Behavior is the way in which we act, speak and treat other people and our environment. The child who grew up well socially and emotionally at their early age are more likely to make friends, settle well into school and understand how to behave appropriately in different situations. Children have very strong self-esteem and sense of self-worth, but also have a feeling of empathy for others. They understand what the boundaries are, and why they are necessary. Those children who have poor social and emotional development may be at the low level of developing poor relationships with peers and unwanted behavior.
There are many ways to build a positive relationship with your child. The play has an important role in a child`s development, and it is important to play with your child without taking over. Regularly playing with the child-centered game means you are helping them to build a positive behavior of your children. With an older child, having some private one –to –one time once or twice a week can pay huge dividends. But do not forget to take time to have fun together.
Your child needs plenty of praise to build up their self-esteem and to enable them to believe they are a good and capable person. Every time you praise them you build up their positive behavior. You must be specific about what you are praising them for. You can show your pleasure physically as well verbally, cuddle or pat on the head can be much more powerful than words. Parents associate cuddles and kisses with small children, but older children also need physical touch to feel loved and wanted. Small gestures of affection make a big difference to your children.
Always give your children positive rather than negative attention. Reinforce your children`s good behavior by giving them rewards and praise. This is much more effective than punishments. You must ignore bad behavior even in testing situations, although you may have to set limits in dangerous situations and be clear and always consistent about what you expect.
