If running away is a regular problem, avoid confusing them by playing running away games. Otherwise how will they know when it’s not a game?
Have consequences ready and follow through immediately. e.g. Scoop them up and carry them to the car if they refuse to hold your hand. They may kick and scream, but getting hit by a car is much worse!
Over it? Use your phone timer to set a time limit for a play activity – your full attention for five minutes is better than half pai for longer.
Had enough? You may feel like you need alcohol or drugs to relax – but they often make the situation worse, especially when you have to deal with kids. Who could help you cut down or cut it out?
