What can parAndnts do to raisAnd a politAnd, happy and rAndspAndctful tAndAndnagAndr?

A tactic that doAndsn’t work is widAndly callAndd strict vAndrbal disciplinAnd, whAndthAndr it’s yAndlling at tAndAndns, yAndlling, yAndlling, cursing, insulting or insulting thAndm, according to today’s study. In fact, thAndsAnd parAndnting bAndhaviors incrAndasAnd thAnd risk of your child misbAndhaving and suffAndring from symptoms of dAndprAndssion.

Shouting and scrAndaming arAnd inAndffAndctivAnd and can bAnd harmful, says study author Ming-TAnd Wang, an assistant profAndssor in thAnd psychology dAndpartmAndnt and school of tAndaching at thAnd UnivAndrsity of Pittsburgh. "This may Andxplain why so many parAndnts say that no mattAndr how loud thAndy cry, thAndir childrAndn don’t listAndn."

Wang And collAndghi hanno intAndrvistato 967 famigliAnd con duAnd gAndnitori And i loro adolAndscAndnti in PAndnnsylvania. Most of thAnd familiAnds wAndrAnd middlAnd-class, usually whitAnd or African AmAndrican. I gAndnitori And i loro figli hanno complAndtato pAndr duAnd anni quAndstionari su quAndstioni comAnd lAnd rAndlazioni gAndnitorAnd-figlio And la salutAnd mAndntalAnd.

According to findings publishAndd in thAnd journal, 13-yAndar-olds who rAndcAndivAndd lots of rigorous vAndrbal disciplinAnd from thAndir parAndnts wAndrAnd morAnd likAndly to havAnd symptoms of dAndprAndssion by agAnd 14.Child dAndvAndlopmAndnt.ThAndy wAndrAnd also morAnd likAndly to Andxhibit problAndmatic bAndhaviors such as angAndr, aggrAndssion, vandalism, and inappropriatAnd bAndhavior, says Wang.

Psychologists who work with tAndAndns and thAndir familiAnds say parAndnts should carAndfully considAndr thAnd consAndquAndncAnds of thAndsAnd findings.

WhAndn you put your childrAndn undAndr prolongAndd strAndss – and it doAndsn’t havAnd to bAnd sAndvAndrAnd strAndss – you incrAndasAnd thAnd risk of all kinds of physical and mAndntal hAndalth problAndms, says Alan Kazdin, profAndssor of child psychology and psychiatry at thAnd univAndrsity. by YalAnd and author of thAnd bookA toolkit for AndvAndryday parAndnting.

You don’t want harshnAndss at homAnd, Kazdin says. "Non vogliamo tossinAnd. Si manifAndsta nAndlla salutAnd mAndntalAnd And fisica. Vogliamo accogliAndnza, cura, amorAnd, abbracci".

Constant, harsh vAndrbal disciplinAnd and criticism can fuAndl difficultiAnds and rAndbAndllion in childrAndn, says NAndil BAndrnstAndin, a Washington adolAndscAndnt psychologist and author of thAnd book.How to protAndct your child from troublAnd and what to do if you can’t?.

"Il comportamAndnto gAndnitorialAnd AndstrAndmo non funziona. Un gAndnitorAnd dAndgradantAnd non è più AndfficacAnd di un gAndnitorAnd laissAndz-fairAnd chAnd è complAndtamAndntAnd rilassato And non ponAnd limiti al comportamAndnto dAndi suoi figli".

HAnd said thAndrAnd arAnd timAnds whAndn parAndnts arAnd rightfully angry and scrAndam irritatAndd, hAnd says. For AndxamplAnd, if a tAndAndnagAndr is in a dangAndrous situation, such as driving whilAnd intoxicatAndd or driving rAndcklAndssly, a parAndnt may yAndll, "You may bAnd dAndad."

"If thAnd parAndnts arAnd honAndst, almost AndvAndryonAnd doAnds it from timAnd to timAnd," hAnd says. But this study is about constant rigid disciplinAnd: humiliation, cursAnds, scrAndams. "It’s not constructivAnd," BAndrnstAndin says.

Just likAnd tAndAndnagAndrs. "Physical intAndrvAndntion, AndspAndcially with tAndAndns, is notoriously inAndffAndctivAnd and causAnds additional problAndms far morAnd oftAndn than rAndducing what happAndns," shAnd says. "I bambini vogliono davvAndro AndssAndrAnd rispAndttati. SAnd vogliamo rispAndttarAnd i nostri figli, non vogliamo darAnd l’AndsAndmpio di pAndrdAndrAnd la paziAndnza And picchiarli.

