But do you know that the more you try to force them to stop crying, the more resentful they will feel? More seriously, these negative emotions can easier transfer into negative actions.

When children get mad, the best thing that parents can do is patiently listening to their expression and give them explanations as well as advice. This will help you to understand more about children “argument”, then you can deal with everything in peace.
Don’t just say “No”
The statements such as “you are not allowed, don’t, never…” can’t make your children obey you. Moreover, it is the main reason for their psychological resistance. So instead of saying NO, let ask your child’s wishes, put him or her in real-life situations so that he or she recognizes the consequences and is more likely to accept your resolution.
For example: “If you drink cold water, your throat is swollen, will you have any discomfort? If your friends come to play and take your bike without your permission, how do you feel?
