BEHAVIOR OF A CHILD
EMELIZA R. SOTTO
Research shows that the behavior of parents accounts for a child early development. Parents are primarily responsible for their children’s performance and behavior in school.
Parents should display positive attitude to enhance the knowledge, skills and abilities of their kids. They have to develop and maintain a good family relationship. This will only happen if there is better communication between the members, who love, trust and respect each other.
Teachers have their role too. These educators affect the lives of young children. Discipline is also important in the teaching- learning process. This will help the learners realize that they are important if they are given attention, love and care. It also helps the teacher to manage the class in an orderly and smooth manner. Teacher must establish harmonious relationship with her pupils.
The people in the community have a major role in enhancing the totality of the individual. Let these youth feel that they are part of our society and their contributions have a great impact in our nation. In doing so, it will help them to improve their behavior and become a better citizen. Indeed,” it takes a village to educate a child”.African Proverb.
