How should I treat bad behaviour?

Separate the behaviour from the child

Our children deserve our unconditional love regardless of how they behave. When they behave badly, their actions need to be dealt with (with discipline) but they, as a human being, still deserve the same love. Avoid putting your child down with criticism at them as a person. Avoid calling them a bad child. Instead, tell them that you don't like their current behaviour. It is best to keep the child's self esteem built up at all times and the bad behaviour modified.
