Each Child is a Unique Individual
By nature, children differ in terms of their activity level, distractibility and sensitivity. Parents and caregivers who accept and understand these differences in children’s styles will be in a better position to offer effective appropriate guidance for them.
Children’s Behavior Reflects their level of development. When adults recognize that growth entails both experimenting and making mistakes, and that difficulties are normal, expected part of children’s development, they tend to be more excepting and patient with socially unacceptable behavior. It is important to have reasonable expectations which are consistent with each child’s development abilities. When adults have an understanding of appropriate developmental issues for children, they are more effective in dealing with them. You need to take the time to offer developmentally appropriate verbal explanations and guidance to help gain children’s confidence, competence, and social problem-solving skills.
