A misbehaving child can often be difficult to deal with. However, that doesn’t mean shouting or being overly forceful with them will bring certain results. Sometimes communication and clarity is key. This is not the opposite of being firm, forceful and enacting good discipline. In fact, sometimes being strong in the face of misbehaviour can create good children.
