Using an Academic Approach to Teaching Toddlers Good Behaviors

Teaching a child good behaviors can be achieved by approaching the task with an academic outlook. Teachers are trained how to present and educate a person in a given subject. The teacher could not teach the subject without having some knowledge about it. In fact, the teacher is usually able to solve any problems or questions that may arise related to the subject.

Imagine if this same principle was applied to parenting. Parents want their children to have good behaviors, manners and social skills. Who is going to teach them these things? In most cases, that job falls on the parents’ shoulders. Using the teaching example, that would indicate the parent must have some experience or knowledge about the desired behaviors before they can teach them to their child.

Parents must acknowledge their role in the teaching process and examine their own behaviors, manners and social skills. Are the parents setting a good example for the child to follow? If no, then that is the first thing that must change. If yes, then it is time to look at the presentation of these skills the parents want the child to learn.

Teachers are trained to believe children are trying to learn. Parents often assume the child is misbehaving on purpose. Unfortunately, most parents become frustrated when a child is not behaving the way they want and are quick to discipline the child. If parents can adjust their thinking to assume the best of the child, it will help calm their frustrations. It takes some time and practice to learn any new skill, whether it is academic or behavioral. Parents must acknowledge this and give the child the necessary feedback and encouragement to learn each new behavior.

Do you want to learn exactly how to eliminate your child’s out-of-control and defiant behavior without using Punishments, Time-Outs, Behavioral Plans, or Rewards?
