HOW TO... MAN­AGE THE KIDS

7 Days in Dubai - - LIFE -

If you want to main­tain a mod­icum of con­trol, take ad­vice from De­vika Mankani, chief pos­i­tive psy­chol­o­gist at Fortes Ed­u­ca­tion

I al­ways rec­om­mend the 90-minute rule for short hol­i­days when it comes to bed time. When on hol­i­day, al­low about 90 min­utes of flex­i­bil­ity when it comes to wake-up or go-sleep time, but be watch­ful not to ex­ceed that.

If you would like to of­fer your chil­dren some­thing re­ally spe­cial, why not use this event as an op­por­tu­nity to teach value by talk­ing about grat­i­tude, trust and ac­tion.

When kids don’t get along or cause trou­ble, make it a point to have three con­ver­sa­tions with them. Out­line your ex­pec­ta­tions of un­wanted be­hav­iour and talk about the con­se­quences of both wanted and un­wanted be­hav­iour.
