Question
Children develop habits
提交
Children develop habits in order to keep themselves on track. They get a certain structure that they feel safe within, when they know and can predict what's going to happen. If they know they're going to brush their teeth, then they're going to walk a certain way, and put on a certain shirt - that power and that control and that structure allows them to feel safe, which builds their self-esteem, which builds their trust in all the other things that come into that. There are great things that come out of those kinds of behaviors, its just to keep an eye on them to make sure they don't spill over into the "inability-to-function" range. A "childhood habit" could be anything from repeating something, walking a certain way, having to brush your teeth a certain time of the day, and whether that becomes an issue or not is really about the intrusion that has in a children's life. If they can't get out the door in the morning because they have to brush their teeth five times, then it becomes significant and someone should take a look at that. Otherwise, allow your children the ability to control their destiny a little bit, because that's what will give them the ability to feel empowered, to do what they think is right for themselves, and learn from that process.
There can be many reasons for a parent's child's habit bothering them. Often it triggers something within that parent, so as a parent it is better to start to look within yourself first before you start to delve into your child. For example, say a child is biting his nails. If it's not to a point where it is that intrusive, maybe you will want to watch it for a little bit. But if the mother can't tolerate watching it, she needs to understand why she can't tolerate watching it. Most likely it's because either she was chastised as a child or she wants to do it and won't allow herself. Someone she cares about does it and the habit bothers her. So really, looking at yourself before you start to look at your child is the key.
