In this rare classical Childcare piece, Esther Ogwu, a children and NGO experts stated
" Dealing with stubborn children is a challenge for parents as getting them to do even the basic things. Parents inadvertently encourage adamant behaviour in children by giving in to their tantrums.
"The best way to deal with a stubborn child is to show them that their behaviour doesn't work.
There's a difference between determination and stubbornness. So how do you tell one from another? Determination is firmness of purpose and stubbornness is an unwavering determination to do something or act in a particular way.
"Stubbornness in children can be a genetic behaviour or an acquired attitude due to environmental influences.
*Tips that might help to deal with stubborn children*
