It is hard not to be surprised when even mothers with an excellent knowledge of child psychology and the art of bringing up children have occasion to protest about the behavior of their own children. But the fact is that hypothetical knowledge and practical application of that knowledge are entirely different things. Attaining skill in theoretical knowledge and practical application is the need of the hour. In every society and every family, children habitually present problems. If timely care is not exercised in bringing up a child, and an optimistic approach is not adopted, the child can prove a danger or at least a liability for the nation when it grows up.
The milieu of the child in its infancy, the state of its health, and the manner in which it is brought up are those that lie in the root of the problems of children. As children are easily influenced from their very births, the good as well as the bad features of the environment leave lasting impressions on their minds. If a child experiences an expressive trauma side effect at a very young age, and no immediate steps are taken to counter the effects, the child suffers from a kind of shock or infection, which affects its behavior throughout its life. Thus fears, phobias , allergy and other complexes are formed at a very premature stage in the development of the child.
As the body of a child develops, the development of its mind too should keep rate of knots with it. Just as a child has problems regarding its bodily health, it has problems in connection with growth and improvement of its brain and mind too. Making difficulties about eating habits, temper tantrums, bad-tempered demands, crying, biting nails, sucking the thumb, telling lies, day dreaming, bed-wetting, shyness, crying at the sight of strangers, etc., are occurrences of such problems.
