“Your kids are so patient! I wish mine were too!”.
My kids are not patient by nature. But they had lots of opportunities to practice patience.
On those 5-hour bus rides that were way too long, but we did them anyway. In everyday life with no screens. Every time Alex and I have to work and they have to figure out what to do by themselves.
Being two helps a lot.
But what helps the most is having a lot of opportunities to practice patience. At the beginning there will be crisis, but when you respond to those crisis with understanding, each time they develop a little bit more patience, and one day... they’ll be patient.
Kids work like us, often we forget it.
