Parents cannot rejoice if the child grows appeasable and quiet. They get used to it and do not even suspect that so will be not always. Something in behavior of the kid suddenly can change. He does not give in to any arrangements, begins to cry and be capricious often.
The kid very clearly shows what waits from adults of understanding. Changes in his behavior sometimes perturb them and cause desire to stop a disgrace and whims immediately. You have to understand that such behavior which did not settle yet, the child for the present looks for the mechanism of impact on you. If he understands that it is possible to achieve the desirable crying, whims, pulling for the hair, shout, then yours with it communication by such will be constant. If to the child to let know that such excesses will not lead to achievement of the goal, he will cease to be capricious, cry, shout. In certain cases you learn not to pay attention to it. Sometimes it will be the best solution. The child will quicker stop crying and be capricious if the people trying to calm him are not near. The sympathizing audience only strengthens crying and whims of the kid. But try not to be overzealous. If you react excessively strictly, then the child will remember your reaction to bad behavior, incorrectly interprets this situation and will apprehend it as an award for the act. It can have again a desire to repeat these actions arousing at you so rough indignation. You have to be consecutive in the actions. Once having forbidden something to the child, continue to insist on it and explain that it cannot be done. He will see your constancy, and it will be easier for it to adopt rules of conduct. But if today you forbid to jump in a pool, and tomorrow resolve it, then the child can be confused, and he will be already more difficult to be convinced that in a pool it is bad to lie. It is necessary to react to similar behavior of the child quickly. If he does something unlawful, at once strictly and immediately tell: "No". If this act repeats again, forbid once again and try to take away the kid to other place. For good behavior surely praise the child. If it is constant to focus its attention on negative actions, then he can repeat purposely them to draw your attention. Try to form a positive spirit in behavior of the kid. Having created houses the favorable atmosphere, you reduce his desire to be constant in opposition. Reduce the number of actions which for the kid are forbidden. Remove those objects which he cannot take; on the control panel of various equipment located in the house use plastic caps; close doors of rooms and lockers to which the child should not get, on special devices. At the time of an attack try to switch attention of the child to some other occupation. Provide also houses, and on the street there is more activity. If you left it at home alone, include to it children's fairy tales and songs. But not the TV which will be the cause of overexcitation. It bewitches, but constant change of episodes on the screen can become a serious irritant for children's mentality.
