A young child has an impressionistic mind . The formative years of every child are pivotal in shaping their personality. Beansprouts Preschool is sensitive to the needs and requirements of the young ones. Our experienced educators are equipped to help and mold the young ones into a positive and responsible citizen.
Parents and school play an important role in forming habits in children. Our children know that parents love them and provide all that they ask for. But it is also important for the children to realize early on that on some occasions they will need to hear a ‘No”.
Situation goes out of hand when a child doesn’t take “no” for an answer. We need to be very patient in tackling such situations.
Parents have to be clear and honest with themselves about the reality of the situation if they have nurtured this “never take no for an answer” problem in their kids. If the child is pushing back when you say ‘no,’ understand that up until now, you’ve watered and fed that behavior, and it grew. So to expect this behavior to change without any conflict is unrealistic.
An important job of the parent is to teach their child and set limits. The limit setting role, in particular, is an essential part of a parenting style.
Never be loud or rude with them.
Talk to your kids as if you like them, even when saying ‘no.’
Be warm and speak with a soft tone that gives them the message that you care about them.
In Beansprouts, we always believe in “gentle handling and no shouting “ behavior. Our educators (DROP teachers) are always friendly but firm when they say ”no” .
If your child doesn’t listen to NO , firmly tell her/ him to accept it. If the nagging doesn’t stop you have to give him a break.Explain things again when the child is calm. Being overly strict can backfire in the long run. So don’t shout or get angry. Let the child understand that he has to listen to his parents.
This change might take some time but eventually the child would relent and stop all blackmailing tactics like crying, shouting, throwing tantrums etc. A parent must make the child respond to their do’s and don’t and this can be shaped by explaining why you are saying ‘No’ .
The complex relationship between a child and parents needs constant vigil, tenderness and a gentle nudge! Being a parent also means that we need to model positive behavior ourselves. Happy parenting.
