Every now and then our kids show us a little attitude, be it intentionally or unintentionally. It can be a sarcastic tone or a sudden rude temper. Whenever this happens, it is likely to explode parent’s head.
The way we deal with it will either give them a permit to develop even worse ones or it will make them realize about their unhealthy attitudes. One must deal with this temperament logically. Here are some of the things which are to be kept in mind while upbringing your child.
Handle your child’s disrespect with Respect
We need to sculpt the behavior we are looking for our child. Parent’s lack in credibility to deal with their kid’s attitude when they do so with their own attitude! To make your kids realize that their disrespect hurts and is wrong, there is another way. Talk to them respectfully, politely and tell them why they are wrong.
Notify them about their Tone
Kids often don’t realize how rude or high their tone, or how unacceptable their body language is. So make a habit of pointing them and taking their attention whenever they do anything like this. Don’t go extreme, children stop listening things when you say it multiple times. Simply tell them that when they say something like that, they simply mean,’ you are stupid dad’. Be calm and make them realize that it’s wrong.
Tackle the uncertainty below the Attitude
Sometimes children go through a lot what they don’t speak out but their behavior does. Their anger reflects that something is going in their head. Sometimes kids start feeling unloved and rejected at school or at home. Talk to them. Don’t tolerate disrespect; tell them this is not the way to talk. Ask them what is wrong, politely guide them and support them.
