At this transitional phase of your little one, with positives, there are some negatives as well, one of which is behaviour like a brat. Although it may not happen always, there are chances that at this point, your child does show signs of being bratty. As parents, we always try our best to teach our kids positive behavior. But sometimes, kids can be too difficult to handle, and their temperament can oscillate heavily.
What you need to know
Every parent has some embarrassing days, but some parents have these way too often and it can get very difficult to deal with such situations. If you are a parent who regularly experiences bad temperament, kicking, biting, scratching and throwing off items from the shelf by your kid, then you must recognize these signs, because it might indicate that your child is a brat and may need simple behavioral interventions to correct their behavior.
Typical bratty behaviour
So, what are the seven signs that indicate such behavior? Well, if your child throws tantrums on a constant basis and doesn’t learn from their behavior, then they might be a brat. Of course, you can handle it by avoiding them, taking away their privileges and explaining them how their behavior is negative through a timeout. But simply throwing tantrums doesn’t point at bratty behavior.
There are other kinds of signs, such as hitting or grabbing and acting bossy that might indicate bad temperament. Similarly, if your child whines from the moment they wake up, acts too defiant and always negotiates, then they may have a bad behavior problem. If they complain constantly that they are bored and you receive complaints from teachers about them being a bully, watch out. Usually, bratty kids can be mean to their peers and may talk rudely to adults.
