May limes parents in dime ask i
aw. "Wha Cm I do about my child's
behavior' They are m this stage of
bmng or hitting or something else "
Having a four year old at home with a
miad of her vwa. I can sympathize
with parents who are distressed bv
.ettainearlv childhood behaviors flwy
see in the* children For thai reason I
thought it would be good to talk about
Biting is often one of the first
behaviors that causes concent for small
children by parents The initial biting
eptaode often occurs when the child is
teething and usually the parents are
the first bitten, they mistakenly may
dung it is a cute game Many parents
do not respond until the possibility of
penalties that affect them arise, such
as when their child bites another
parent's child Adults must be
encouraged to have a rule that
interrupts the behavior with a strong
"No. we never bite people because it
hurts them." which can be extended
to include pets and stuffed animals
Interruption and prevention before the
biting occurs is important It is not
fun for the victim an should not been
wen as a game The child should be
praised tor not biting
Temper tantrums are one of the
mow predwmbte activities for children
m the I* months k> 3 uenreege group
These orteo hesuM Ac beginning of
die "terrible twos" ia the minds of
of the manner in which parents
respond, with mistaken rewarding of
the behav lor despite vigorously
prosest??; of how unhappv they are
with the situation
It is important for parents to
understand that they have not caused
the situation that is normal but
unacceptable development The adults
need to develop consistent methodsof
handling these situations Any type of
attention can be rewarding The
parents niusi understand that ignoring
the child, .ontinuing what thev are
doing, and nut maintaining verbal or
physical contact such as promising,
bargaining with, or threatening the
child is the best treatment Using "time
out" in these situations is a good idea
Next week we will discuss some
other behavioral problems of
childhood My wife Vicki (who is
Cobarie ? and I hope you will join us in
Clinton this weekend. September 9
