Parenting: Guiding Kids in their discovery years
Kids learn the new things everyday and might create problems for their parents. The parents are finding it hard to tackle the situation. This is a common stage which occurs through the discovery years of the kids (Early Learning) which extend to the end of their teen age. The parents need to be very careful at this time as the kids learn the attitude and social behavior from their parents. They will need proper attention and they will have to be guided properly.
Commonly the kids get into fights with one another and they do not share
their things, these are the few difficulties you face when your child is learning. They are rarely at peace. They are always moving and the new things are inspiring them. The parents need
to handle this carefully. If they are asking their kids to stop all this that means that they are interrupting heir natural learning process and at the same time the parents can not let the kids do whatever they want to do. The parents will have to create a balance and they will need to learn a lot about the kid behavior and the results of that behavior. If the parents are not focusing on educating themselves with the proper parenting techniques they will fail.
The parents will have to tell their kids how they should behave. It may seem difficult as the kids will not always listen to them and sometimes they will not follow anything. The parents will have to make sure that they are telling the kids the outcome of their behavior be it positive or negative. When the kids know the consequences, they will start behaving properly and will listen to their parents. Preventive teaching skills can be really handy at this time. The parents can find great help if they know the proper preventive teaching skills.
When your children are misbehaving and they are not doing the things the way they are supposed to do, then you will have to find a solution to this. The best thing to do is to teach them an alternative behavior. This alternative behavior has to be a positive behavior. The kids will then learn it slowly and will adapt to it. Remember that leaving the kids without an alternative positive behavior is a big mistake as this will make them frustrated and they will learn negative things.
If despite all your efforts, the kids are not listening to you, you will have to change the way you are doing the things. May be the consequences that you have set for them are not right. It may be the time to tighten up the things a little. You should always setup the consequences which will affect the child behavior. If this is not the case, then you will have to change the things a little.
