Kids can be too demanding at times. They are too young to understand the importance of thing in life and demand anything they feel lok having. However, fulfilling all these demands always is not a good option. There are times when you have to deal with these demands smartly. Parenting expert Nora Bali shares how you can deal with your kids' demands. 

Don't Be An Overindulgent Parent 

Giving your kids too much time through the day is wrong. Being over-nurturing too, like making their bed or making them have a bath makes you an overindulgent parent. If you are a soft structured parent, your children may not be disciplined enough as ruled are not enforced on them. 

Learn To Say NO

You can't say 'yes' to all the unreasonable demands of your kids. Don't condition their brain in a way that they start feeling that whenever they will cry, they will get anything. This way your child will have a faulty world view where nothing is real because your child gets what they want. 

Make Decisions With Your Children 

If you show high control over all the activities of your children like their food, they may not be able to take their own decisions. You and your child should come together in the decision-making process. Mother can lay down options for the child and the child can pick up food for themselves.
