Being Aware Of The Emotions They Are Feeling You need to be aware of yourself and the emotions you carry. Understanding how you are feeling and what it triggers is key. Is it Frustration? Anger? Feeling of not being good enough? These can most often trigger fear of rejection. Assist your child with recognizing these feelings. Don’t push it under the rug. Bring it to the surface.

Follow These Tips:

*Help them Recognize  the feelings and emotions so eventually they will be able to do it on their own.

*Talk about why they may feel this way.

*What possible solutions there can be, if any.

Get to know this feeling so you can recognize it next time it comes up. This is a process that will help them for the rest of their lives. Always remember, “You have to feel it to heal it.”

 

Stand Up For Yourself When Someone is Not Treating You With Respect The first thing you must do is tell the other person to stop and that you don’t like it. It may stop or it may not. If it doesn’t you need to look at and understand why that person is acting that way. They are mostly likely not feeling good about themselves and need to bring you down to feel better. Start believing that what others say is a reflection of them and has nothing to do with you. You will gain instant peace and won’t take on the feeling and emotions of others that cause them to act the way they do.

 

People can change - just because you have a conflict doesn’t mean the friendship is over Some kids will change and some won’t. Forgiveness is a must so you don’t carry around hurt and anger. Always, always, always remember how someone made you feel. If you see a negative pattern continue, you need to walk away. You need to have enough respect for yourself and be strong enough to not let anyone treat you with disrespect.
