Slowing Down the Restless Child

Children’s behavior can sometimes get out of control, and whatever tactics you use to calm them down just don’t work. Here are a couple of suggestions for those times that may provide both you and your child with space to quiet
down and regain control.

  • Read to her. Is there a favorite book she loves to hear? Take the opportunity to sit close to her as you read.
  • Tell her stories about herself when she was young, and stories about
    yourself when you were her age.
  • Keep a collection of colored chalk or magic markers that are used only on special occasions such as “quiet time.”
  • Remind your child that you love her. Tell her at least two good reasons why.
