Understanding the psychology of the kids and inspiring them for creative work is always a big challenge and difficult work for the parents.
The kids are having their own temperament and will not listen to things so easily. Some kids are relatively sober and obey their parents but some are a bit stubborn and adamant and will not agree to any proposition.
In such cases, the parents have to be very patient and devise ways to control and manage them with innovative techniques. One thing which is of prime importance is reward and punishment. Whenever they fight or nag or create problem do not appease them by chocolates or dolls or toys rather keep them suffering for some time and then only when it is the usual meals time give them food or other eatables. At the same time if they obey and work properly, award them something which they relish ranging from eatables to outing and going to movies or fun places.
This appears to be easy task but requires a lot of efforts from the parents side. We should not depend on the servants or maids in this matter.
There is an old saying that spare the rod and spoil the child. So, at times, we have to be a bit tough and handle them sternly.
In this matter, please note that some children are mentally weak since birth and their grasping and understanding are below the normal kids. We have to treat them in a different way as tough handling will sometimes subdue them and there is always a danger of them going in to the depression.
In case of any severe problem in this regard, we can take the advice of child psychologists also who can give a long time solutions for such situations.
Knowledge is power.
