How Parents Can React Positively To Misbehaving Children

I received another email from Clarissa Passos, the iG Manager of the Entertainment section in Brazil. Clarissa told me that she posted her interview question and my “Brain Color Clues” about parents reacting positively to their children’s misbehavior on the iG site. Her email prompted me to share my responses with you.

“Yellow Brain Parents”
are responsible and dependable organizers who value orderliness and have traditional views about their children’s behavior. They expect their children to be respectful and to follow their rules. “Yellow Brain Children” need to know what is expected of them at home and at school. They become stressed and misbehave if their schedules are disrupted. Parents need to inform them about their plans.
“Blue Brain Parents”
are affectionate and devoted nurturers who love spending time with their children and desire harmonious relationships. They want their children to be cooperative and communicative. “Blue Brain Children” love spending time talking and playing and sharing with their family. They misbehave when they are not given the opportunity to talk about what is disturbing them and often will feel guilty that they might have caused a problem. Parents need to listen carefully to their upsets.   

“Green Brain Parents”
are undemonstrative and objective problem-solvers who need a place where they can have peace and quiet from their family. They require their children to be independent and self-sufficient. “Green Brain Children” prefer time to themselves or playing with one friend at a time. They misbehave and stress out if they are required to talk and participate with others, when they do not want to. Parents need to offer them privacy and time to process their thoughts.

 “Orange Brain Parents” are enthusiastic, energetic and open-minded. They enjoy having fun with their children and consider themselves a “Kid at Heart.” They encourage their children to be resourceful and to take risks. “Orange Brain Children” like a variety of hands-on activities and sports they can play with their friends. Following somebody’s rules and having their freedom curtailed causes them to misbehave. Parents need to give them time to have fun and be themselves.

I would encourage you to utilize these ideas and practice them with your…

Little Darling

 or your…

Dennis the Menace!”
