Everyone always says, “It’s no big deal just ignore it.” That strategy is alright some of the time, but not all of the time.
Ignoring mild misbehavior is a legitimate parenting strategy. It shows your little one that their antics won’t get your attention. This means the child will be less likely to repeat it in the future.
However, not all behavior should be ignored. If it is, it will lead to worse problems down the road.
Keep a look out for these small misbehaviors and take action ASAP. Here are 6 little behavior problems you can’t ignore:
1. Interrupting when you’re talking.
Your child may be really excited and want to tell you an important part about their day. When you allow your child to butt into your conversation, you give your child the message that it’s alright.
This doesn’t teach your child to be considerate of others. This also doesn’t teach your child to occupy their time on their own.
The next time this happens, let your child know you will be busy. Suggest a few toys or games they can play with. If they continue to interrupt you, steer them back in the right direction.
