My Child doesn’t like Anything

A child without emotion scares their parents. What should you do if your baby often experiences negative emotions, and you can’t figure out why?

from 1 year 6 months to 8 years

“Mom, I'm bored!”, “This birthday isn’t fun!”, “I didn’t like this trip!” ... Sound familiar? If you often hear your child talk like that, try to find out what’s going on with them. For this, it is important to establish close emotional contact with your baby. Your answer to the question should be clear: is it a trait of their character, or has this behavior manifested recently?

If your baby’s always had a calm temperament, then this may just be the new norm, and you just need to learn how to communicate with them. This temperament does not mean that your child is doomed to loneliness, or that they won’t have friends. They’ll have their own interests, so it’s important not to impose your view of the world onto them. If you are still worried about their psychological state, consult a specialist.

If they suddenly seem apathetic, then we can assume your child is experiencing some sort of issue - in kindergarten, in the family. Maybe your kid is tormented by fears, and that’s why they’re locking themselves away.

In addition to fears and a lot of changes, the reasons for children's lack of interest in something may be an excessive workload. Often parents try to drive their children into many circles and activities, but not all children are emotionally prepared for that. A child may simply not have enough energy for everything and, above all, to do what they really like. Also, they may get confused and stop understanding what they want, because they’re so used to being constantly told what to do.

Allow your kid to do what they like, and leave enough space in their schedule for their own interests (which, of course, are not harmful to their health).

If your child is worried, or something unpleasant happened to them, do not try to dismiss their feelings - you need to help them. Give your baby time to worry, support them and be there for them.

Be attentive to your baby!
