Sometimes, children behave in their own manner ..live in their own world without listening to anybody isn't it? don't you feel hard sometimes to make them hear you ? how do you cope with this problem here? children are the most difficult thing to control...that too naughty one's...isn't it? give me your views here......

I guess it depends on how you treat your children. If you treat them in a nice way i guess they will respond more easily and obey. If you always shout at them they will fight back. So be gentle with the children and talk to them heart to heart. Communication plays a big part. Talk to them in a modulated voice and never shout at them. But maybe sometimes parents cant help it specially if the kids are really naughty. Ask God for guidance and be patient.

Hm...more depends on what rapport you are having with your children and if you buid up a very good rapport with your children, then chances are you maynot be having any major complications with your children..it all depends on upbringing of your children.one should maintain a balance between how strict you keep them or how linient you be with them..don't you think so.. Anyway's, thanks for giving your inputs here....

Children are copiers. When they see others obeying they also tend to obey. If mother and father obeys each other, their children are also obedient. If they live in such environment which supports and promotes obedience they will become obedient or vice versa.
