We all know being a parent isn't easy and finding ways to teach your children empathy, cooperation, and preventing tantrums is an uphill battle at times. At the core, all of our children are well behaved it’s those isolated moments when you are in a rush at the grocery store when the dreaded tantrum takes place. What started as a sane and uneventful trip for milk and eggs turns into a meltdown in aisle 10 as you pass the candy aisle. In an attempt to limit the embarrassment, you leave your cart behind and may be seen quickly leaving the store with your child under your arm. Does this sound familiar?
As much as these events are challenging and slightly embarrassing, it’s a natural part of a child’s development and figuring out how to express their emotions. It’s one of those situations that you never really understand until you become a parent yourself and it’s those same situations that make you wiser the next trip.
How can Bear On The Chair make a lasting impression on your child? Through research on children’s emotional development, we found that they respond to things, which they are most familiar as it is comforting and helps to reduce stress. We all know teddy bears are everyone’s favorite stuffed animal regardless of age and children are familiar with yellow for happy and red for sad. These were two key elements in creating the perfect solution for positive parenting.
