| One of the most important skills we as parents ,should teach our children is to reflect before acting. Acting impulsively causes alot of problems. It can escalate an already tense situation . Also, words spoken in haste are difficult to take back. Just counting to twenty before responding can manytimes do the trick. Thomas Jefferson recommended if one was very angry to count to one hundred. By counting, it gives a person a chance to calm down. You think better when you are calm.
If you react immediately when angry you often feel guilty afterwards for hurtful things said.
People will have more respect for you too, if you react slowly in a calm way. So, before you talk see a stop sign, count and then act. If counting doesn't do the trick maybe just walk away and cool down.
Your life will have fewer conflicts if you follow the stop,think then act policy.|
