NSPCC - Take 5

NSPCC - Take 5

Being a parent. It can be wonderful and rewarding. But also exhausting and challenging.

When they'd rather leave home in their pyjamas than get dressed for school or when they smash the record for the longest supermarket tantrum - children's behaviour can leave you feeling frustrated and angry. And that’s completely normal. But reacting angrily is never OK.

If you’re feeling at the end of your tether, Take 5.

Just follow these simple steps: Stop. Breathe. React calmly.
