As­sess the sit­u­a­tion

Young Parents (Singapore) - - The Discipline Issue -

Is your child re­ally be­ing re­bel­lious or is her rou­tine sim­ply out of whack, which can trig­ger bad be­hav­iour? Per­haps she’s feel­ing un­well. It is im­por­tant to find out the real rea­son why she is be­hav­ing badly, say the ex­perts.

For ex­am­ple, there are many rea­sons that tots bite, such as a lack of lan­guage skills, be­ing over­whelmed or over­stim­u­lated by her en­vi­ron­ment or teething, Dr Tzuo says.

“Once you have an­a­lysed the en­vi­ron­men­tal fac­tors, adopt strate­gies to re­move or elim­i­nate the neg­a­tive ones,” she says.
