MAIN Arrow to Kid's Health Kids Health Arrow to Child Development Child Development Arrow to Behavior Behavior

Keeping your children healthy and well-fed is job No. 1.

But the challenges can be daunting when parents attempt to teach young toddlers how to deal with immediate and sometimes overwhelming emotion. As kids grow, the emotional storms intensify until the peak in the teen years.

There are no easy instruction manuals for raising children to be well behaved. There aren't even easy definitions for what that means.

Perhaps the best bit of advice from experts suggests that parents themselves serve as role models - as kids watch and learn.

Besides finding a playgroup for learning interaction among their peers, where can children find better patterns for the basic concepts of caring, sharing, and self-control than their parents? On the flip side, kids may also quickly learn how to behave badly when overwhelmed parents allow negative behavior to take the upper hand.

As with other aspects of child development, learning how to "play well with others" at an early age is a skill set that can serve kids for a lifetime.
