When children are still not willing to learn good habits, specially, when they prefer to do it their own way, do we force it on them by using threats or teach them the right way?
First of all, there is no right way – there are only individual ways that are to the particular child. So it could be talking to one child, to another the way of showing it yourself, to some one else it could be narrated in a story form and so on. What ever it is, it cannot be forced upon them using foul language or threats -both physical and verbal. This might solve the problem temporarily but leave a deeper scar, which might lead to some other behavioral conflict, which is more dangerous.
At Playcoop teachers are taught to deal with difficult situations and in spite of this if the behavior continues, they bring the child for counseling with me, where we use combined methods and in 99.99% of the cases it works successfully.
