Parents can attest to the fact that when tested enough times, it is easy to lose your patience with your children. So how do you develop patience with your kids? Dr. Mini Tandon, Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, shares ideas for identifying the context of these situations to better navigate them in the future. The best thing you can do to be patient is to take care of yourself, including eating well, getting adequate sleep, finding time to relax, and even spending some time away from your children. By caring for and calming yourself, you are modeling good patience for your children to follow.
