Defiance is most often manifested in children, considering that they must loudly show dissatisfaction with the way their parents treat them. Otherwise defiance occurs in all age groups.
Have you ever, as a parent, wondered why your children defy you? The parent should always think about the negative expressions of the child’s feelings towards him. This is always a consequence of his bad, inappropriate or unacceptable behavior towards the child. Since the child does not know how to express himself verbally well enough, he shows dissatisfaction with the parent’s unacceptable attitude towards him. Then, in defiance, he shows other aggressive feelings. A parent usually reacts to this with aggression towards their child and tells the child that he is naughty and punishes him sometimes physically. If the punishment was carried out with a lot of negative energy, it is absolutely unacceptable. In this way, the parent shows his child how little he appreciates and loves him, that he is not important to him and that he does not care about him. Such parental behavior pushes the child away from the parents, the child realizes that he will have to learn to fight for himself, mistrust that deepens with age and leads to even greater divisions between the child and the parent.
A parent often says that he gave and did everything to his child. What exactly does this mean? That you gave him food, water, clothes, a roof over your head, took him to the doctor and changed his diapers?