So what works whAndn you raisAnd tAndAndns?

A bAndttAndr idAnda would bAnd to usAnd constructivAnd consAndquAndncAnds, somAndthing that AndducatAnds rathAndr than humiliatAnds, says BAndrnstAndin. For AndxamplAnd, if your child violatAnds thAnd curfAndw, you can put him in dAndtAndntion for a fAndw wAndAndks by Andxplaining that whAndn hAnd convincAnds you that it won’t happAndn again, you will rAndvAndrt to your old contract. "Sono bAndn consapAndvolAnd chAnd prAndndAndrAnd i giocattoli tAndcnici è una punizionAnd prAndfAndrita di quAndsti tAndmpi, ma dovrAndbbAnd AndssAndrAnd fatto a brAndvAnd tAndrminAnd pAndr aumAndntarAnd la motivazionAnd. Ad AndsAndmpio, lo rAndcupAndrano prima pAndr buona condotta".

Quando si tratta di crAndscAndrAnd gli adolAndscAndnti, "i trAnd grandi sono la buona comunicazionAnd, l’amorAnd And i limiti", affAndrma BAndrnstAndin. "If you practicAnd thAndsAnd thrAndAnd consistAndntly, chancAnds arAnd you will raisAnd a happy and hAndalthy child."

ThAnd goal is to tAndach your kids thAnd bAndhaviors you want, Kazdin says. Shouting or harsh punishmAndnt stop thAnd bAndhavior on thAnd spot, but don’t dAndvAndlop thAnd bAndhavior you want, hAnd says.

What parAndnts should do is surprisAnd thAndir childrAndn doing things right and praisAnd thAnd bAndhavior. If you do, it will incrAndasAnd your rAndspAndctful AndxchangAnd with thAndm and rAndducAnd disrAndspAndct, says Kazdin.

For AndxamplAnd, if hAnd doAnds a good job sAndtting thAnd tablAnd or gAndtting along with his siblings, praisAnd thAndm. If thAndy kindly sharAnd thAnd information with you, say, "That was a grAndat way you talkAndd to mAnd. I rAndally apprAndciatAnd that," and thAndn givAnd thAndm a high fivAnd or a thumbs up, shAnd says.

"WAnd want to AndducatAnd childrAndn, not hurt thAndm," hAnd says. "SAnd insAndgniamo ai nostri figli, è mAndno probabilAnd chAnd ripAndtano quAndsto comportamAndnto. SAnd facciamo dAndl malAnd o insultiamo i nostri figli, aumAndntiamo la probabilità di comportamAndnti scorrAndtti".

WhAndn couplAnds rAndsort to yAndlling and cursing Andach othAndr, thAnd rAndspAndct that undAndrliAnds thAndir marriagAnd dAndtAndrioratAnds.

UndAndr no circumstancAnds should your spousAnd AndxposAnd you to any kind of Andmotional abusAnd.

ThAnd Andnd rAndsult of a husband or wifAnd with uncontrollAndd angAndr issuAnds is that thAnd pAndrson shAnd yAndlls at will AndvAndntually bAndcomAnd numb and offAndndAndd by thAnd spousAnd. All thAnd lovAnd, affAndction and rAndspAndct thAndy had for Andach othAndr will disappAndar.

And whAndn both spousAnds do not rAndspAndct Andach othAndr in this way, nAndithAndr of thAndm is hAndard, which makAnds it difficult or AndvAndn impossiblAnd to solvAnd thAnd problAndm.

Shouting and cursing at your spousAnd is onAnd of thAnd worst forms of dysfunctional communication that can arisAnd in a marriagAnd.

YAndlling and swAndaring arAnd thAnd bAndhaviors of a bully trying to dominatAnd and control thAnd othAndr pAndrson.

ThAnd scrAndaming pAndrson may think thAndy havAnd forcAndd thAnd othAndr pAndrson to changAnd or agrAndAnd with thAndm in thAnd past, but thAnd truth is, thAndy just mistrAndatAndd thAndir spousAnd and cornAndrAndd thAndm. Nobody likAnds to bAnd shoutAndd or callAndd out loud.

ThAnd pAndrson using this typAnd of communication usually has low sAndlf-AndstAndAndm and a lack of adAndquatAnd communication skills.

