The After Effects of Losing Your Patience on Your Child


In the 21st century, when we are all caught in unrealistic rat races and where making time to pace up in a rapidly evolving and fast-paced world has become a must, the last thing we can remain consistent with is being patient. Now if you are a parent, it becomes all the more challenging for you because you wouldn’t ever want to lose your patience on your child. In fact, you need to try your best to remain patient around and with your children, no matter how they act or react.

At Gurukul The School, one of the best school in Ghaziabad, we understand the gravity of the problem, and this is exactly why we do not just keep our students well-regulated beyond school but also keep speaking to the parents of our pupils to ensure that they do not have trouble being patient with their children.

Today, in this article below, we will shed light on why it is important for parents to keep a check on their behavior around their kids and why they need to remain calm and composed with their children. So, let’s delve in without any further ado.

  • You can’t fail to lead by example:

We at Gurukul The School keep having regular parent-teacher meets. In one of the recent meets, one of the prime concerns of most parents was about the patience level of their children. All of them wanted to see their children exercising patience in life. However, what many miss to keep a note of is how they themselves are dealing with their kids.

On that note, we would like to take this opportunity to remind parents as to how important it is for you to remain patient with your children. If you, as a parent, lose your cool on your kids pretty often and start getting impatient every now and then, it is important for you to know that you are setting a wrong example for your kids.

Having said that, we understand that the last thing any parent would want is to teach wrong things to their children. Hence, keeping a check on self-behavior is crucial.

  • You may scare your child:

Whenever a parent ends up losing patience on their kids, the reaction generally remains a highly unpleasant one. While one parent might choose to cut off communication with the child temporarily, another parent might resort to scolding the child.

Amidst this, the tuning between the parent and the child gets disturbed. Eventually, the child may even choose to go into a shell solely out of fear. A bond so surreal doesn’t deserve this kind of damage. Isn’t it?

  • You create space for parenting guilt to seep in:

We at Gurukul The School understand that the ultimate goal of every parent is to ensure the well-being of their child while enjoying a 10 on 10 on the parenting front. However, in reality, parenting is highly subjective. What might hold relevant for one parent may or may not mean anything for another. In spite of that, most parents have set parenting standards for themselves, which, if not met, parents get struck by parenting guilt.

Thus, it is important for you to understand that, as a human, losing patience is something very normal. What’s actually important is how well you tackle the situation. Every time a parent loses his/her patience with their children, they start feeling guilty about their actions. To keep this guilt at bay, it is ideal for parents to encourage free communication with children, be open to answering questions and taking feedback, and above all, work continuously towards nurturing the parent-child bond.

  • The real message may get destroyed:

Most times, when parents lose their patience around children, it is either because they are trying to pass on an important piece of information or looking to correct children’s ill behavior.

When something like this happens, parents tend to lose their patience and end up reacting in ways they shouldn’t have. Of course, we just spoke about the guilt that follows, but we cannot but miss out on the real message that gets distorted in the process.

Say your child is spending a lot of time playing games and watching videos on the mobile phone. Now you are trying to talk your children out of these not so healthy actions. Instead of cooperating, your child simply chooses to continue with his/her antics leading to you losing your patience and deciding not to class your child any further. The end result, in this case, is that your child will fail to mend his/her ways.

Patience is Your Superpower – Keep Hold of the Same!

In today’s day and age, the amount one has in his/her bank account or the titles one holds in the corporate world are considered real superpowers. However, there are a few humanly traits that we completely miss out on, one of which is patience.

At Gurukul The School, ranked among the top schools in Ghaziabad, our learning module is based on 5 core parameters, one of which is Life Skills. The agenda here is to help children imbibe traits like patience while not skipping to highlight its importance. After all, patience is nothing less than a superpower that every individual should work towards nurturing
