them feel understood, let them have a little control, celebrate their wins.

 

I'm laughing at "cooked carrots or raw carrots! You get to choose". . . but you are eating a vegetable!
