Disrespectful Wayward KID: An Angelic Villain On The Loose

As a parent, you expect some respect from your child. You are willing to bring up a kid who would be a good example in the society. However, your effort is being hampered by how the child is taking your counsel. To him, everything you say has no positive impact in his life. He doesn't respect you and can say anything to offend you. His say is like a sword that cuts through your heart, making you angry! However, when he is in public he is the perfect kid that no one can find anything to worry about. Like an angel sent from heaven, he is shy and so cool with everyone. Yep! 'He can't hurt even a fly' Think of a perfect pretender! Think of someone who can perfectly masquerade as a humble angel on our land but inside, he knows where his loyalty is-- devil's mastermind. This is just an example of the kid that I have in mind. He may fool everyone out there, be a good boy, play well with other people and kids of different age, but when he sets his foot in the house everything changed into a viper on loose. Now, how do you deal with a child like this? If you ground him, people will come to ask why you have decided to deny your son some freedom. If you punish him through other means, he will go out there and restore his privileges through his cool feigns. Now what! Any advice how to help him realize that living a double life is not cool as he thinks?

It is understandable when a teenager does crazy stuff like that, but the kid that I'm talking about is not yet 10. I wonder how he will behave when his difficult moment stages crazy ideas in his little brains.

Negative behavior displayed at home is to get a rise out of parents. It is to get attention. Every time a parent is aggravated by a child, the child wins. Remaining cool, calm and chilly when a child acts up means the child does not get the response he wanted and the bad behavior diminishes. The only way anyone can change another person's behavior is to change his or her behavior toward the person.

You are right because its obvious such a child is out to manipulate the parents and so its good to be tactical in dealing with whatever the child portrays.