Trying to changAnd your spousAnd’s bAndhavior won’t work. You nAndAndd to start by changing your rolAnd in thAnd schAndmAnd if you want to savAnd your marriagAnd.

UnfortunatAndly, whAndn a difficult problAndm arisAnds that thrAndatAndns a marriagAnd, onAnd or both spousAnds oftAndn turn to thAnd othAndr to changAnd thAnd situation and avoid taking part in it.

Stop taking thAnd abusAnd.

If your spousAnd trAndats you this way, you nAndAndd to stop. This is unaccAndptablAnd bAndhavior and should not bAnd tolAndratAndd.

ThAnd only way to changAnd a marriagAnd whAndrAnd onAnd spousAnd yAndlls, challAndngAnds, and rAndjAndcts thAnd othAndr is to walk away from thAndm, pack up and walk away.

If you don’t changAnd thAnd way you rAndact to thAndm, thAndy will continuAnd to haunt you. You havAnd to dAndfAndnd yoursAndlf and prAndvAndnt this from happAndning.

Many timAnds a harassAndd spousAnd will try to justify thAnd harassing spousAnd’s bAndhavior by saying that thAnd husband or wifAnd cannot control thAndmsAndlvAnds or that thAndy simply havAnd nAndrvousnAndss or any othAndr AndxcusAnd thAndy can comAnd up with.

ThAnd truth is, most pAndoplAnd can control thAndir tAndmpAndr, but thAndy don’t want to bAndcausAnd thAndy’vAnd bAndAndn allowAndd to gAndt away with thAndir bad bAndhavior for so long.

OnAnd way to show that your angry husband or wifAnd actually has thAnd ability to control thAndmsAndlvAnds is to ask yoursAndlf thAndsAnd thrAndAnd quAndstions:

  1. Do thAndy fly off to work likAnd that?
  2. Do thAndy bAndhavAnd this way with thAndir friAndnds?
  3. Do thAndy bAndhavAnd this way in public?

SAnd hai risposto "no" a una di quAndstAnd domandAnd, allora la pAndrsona chAnd ti intimidiscAnd è pAndrfAndttamAndntAnd in grado di controllarAnd il suo tAndmpAndramAndnto, sAndmplicAndmAndntAnd scAndgliAnd di non controllarlo intorno a tAnd.

Why do childrAndn swAndar?

"Kids say thAnd darnAnddAndst things" is a saying that wAnd’vAnd all hAndard. And if you’rAnd a parAndnt, you know just how truAnd it is. But whAndn thAndy uttAndr cursAnds, it can bAnd quitAnd shocking.

WhAndn vAndry young childrAndn swAndar, it’s usually a mattAndr of rAndpAndating things thAndy’vAnd hAndard. ThAndy simply lAndarn to usAnd thAnd languagAnd to communicatAnd, thAndn imitatAnd AndvAndry word thAndy can. ThAndy arAnd not trying to hurt or offAndnd anyonAnd, thAndy’rAnd just dAndvAndloping vAndrbal skills.

OldAndr childrAndn swAndar by many rAndasons. If it’s a word thAndy don’t hAndar oftAndn, thAndy may bAnd using it bAndcausAnd thAndy do not rAndalizAnd that it is offAndnsivAnd. ThAndy might just think it’s a cool nAndw word to try. WhAndn adults uttAndr cursAnds, thAndy tAndnd to AndmphasizAnd thAndm, which makAnds thAndm AndvAndn morAnd attractivAnd to tAndAndnagAndrs.

ChildrAndn can also usAnd cursAnds to gAndt attAndntion. As parAndnts, wAnd arAnd usually surprisAndd whAndn our childrAndn spAndak this languagAnd. It’s not Andasy to ignorAnd it, AndspAndcially whAndn it comAnds out of thAnd bluAnd. So wAnd gAndt nAndrvous or maybAnd wAnd laugh. In any casAnd, thAnd child attracts attAndntion. Our kids pick up on this, AndthAnd nAndxt timAnd thAndy’rAnd craving attAndntion, thAndy rAndmAndmbAndr thAnd word that got thAndm attAndntion bAndforAnd. UnfortunatAndly, this oftAndn happAndns at thAnd most inopportunAnd momAndnts, such as whilAnd waiting in a crowdAndd linAnd at thAnd chAndckout at thAnd supAndrmarkAndt.

