How to Deal with Disciplinary Issues in Children

Plato says “Do not train a child to learn by force or harshness; but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each.” This is an absolutely perfect sentence meaning what all intend to say through this article. The function of the article is better saved by it.

Discipline sometimes becomes a major issue between children and parents. Often it is related to the misunderstandings of both. Children think their parent does not understand them and parents think their children do not want to listen to them. The problem lies in neither of them. It is the small misinterpretations which creates such situations and leads to distances in relationships. The issue needs to be addressed from both parent’s perspective and child’s perspective.

Disciplinary problems are mostly understood as the behavioral problem. But in real it could be the mental struggle he /she might be going through or the unnoticed physical illness or any issues with their peer group and may be even the result of bad companionship. To understand what exactly is causing the trouble, we need to sit and talk with children and try to understand the trauma they are going through. Proper counseling from the side of parents can help a lot in this. But before that we have to make sure children are not feeling we are nagging them in each and every simple matter.

A friendly chat with children should also be very diplomatic and tricky so that they tend to listen to what you are trying to say. Teachers can help children a lot in this as they are very influential. The right understanding of things can be given by teachers. Many schools in India provide counseling to those children who are going under this situation.

Even after providing counseling and various other helps, if the child still faces the same issue then some medical help need to be given to recognize their real problem. And proper medication and care needs to be provided on time. Before leading into such dangerous conditions, like schools Hyderabad  focus on the overall development of children including their personality and behavior. After all education is not only the development of brain, it is the progress of social behavior, manners, knowledge and compassion.
