Children are not just a little adult. They started growing their personality enrichment intellectually,  socially and emotionally on their way to become adult. They are keen observant what's happening around in their surrounding, thinking, learning and asking question why? When parents realize this things about how their children grow, there is less strain on both parents and children. Family togetherness at home or on any occasion can be more enjoyable and successful if given an attention by parents to develop their personality. A child does not think like an adult but they have the same craving for attention, or see the world the same perception as adults are doing. He can even help parents plan for everyone to enjoy.

During their younger age, parents should teach their children to develop a foundation of respect and honesty and teaching them about proper behavior. Their innocence and trust make them vulnerable to be influence  by other people. They look to their parents, older brothers and sisters as model for good behavior to follow. Children has the crucial time for laying the proper foundation of learning. 

Parents should be constantly alert to the influences around their children and work hard to teach them humility and good behavior. Parents often unknowingly lead children astray through uncaring, unthinking and inconsistent behavior. Parents are responsible if they have not taught their children the things they must know.

They have child-like affection to being held and cuddled. They liked being carried, tossed and sit in the lap of their parents and older brothers and sisters. Children only aware of their own viewpoint, wants and experiences by doing things over and over to learn about many things. They enjoyed repeated gestures and touches, playing with objects, putting it in his mouth and throwing them. All this characteristics will show how children is very fragile in their emotion that need to be guided at all times.

A child still think the world is the way he sees it, not understanding that there can be more than one reason for anything. He cannot understand other's need. He cannot keep a lot of ideas in his head for very long, so he turn to other things when his attention lags or he get bored.

How you can help him?

-Give him affection, correct his behavior with patience and love. He has limited attention span, he will listen only to those things that interest him.

-Challenge his mental and sensory abilities. Provide repetition then he can learn more.  

Don't try to teach other kind of discipline or rules he cannot understand. Impose rules consistenty and apply it to him to develop respect. 

-Respond to him in positive ways to help him feel good about himself.

-Introduce rules but keep it simple. Be firm and consistent. Help the child to be successful so that he can develop self-confidence. Show how obedience will help him grow.
