Children complain and protest, especially when they are young. That a child is complaining all day is normal since it is his way of telling you that he does not agree with what you are saying, the problem is that if you do not stop these complaints in time, he can become a 'chronic complainer'.

A child who is a 'chronic complainer' and whose parents have not remedied or educated him to stop being so is likely to become a 'complainer' adult and respond.

It is very important that, since they are small, parents educate their children to 'complain' so that they stop being so and know how to behave in a more appropriate way, being able to channel the emotions that make them complain all the time (about anything).

You will have to control your nerves and not give in to the demands of your child only to make him shut up because then his complaints will gradually become demands. Don't miss the following tips so you don't lose your sanity.

1. keep calm. It is true that the constant complaints of your children can get you out of your boxes and get on your nerves but it will not help you. Children may kick, bite, scream or cry for you to look at them and listen to them. If you yell too or reproach them for their bad behavior, you will be giving negative reinforcement, that is, they will be seeing that with their bad attitude they are getting the attention they want so much to get from you.

In this sense, calmly and firmly you can correct your child's behavior by saying things like: 'Please ask appropriately' or perhaps something like: 'Please don't hit my miss, I don't like it and it hurts'. Remember that if you yell to express your frustration your child will too.

2. Don't give in. When children persist in their 'complaints' many parents are tempted to give in just by not listening. For this reason it is necessary that you do not give in and that you speak to him in a normal voice all the time. Ignore and pretend to read or do something else until your child begins to speak normally, and only then can you begin to negotiate a solution (which does not mean having to give in to their claims).

3. Don't forget about the compliments. If your child's misbehavior continues, you will have to make clear the discipline you will use and say things like: 'If you keep yelling at Mom, you will have to think about your bedroom for a few minutes. When your child is calm then you will have to talk to him to reinforce the message of apologizing and giving him a hug with all your love.

The key in disciplining 'complaining' children is consistency. While misbehavior deserves parental attention and should be corrected, good behavior should also be commended. If your child resolves a conflict without complaining you will have to praise him, it will be quite an achievement for him!
