Many parents ask me how do I deal with my child when they become aggressive towards their activity. In my previous blog; How to Control anger with kids/ How you know you are controlling as a parent explains why children react and what are the triggers to be aware of.
This blog gives tips and techniques to apply when doing a creative activity.
A. Let your child plan their schedule of art activities they want to do.
Ask them how they want to display this. Either on a visual calendar, or in a diary. Try not to interfere with their decisions, let them decide. They are generally deciding on themes, so materials can be adapted to budget. If your child changes their mind half way during activity or a day, or even wanting to display the activities - let them, there is a reason they are doing this and psychologically their brain needs balancing to process how they are thinking or feeling. (Don't point out they have made the change just go with the flow)
