It becomes a little awkward to explain such things to your child.
Conversations revolving around the situations and scenarios of the world are always uncomfortable to address. Keep the following pointers in mind:
Shouting only makes matters worse, be it you or your child.
All humans are stubborn, more or less. That does not mean you cannot teach your child to put their foot down and patiently listen to what the other person has to say.
Back answering is not just a misbehaviour of your child. There might be underlying reasons for that.
A child is entitled to his/her choices of choosing friends and playmates.
Knowing the interest of your child will help you guide your child better.
Even your child is aware that hitting is not the right thing. You just need to pin point the problem and solve it.
A child will always stay true to his/her nature. Nonetheless, there is always room for changes and improvements.
When a toddler asks you a question, either it comes out of curiosity or it could be just attention seeking. Whatever is the case, it is always best to feed your child's curiosity and give them undivided attention.
Nail biting is common not only in children but also in adults. It is important to understand the underlying reasons behind this habit.
It's normal for kids to get cranky but as a parent do not lose the cool.
Children lie when they feel they actions will not be accepted by their parents. Assure your child that you will be there to support them when things go downhill.
Discipline teaches your child how to behave and how not to behave in social and routine situations. It also lays the foundation for the kind of adult the child is going to be.
Before assuming that your child is a disobedient child, assess what according to you is disobedience.
Children model their parents the most. Develop the listening skill yourself and then help the child to achieve the same.
