To be child

How do you think is it important to put yourself on child's place in some situations? Sometimes we like adults are not able to understand some child's behaviour and actions but when you remember yourself in childhood you realize that you acted the same and it was ok for you. I think that it is good sometimes to look at the situation from the child's point of view.

i think for us it's difficult, because we live in other times then was child, but it's worth to try. when in some situations we imagine that if we were children then we can understand why your child do this or that.

yes, it is important to be on the same level with your child at the needed moment, in such way you will be able to understand your child better. it can help to build constructive dialogue and to understand what is wrong, to find the appropriate solution etc.

As I remember it is such method which is used during communication with a little children. When you are communicating in one and the same level it gives you ability to understand each other better and also it unites child and parent.

"All the adults had been children" (c) Antoine de Saint-Exupery. Of course, each parent should put himself on his child's place when it is possible. A toddler doesn't know why he cries even at the moment he cries, and of course he doesn't remember it when it is time for him to have his own children. But with teenagers the situation is different. We all remember our teenage years, and if most people are asked to describe this period using only one word, this word will be "complicated". But when our children become teenagers, we usually foget our own experience and repeat those mistakes which our parents used to make.

Put yourself on a child's p;lace but think as an adult. Of course, you remember yourself when you did the same things as your child does now and you considered them ok. But now, looking at them from the position of and adult, you see that it is not ok and you don't want your child to repeat your mistakes. So maybe you should be a little bit stricter (but don't shout and don't blame your child if he\she still does wrong, here remembering your own experiene will serve you well) and tell your child what is wrong in it and why it is better not to behave such a way.

Right, can you remember what it’s like to be a child? When you look back, you see those years through rose-colored glasses and it’s all happy memories. Do you watch how your children, nieces and nephews, or friends’ children interact with the world around them? It’s fascinating to watch, but you don’t just have to be a spectator! It's better to view everything through kids' eyes, because kids are fascinated by everything because it’s all new to them. They’re not jaded by what the world has to offer. Are you excited to wake up in the morning, or do you dread the morning commute, your lunch meeting, going to the grocery store after work? Children don’t feel this way. Every day is new to them, so everything seems exciting and full of possibilities. Instead of dreading the daily tasks you’re going to face, clear your mind and pretend you don’t know what to expect. Try to feel like each day is a clean slate and anything can happen!

I think that it is quite an important and neccessary thing to understand a child, look at the things through a child's eyes. Sometimes it is difficult for us to understand why a child is frustrated or sad. We should have conversations with our children all the time, try to understand their feelings, dreams and expectations. Of course, it may be difficult because we are adults and a child's world may be complicated, but it is worth trying, because children respect us not for just being their parents, but for the ability to understand them, support and help. When I was a teenager the world seemed to be very complex, but my parents helped me to understand the fact that everything passes by, the same is with difficulties.

Lanny, you are quite right. If we were adults every time there were problems with our children, then we would never understand what your children want to tell us in this or that situation. Be open with your child, and your child will be honest with you. Good luck!

i think sometimes we need it. I think the ability of a person, imagining to reality, to become in the place of another in any situation is a great talent, acquired by man over the years (although children have these unconscious)... but it is very painful in some cases... it takes will power. :side:
