In brief: Assertiveness helps

Everyone has room for growth.
If people fall back on childish behaviors that are ineffective they may be lacking coping resources (skills) that would be more effective in meeting their needs. Learning more effective alternatives to childish behavior would yield improved results. Increased assertiveness, in particular can help tremendously in allowing people to better stand up for themselves.
