Getting your toddler disciplined is one of the most difficult things to do. It is imperative to inculcate values among them from the beginning.
There are individual differences among the siblings as well. You need to analyse whether saying a ‘no’ works for your child or not.
If there is something that your child is doing deliberately, make that inaccessible for him. The next thing you do is analyse the change in his behavioural pattern.
Analyse what lowers your child’s performance. You can then work on it and look for alternatives.
This is the most essential thing. Don’t confuse your child. You cannot keep changing your behavioural patterns with him.
Don’t burst out on your child. Studies show a child who is not repeatedly scolded often performs better than those who are.
Children understand their parents’ instructions at ease. You also need to listen them and understand their part before forcing ourselves on them.
You need to understand your child’s pattern and talk to him in the way he understands. Even over communication is bad. You need to be precise.
You must give him possible alternatives when your child is in a fix.
You must not keep speaking just about anything that comes to your mind.
You must make your child understand that if he doesn’t behave well, he could hurt somebody.
Give him a time frame to act and do not expect to see him change immediately.
He should learn about alternatives rather than letting it out on someone else.
If your child behaves in a particular manner which he was ought to, reward him.
You need to be positive and always open to outlooks. This makes the process of raising a child all the more beautiful.
You must be well-versed with the changes you might encounter as your child grows. For instance, at the age of 18, he is fearless, clueless and impulsive. At the age of 2, your child becomes selfish and self-centred. Positive reinforcements work very well at this age. At 3, your child will turn into a chatterbox. He gets growing.
