“Why is it that my niece Rhoda is such a wonderful kid, but the moment the neighbor’s daughter visits’ her, both of them turn into little monsters? I wondered to myself as I watched them both play. The sofa gets ripped apart and the sponge falls out, toys break and I can’t describe it but its more like a mini whirlwind that hits the house when these kids get together. And what’s worse is Rhoda starts talking back with her mother using foul language. I can’t understand how my cousin sister, Rhoda’s mother can take this Jekyll and Hyde like behavior from her daughter and what’s more- have the patience to put up with it. Kids can be so annoying but parents will always be parents irrespective of the kind of monsters that they turn into.

There are a few children that get influenced with peer pressure but that’s exactly what good parenting warns parents about. Bhavna, the owner of Indian says “almost everything a child learns in the first few years of its life is from their parents". "The biggest problem is a lack of discipline, and spot correction. The child tends to think he or she can get away with anything."If parents followed the tips given below, it could have an immediate impact on the behavior of the child.

1. Teach your child a set acceptable social behavior and ensure the child doesn’t succumb to peer pressure in terms of behaving in a social setting.

2. Understand that your child has certain strong likes and dislikes so ask them for a view point even when it comes to adult problems. You will be surprised that when they give you solutions it will be simple and honest.

3. Avoid blaming a child for anything or shouting violently at the child. On the contrary, sit down and explain politely to a child the bad behavior.

4. Don’t laugh with your child while you discipline them. They will never take it seriously and grow up to be confused with right and wrong.

5. Children come up with a lot of tall stories and complaints. That’s the time they actually want you to listen to them. Listening to them makes them feel heard.

6. Watch cartoons with them, play with them, read to them and spend some time in their little world.

7. Do not interfere when your child is punched blue in the face in a fight. On the contrary, teach the child to apologies and patch up.
