We often experience different people with different types of behaviors in our daily lives. We learn to deal with every sort of person in a diverse way. Similarly we too come across children in our lives. Children tend to display assorted behavioral characters in different situations. Some times they are exited, happy, aggressive sad or in a deviant mood. Parents should be very careful while tackling with this last type of children i-e deviant children. However peaceful environment can be maintained, if following points are kept in mind.


First and the foremost thing that should be kept in mind is “Control”. Parents being elder and experienced should always display emotions of self control before their teens. Despite of your child showing rebellious behavior, you should always be calm and peaceful. If you also argue in the same manner as your child, then you are unconsciously laying in him permanently; the seeds of aggressive behavior. But at this stage if you tend towards coolness, your child will definitely learn something very positive from you. So try to become a role model infront of your teens, instead of being at arms with them.


Next step is “Recognition”. You are the best judge about your kids. Take some time, observe and try to recognize the main cause behind deviancy. Children at particular age are triggered by certain things. You need to figure out those things and handle accordingly.


Remember Deviancy is such a condition, which worsens if not dealt promptly. If you observe such behavior in an early stage then try to treat the problem at the very beginning. You should always be consistent in dealing deviant teens. Never show your frustration towards them. Think for different methods to deal with your child. Try to love instead of giving rapid punishments. Your attention and positive interaction with your child will definitely give you fruitful and healthy results.
