It is true that some children cannot express their feelings. They can’t even talk about important things. Parents are offended by this habit. Experts say that the child acquires this habit from the home and its environment. If the parents scold him for everything or stop him for everything, then he starts to be silent. He refuses to express his words. He finds it pointless to speak his mind. If you also feel that your child is not able to express his feelings, then you should teach him how to teach the child to express his feelings. This is important for the development of the child’s personality.
We spoke to child psychologist Pooja Kapoor about what to do to tell your child.
1 Educate yourself before you teach
Pooja Kapoor says When you interrupt a child for any misbehavior, first check if you are doing the same. If you or your partner make this mistake, like answering loudly, staring at a stranger and running away from them, etc., your child will do the same. The child learns from what the parent does.
Instead of immediately reprimanding for any mistake, try to listen to the child with firmness, explain it. When you listen to them, they can also say something on their behalf. You can share your feelings.
2 A sense of family connection
Pooja says ‘If you are busy with your business and your partner is busy with his, the child will feel neglected. He feels that he has no importance in his home. This feeling prevents him from sharing his opinion. He can’t share his things even if he wants to.
Remember that this feeling makes the child emotionally weak. He begins to hide his mistakes. You tell him this and explain that every member of the family needs each other. Everyone should support each other in joy and sorrow. Talking to each other and listening to each other also strengthens the family bond.
3 The needs of relatives, neighbors and society
Tell the child how parents are important, in the same way that relatives, neighbors or strangers in the community are also very important.
A lack of either can upset the balance. If they do not mix with them, if they cannot express themselves among them, they will face many problems in the future.
4 Understand the nature of the child
Sometimes the child’s nature is also shy. He can’t interact with people much. Sometimes genes are also responsible for this.
If your child is also in this category, do not put too much pressure on him. When he grows up, he will figure things out for himself. Where he needs to express himself, he can.
