Screams, insults, blows, kicks, swearing and otherbad behaviors of children can be a reflection of what they see in their homes. We know that children learn to a large extent by observation and inevitably end up imitating everything that happens around them, good or bad.
In their eagerness to learn to deal with a world that they still do not understand, they do not distinguish between the right and the unacceptable, especially when what they imitate are behaviors of their main agents of socialization, their parents.Parents model their children's behavior
Parents have a powerful influence on the behavior of our children. We are your main source of learning, your most important references during your first years of life and, therefore,
your behavior is partly the reflection of ours. But we are not always aware of it.Sometimes we overlook the impact of our actions on the behavior of children. They, eager as they are to learn, observe us closely and imitate frequently, in the good and in the bad, in the virtues and in the defects. It is in this last that we ought to pay attention and act so that the children do not end up imitating the bad behavior of their parents
, that is, us.Educating is difficult and requires parents to be there, present and aware of what we do but also of what we say and how we say it, including the tone or attitude we take when addressing someone. And although we can not always be in a good mood and have a ready smile, we can do a lot to try to be the best example for children.If we want our children to be educated, civic and responsible people, the first step to take is to look at our own behaviors. Children need positive referents, parents who know how to set limits and coherent norms.
We can not ask children not to shout by yelling at them, or not to hit when we have a weak hand.Without realizing, everything we do throughout the day in the presence of children has an enormous influence on them and on the way of being and expressing themselves that they will have later.
Children more than sermons and reprimands need good examples to imitate.
The way to rectify the behavior of children, in many cases, involves modifying the behavior of parents. More than intervening directly on the child, we must act on ours, ceasing to shout or lose our roles in situations that stress or overwhelm us.Ceasing to be rude to that referee in the matches or with the driver who has overtaken us, to put two everyday and more usual examples of what we think.
Education is a long-distance race for which we must be prepared. It requires a high commitment to offer the attention, care and affection they need at all times while we must show the best version of ourselves to give them the best examples.
