What bad behavior do children usually have?
Children can be very stubborn sometimes. They only know what they want and they are usually not old enough to understand why there are other things they should also consider. And at that moment, they can be very annoying to adults. Also, because children cannot always tell what’s right and what’s wrong, they sometimes would do things that’s not tolerable in adult world. That could just annoy people, but the parents have to be patient and wise, because that’s when they should teach their kids that what they did was wrong.
How should parents stop their children from behaving badly in public?
Parents should always first try to understand what their children actually want and why they are behaving badly. And from there the parents can try to teach their children what is right and wrong. If the behavior has already bothered people around you, you can just drag your kid to somewhere private, away from the crowd. Then you start talking. I don’t really think beating your kid would do much good though, kids would be more likely to remember that you hit them instead of remembering why.
Are parents these days stricter than those in the post?
I actually don’t know, and I don’t think so. I think in the past, because in a lot of places the survival pressure was so severe, the parents were actually stricter to their kids because they wanted their kids to be ready for the world. But now you actually don’t have that much pressure, so a lot of parents are not that strict. However, in the past, there were fewer things to learn at a young age. And when you look at kids now, in middle school they are already studying what their parents study in college. So sometimes parents these days may also push their kids hard and urge them to move forward, simply because there are so much to learn.
Whose influence on children is more important? Friends or parents ?
I think parents, influence is always more important. Because the parents would really affect a child’s attitude towards life. And if the parents are teaching the kid well, the kid will only have friends who are also decent guys. Is the parents are kind people, always speak softly, always talks with reasons, the kid is really not likely to develop a close friendship with a person who has a short temper or a bully. So I think parents are more important.
