Difficult Child Behavior - Things To Remember

By Troy Jones

In terms on how to guide our children's behavior, most of us have strong opinions. Unfortunately, these opinions often focus on stopping the inappropriate behavior and neglect to give significant emphasis to helping children learn new, more appropriate ways to behave. People who work with young children have a golden opportunity and an awesome responsibility to help children learn to make appropriate behavior choices which, in turn, can lead to enhanced self-esteem and self-discipline.

Before the rules are broken, discipline for young children must be in place to be effective. Discipline is a process of guidance that can be divided into two major components which is either direct or indirect. We need to look at the organization of the environment in the area of indirect guidance in order to encourage autonomy and empower children. As well, we need to look at the people -- the teachers -- who nurture and help children learn.

The concern of many parents are their children's active, noisy tantrums and behavior. There are times when it can be difficult to work out if a child's behavior is normal or the sign of a behavioral disorder.

Tantrums Tantrums are not usually anything to worry about. A way of expressing their frustration is through tantrums and most have them in their early years, usually from the age of one to four. They can be loud and violent, and it's normal to find them upsetting or embarrassing.

Sometimes, if you can tell your child is about to have a tantrum, you may be able to distract her by getting her to look at something or giving a favorite toy.

When they are excited Young children who are five years old and below are usually energetic, noisy, and also excitable. Usually, it's quite normal to have this liveliness.

There are times when active and noisy children are quite a handful, not doing as they are told, seeming very restless, and talking all the time. Among boys is where you would often find this kind of overactive behavior. This can be hard to deal with but still, the only time it suggests a behavioral disorder is when a child's behavior is extreme.

When they are naughty All children are naughty - scribbling on walls, fighting with siblings, cheekiness and ignoring requests are all part and parcel of growing up. This behavior can sometimes be isolated to one-off incidents or it be also be a phase that your kid is going through.

Your child may be testing your reaction to find out what's allowed or triggered by a change in her environment such as worries about school which is why they are naughty sometimes. It could be that they are jealous of a sibling or they are just trying to get your attention.
