Have you seen an angry and defiant child throwing tantrums at a shopping mall or in a grocery store making scenes for a chocolate bar? Well, it is common to see children behave in an extremely indiscipline manner from time to time.

Of course, indiscipline and inappropriate behaviour that culminates in defiance are too dangerous for all children, for it can derail their personality and self-growth. Parents may need to learn and master techniques that help them train children for better behaviour, discipline and good mannerism. Have a nice day!

Thought for today:
"It is not what you do for your children, but what you have taught them to do for themselves, that will make them successful human beings." - Ann Landers
