It is helpful to have an idea of childhood behavior so that you will understand how your child’s behaviour might alter as they develop, so that you can be aware of what is normal and when you should be concerned .Many types of normal behaviour can be problematic, and your tolerance levels for these may vary more with your mood than with the child’s behaviour itself. A good understanding of normal difficult behaviour can help you respond appropriately and more sensitively to your child at the time when they need you most.

Children are not all the same

All children vary and develop in their own childhood behavior way; your child may be different from their peers, but whether they will be considered normal will depend on the expectations of those around them, example a typical “bookworm” may bullied in a non-academic environment or highly valued in an intellectual one. A child who is more interested in football team work may be seen as a hero in local community, even if they can’t sit still in class and yet would be deemed a failure in a strict academic school or family.
A change of environment may be the solution if your child is not tolerated for being different it is up to you to encourage your child to take pride in what they are capable of praising them consistently for any achievements , whether they happen to be in football or maths .

Variation between cultures

What is considered to be `normal ` will vary not only from one child to another, but also from one family or culture to another, if your child is from a different culture or background from their peers, they may be less tolerated simply because of the difference. In some cultures and families, behaviour that is accepted normal in a boy would not be acceptable in a girl; Boys may be encouraged to be macho, aggressive and dominant.

Increasingly, today families are more mobile and more multi-ethnic, They are less likely to have a support network, and more likely to be exposed to culture differences, In this context especially if you have moved to a new area, your child may be different from their peers and be teased as a result, they may almost certainly want to be like all the others and may put themselves down for being different, it is up to you to encourage them to be proud of how and who they are because their childhood behavior may seem strange to them at times.

Normal developmental millstones

It is helpful to keep a watch over your child’s development milestones (for example, learning to walk) so that you can catch any problems early on. If you are worried about their development, consult a health professional and / or their teacher for advice.

Children with developmental problems often have more childhood behaviour problems

Understanding your child

Children need to have things explained to them at their own level of understanding, it is important to check that any task you set for your child is manageable and appropriate to the stage of development they are currently and that they understand what you expect of them. Often, what appears to be disobedience is simply misunderstanding, repeating the same command louder won’t work in this situation, you need to try another approach.

Younger children usually think you mean exactly what you say, if you lose your temper and make an idle threat to send them to a children’s home, for example, they will remember it and believe it, even if you have no such intention!, similarly young children may not have a clear understanding of difference between right and wrong so although it is appropriate to teach them this, Shouting and punishing them for bad behaviour without clear explanation, will only bewilder and upset them which only present more childhood behavior problems later on .
