I was quite happy that my daughter was meeting all her developmental milestones. She started sitting at 6 months, crawling at 8 and walking at 11. I was so happy with her timely accomplishments that I forgot that there was something equally important to focus on. Her behavioral development. There are some telling signs that can indicate a serious problem. Consider this my warning!
Behavioral development of your child is as important as her meeting all her physical milestones. Hence, focus on them too! For me, it wasn’t until my daughter’s constant desire to be with me became a nuisance that I realized that there was something not correct. I talked to her pediatrician, enrolled her in a kindergarten and hosted play dates, and that’s how gradually she started observing and mingling with other people other than me.
Yes, behavioral development of a child is as important as physical development. A child may throw a tantrum, be disobedient, or display an outburst of aggression or destructive behavior. If that’s occasional, there’s often nothing to worry about. But, if this kind of behavior is a regular norm, it’s time parents took it more seriously and took positive steps to control it.
These are 5 tell tale signs that parents should look out for in the behavior of their kids.
Screaming and rolling on the floor
We were at a birthday party; all kids were having fun. Suddenly a 2-year old boy who was accompanying his big brother to the party started rolling on the floor crying.

The mother was confused and shouted “No!” That’s when he started screaming and even tried to open her shirt buttons. The poor mother left the party embarrassed.
Letting your child touch her wild or inhibited side is good, but there’s a limit to it. A few years ago, my husband and his school friends had organized a family get together. We had taken our kids along. Now, one friend’s 6 year old daughter was constantly jumping around and running on the sofa. She made one lady spill her soup and nearly dashed into a server carrying our drinks, but that didn’t affect her. Her parents once made a feeble attempt to stop her, but largely left her undisciplined, while she continued jumping and pushing the diners.
