Top 10 Worst Habits Children Have

1 2

6. Video games/Television:

If you give a child the chance to skip school and play video games and watch TV, they will gladly take that opportunity. Most children spend at least 5-6 hours a day playing video games and watching television. Some even die from being too obsessed with winning. This is a darn shame as there are other healthier opportunities for them.


7. Smoking:

Although the minimum age for smoking in many countries is around 18 to 21 years of age, children still experiment with smoking. Many children try their first cigarette at around the age of 12 or 13. One cigarette could get them addicted for life.


8. Biting:

Children are known to bite things and people. Parents should sit down to discuss the inappropriateness of such actions. If the behavior follows, negative reinforcement should be taken.


9. Arguing/Talking Back:

Many have heard children say the following 4 phrases to parents, guardians, teachers and other adults: 1) you’re not the boss of me; 2) I don’t want to; 3) No and 4) You’re not my mother. Children are glowingly aggressive and rebellious. It could get worse if parents do not step in at an early age.


10. Tattle Tailing:

This says it all. Children are known to tell on others, especially their siblings. No secret is ever safe with children, especially when they are mad. Revenge is the first thing on many children’s minds. Parents should not reward snitches who tattle tale. Rather, they should talk to children about minding their own business.
