What do you do if you have little kids and they start getting fussy?
It can be incredibly frustrating, not to mention exhausting, dealing with a young child or toddler who finds it necessary to challenge your every request, act in a defiant manner, lose their temper, and be generally disruptive or annoying.
Though it is normal for children to get fussy or whiny sometimes, it's demanding and difficult at times. So here are common strategies to help you handle your fussy child.
Most parents know that if you make it fun, the odds go up that the kids will be cooperative. So make it exciting.
Offer your kids lots of little choices. When you offer choices, your kids feel like they have some control over the situation. Avoid questions like, "Do you want to go now or in 15 minutes?" because a fussy child will automatically say, "No! or choose the latter"
Ask questions like, “Do you want to sit on this chair or that chair?” Just make sure you can live with your child's choice before providing options. Quick and silly little questions will always do the trick rather than insisting on something that will push them to resist.
If offering choices doesn't work, then take over in a loving way.
