How to handle a bad habit in a child?
Q: My seven years old daughter always keeps her tongue out while concentrating. Due to this habit, I am getting very upset. How can her habit be managed?
A:With the information you have provided it seems that this is a habit your daughter has acquired. This, in and of itself, does not point to anything problematic. you can gently remind her each time you see her tongue out. Sometimes these behaviours ease out on their own in time. You may be interpreting her behaviour negatively for it to be causing you so much upset, if you shift to seeing this as a neutral habit you may feel more comfortable and the need to control it, which in time will start annoying your daughter, will pass.Try giving it no more importance than it deserves
