When you have a child, it is normal for many things to change in the parents’ lives . Thus, they must adapt their home to the arrival of the baby, as well as many of their lifestyle habits, in order to provide their child with the best for the present , but also for the future years that are to come. . Therefore, it will be a mutual learning , on the part of the baby that will grow and acquire much of the knowledge from his parents, and on the part of the parents, who must also learn day after day what is the best way to care and educate their children with such that the skills necessary to be able to develop properly in the world, so that they can have a good future, be happy and have healthy relationships both with others and with themselves .

Thus, it will not only be about buying material things so that children feel comfortable, but also about providing them with a good education and ensuring that they will be autonomous and happy in the future in terms of managing their emotions . Little by little, as the child grows, he will realize that he has a series of sensations that he will not always be able to control , so it will be the parents who must teach him, with patience, empathy and perseverance, to recognize each one of these emotions , both positive and not so positive, and manage them, so that unnecessary suffering or misunderstandings with the people around them can be avoided .

A natural process

It is normal for children, as they grow up, to have many and diverse emotions , both positive, negative and neutral, from their most recent childhood. This is because it is a natural process that all human beings live and that parents must respect. Your children should have negative emotions in order to understand what they are , to be able to classify them as such and try to manage in the best possible way in order to avoid them or not suffer because of them . If children are not allowed to have these emotions in infancy, they will be unable to recognize them when they are older and, therefore, to manage them appropriately. or try to avoid them when they are older, which can cause misunderstandings with others or unwanted situations.

Thus, as children grow up, they should experience the different emotions that they may have in life and parents should not overprotect them. Those negative ones may make them suffer temporarily, but it will also teach them that they will not always be able to feel happy, since sometimes they will have to face situations that can generate these negative emotions , with which they will have to learn to deal in a way that does not make them suffer. excessively or cause problems or conflicts with the people around them.

In the same way, they must also learn to manage those positive emotions that can make them extremely excited. It is during childhood that children should also learn that extreme happiness or that which greatly excites them must also be controlled, since there are situations in which they can be very happy, but there is no need to scream or run. , for instance. As well as situations that generate neutral emotions, that is, that are not extreme and that does not mean that they feel good or bad, simply that each person is different and that each of us manages and regulates emotions in a different way and totally lawful , as long as we feel happy andat ease with ourselves and respect those around us.

A fluent communication

Talking about emotions is one of the best ways to help your child understand, recognize and manage them properly. Nowadays it does not have to be a problem for parents to be able to talk about the different emotions that the child may have throughout his childhood and later in his adult life. There is nothing wrong with crying if you feel tired, something has hurt you emotionally, or you feel angry. The fact of crying will help you channel part of these negative emotions and perhaps help you to calm down , organize your ideas and, later, be able to find a solution to the cause that has made you feel bad , in order to improve these negative emotions and turn them into positive or neutral for the future.

The fact of being able to talk about their emotions with their parents will surely make them trust them more , so they will feel more united and will be able to help each other when it comes to managing positive, negative or neutral emotions. In the same way, it would be convenient for the parents to also make the child participate in their emotions, so that they see that we all have a different way of feeling , making them understand, accept them and become aware that each individual has a different feeling and that we must respect each other and try to understand each other in order to be happy and live properly in society.
