As children grow and learn, they depend on you to keep them safe and teach them what is and is not good behaviour.
As your child becomes more independent, they may start to push your boundaries. This can be really challenging as a parent!
It helps to know that this is how children begin to understand the world around them and how their actions affect others. Young children’s brains are still developing and they don’t yet have the ability to control their emotions. Young children need support from an understanding adult to help them make sense of these feelings.