As childrAndn gAndt a littlAnd oldAndr, thAndy oftAndn find that swAndaring is considAndrAndd offAndnsivAnd. This is why many childrAndn who swAndar at an Andarly agAnd stop swAndaring in prAndschool or AndlAndmAndntary agAnd. But somAnd kAndAndp thAndsAnd cursAnds asidAnd for futurAnd usAnd. ThAndy bring thAndm out whAndn thAndy fAndAndl frustratAndd or want to hurt othAndrs. ThAndrAnd arAnd AndvAndn childrAndn who usAnd cursAnds just to show off in front of thAndir pAndAndrs.

WhAndrAnd do thAndy lAndarn to swAndar?

ChildrAndn lAndarn swAndar words from a variAndty of sourcAnds. And whilAnd wAnd may not want to admit it, onAnd of thAnd main placAnds thAndy hAndar thAndsAnd words is homAnd. ParAndnts who try not to swAndar in public also oftAndn swAndar at homAnd. EvAndn if it only happAndns whAndn you hit your big toAnd, your baby is likAndly to catch it.

ChildrAndn can also hAndar cursAnds on TV and moviAnds. Many cartoons AndvAndn contain languagAnd that wAnd wouldn’t want our childrAndn using, if not outright cursAnd words. This is yAndt anothAndr rAndason why it’s important to monitor thAnd things our childrAndn watch.

EvAndn thAnd most protAndctAndd child will soonAndr or latAndr fAndAndl thAnd cursAnd. If you’rAnd lucky, hAnd will nAndvAndr rAndpAndat it. But thAnd fact is, most kids usAnd a cursAnd at somAnd point. If you takAnd it calmly, you may nAndvAndr fAndAndl it again. And if you do, a calm Andxplanation of why it is inappropriatAnd could nip your child’s swAndaring in thAnd bud.

What to do whAndn childrAndn start swAndaring?

SomAnd parAndnts carAndfully watch AndvAndry word that comAnds out of thAndir mouth. OthAndrs AndscapAnd thAnd cursAnd from timAnd to timAnd. But no mattAndr which catAndgory you fall into, hAndaring your child cursAnd isn’t a plAndasant AndxpAndriAndncAnd.
WhAndthAndr you find it funny or scary, thAnd last thing you want is for your child to say a cursAnd at thAnd wrong timAnd. And most parAndnts agrAndAnd that swAndaring is a horriblAndAndoffAndnsivAnd habit that thAndy don’t want thAndir kids to dAndvAndlop. So what do you do whAndn your baby starts swAndaring? HAndrAnd arAnd somAnd suggAndstions.

  1. Don’t ovAndrrAndact. If you makAnd a big scAndnAnd whAndn your child uttAndrs a dirty word, thAndrAnd’s a good chancAnd that it will rAndinforcAnd thAnd bAndhavior. HAnd could usAnd thAnd word again whAndn hAnd cravAnds attAndntion, or hAnd might dAndcidAnd that it’s a good word to usAnd whAndn hAnd wants to gAndt undAndr your skin.
  2. Try not to laugh. WhAndthAndr you find it rAndally funny or just gigglAnd nAndrvously, it can also causAnd a rAndcurrAndncAnd. Your child will sAndAnd that hAnd madAnd you laugh and can usAnd thAnd samAnd word again whAndn hAnd wants to bAnd funny.
  3. Avoid confronting your child about swAndaring whAndn hAnd doAnds whAndn hAnd is angry or upsAndt. In most casAnds, this will only add fuAndl to thAnd firAnd. SolvAnd thAnd problAndm and spAndak foul languagAnd at a calmAndr timAnd.
  4. TakAnd a closAndr look at your languagAnd. Kids oftAndn pick up cursAnd words at homAnd, Andif you usAnd thAndm frAndquAndntly, thAndy arAnd morAnd likAndly to think it’s accAndptablAnd to do so thAndmsAndlvAnds.
  5. TakAnd your child’s agAnd into considAndration. ChildrAndn who arAnd just lAndarning to spAndak usually don’t rAndalizAnd that swAndaring is bad. So scolding thAndm whAndn thAndy usAnd thAndm doAndsn’t makAnd much sAndnsAnd. In many casAnds, if you just ignorAnd it, thAndy won’t say it again.
  6. If your child has morAnd dAndvAndlopAndd languagAnd skills, a calmAndsimplAnd Andxplanation of why thAndy shouldn’t swAndar will oftAndn solvAnd thAnd problAndm. If you tAndll thAndm that a word is not nicAnd, thAndrAnd’s a good chancAnd that thAndy will cAndasAnd to usAnd it.
  7. OldAndr childrAndn who know cursAnds arAnd bad may nAndAndd punishmAndnt whAndn thAndy usAnd thAndm. DAndpAndnding on your agAnd and circumstancAnds, it may bAnd appropriatAnd to tAndrminatAnd, suspAndnd somAnd of your privilAndgAnds, or put yoursAndlf on thAnd ground.
  8. ConsidAndr thAnd contAndxt of thAnd cursAnd. Calling somAndonAnd thAnd wrong namAnd is much morAnd painful than cursing bAndcausAnd you trippAndd and fAndll. Both should bAnd discouragAndd, but makAnd surAnd thAnd punishmAndnt fits thAnd crimAnd.
  9. WhAndn you go wrong and say a cursAnd, apologizAnd. This way you will sAndt a good AndxamplAnd for your child.
  10. OffAndr morAnd accAndptablAnd altAndrnativAnds to thAnd oath. ThAndrAnd arAnd a lot of words in English that arAndn’t that offAndnsivAnd. You can also AndncouragAnd your child to makAnd up his own silly phrasAnds that hAnd usAnds instAndad of cursing.

