Top 5 Reasons for Disobedience in Kids

It is natural for kids to disobey and make parents go crazy. Are you aware of the facts about disobedience in kids? Read on to learn about the common reasons for disobedience in children.

Kids disobey very often. It is natural, because they are in a mini-adolescent stage. But do you really need to worry about it? Yes of course, if they are consistent in their disobedient behaviour. But otherwise, you can just relax and let them be what they want to be. The thing that should worry you is if kids are silent and not causing a minute of struggle for anyone. They must be repressing their feelings and being obedient thoroughly now, that can be a matter of problem in the future. But why do you think kids disobey? Let us look in some real reasons behind it.

They Are Curious

Kids are curious – yes they are! They want to know what is lying behind, what is the reason, how is it possible, who has done this, can they also do this, and a lot many weird questions like this go through their mind day and night, every moment while they are growing. If you ask them not to do something, they will get curious to know what will happen if they do that thing. They love to test your limits and you got to deal with it with patience and love. You cannot get mad because that may make them more stubborn. You got to be good in reasoning of why you have asked them not to do or do a certain thing.

They Are Confused

Kids are really confused – everyday they are experiencing new things in this new world. They are struggling to sort out how to act, how to behave, what is more important for them, what is less priority thing, and a lot many things like that. They start making distinctions between different kinds of rules while reasoning about emotions and decisions. They get confused while deciding if obeying your orders is right or wrong. So they may tend to disobey.

They Are Choosy

It is difficult to introduce new things to the kids. They become very choosy at an early age. Especially, when it comes to clothing, leisure activities, food, and friendship – having choice of their own is pretty obvious and important for them. Their personal identity, their personal domain, their emotional well-being – all that matter to them a lot and they tend to do things what they think is right according to them. If you have an opinion, which is not very likely to what they are thinking, that may lead them to disobey you.

They Are Moody

Sometimes your kids just do not want to listen to you. They are moody and they want to do what they think will make them happy or they want to do something what they think will make you mad. This is a real bad reason of being disobedient but you may have to deal with it. It gets difficult to fight with their mood when they become adamant and stubborn; they just tend to disobey purposely.

They Want Attention

Kids love attention. They want the whole crowd to look at them or talk to them. They will disobey you and do things that you have asked them not to do, just so that you come up to them and ask or scream at them why they did something which they are not supposed to.

No matter to what extent kids go it is very essential for parents to deal with them patiently and calmly. Avoid hitting your kids and abusing them if they tend to disobey you. Teaching discipline is to educate. You can interfere in their moral domain (like not to hit or steal), but you have to be really careful while interfering in their personal domain (like which friends they can be with or which clothes they should wear). You can set limits and consequences and follow them as a role model. But you really do not need to worry much as long as your kids are not being consistently disobedient.

Why do kids disobey? How to deal with extremely disobedient children patiently? Is it alright to punish and how to punish disobedient children? Discuss here.

Now kids are fearless. They only do what they want to do. Nowadays it is very difficult to control behaviour of kids and make them obey all your orders.

It is not easy to raise 100% obedient kids.

It is the part and parcel of parenting. You will not find any kids who just simply obey all the orders or their parents.
