Hamburg » Is there more quarrel in your family at the moment than usual? That is normal. But you can do something about it. For example, come up with a project with your family. You then work on that together. This is suggested by child psychologist and therapist Marion Pothmann. And she has other tips.
According to the expert, the reason why more disputes are currently taking place in some cases is the overall situation: the children miss their friends, the parents have to work. “Many are worried and more irritable than usual. You leave that out with the family,” says Marion Pothmann and advises: “You shouldn’t just let your mood down, go to the brother and annoy him. It’s better to box or shout in the pillow, do a hundred jumping jacks, or run around the house. ”
It would also be good if you plan alone times. For example, going outside alone or reading a book, listening to a radio play, playing Playmobil. “You don’t need a lot of space for that,” says the psychologist. “You can retreat to an armchair or beanbag.” And the expert has another tip: “Homework doesn’t have to be perfect. The best thing to do is to set up a daily schedule and set short times in which everyone works and then rewards. ” TEH
