Children cheat at school: why and how to deal with it

Lies and theft have become commonplace among schoolchildren, especially adolescents. But such behavior is unacceptable, it is necessary to fight it in order to prevent serious consequences.

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.

Second Child Syndrome: Causes and Consequences

According to the famous Austrian psychologist Alfred Adler, certain character traits of a child depend on whether he was the first-born or second child in the family. Middle children may be susceptible to second child syndrome. Let us consider in more detail why this is happening.

When the first child appears in the family, everything seems new and unique to the parents. They admire every new achievement of the child, every day of his life brings them unforgettable memories. When a second child is born, this experience is not new for parents. When your child takes the first step, you have already seen it. However, for him this experience is new. But due to the fact that you have already seen these achievements, you do not appreciate them at their true worth, and therefore a child may consider himself unworthy. He may also feel offended by his older brother or sister, which may lead to rivalry between them.

Another cause of second child syndrome may be the age difference between the children. Sometimes parents do not cope with two children at once (for example, in situations where you need to send the eldest child to school and feed the youngest at the same time). It is difficult for parents to do several things at once, so they can not devote enough time to the youngest child, even with a great desire. Continue reading
