Effect of Adults’ Behavior to Kids

Effect of Adults’ Behavior to Kids

We often wonder how our attitude affects the young children. Is it something crucial for their development or is it not important at all? The truth of the matter is that whatever behavior we display in front of these young children, they imitate. This proposition is based on the Child’s Developmental Theory. More than that, they also develop negative attitude if what is being shown to them is something negative like being grumpy and restless. Without knowing the consequences of our action in front of these young people, we become reckless and unconscious of the things we do without realizing that we are harming them, emotionally and psychologically.

To further explore this topic, we will provide you the list of the possible effects of adult’s behavior to these young toddlers:

  • •Socialization – based on research, toddlers who are antisocial or who are not fond of mingling with others most of the times inherited it from their parents. Social skills include the basic manners of saying respectful words such as “please” as well as “thank you”. Toddlers who were not exposed to parents doing these tend to be antisocial.
  • •Stressful Environment – studies also show that the way parents react or act in stressful situations are also the way their toddler learn how to do so. If these toddlers see their parents panic and react negatively to stressful situations, they also do the same once confronted with the same scenario.
  • •Positive Discipline – beating or shouting is not a form of a good discipline. It only makes the toddlers grumpy and violent. It is way better to reinforce positive discipline by talking with the child calmly and properly.

  • •Cat Fightschildren who witnessed fight scenes and enemy encounters tend to be more violent and aggressive. It brings a trauma to them, and in order to cope with that trauma, they do it or pass it on to others. They often go into trouble because of their ill-tempered attitude and they do not right away listen to others.

 

  • Child Abuse – this is one of the most destructive attitudes that a child may experience. Most of the times, children who experienced abused grow up to be abusive of others too. They have the idea that it happened to them and so it should also happen to others that they encounter. They do not actually care about the concept of right and wrong since they were once a victim of such attitude.

Albeit possible that young children may witness such incidents from others, what is more, important is they will not witness it from their parents because they look up so much to them. They imitate and model whatever they see what their parents are doing. If we start to see our toddlers behaving differently, the first thing to do is analyze our own actions because there is a high possibility that they got it from us since they are always with us. At the end of it, it is still the proper guidance and care of the parents that are more valuable and important.

  1. Modelling!!! I fully agree with you. I even recall an advertisement long time ago which says, ” sa mata ng mga bata, ang mali ay nagigiging tama”. if they see adults doing the wrong this and its just accepted at home, they will learn to accept it and ultimately become part of their value system.

  2. Yes sir. I agree with you. Let’s face the fact that children’s exposure to television is not going anytime, anywhere whether they are in school, at the playground or in the bus. However, as a parent, we can decide how much TV our kid sees. Thus, we cannot tell if television could create good/bad behavior to children. We parents plays a very important role in developing our child’s behavior and help them become what they wanted to be in the future.

  3. Toddlers and children who are not fond of mingling with others most of the time are introverts (except in some extreme cases). It is not a learned behavior, it is an inherent personality trait. I do not like mingling with others, never have. It is not a flaw and is not anti-social. There is a difference.
