10 Misbehaviours Parents Should Avoid

Often parents get worried about their children’s misbehaviour and look out for solutions and strategies to help them get rid of these misconducts. Here are 10 misbehaviours parents should avoid while disciplining their children or during any parenting time.

Since you are a parent, you deeply want your child to become a good person and succeed as well as remain always happy in life. Well, it is obvious that you try to do everything you can in order to help your child have everything good in his or her life.

Parents want their children to be happy and well adjusted. While trying to make their children perfect, they misbehave or you can say do certain things that are not acceptable. Here are some of the misbehaviours that parents should avoid as far as possible.

10 Misbehaviours Parents Should Avoid

Have a quick look at the 10 misbehaviours which parents should avoid without fail.

1. Have High Level of Possessiveness

As a parent it is obvious to be possessive for your child. But you should avoid being too strict or domineering keeping in mind the situation. Remember, excess of everything is bad.

2. Applying too Much Pressure

Even though parents think about the future of their children and often do not have any personal interest, yet many put lot of pressure on their children without analysing the potential of their kids. It is advisable to find out what your child’s interests and capabilities are before you pressurise him or her to attain a specific goal.

3. Setting a Bad Example

Parents teach their child to stay calm and never say bad words or use unacceptable language when talking to others. But, in reality many forget when they are in their age group or when they get annoyed. Just keep in mind that children follow and learn best when they observe their parents practicing what they preach.

4. Using Bribe

On one hand you teach your child about corruption and on the other hand you offer bribe just to maintain your status or just to have a quiet life. You should keep in mind that offering cookies or an extra hour to watch television is also included in bribing.

5. Too Much of Arguing

When you ask your child to not to argue, then how can you do the same thing? Excess of arguing with your spouse or anyone else can have a negative impact on your kid’s mind. He or she might get confused and perhaps unable to decide which of the behaviours is right.

6. Manipulating and Quarrelling

There are times when husbands and wives manipulate or quarrel. You might say that this is part of life. But, when you are a parent you need to control your emotions and anger. It is good to sit and discuss over any matter preferably when your child is either sleeping or is off to school.

7. Getting Angry and Yelling

After all we are human beings and we get angry sometimes. There are times when anger gets out of control and without considering the consequences, parents yell at the person with whom they are angry. This leaves a bad impact on your child’s mind and memories. Avoid this as far as possible.

8. React with Anger

If you find your child misbehaving, you react with anger. You should avoid doing this because this might worsen the situation. Remember, the way you react to your child’s misbehaviour will affect her future misbehaviour.

9. Threatening  Your Child

When a child is young, there are many reasons why he or she misbehaves. So, if you find that your child is making the same mistakes repeatedly, instead of threatening him or her, try to find out the reason behind that repeated misbehaviour. Finding a solution to any problem is more important than caving it for the moment.

10. Lack of Patience

Parents have to face lot of day-to-day problems these days. Their lives are hectic and they have to meet challenges at different walks of life. All these and many environmental pressures make parents lack patience especially when dealing with kids. This type of behaviour will affect your child’s growth, development and approach towards life and living. Avoid doing this no matter what you are going through.

Raising well-behaved and self-stimulating children is not easy. Many parents fail and this is not because they are inadequate. It is because they make certain mistakes and misbehave in front of their children. They say things they do not mean or punish their kids in anger. In short, they attend to the negative rather than appreciating or encouraging the positive.

It is not that parents do things intentionally. They often misbehave especially in front of their children, unknowingly. Once you know the aspects of your behaviour that are leaving a negative impact on your child’s future, you would definitely avoid them.

Just keep in mind that children learn misbehaviour just as they learn good behaviour. Also, good parenting skills do not occur instantly. You can learn and practice to become a good and successful parent. So, examine your own behaviour and see whether you are a part of any problem or not. Enjoy being a parent and learn about successful parent behaviour.
