Take charge of your emotions

Having another blue day today?

Don’t worry, you’ll feel better. But don’t be surprised if your child misbehaves tomorrow.

A new study has found that the day after mum acts sad or angry in front of her children, they are more likely to be defiant and inattentive.

Children pick up on our mood and it affects how they feel. When they act out, often they are just reacting to what they have seen from us.

Everyone gets sad from time to time but moping around does not make things any better.

Try getting yourself out of the house for a while. A walk around the block is a great way to relieve stress or anxiety.

Or take the children to the park and let them play while you relax in the shade with a good book.

You might even surprise them by chasing them around the playground.

It is difficult to stay sad when you are playing and having fun.
