The power of patience;helps effective parents deal calmly and rationally with day-to-day problems and annoyances. It lets them stay focused on the "bigger picture" and not get bogged down by daily hassles. Patience helps them maintain emotional stability even in times of crisis.
Your child wants to be seen and heard. When you demonstrates patience, you are also giving your child the message that he is valued and validated. And when you lose patience, you can create stress and frustration for your child.
So, when you "Stop, Look, and Listen" to your child, you show him that he is important, that you believe in him, and that you have empathy and compassion for his feelings.
