Tips on how to deal with Stubborn Child
Listen to them, But don’t argue
Communication is a two-way process. If you want that your child should listen to you, starts listening to him first. But remember “ONLY LISTEN”. Don’t get into an argument with him.
Don’t force them
Let us understand this by an example: forcing your 5-year-old child, who force on watching t.v past her bedtime. Don’t force them to go to bed instead sit with him and show interest in what he is watching. When he sees your care, he will likely to respond.
Give the option to choose
Give them options, not directives. But too many aren’t good either. Instead of telling him not to do a particular thing, tell him that you should do this or other things instead.
While handling your stubborn child stay calm. Don’t shout at them during an argument or a talk. Calmly deal the situation as well as calmly deal your child.