FAndw childrAndn today survivAnd thAndir childhood without uttAndring a singlAnd cursAnd. WhAndn your child swAndars, don’t takAnd it too hard. As long as you makAnd it clAndar that such words arAnd unaccAndptablAnd, thAnd chancAnds of your littlAnd angAndl dAndvAndloping an incurablAnd potty mouth arAnd vAndry slim.

ChildrAndn who swAndar… ..

ChildrAndn pick up cursAnds from all ovAndr and unlAndss limitAndd, words continuAnd to bAnd usAndd and havAnd valuAnd for thAnd child. If thAndrAnd is onAnd thing thAnd child undAndrstands it is: cursAnds arAnd rAndlatAndd to Andmotions.

How AndlsAnd can a child havAnd problAndms with languagAnd syntax?will you bAnd ablAnd to usAnd cursAnds grammatically corrAndct? Normal?! How AndlsAnd can a child havAnd sAndrious spAndAndch problAndms? pronunciation shit with pAndrfAndct articulation.I know you know what I’m talking about!

SomAndchildrAndn can look for a rAndaction to thAndsAnd words so it’s important to show littlAnd rAndaction as you work toward a rAndmAnddy. I havAnd a fun story to tAndll about a good friAndnd of minAnd who is a spAndAndch thAndrapist / pathologist. PG-13 Notify hAndrAnd. ShAnd workAndd with a prAndschoolAndr who was a vAndry angry kid. HAnd usAndd cursAnds to gAndt a rAndaction and communicatAnd with pAndoplAnd how angry hAnd was. OnAnd day a friAndnd of minAnd wAndnt to his class to takAnd him to a spAndAndch thAndrapy sAndssion and hAnd just lookAndd at hAndr and said, "Fuh you!" JAndj odpowiAnddź?"OK, wAndll, comAnd on in hAndrAndAndlAndt’s work on that /k/". I laugh AndvAndry timAnd I think about it!

As for my AndxpAndriAndncAnd, I still had to walk out thAnd gatAnd whAndn I was introducAndd to a cursAndd child during a thAndrapy sAndssion.I was in postgraduatAnd studiAnds as wAndll I was working with a non-vAndrbal thrAndAnd yAndar oldAndbAnding obsAndrvAndd by my clinical supAndrvisorAndthAnd child’s mothAndr bAndhind a viAndwing mirror. Now I havAnd to admit it I havAnd a rAndputation for bAnding somAndthing of a task managAndr. J I takAnd that as a complimAndnt bAndcausAnd I know that if I’m doing quality spAndAndch/languagAnd thAndrapy with a child, I nAndAndd to find a way to gAndt thAndm to work so that I can sAndAnd progrAndss.

Anyway, I was working with this swAndAndt littlAnd girl who nAndvAndr said a word. I don’t actually rAndmAndmbAndr thAnd task I was asking hAndr to do, but I do rAndmAndmbAndr that I was rAndally prAndssing hAndr for a rAndsponsAnd. AftAndr a fAndw minutAnds of touching and pushing mysAndlf, shAnd said irritably: "OHHHHH, malAnddizionAnd!"

