Preschoolers are kids usually between the ages 2 years to 4 years.  And a mom to such category of child can be called preschooler’s mom. Mom handling kids of this category are more sensitive and vigilant.

The Challenges faced training a preschooler

Reasonably, you will agree with me that the challenges faced by preschoolers’ mom are more than one. Starting from how preschoolers express feelings, how to lodge complain, effective communication, reading or writing challenges, handling house chore, controlling kids behavioral act, attitude, modeling the child character, staying healthy, handling home works, socializing, tantrum, controlling rough play, safety at play, protecting them from harmful object, mention it’ the list is unlimited and could also be emotional stress to moms like me and you.  

However, all boils down to a point which I will rationally sum up or group as one challenges engulf all and give it a collective adjective because all it encompasses is Energy Zapping.

Yes’ Energy Zapping! Why?

Because, energy which simply means the ability and strength to do active physical things and the feeling that you are full of physical power. It is the determination and enthusiasm about doing a particular aim. And “zapping” which term weakling.

Therefore the two pronounce together Energy zapping therefore denotes that your strength can deplete or gradually weaken taking up such routine challenges.

It means mom can easily be drain of energy while handling a child of this category in that most active activities involved are carried out repeatedly and as most preschoolers child can do nothing on their own but solely rely on mom to do and also it’s a stage mom teach kids to do many other things except play.

How is this a challenge to a preschoolers’ mom?

 At this stage of a child life, they need you to help them do almost everything. From wearing their clothes to feeding them, helping them to the toilet etc. Fact is that they need you everywhere. Some cannot even do without seeing their mum for hours else they start crying.

This is one of the ways it poses as a challenge to mom for example, let us picture a working class mom who has to go to work early in the morning and probably come back late because of traffic.

Before she goes to work in the morning’ she is routinely engaged. She prepare all her child needs for the day bathing, dressing, feeding, kit toiletries bag alongside getting prepared for work, she may also be required to make breakfast for herself and husband.

As simple as this task looks, it may likely take an hour plus and by the time she is set to go work she would have been physically drained (Tired). And same routine is applicable when she gets back from work, checking the wellbeing of her kid, preparing dinner, doing one house chore or the other I mean’ How does she balance it?

·         Do not see it as a Task

It is without doubt that the chores and workload can be tiring. Sometimes you may just want to take a break from everything; that is fine also.

This may sound bizarre but it is the fastest way to win over your child, understand them and know them for who they are. How is this possible? To be the best mom you have to know your child. And to know you have to act like one.

How can you act like one? Whether you are a busy mom or not, give your child some minutes of your time daily. Be it 2-3 hours per day preferably after work or more. In that time, you will get to know them by going into their world. You will act like you are a child too. Children relate faster with people that understand them. You do not have to act like a mom all the time.

Communication is a two way thing; talk and listen. It is a contribution from two people. That means when you talk to them you should also listen to them and answer their questions.

Children will always come up with questions; especially the children of this century. They grow fast intellectually; so you should be ready to listen to them talk. When they ask questions and you listen, you stimulate their cognitive through their mind too.

For example, if your child asks questions at times that are not good for you to answer, instead of shutting him up, you can explain to him why it is not a good time. That way, you get them involved with you and also make him or her feel important.

·         Give them what they want most times than what they need

It seems like it should be the other way round. That is, you should give them what they need than what they want rather. But, let us look at it this way; you know what they need and you have no choice but to give them- the basics.

But look at what they want, you can’t exhaust it. Children have an unending list of wants. They want ice cream, sweets, biscuits, candies and all of it. How do you manage it all? When you give a child what he wants he is happy and when he is happy you have an edge over him.

Although some children may want to get used to getting what they want by crying for it, it is then your duty as a mother to watch that space and set moderation; seize the same avenue to teach life lessons, impact morals. Let it please you read 6 Moral to impact on a child’ you surely going to understand many other things.

This where you get to strengthen your communication by explaining reasons why you take decisions.

These are quite a few interesting points that encompass many things; from see the stress in it less tasking, strengthen interactive communication, come down to their level by acting like a child and to give them what they want are simple and easy things to follow.
