Expert Clinical Psychologist Müjde Yahşi gave important information about the subject. Naughty child refers to children who are active, disobedient and unhappy with the definition of adults. The unhappy child is actually dealing with something else that interests him at the time. If the child behaves in a way that can satisfy his curiosity, this is a sign that he is safe and it is important for the child to be able to maintain this trust as a parent. If the child does not feel comfortable, he or she will not leave the parent's side and behave beyond what they always do. This is an important condition for the child to be aware of the safe environment for the child. The situation of the mischievous child is due to his inability to define the boundaries. In fact, there are no naughty children, there are children whose boundaries are not taught.
So why do children behave this way?
The child's ability to feel safe and know where to stand is about learning the limits.
The child who does not know the limits; He experiences attacks of anger, disobeys, insults, tells lies, constantly gets into trouble, shows adaptation problems, he is not self-sufficient, acts out of his own mind, constantly becomes stubborn, that is, he shows behavioral problems.
The limit means everything because the limit is a need. It is the balance of our emotional needs. It is the clear line between showing too much tolerance and too much pressure. The child in this line discovers himself, his environment and creates a positive self-perception.
Children are born without knowing boundaries, and they are parents who teach boundaries.
So how can we teach borders, what should be the balance?
Children reflect their emotions through behavioral reactions and communicate in this way. For example, a brother who does not give his own toy can get angry, cry and show his anger by damaging the toys around him. In this case, we can say to the crying child: “You are very angry because your brother did not give you his own toy and you are hurting the toys around you right now. Toys are not for throwing them on the floor, but for playing with them. If you wish, we can go to your room and throw our anger by punching the tumblers. " We must first reflect on emotions and behavior, then use boundary sentences, and then immediately present an alternative. If our child's anger still does not calm down and continues to harm the toys, then we should give the child the right of choice by teaching him to pay for the wrong behavior by saying: “When you continue to harm the toys, you choose not to buy toys for a long time”.