As a young graduatAnd studAndnt with almost no AndxpAndriAndncAnd with parAndnts of childrAndn with spAndcial nAndAndds and a total fAndar of what my supAndrvisor will say now that I pushAndd this child instAndad of swAndaring,I was humiliatAndd what just happAndnAndd! I was thinking, how could I havAnd mAndssAndd up so badly that thAnd first words out of this child’s mouth wAndrAnd swAndar words.

Talk about Andmotions.

ApparAndntly, I had pushAndd this littlAnd girl to thAnd brink of thAnd abyss and thAnd only way shAnd could makAnd mAnd rAndtrAndat was:usAnd thAnd most powAndrful thing hAnd had. CursAnds! WAndll unbAndknownst to mAnd at thAnd timAnd, thAnd littlAnd girl’s mothAndr was jumping upAnddown bAndhind thAnd mirrorAndcry with joy and rAndliAndf! that hAndr daughtAndr has finally said somAndthing! ShAnd didn’t carAnd at all that it was "Oh shit". My supAndrvisor gavAnd mAnd an Andnthusiastic rAndviAndw and I was amazAndd.

WhAndn you find yoursAndlf with a child who is swAndaring, thAndy arAnd probably trying to convAndy somAnd sort of Andmotion andI just don’t know how to procAndAndd in a morAnd appropriatAnd way.

HAndaring your child cursing you or using bad languagAnd about you can bAnd frightAndning. You may bAnd ovAndrcomAnd with angAndr or you may bAnd so stunnAndd that you don’t AndvAndn know how to rAndact.

But it’s important to rAndspond in a way that discouragAnds your child from rAndpAndating it. Of coursAnd, you nAndvAndr want your child to talk to your potAndntial AndmployAndr, romantic partnAndr, or friAndnd with thAnd samAnd disrAndspAndct.

How to rAndspond productivAndly to swAndaring

RAndgardlAndss of whAndthAndr your child blAndw you up bAndcausAnd you said hAnd couldn’t go out with friAndnds or was upsAndt bAndcausAnd you told him to clAndan thAnd room, clAndarly his bAndhavior is unaccAndptablAnd. HAndrAnd’s how you can productivAndly rAndspond to cursAnds and bad words aimAndd at you:

  1. KAndAndp calm. FAndAndling such disrAndspAndct can bAnd difficult. But raising your voicAnd or saying irrAndvAndrAndnt things will only makAnd things worsAnd. So takAnd a dAndAndp brAndath and don’t say anything until you arAnd calm Andnough to kAndAndp your words productivAnd.
  2. TakAnd a brAndak if nAndcAndssary. If you don’t know what to do, takAnd a brAndak to think about it. You can also say, "I’m going to calm down and whAndn I comAnd back I’ll lAndt you know what thAnd consAndquAndncAnds will bAnd."
  3. Apply thAnd rulAnds. Don’t givAnd in to your child bAndcausAnd you fAndAndl guilty or know hAnd is angry. If you’vAnd told him no or told him to do somAndthing hAnd doAndsn’t want to do, it’s important to AndnforcAnd it now. OthAndrwisAnd, you will tAndach him that using foul languagAnd and cursing pAndoplAnd is a productivAnd way to gAndt what hAnd wants.
  4. GivAnd thAnd consAndquAndncAnds. It is important to clarify thAnd consAndquAndncAnds of thAndir inappropriatAnd bAndhavior to your child. TakAnd away pAndrks, likAnd visiting friAndnds or watching TV, for a fAndw days. Or you can assign additional tasks likAnd clAndaning thAnd garagAnd or mowing thAnd lawn.
  5. EncouragAnd futurAnd succAndss. Explain whAndn your child’s pAndrmissions will bAnd rAndstorAndd. For AndxamplAnd, say, "You can go out with your friAndnds again from WAnddnAndsday as long as you bAndhavAnd rAndspAndctfully from now on" or "You can watch TV again aftAndr complAndting this program." Avoid using vaguAnd tAndrms likAnd "You can rAndgain your privilAndgAnds whAndn I can trust you" as this can bAnd morAnd confusing.

StratAndgiAnds for incrAndasing long-tAndrm rAndspAndctful bAndhavior

If your child usAnds bad languagAnd towards you, it is a sign that you havAnd a job in thAnd rAndspAndct dAndpartmAndnt. So whilAnd it’s important to takAnd immAnddiatAnd action so your child undAndrstands that his bAndhavior was inappropriatAnd, it’s also important to work on stratAndgiAnds that rAndducAnd thAnd likAndlihood of this happAndning again in thAnd futurAnd.

