Children’s Behavior Today

Nancy B. Alston

Many behavior problems in children are perfectly normal but if you are like most parents, you will become very concerned if your child starts to act in a manner that you’re not familiar. If your kid begins to exhibit strange behavior that you have not noticed before, you will probably be concerned with your children’s behavior. So how can you start today.

The most common behavioral problem in the kid is temper tantrums, and this is most if not all kid’s experience. Little children, especially toddlers, tend to possess temper tantrums more frequently as they continue learning how to express themselves and as they develop motor skills. Often they get frustrated because they do not know how to tell what they want nor need, even playing with a new toy can get on their delicate nerves. Its part of the growing process, plus as they learn to manage different tasks effectively and communicate better the tantrums will subside. You can aid them overcome their tantrums through showing concern not anger and helping them see through the problems they are facing in real life circumstances like school and home.

Another common behavior problem in the kid is whining. All little kids will do it though unless you teach them otherwise. As a parent, it is natural to respond to your child if they cry. There’s a different type of parent response often given to a whining child: an urgent one. The children notice this and because kids realize that they will get your attention by whining they will do it without failing. Whether they need a snack or want to play with a toy that’s out of reach, they will whine if they think they will get you to offer them what they want. The only one true way to deal with it is to make your child understand that they can just come and ask you for whatever it is they want. Keep an always open line of communication between you and your child and instead of whining about to catch your attention, they will definitely learn to come and talk to you.

Children always will battle for some power with their parents; it is a part of growing up. You might have already noticed times that your kid has spoken in a disrespectful manner in an attempt to have their way. This is another of the common children behavior that many parents go through.
