Behavioural change in toddler
Created by Updated on Jan 16, 2019
Hi My toddler is 4. 8 yr old kid. I have been observing a sudden change in his behaviour since a month. Earlier he used to listen and try to understand the words, but now he is not listening at all, in fact he does not like to. He started telling lies. When he wants something, he should get it else he is throwing tantrums in such a way that he just bangs the toys on the faces too. He has become too short tempered and throws the things all over the house. I am worried about this Change, is it common in every toddler. Pl suggest the ways to handle this.

hi sravanthi!has there been a change in his life such as addition of a family member, or change of place, school or someone close not been able to spend time with him as earlier.. please try and identify the trigger for such a change in his behavior. most if the times it is the change in us or surroundings for change in child's behavior. try connecting with him and work on the bond that u share with him... spend time talking to him , playing with him,listening to him. also give him the much needed space and time to open up and share his heart out with u. check your tone when u speak with him. make sure u r polite yet firm when u speak with him... make sure u r not scolding him for something,and to avoid it he is lying to u.. try and make him connect by making him sit and make an eye contact and explain why u r saying No to a particular thing.. suggest alternatives or seek his opinion on how he could go about doing the same thing differently in an agreeable manner.. reach a consensus. hug him often... hope this would help!
