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 time and 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
• Tell her stories about herself when she was younger, 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.
