Hi Naimisa! It's indeed frustrating to see the child misbehave with guests. It's advisable to talk to him and understand what makes him behave so. May be he is uncomfortable when u give attention to guests or he doesn't like to be formal in front of guests. You could do role play with him and teach him how he is expected to behave. Our u could narrate Stories with the help of placards or pictures how child should behave. At home otherwise also make sure no one is talking rudely or making use of inappropriate language. Correct him politely everytime he utters something inappropriate. Praise him when he is good. Also keep a watch on the tv serials /cartoons he is watching. Sometimes by correcting our language we model behavior that is expected out of children. Hope this helps!

Hi Naimisa, children see and children do. So when somebody comes to your home greet them pleasantly and don't force your child in front of them. Instead tell him before hand that so and so is coming and you have to wish them and respect them by letting them speak first. In the end I am sure your guests also understand that he is just a child.
