Does Your Child Always Blame?
Does your child always blame others for problems rather than taking responsibility. Have you wondered why your child does this? Does blaming others really solve the problem?
When you take a look at why children are always blaming others, you may see a few great revelations. Maybe they feel it is easier to blame someone else. Lets look at some of the reasons why children may blame others.
Scholastic.com talks about a schoolroom situation where a child is blaming someone else for using the big scissors even though the teacher saw the student pick the scissors up to use. It is suggested that possibly this child is yearning for approval and the fear of disapproval is the reasoning for blaming others.
Do your children see themselves as the victim? This is another reason that children may blame others according to empowering parents.com.
According to Compartment, you can hold children accountable for their actions by making honesty pay. How can you do that? You can be calm, approachable, and more importantly let children know that everyone makes mistakes. They further add not to forget to give children praise for owning up to their actions.
When children blame do you become highly upset and raise your voice when confronting them?
What could children do differently instead of blaming? According to Huffington.com when asking children what they could do differently, you allow your children to grow from this situation and even help them feel empowered. Let's face it feeling empowered is an awesome feeling.
