Being in the spotlight is not so easy, especially if you are a kid. It can be really hard if the paparazzi are following you everywhere, and you must keep a friendly face on all the time. Not an easy job for a toddler, right?
Prince George and Princess Charlotte have been under a sportlight since they were born. Even though they have a relatively private life, their royal parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, take them along in their international trips evey now and then..
When the whole family appeared on official events, we all could witness the parenting manners and style that William and Catherine seem to have adopted.
Definitely, new parents have so much to learn from them. The way this couple deal with tantrum situations is priceless. So, when little Prince George disobeys or Princess Charlotte starts whining, they know exactly what to do.
Catherine and William often stoop down to the child’s level, as if they are placing themselves in the kids’ shoes. Parenting experts say that this gesture shows respect for the child, and express a desire to understand and help.
Children tend to idealize parents and submit to their superiority. However, a different approach works more effectively sometimes – when you sit down, coming closer to your precious one, you make them feel you are at the same level, that you are in the same position.
Establishing eye-contact is important too. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge often gaze in their kids’ eyes while trying to explain something to them.
“Look at me while I am talking to you”: Does this phrase sound familiar? Intuitively, many parents practice this trick, but when a tantrum hits, we may feel irritated and confused. In such a situation, we forget how to act appropriately.
Looking into a child’s eyes helps you develop a stronger bond. It both involves the child in the conversation and makes them more focused and empathetic. This way, both can feel each other's emotions.
We know that eyes can tell a lot more and better than words can express. It takes one look to know what a mother is thinking, right? Being on the spot all the time, Catherine and William often prefer the ”eye talk” to the battle of words. This trick works, obviously.
They say eyes are the mirror of the soul and it is true indeed. Eye contact is a powerful tool of communication with children and it is also effective in developing a deep and strong connection with them. Once again, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have proven that they are pros at parenting.
