Child behavior Tips And Advice For Changing Children

It is a well known fact that many parents are experiencing changing child behavior of their child and / or children. This behavior is called changing child behavior basically because our children are constantly changing and growing and the problems associated with the growing years of a child's life can be stressful. In this article I will touch base on some of the primary causes of changing child behavior and how it can be managed.

We first must understand a simple fact about how our actions as a parent / role model affect and influence our children. The way we act in front of our children should reflect how we want our children to behave.

Some examples -

1. If you are a little volatile and / or inclined to yell at your kids when they have misbehaved, you can expect your children to react to situations in a similar manner. You will find that they will yell at their friends and their teachers at school. Even the dog.

2. Kids often look up to their parents and want to be just like them, so if you are a gamer and / or play video games all day long, then you can not and should not play video games yourself. Always remember that whatever monkey see's, monkey does.

3. Never ever lie to your kids under any normal circumstances. Normal meaning every day kind of situations like saying to your child that they can't have any orange juice because there isn't any - When the child very well knows that there is orange juice because they just saw you put it in the fridge, and that is why they want it in the first place.

There are of course situations where a parent must lie to there children, like when a dog passes it is probably normal for a parent to say that the dog ran away and is living happily somewhere else.

Changing child behavior is a problem that affects children of all ages. There is the terrible two's phase, followed by the going to school behavioral changes, again followed by puberty and entrance to high school and the teenage years. The problems associated with children of varying ages are very different and that is why we as parents need to proactively manage our changing child behavior.

Lucas Uren is the father of 3 beautiful children all of which are undergoing changing child behavior. His eight year old son is going through some changes at school - more pressure and expectations from his teachers and his peers. His two year old son is at the terrible two stage of his toddling days and is sometimes extremely difficult to manage, and lastly...his baby daughter, now eight months is just starting to crawl and is often getting under the feet of her brothers and even managed to wedge herself into the crevice behind the fridge the other day.