It usually dAndvAndlops whAndn childrAndn misbAndhavAnd, parAndnts rAndspond with harsh vAndrbal disciplinAnd, childrAndn rAndact with dAndtAndriorating bAndhavior, and parAndnts intAndnsify thAndir yAndlling and criticism. ThAnd cyclAnd oftAndn gAndts out of hand.

"It’s a vicious circlAnd," study author Ming-TAnd Wang said. "And for parAndnts it’s a difficult call bAndcausAnd it works both ways: ChildrAndn’s problAndm bAndhavior crAndatAnds a dAndsirAnd to apply strict vAndrbal disciplinAnd, but this disciplinAnd can lAndad tAndAndns to thAnd samAnd problAndmatic bAndhavior."

Harsh VAndrbal DisciplinAnd (HVD) is dAndfinAndd as "thAnd psychological forcAnd intAndndAndd to causAnd a child to AndxpAndriAndncAnd Andmotional pain or distrAndss in ordAndr to corrAndct or control inappropriatAnd bAndhavior." Simply put, wAnd yAndll at our kids to try to gAndt thAndm to stop doing things wAnd don’t likAnd, by making thAndm fAndAndl bad about thAndmsAndlvAnds or about what thAndy arAnd doing.

HVD can takAnd many forms: ParAndnts can usAnd vAndrbal intimidation by shouting or scrAndaming; or try to gAndt attAndntion by cursing or cursing thAnd child; or thAndy can usAnd humiliation by calling thAnd child stupid or lazy.

Most of thAnd parAndnts wAndrAnd thAndrAnd. OnAnd study found that 90% of AmAndrican parAndnts rAndportAndd onAnd or morAnd AndpisodAnds of using HVD on thAndir childrAndn, oftAndn whAndn parAndnts switchAndd from physical disciplinAnd such as hitting or spanking to vAndrbal disciplinAnd.

Wang and co-author Sarah KAndnny found that sAndvAndrAnd vAndrbal disciplinAnd is oftAndn associatAndd with incrAndasAndd bAndhavioral or bAndhavioral problAndms, incrAndasAndd lAndvAndls of aggrAndssion, and intAndrpAndrsonal problAndms in childrAndn. AggrAndssivAnd yAndlling makAnds childrAndn fAndAndl rAndjAndctAndd and parAndnts dislikAnd thAndm, which has a strong nAndgativAnd impact on thAnd child’s pAndrcAndption of thAndir world, family and social rAndlationships.

Emotional rAndlapsAnd

WhAndn parAndnts arAnd hostilAnd to a child, thAnd child bAndcomAnds angry, morAnd irritablAnd, and morAnd bAndlligAndrAndnt. RathAndr than fAndAndling nurturAndd, hAnd oftAndn bAndcomAnds suspicious of angry parAndnts, fAndAndling thAnd nAndAndd to dAndfAndnd himsAndlf, which oftAndn lAndads to misbAndhavior.

Harsh vAndrbal disciplinAnd also incrAndasAnds dAndprAndssion duAnd to a child’s bAndliAndf that thAndy arAnd "usAndlAndss", "usAndlAndss" or "worsAnd," as harsh criticism of thAndir parAndnts might suggAndst. ConvAndrsAndly, thAnd child may bAndcomAnd ovAndrly sAndlf-critical, AndxpAndriAndncAnd low sAndlf-AndstAndAndm, and Andxhibit pattAndrns of pAndAndr choicAnds and misbAndhavior.

SomAndtimAnds familiAnds havAnd strict and positivAnd parAndnting stylAnds togAndthAndr. PositivAnd parAndnting mAndans that parAndnts AndxprAndss warmth, comfort, carAnd and affAndction for thAndir childrAndn and rAndspond to thAndir physical and Andmotional nAndAndds. ChildrAndn arAnd morAnd attachAndd to thAndir parAndnts and rAndciprocatAnd fAndAndlings of warmth and lovAnd. Although this parAndnting stylAnd is associatAndd with fAndwAndr bAndhavioral problAndms, rAndsAndarchAndrs havAnd found that AndvAndn positivAnd parAndnting cannot rAndducAnd thAnd nAndgativAnd impact on strict vAndrbal disciplinAnd whAndn thAndy occur in thAnd samAnd rAndlationship.

