How to tackle Stubbornness & Back talking

Sep 24, 2021, 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Is your child too stubborn, does not listen and back talks frequently? Some of the characteristic traits of a stubborn child include your child is quite strong willed, does things at their own pace, has a strong need to be heard or acknowledged, throws tantrums and is bossy many times.

Some of the ways in which you can handle this behaviour include:

Set Limits: Be firm in letting your child know what behaviors are off-limits. Through understanding, self-control and keeping cool, you can certainly reverse the habit.

Be a coach and help your child practice problem-solving skills - Help them try out ways to solve his problems.

Avoid getting into arguments and stay calm - Do not argue with your child, instead listen to what your child has to say.

Pay extra attention to the positive behaviours instead of negative ones.

Be a good role model: Let your child see that there are ways to let the emotions out and while it is okay to be angry it is not okay to throw tantrums.

Give your child choices for the tasks you want him or her to do. When you offer choices to your child you are letting them know that you value their opinion about the things you want them to do. 

These are some ways in which you can deal with your child’s behaviour. Join this Parentune LIVE with Child Behavioural Psychologist Kiran Tevtiya to understand how to tackle stubbornness and Back Talking.

Hello Ma'am! If a 10 year old child, just doesn't want to listen to his parents no matter how polite we are, answers back to everything we say to him, just doens't want to study and attends online classes with games on other tabs and doesn't want to switch on the camera, keeps saying bad things about teachers. We have tried everything except for punishment or being harsh. It has been a recent change and he used to be one amongst the toppers and quite serious about studies before the lockdown. What could be the reason for this drastic change in him? What can be done to bring a change in the behaviour of the child?

Madam my 6 year old daughter doesn't want to listen to us at all. She gets quite adamant , doens't eat food , goes to her room and doens't talk until her demand has been met with. It's my way or the highway strategy she works on. She has been a pampered child since childhood as she is the only girl in our joint family and she has been taking advantage of that. Please suggest ways to deal with her when she is in that mood to not listen to us at all.
