How to handle your child's relationship with other children
We can never be children again but we learned that being a kid we need to socialize with our own peers too. As children we want to get involved and be noticed. We want to amaze other children in many ways so that we can make friends with them. We will take our toys with us and let other children in the neighborhood be entertained with it to gain friendship.
Parents get hurt if sometimes they find out that their kids became the subject of ridicules with other children. If you are just new as parents, you should be aware to know the situations like this are normal among children and can hardly be avoided. As a young parent, you must understand the children’s behavior to avoid creating a gap between the other parents too.
There is exception however, if parents discovered that their kid is often ridiculed and hurt by other children, there is something wrong and being a parent should come to the rescue of your kid to get him out of getting very depressed and so that he may not feels he is left alone. If your kid often comes home crying and hurt by other children habitually, it is not normal for parents to ignore and ask what is going on with his kid.
When your kid is rejected in this manner you are badly needed as a friend to him and as parents you are obliged to do it when other children ridicule him. In this regard, you do not fail as most parents fail most often because the line of communication is not open. It is fair and not odd to get engage with children’s relationship with other children.
Let parents listen when his child talk. Ignore trying to tell him non sense things that it doesn’t hurt or it's silly to be sensitive instead ask the kid if he knows what it is that his “friends” don’t like. He may be causing their reaction by dominance, selfishness, or dishonesty. Be understanding as parents and sympathetic without weeping in mutual despair.
Give time as appropriate to get involve with your kid in a game or some other activity which he will enjoy. And finally, set out about resolving the underlying cause. Children may be happy to share and talk freely without hesitation especially the complexity he is facing while playing with the other kids.
It is best to advise that parents ask their children to invite one of his friends to go on a picnic with your family or you may offer other kinds of attractive “bait.” Real and genuine friendships often develop from such foundation. Even the intimidating children in the neighborhood may be more kind when only one of them is invited at a time. Not only can you help your child make friends this way, but you can also observe the social mistakes he is making to drive them away. This information can be used later to help him improve his relationship with others.
This way, parents are sending a message and building a solid relationship with their children. It will be carried on while the children are growing up. There is feeling of happiness if your children are pleased. And when kids are grown up they will remember so well how their parents handle the situations that can be passed on to their kids someday.