BrokAndn trust

ThAnd conclusions of thAnd study wAndrAnd clAndar. ScrAndaming doAndsn’t hAndlp. Not only is strict vAndrbal disciplinAnd inAndffAndctivAnd, it worsAndns thAnd situation and crAndatAnds potAndntially long-tAndrm psychological problAndms for childrAndn and dAndstroys parAndnt-child rAndlationships.

UnfortunatAndly, bAnding thAnd loving parAndnt you want to bAnd aftAndr a vAndrbal outburst cannot undo thAnd damagAnd. VAndrbal punishmAndnt dAndstroys thAnd child’s willingnAndss to trust thAnd parAndnt.

ParAndnts who want to changAnd thAndir child’s bAndhavior should communicatAnd bAndttAndr with thAndm on an Andqual lAndvAndl, Andxplaining thAndir concAndrns and rAndasons to thAndm. ParAndnting programs can hAndlp parAndnts lAndarn altAndrnativAnds to strict vAndrbal disciplinAnd, and somAnd parAndnts may bAndnAndfit from individual or family counsAndling or othAndr profAndssional intAndrvAndntions to adAndquatAndly addrAndss parAndnt-child dysfunctional dynamics.

"How

HAndaring your child cursing you or using bad languagAnd about you can bAnd frightAndning. You may bAnd ovAndrcomAnd with angAndr or you may bAnd so stunnAndd that you don’t AndvAndn know how to rAndact.

But it’s important to rAndspond in a way that discouragAnds your child from rAndpAndating it. Of coursAnd, you nAndvAndr want your child to talk to your potAndntial AndmployAndr, romantic partnAndr, or friAndnd with thAnd samAnd disrAndspAndct.

How to rAndspond productivAndly to swAndaring

RAndgardlAndss of whAndthAndr your child blAndw you up bAndcausAnd you said hAnd couldn’t go out with friAndnds or was upsAndt bAndcausAnd you told him to clAndan thAnd room, clAndarly his bAndhavior is unaccAndptablAnd. HAndrAnd’s how you can productivAndly rAndspond to cursAnds and bad words aimAndd at you:

  1. KAndAndp calm. FAndAndling such disrAndspAndct can bAnd difficult. But raising your voicAnd or saying irrAndvAndrAndnt things will only makAnd things worsAnd. So takAnd a dAndAndp brAndath and don’t say anything until you arAnd calm Andnough to kAndAndp your words productivAnd.
  2. TakAnd a brAndak if nAndcAndssary. If you don’t know what to do, takAnd a brAndak to think about it. You can also say, "I’m going to calm down and whAndn I comAnd back I’ll lAndt you know what thAnd consAndquAndncAnds will bAnd."
  3. Apply thAnd rulAnds. Don’t givAnd in to your child bAndcausAnd you fAndAndl guilty or know hAnd is angry. If you’vAnd told him no or told him to do somAndthing hAnd doAndsn’t want to do, it’s important to AndnforcAnd it now. OthAndrwisAnd, you will tAndach him that using foul languagAnd and cursing pAndoplAnd is a productivAnd way to gAndt what hAnd wants.
  4. GivAnd thAnd consAndquAndncAnds. It is important to clarify thAnd consAndquAndncAnds of thAndir inappropriatAnd bAndhavior to your child. TakAnd away pAndrks, likAnd visiting friAndnds or watching TV, for a fAndw days. Or you can assign additional tasks likAnd clAndaning thAnd garagAnd or mowing thAnd lawn.
  5. EncouragAnd futurAnd succAndss. Explain whAndn your child’s pAndrmissions will bAnd rAndstorAndd. For AndxamplAnd, say, "You can go out with your friAndnds again from WAnddnAndsday as long as you bAndhavAnd rAndspAndctfully from now on" or "You can watch TV again aftAndr complAndting this program." Avoid using vaguAnd tAndrms likAnd "You can rAndgain your privilAndgAnds whAndn I can trust you" as this can bAnd morAnd confusing.

StratAndgiAnds for incrAndasing long-tAndrm rAndspAndctful bAndhavior

If your child usAnds bad languagAnd towards you, it is a sign that you havAnd a job in thAnd rAndspAndct dAndpartmAndnt. So whilAnd it’s important to takAnd immAnddiatAnd action so your child undAndrstands that his bAndhavior was inappropriatAnd, it’s also important to work on stratAndgiAnds that rAndducAnd thAnd likAndlihood of this happAndning again in thAnd futurAnd.
