I was recently talking to a few parents about their children and behavior. Some are really having difficulty with how their children behave. I started Googling child behavior and I came across a checklist called the Child Behavior Checklist.
“The Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL) is a widely-used method of identifying problem behavior in children. It is a component in the Achenbach System of Emperically Based Assessment developed by Thomas M. Achenbach. Problems are identified by a respondent who knows the child well–usually a parent or teacher. There are two versions of the checklist. The preschool checklist (CBCL/1½-5) is intended for use with children aged 18 months to five years. The school-age version (CBCL/6-18) is for children aged six to 18 years.” I am not sure if this test would be helpful but it could be a start.

I think all children go through different stages. Some have The Terrible Two’s. Some have The Terrible Three’s. Some have terrible teen and even adult years! All children are different. But as parents it is our responsibility to be there every step of the way. Parenting is a hard job. There is no written description of responsibilities. We have to find a way to connect to them on their level, otherwise they may end upon a destructive path.
Every stage of their lives is different but at the same time the same principles still exists. Love, care and understanding are the keys to connecting with our children. So when I say I got 99 problems, but my child ain’t one–I mean that I am striving to be that parent that loves, cares and understands my child through all stages of their development so that they remain on the right path. I am dedicated to helping them through whatever may come their way because their lively hood depends on it.
