Managing Your Child’s Behavior
by Ruth Sunde, LICSW

Raising children can be difficult, and even downright maddening sometimes. Young children, in particular, can test the limits of our patience and our sanity. During normal human development stage around the age of two, a child begins to question the world around them. They begin to explore what happens when they say “no” to everything and everyone. They begin to touch and discover the world around them. They are becoming little scientists in the big laboratory we know as “life.”
As parents, we should work alongside them, gently guiding them as they work in that lab. And, in a sense, it is up to us, as the adults, to skew the data they get from their lab work. Their science experiments should be a learning opportunity where the child learns naturally from their mistakes. They are looking for a consistent, gentle, but firm, response from the parent. Where parents often become the “mad scientist” is when the child repeatedly engages in bad behavior. A steady diet of pouting, whining, badgering you, and royal temper tantrums can frazzle even the most patient parent.

The Fairchild Family Advocacy Office offers several different parenting classes. Here are some tips that many parenting models agree upon. Firstly, don’t let you child see your frustration or anger. This is difficult, because when a child is experimenting with the world around them, understand that you, as a parent, are a part of that experiment. Around the age of two and beyond, children begin to see that the parent has somethings that they want, namely things like money, independence, a car, or a phone. They are beginning to understand that they are inferior to you. The child now understands that there’s a hierarchy in the house. Thus, they will test the limits, pushing you to see where the boundaries are.
As a natural part of growth and development, the child now starts to test you, looking for a reaction from you like getting you to argue with them, barter with them for compliance or even getting you to beg them to stop the behavior. Because they don’t have all the things they see you have, they have now gotten what they want—a reaction from you. You are, ultimately, the only thing the child has any control over. Understand this is all part of the lab work. Engaging you with this kind of behavior does not mean they are destined for a life behind bars. Testing you is all a part of discovering and growing. It can be hard, but try to not to show your frustration or anger.

Secondly, abstain from talking too much. Don’t expect a child to comprehend anything you are saying to them while they are throwing a temper tantrum. Even as adults, we don’t think clearly when we’re mad or upset. Why would we think that reasoning with a child having a meltdown be any more productive? When the child engages us with excuses or other manipulative behavior, it simply gives them more ammo if we meet that behavior with reasons why they should do what we are asking of them.
Gentle but firm follow through now, is putting them in their room or having them sit quietly in a chair. Most parenting models agree that a timeout should be no more than one minute for every year they’ve been alive. As a child becomes older you can have them pick their punishment—perhaps going to bed 10 minutes early, less TV or screen time, or deducting from their allowance.

Both parenting modalities, 1-2-3 Magic and Love and Logic, taught by Family Advocacy personnel include the little emotion/little talking notion. This concept is then followed up with a firm, but gentle and consistent consequence to any bad behaviors.

Following these tips will help the child learn what is appropriate behavior and what is not. As they experiment, you are giving them the same responses to their experiments. These are just a few of the tips you can use as you watch your child grow in life. For more information about putting skills in your tool box concerning parenting or anger management, contact the 92d Medical Group Family Advocacy office at 247-2687.

Team Fairchild,

Although no measles cases have been confirmed in Spokane, a measles outbreak has been declared in Clark County and King County in western Washington state. The best way to protect yourself and your family is to get vaccinated against measles. Anyone who has not been immunized or has not had measles in the past is at risk. Individuals are advised to check their own and their children’s vaccination status and verify they are up to date with the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine.

The Measles virus is highly contagious and is spread through coughing and sneezing. Measles causes fever, runny nose, cough, red eyes, and sore throat, followed by a rash that spreads all over the body. If you believe you have symptoms of measles, do not come to the 92 MDG Clinic. Instead, stay home to help prevent the spread of disease and call the emergency department in advance (unless you are experiencing a medical emergency) before you go.

The attached CDC measles flyer includes the Top four things parents need to know about measles. If you any questions, please contact Public Health at 247-5757.
