5 tips for children to learn to tolerate frustration


Tolerating frustration is accepting that things don't always turn out the way you would like and controlling all that anger and anger to transform it into effort and move on. It is an excellent learning for children from a very young age.

To achieve this, parents must teach children to channel all that anger and frustration. To achieve this, the psychologist Silvia Álava, gives us 5 very useful guidelines that parents can apply to teach children to tolerate frustration.

1. Be an example: the adult is the model that the child follows. If we adults show frustration or get carried away by anger and rage when things don't go as they would like, children will copy their behavior. It is important to transform anger into effort to achieve what we want.

2. Work perseverance, effort and routine: For children to learn to make an effort, it helps to point them to activities that involve making that effort, such as a sport, better if it is a team because other skills are also worked on.

3. Not reasoning when the child is angryIf the child screams, cries and has a tantrum, the parents have to apply what psychologists call 'extinction', that is, the child has to see that he does not achieve his goal with that attitude. We will not listen to the child when he has this behavior, we will do it and reason when he is calm.

4. Don't dramatize: If something has gone wrong with the child and we give him a very strong emotional charge, the child will become frustrated. If the child makes a mistake, we accept it, we recognize it and we start to fix it. We use all our energy to improve what has been done wrong is more constructive than to remain dramatizing about the fact.

5. Teach them to wait: To teach the child to be patient, we can do little routine things like make him wait in everyday situations, like not going immediately if he calls or waiting at the table until everything is ready. We will increase the waiting time as the child grows and is prepared.
