2 Ways To Be Patient.png


Here are some amazing tips to increase your patience level. 


WALK AROUND

Some people take a small stroll when breathing doesn’t help them find their calmness.


MEDITATION

Meditation is something that is helping people from ancient times to modern days with their life choices. The study says that 10 minutes of meditation each day helps us regain our hidden truth of ourselves. It increases our ability to focus on a single thing. It clears our vision of life. Gradually, you become a calmer person than before. 


Time has come that we practice having a little more patience. Especially in today’s world, it has become an important factor in having the patience to live a peaceful life. Practice. You will be a master in some time.

Most children nowadays behave differently from the children of the past. Some are becoming wild, while few are being bullied. It is very noticeable that most children are impolite, rude and have uncontrolled behavior.  


These challenging children may be attributed to three risk factors that influence their behavior. One is their environment. If a child lives in a wholesome and accepting family, the child is more likely to be gentler, kinder and soft-spoken compare to a child who grew in a troubled, dysfunctional family with a single parent raising him/her.

 


The second factor is the inner experience that the child received from his/her immediate family. These positive or negative inner experiences will dictate how a child will behave as an individual especially when in a group or among peers.



The last and third factor that impacts the behavior of a child is receiving the correct empathy which should start from home. Self-awareness which is one aspect of empathy should be taught earlier to a child. When a child becomes aware of his strengths and weaknesses, he/she turns to be more open to the correction of his/her own misbehavior. The child also tends to be more apprehensive about his/her behavior. He/She can easily distinguish positive or negative emotions which leads to self-management of emotion.



As educator, the teacher should pay close attention to the behavior the students manifest in a class or among his/her friends.  When the teacher approaches the student or the child per se, she should take into consideration what personality does the child possesses and use that the parameter to choose a learning style appropriate and matching to the student. Likewise, since most students are now more open and aggressive, the teacher must motivate them more to choose self-improvement than self-destruction.
