Blog Article

Your 2-year-old is definitely a challenge, and your 4-year-old knows how to try your patience, but they're nothing compared to your 8-year-old with unlimited attitude.

The temper tantrums are escalating as your 8-year-old begins to gain independence and individuality. The eye-rolling, slamming of doors, and acting like regular chores are sheer torture can try a parent's patience.

If you think it's hard being a parent to an 8-year-old, it's hard being an 8-year-old also, so remember to be as compassionate as possible when the melt-downs occur. Every age has its ups and downs, and these difficult moments will pass.

Have faith that your child will soon grow into new independence and become a more reasonable human being.

If you need some guidance on how to manage a headstrong 8-year-old, talk to the experts at Endless Discoveries Child Development Center. We may not have all the answers, but it helps to have someone to listen when the going gets tough. Before long, you'll be able to find some humor in the situation.
