8 tips for developing child independence

If you want to raise a self-confident child who is able to make decisions independently, you need to give him freedom for this. The key to raising an independent child is maintaining balance. You need to be patient, but not too condescending to the child. The problem is that some parents try to control every step of the child.

However, everything changes when your child begins to command. Continue reading

In some children, this behavior indicates serious psychological problems, but in most cases these are ordinary incorrect behavioral patterns that can be corrected. Such habits are more common in boys than in girls, and are most common at the age of 5–8 years. If you catch a child in a lie or theft, it is important to consider his age and stage of development.
