what are the causes of my child's naughty behavior?

Belief system: We do everything for infants when they cry.This sets up a belief system that we are their servant & only exist to please them.When they begin walking we begin to ignore them, since they can get around & play.They don't like it.Acting out is an amplification of crying behavior.They do it to get noticed & get their way.Parents may find it cute & send a smile their way while saying no-this confuses.

TRUE, BUT THE ORDINARY CHILDREN, THE ADHD CHILDREN AND THE BIPOLAR CHIL DREN AND THE DEPRESSED AND ANXIOUS CHILDREN CAN ALL BE NAUGHTY. AND SOME ARE SPOILED. TELL US WHAT "NAUGHTY" MEANS AND IT MAY BE POSSIBLE TO BE MORE HELPFUL. A TRIP TO A CHILD PSYCHOTHERAPIST MAY HELP YOU.
