Re-work on Expectations
Sometimes we expect our kids to act like a grown-up which will ultimately lead to no result from there side and we end up shouting. Sadly, but it is sometimes our parenting that affects our kids’ upbringing severely.
Just do one thing, work out on your expectations. Like expect your child to be obedient but not cent per cent obedient; expect them to complete their work on time but don’t be too harsh if once in a while they don’t follow your advice.
Being fully aware of yourself is key to a happy mood. Once you understand your pattern of getting angry, how frequently do you get angry, etc. then you can easily control that and calm down in such situations. This way you can also bond with others in a happier way.
