If I could offer one tip for parents of children of any age it would be to get out of your comfort zone when it comes to dealing with your childrens behaviour.

For me, it is one of the hardest things when I'm busy or just plain tired to deal with bad behaviour. But in the long run, it is better to deal with things early on in a firm way. If you've decided on a certain bedtime, or that everyone eats together at the table until the last one finishes etc then stick to it!

You're the parents - you ultimately decide what is acceptable behaviour in your own family. And if you have decided on issues like this before they come up you are presenting a united front to the kids and therefore more likely to get the good behaviour you want!
Well , bad behaviour is a term that can be interpreted in so many different ways. If the kids are showing an abnormal behaviour in any manner that is unusual for them then most of the times they may be encountering some sort of problem at there School or with the friends or family . Most of the times the kids are unable to explain there problems or openly ask questions to their parents . It's always necessary to comfort them and gently identify there problem and help them in solving it. Small children do also face the problem of Stress and tensions these days that is why parents need to be more patient in there approach.
