7 Child’s Habits That Seem Annoying But Are Actually Very Normal
5Cries for no reason
Today because you didn’t allow them to watch cartoons, they may start screaming and crying. You again punished them for that but what you didn’t consider was the fact that when you allowed them to watch cartoons yesterday, you were not disturbed when busy. Children always remember rules and never like dealing with change. Your inability to keep them satisfied ends up in frustration.
What to do
You should be logical about making restrictions and rules should not be changed at your discretion but a routine should be adhered to. Universal rules should be set so that you and your children can follow them and no one gets hurt.
6They throw things
You find your child throwing pencils, erasers, pencil boxes and other stuff. Babies might throw their pacifier on the floor and will cry till you get up and give it back to them. Babies are sometimes prone to such impulsive behavior and since their brains are not fully developed, they just can’t control such actions.
What to do
Throwing is a good skill that children can practice which helps them develop motor skills and limb-sense coordination. The child also learns what happens when they throw things that fall down; obviously, you aren’t going to encourage them to throw breakable objects. Explain to your child what happens when they throw things and what can or cannot be thrown. A 2-year-old at least will understand this.
7Doesn’t want to eat
Even though they have no problem eating, suddenly they might start refusing to eat even their favorite food. They find servings are too large and start wasting food. Pediatricians can figure out why a child has lost their appetite which can be due to fatigue or teething or just the urge to play.
What to do
Studies have shown that new products impact the eating pattern and habits of a child. Babies are conservative and get scared by new things so insisting them to eat isn’t advisable. It will worsen the situation. Don’t force your child to eat. When they are 2 years old, they will understand when they are full. When you include new products at home, it helps them build a positive relationship with the food they eat.
Coping with a child’s excessive emotions
One American study says that reading aloud impacts the emotions of a child. Such children who are read aloud to become less aggressive because the process of listening to stories is linked to emotion and behavior control.
