By the age of 4 yrs old, your child should be socialised. This means your child should be respectful, pleasant to be around and be liked by others, if not, your child will grow up feeling rejected and find themselves on the outside.
From an early age, parents need to set clear expectations and boundary’s with their children, and be consistent once the boundary’s are in place.
Lets face it, children push boundary’s and will keep pushing boundary’s, it’s in their DNA. They want what there siblings have, they want to eat all the sweets, they want to be the center of attention, this type of behaviour is normal to the child, but it needs to be dealt with.
Failure to deal with entitled, aggressive and selfish behaviour is setting your child up for a life of rejection and loneliness. This video talks about why it is important for your child to be socially developed.
At Pacific Learners, we are passionate about our children having a great start to life and preparing for the journey ahead.
