Be Aware of Your Child’s Stress Level

A child that is stressed out is less likely to be cooperative and more inclined to moodiness.
Both of these actions can lead to problem behaviours.
If you notice that your child is experiencing added stress, focus on relieving the stress by determining what is upsetting him or her and doing what you can to help alleviate the problems.

During these stressful periods, within reason, try to overlook negligible behaviours.
Focus more on finding solutions rather than punishment.

Also, keep in mind that one of the best ways of alleviating your child’s stress level is by showing your love and affection.

According to hadith, the Prophet [peace and blessings of Allah be upon him] was very loving with his grandchildren.

Aisha [may Allah be pleased with her] reported,
“Some Bedouin people came to the Prophet [peace and blessings of Allah be upon him] and said:
‘Do you kiss your children?’
He said: ‘Yes’.
He said: ‘But we, by Allah, never kiss (our children)’.
The Prophet [peace and blessings of Allah be upon him] said:
‘What can I do if Allah has taken away mercy from you?’”
[Ibn Majah]
