Slowing Down the Restless Child

Children’s behavior can sometimes get out

of control, and tactics you use to calm them may not be working.

Here are a couple of suggestions for those times both you and your child need to quiet down and regain control.

Read to her. Is there a favorite book she loves to hear? Take the opportuni- ty to sit close, and touch her arm or

shoulder.

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 reasons why.
