It’s not the childs fault; Believe it or not, poor parenting is the main cause of bad behaviour in children.
Kids can be frustrating, annoying and down right infuriating at times and yet you’re still expected to love and care for the little ‘angels’ through thick and thin.
They won’t admit it as often parents don’t know any different, but often the problem is due to poor parenting which manifests itself in bad behaviour in the child. This in turn has a negative affect on the home and work life of everyone in the household as strife and conflict dominates the family.
Anne Sprigpitt, owner of Parenting-tips.info says, “Most parents don’t realise it, but their actions have a direct influence on the behaviour of their child whether they are a toddler or a teen. Almost everything a child learns in the first few years of its life is from their parents and it is all stored in the child’s memory for a later date.”
“The biggest problems are due to a lack of discipline, boundaries and standards, and most importantly a lack of affection and display of their love for the child. However, these can easily be resolved by applying simple parenting principles and strategies which can have an immediate and dramatic impact on the behaviour of the child.”
“In many cases, children who are repeatedly violent and disruptive in school are found to have deeply rooted problems at home, caused by bad parenting. Once this is realised and acknowledged a number of techniques can be implemented and significant improvements are often found in the child’s behaviour in a matter of a few weeks or even days.”
Parenting is not easy, but it is not hard either, provided you establish a loving two way relationship with the child, set boundaries and discipline the child appropriately when necessary.
