Does your child love your partner and is always happy around them but starts fighting and crying as soon as they are around you? Well, trust us when we say this but it has nothing to do with the fact that your little joy of happiness hates you or loves your partner more. In fact, it is all because you are his primary caretaker and are closer to his heart. Confused? Well, read further to understand what we are talking about.
Understand Toddlers’ Behavior
Every parent reaches a moment when they get tired of their beloved child’s tantrums and breakdowns, especially when all of that is only directed towards you. But why does it happen? After several studies, experts figured that it’s the age. In fact, it is not uncommon for children of this age to show all their aggressive and difficult emotions toward their parents. When a kid is small, his primary parent is the one they are most comfortable with. This is why they feel safe showing their worst self in front of the same person.
How to Set Boundaries
It is very common for parents to give in to their kid’s demands. However, it is important to set boundaries in order to keep them on their best behavior. This can be achieved by setting a polite time warning so that your child knows what’s coming next. For instance, if your kid has been watching TV for almost an hour, you can let them know that they can watch one more episode, and then you will turn off the TV and they’ll go play outside. This ensures that switching from one activity to another doesn’t come to him as a surprise. You can also do this by offering them various choices. This can make your child feel like he has control. Make sure you offer them small choices so that they do not get overwhelmed.
Remember Not to Lose Your Cool
Dealing with a toddler all by yourself can get into your head. This is when you need to make sure that you do not lose your cool. Try to deal with difficult times patiently. This doesn’t mean that you will never raise your voice or scold your beloved, but that can be avoided. Remember when you criticize your toddler, they become more unreasonable. Therefore, instead of doing that, try to have a calm conversation. Make them understand why something is not good for them, making sure you make them feel acknowledged too.
Get Rid of Tired Skin Along With Those Dark and Puffy Eyes
Looking wide awake and well-rested is easier said than done. Not everyone has time for eight hours of sleep each night, but that doesn’t mean that all hope is lost. Waking up in the morning and taking a look in the mirror only to discover that you have puffy eyes and tired skin isn’t so flattering. However, helping your skin glow and look refreshed can help your overall appearance.
When it comes to makeup, putting on a little can go a long way. Less is more. Too much concealer or coverage can actually draw more attention to those areas.
Refresh Your Tired Skin
- Start with a gentle scrub as opposed to your daily cleanser. The physical sensation and act of buffing your skin can help to wake up your sense and take off some of those dead skin cells. In turn, this will provide you with an automatic healthy glow.
- Depuff with serum while lightly massaging it into your face. Put some serum on your fingertips and press your fingers between your eyebrows while massaging upwards to your forehead. Do the same thing in the center of your face and out to your cheekbones and to your ears. Go down a bit more and do the same to your jawline. This can help flush some of the excess fluid and decrease puffiness.
- Enhance your look by applying a tinted moisturizer instead of concealer for a more glowy look.
Get Rid of Your Puffy Eyes
- Soothe your eyes by freezing four metal spoons for 15 minutes and placing them on your eyes until the metal warms up. The coolness from the metal will help de-puff the eyes.
- Conceal the dark circles and puffiness with some concealer after applying your tinted moisturizer. Using a single shade lighter than your skin tone can do wonders and make your eyes appear brighter.
- Use highlighter in the corner of your eyes to brighten them up and apply mascara — a blue shade of mascara is known to brighten them best.
