Guiding Children's Behaviour
Work out what your child is trying to communicate. They may not know the words to tell you how they are feeling. They may not know what to do in a difficult situation. There is always a reason for any behaviour and there may be more than one reason. 
In the heat of the moment it is often difficult to think about what your child is trying to communicate so staying calm is important. Remember, you are the adult and your child needs you to be wiser than them. When we yell and use punishment , like smacking, we are telling our children that it is okay to use anger to solve problems. Children feel respected when their needs are met and there is less reason for them to use challenging behaviours to communicate.
