How to make sure your child doesn’t get an attitude

There are many attitude problems that children suffer from that can have effects on their behaviour. These include such personality traits as laziness, selfishness, jealousy, egoistic behaviour and lying. If you have a child who is showing some of these personality traits then it is important that you understand that in order to tackle them, you must get to the root of the problem.

Selfish behaviour can be something that is instilled by parents at an early age. For example, at the dinner table, the parents might give the child their food first and tells them that it has been specially created for them, then they are going to feel self entitled and as if they are the most important person present.

This gives the child the ongoing impression that it is the parent’s responsibility to satisfy all of his various wishes. This will lead to problems later in life as when the child realises they can’t get everything they want, they will throw tantrums.

It is all too common the parents are upset because their children are not learning manners properly. There are certain ways in which you can teach a child proper etiquette and one of these ways can be getting them to interact with other family members, such as grandparents, in a respectful way.

By telling them how to behave in the sort of relationship, you prepare them for interaction with the real world and will ensure they have good manners instilled in their personality.

Table manners are something that are also important, and these can be learned by parents encouraging good behaviour at the dinner table from an early age. Again, inviting extended family to dinner, can expose children to manners and encourage them to adopt these manners themselves. Encouraging positive personality traits in your children can be difficult, but it is a worthwhile endeavour.
