Bad habits, such as thumb sucking or nose picking, can develop in a child of any age. As a rule, adults try to fight them by pulling back, which aggravates the situation even more. After all, for a child, this or that action is a way of psychological relaxation, and he will still repeat it, but only in secret from his parents.
For example, many children pick their noses. For some, this procedure is perceived as hygienic, and for some, microorganisms of the streptococcal group cause discomfort in the nasal cavity. Thus, monitoring the baby or passing tests will help solve the problem.
Anxious children often suck their fingers. This indicates a weak nervous system of the baby. The reason for this may be unnecessarily strict parents or other situations that cause anxiety. And sucking fingers reminds the child of the safe time when he was in the womb. Naturally, the child’s need for warmth and affection must be satisfied by the parents. Only your courtesy and patience will overcome such a bad habit.
If you are often angry with your children, then they may develop a habit of biting their nails. Such a habit indicates serious psychological stress in which the child is constantly. Accordingly, it is difficult to expect that a harmonious and self-confident personality will grow out of such a baby. And in order for the baby to form the correct system of values, parents must, first of all, work on themselves. And accomplished adults will stop bullying the baby, and his nervous system will quickly recover.
Temperamental children may have a craving for masturbation, which brings them pleasant sensations and emotional calm. The constant “check” of the genitals is also the self-awareness of the baby as a representative of a certain sex. However, parents should not focus too much on this issue, since all these processes, of course, have nothing to do with adult masturbation. Moreover, it will be better for the development of the child if his acquaintance with such a part of his own body as the genitals occurs as early as possible. Parents should not focus too much on this aspect, but still they need to clearly explain to the baby that frequent touching is not useful, and showing the genitals to others is completely embarrassing.
