Child does not tolerate others

Intolerance is not the same as possessiveness. It might have underlying reasons.

Intolerance means the child is not able to share his/her space and get comfortable with other kids. You can try the following to improve the situation:

  • Tell your child that you love them and just like you care for them, others will care for them too if they allow others in their space.
  • Keep a track of whether your child is being rude or abusive when their friends visit him/her or whether your child just walks away when friends visit. If your child is being rude or abusive, it is not acceptable. Tell them that being rude will have consequences.
  • But if they are just walking away, make your child greet and talk to their friend(s) and then walk away politely rather than walking away in an aggressive manner.
  • Intolerance may have psychological reasons as well. It may be because your child has trust issues due to a past experience or something else.
  • Observe their behaviour with everyone. Are they being intolerant of everyone or just of a single person? If it is everyone, you should get a clinical psychologist's help to tackle this behaviour. If it is just one person, the child might have had some bitter experience(s) with that particular person. Talk to your child to know the reason. If they don't give in, a psychologist can help you and your child.
  • The reason behind intolerance needs to be figured out at the earliest and a psychologist might be able to help you and your child in this matter.
