When I have had the pleasure of working in the classrooms, I have always been struck by the mini-societies that are formed in children, how grupos groups of children are created according to the characteristics or the affinities they have between them . You realize from the outside as children establish even their own hierarchy or role play where a child is the leader and there are others who oppose him and others who follow faithfully, almost like the adult society where there are usually leaders in power and others who follow them almost blindfolded.But this reality in the little ones is similar to that of the adults, since the dependent children or 'followers' of others
let themselves be carried away by the actions of the leading child haciendo, doing things that surely if it were only the dependent child not the I would do it in any way. How children dependent on other children behaveThese children dependent on another are usually children who do anything to be accepted within a group only to avoid being separated, even if this means doing things they do not want to do. It even seems that when he is inside the group in full interaction with others his personality is annulled and he goes where the majority group goes regardless of their tastes or criteria.
This behavior depends so dependent on home and to avoid it you have to raise children to be leaders not to be followers. With this I do not mean that your son necessarily becomes a leader, but he will have the necessary strategies so that the other children do not use him and he can say no when he does not want to do something because he will be able to create his own circle without having to be in the shadow of nobody.
How to educate a child so that he does not let himself be influenced by others
Parents, as usual, will always be brought up with the best intention when it comes to educating their children, but many times they do not realize that if they protect them more of the account, they consent, they impose severe rules or are raised in an environment too perfectionist where 'being child' is almost nullified ... they will be making mistakes that will harm the social development of the child and the relationship you may have with others .
Furthermore, if a child at home gets used to blindly obeying his / her criteria, it is very likely that when he / she is in other contexts than the family member, he will obey blindly conf and trust others without having a critical thought
Wanting to be part of the group of equals at any price because if personality and self-esteem will be put in the hands of others. Lo And what is worse, he will not be able to say no to anything, something that becomes dangerous as the child grows up because there may be the possibility that he may join with bad companies without noticing the danger that this entails.
