B – The second in the alphabets which has traits like bold, bright , busy.
What to teach
Bold – Being bold is having the ability to say and exhibit without having fear. The child has to be taught to be bold enough to voice out what they feel. This could be taught in a way that they don’t sound harsh. The term is like to use here is bodacious which is bold and audacious in unison. If the child doesn’t like to do something or say something the child should voice it out rather than doing it just for the sake of being told. If that would be wrong we could always jump in and weigh in the reasoning from the child’s point of view.
Busy – Being busy is keeping themselves occupied. The child could either read a book, play with a toy . The child needn’t be let idle . It’s always better to keep them occupied with some activity on their own or involve them with us.
Bright – Being bright is the quick intuitive thinking that the child can be taught to cultivate. Rather than depending on someone to be instructed on what needs to be done, the child could bring out what he/she has an idea of action. This could be something that we could accept or put into action or something that needs minute corrections. But that spontaneous thinking of coming up with the idea or thoughts is what we should make them capable of.
What not to teach
Boisterous – Boisterous means being noisy. A child should always be made to talk in a polite tone no matter what. We’ve seen in adults people often raising voices just to prove what they say is right. Something wrong is wrong no matter in what higher tone you put that in. So it is always better to train them to be soft spoken at home which would help them at a later stage.
Belligerent – This is often a term used when someone is highly argumentative. The child could always ask for a reason but cannot pick up an argument with each and everything. If you find this earlier this should be corrected.
