Important points not to teach bad behavior
You learn some do's for teaching good behavior.
Now you will learn some don'ts too.
Because it is easier to prevent than to correct the problem, don'ts are rather more important.
Your bad behavior itself will automatically teach bad behavior to your child so stop it first.
Here are some don'ts for you.
Children are smart, especially smart in learning. Children ignore nagging. So do not nag or talk about their bad behavior too much.
Reasoning is not meaningful for children of less than three to four years. So do not try reasoning to get your point across them.
Do not criticize your child. If at all, criticize your child's behavior.
Do not call your child 'bad'. Only the behavior is bad.
Do not call your child names.
Scolding makes children anxious. It may make them ignore you. It may also worsen the behavior. Never scold your child during time-out.
Don't spank. Spanking is bad behavior itself. Spanking teaches your child that it's okay to hit someone in order to solve a problem. Shouting is not good either.
Never spank a child when you are angry. Never ever spank a child who is younger that 18 months. It doesn't help and you may hurt the child. Never hit your child with an object.
Remember, you do not have to become a non civilized parent to raise a civilized child.
Do not pull your child's hair, jerk an arm or shake your child. It is very traumatic.
