Sometimes children can be annoying. About 4 or 5 years teasing or teasing others are acts that give them a sense of power. The child does what comes to mind and thus feels that he controls the situation, which satisfies him.
When this behavior is sporadic we don't have to worry. But when you repeatedly yell and complain, cry, tease your siblings, bug other children, or even tease animals and insects, there may be a problem.
They act like this not because they are mean or cruel, but because until approximately 6 or 7 years old, children do not know how to put themselves in the shoes of others, nor do they understand what they can cause with their contempt.
If our son behaves in any of these ways we should not be alarmed. We can do a lot to make him become a respectful child and stop nagging.
Many times children who tease their peers do so to avoid being bothered, to get the attention of others, to discharge frustrations that they have at home or have personal characteristics that make them less tolerant. Therefore, we must act at home, because even if it seems like an educational problem where we can blame the school, there are times when the problem does not originate there but at home. But how to act?
1. Observe it: the child shows changes or difficulties in other areas of his life and we do not realize it. By looking at it, we are likely to get to the root of the problem.
2. Do not judge them: a clear and close communication will be very useful, while a conversation full of reproaches or punishments will not achieve what is sought, since the latter generate anger and with it the opposite effect.
3. Accompany emotionally: take an interest in their topics and be available to share with them when we get home.
4. Set limits.
5. Give you options.
6. Have patience.
7. Communication with the school: ask the teacher to inform us of how the child is doing to have a vision of the progress or setbacks of our children.
On many occasions siblings have a tendency to get upset. Usually they do it without intention, but there are children who do it with the purpose of annoying the other. This can affect the parents who must mediate in the conflict.
Different strategies can be used to identify which of the two is bothering the other:
- Find out why they bother each other. There is almost always a reason for it. Think about the situations when children tease each other the most so you can figure out why.
- When parents come in to mediate, children often blame each other. Investigate well since it is not always 'the fault' of the same.
- Give each child a space and something to occupy their time. Sometimes they just get upset out of sheer boredom.
- Let him know that dogs, cats and any animal have feelings and suffer if he hurts them. Explain how to approach and treat them.
- Teach him what they are for and how to deal with insects (he can have silkworms, for example).
- Set an example. If you respect animals, he will too.
If we see that these behaviors are repeated or do not stop in time, we should consult a specialist. A psychologist who can guide us and help our son.
