TYPES OF PROBLEM BEHAVIOURS IN CHILDREN
It is common among parents to make generalized assumptions when dealing with difficult children. Parents know well, often worried that a badly behaved child would have enough tricks in his bag to disturb the tranquillity in the family. At times, it’s not surprising they reduce the parents to think, ‘Do I have any authority at home.’
Here is a checklist of ten common problem behaviours we notice in children
Children display carelessness and resistance to parental authority. They do whatever they want; irritable moods with friends, argumentative tendency is common among these children.
We see in children non-complaint behaviour. Refusing to listen, always ‘NO’ is the answer. They never do a task which they don’t like or given from elders who have authority.
Children display a strong independent mentality. They have to get their way. They are bossy; they like to do things at their own pace.
Children normally are timid; they try to avoid social interaction, hide away from people, talk less, avoid friends, avoids taking part in games. Children avoid answering questions in the class. They prefer to sit back and watch others play.
Here children seem to be critical of everything. They are anxious and express themselves as if sitting on a short fuse. They worry a lot, fear a lot.
The child doesn’t have the patience to wait and display impolite ways during conversations, and social gatherings. They are quick to share their information, their point of view. Children interrupt because there are too young, there are too impulsive. We see most of the children not properly trained by parents in social etiquettes.
Children are often unsettled and upset the parents or others when they are spending their private moments. They are impulsive the moment they get a thought they have to speak it out no matter what time it is.
VERBALLY ANGRY BEHAVIOUR:
Children can’t control their tempers most of the time. It becomes their typical behaviour. They lash out if it frustrates them if they don’t want to do any work. They involve themselves in conflict situations at home and school.
Children are rude to their siblings, with their friends at school. Their manners at home and school are upsetting, impatient, and intolerant. They lose temper frequently.
They are many causes of selfish behaviour in children. The feeling of neglect can make a child selfish. They behave in ‘everything is mine’ attitude. They behave oddly over small issues. They lack discipline. They won’t interact well with their siblings.
For parents, when learning to deal with your child, we win the half battle if you try to understand the behaviour pattern of the child. This keen observation may help to sort the disturbing impressions and get a handle of some direction and pattern how to manage the child’s behavioural issues and not using the punishment route.
