7 Genius Tips From a Lazy Psychologist Mom That All Parents Have To Try

Anna Bykova is a lazy mom. And she isn’t ashamed to admit that. Moreover, the psychologist and the author of several best-selling books is even proud of this “title” as she believes that it gives her children an opportunity to become more independent. However, by laziness, Anna doesn’t mean lying on the sofa all day long, but a desire to not do everything herself. For example, sometimes it’s better to be “lazy” and let a 7-year-old do the dishes to improve their fine motor skills. And it’s fine that you’ll have to wipe the floor dry after this and wash the dishes again when the child isn’t looking.

Prevent your child’s temper tantrums

  • Hide all the things they can’t touch from the child.
  • Show the child a new bright object or promise to do something else even more exciting. I always carry a bottle of bubbles with me, a balloon that I can blow up in the case of an emergency, or small and cheap toys.

  • Scissors are a dangerous toy for a kid and if they really want to touch them, it’s fine to let them do it — but only if mom controls the process. Having too many taboos irritates the child and limits their development.

  • Try the approach, “Of course, we’ll do it but we’ll have to wait until later.” or “Yes, but…” It works like this: “Of course, we’ll play, but let’s get some sleep first.”

  • If you need to stop a game to feed your child, suggest feeding a toy first. For example, if you want to make your young “builder” stop building and have lunch, don’t say “Leave your building set and let’s go eat.” Just announce that the construction team is having a lunch break.

  • Suggest an alternative and the child will behave the way you want. For example, you could ask: “Will you pick up your toy soldiers or cars first?” Unfortunately, this technique doesn’t work for long. After a certain age, the child can and probably will refuse to perform both actions.
