My son is 5 yrs old. he is quite stubborn. when he soes something wrong then before i scold him for soing wrong he himself starts crying loudly and starts beating me,starts pulling my hair. One thing i have noticed he does all these things in public like at his friend's house or can be anybody else or i can say when there is a third person apart from we two. Then i leave him alone in a room and after sometime he becomes normal. But he is never ashamed of what he does everytime. I have tried to explain him many a times that what he does is a very wrong behaviour. I feel very embarrassing n ashamed in such a situation because it can happen anytime and n number of times in day.. he is a very introvert child as well. Pls tell me what to do. thnx.

hi Ashi Sharma ! he is doing so, as he knows whats coming next . he knows had he been at home he would be reprimanded , scolded or punished ,but since he is out he has the liberty to do what he wishes to. so he attacks taking advantage of the situation . Ashi if the mistake he does can be ignored , please do so and if it's intentional avoid scolding him, instead seek his opinion on how to fix it , or how would he compensate for it. by doing so he is taking the responsibility and would look for ways to correct his mistake. children learn faster when they learn from their mistakes as they accept it. on the other hand when we blame them and scold or punish them their mind starts working on ways to defend themselves.. hope u will agree with me .
