Young children are more controlled by their emotions. A child, overwhelmed by feelings, still does not always know-how and can express them in words, and does not know how to keep them in himself. Here, facial expressions, gestures, and bad habits come to his aid, with the help of which, in particular, he expresses his dissatisfaction. One of these habits is spitting.

Every child has a moment when he begins to spit. Parents are often lost and do not know what caused this behavior and how to behave in such cases. The day of the beginning should be determined, which provokes such action. By spitting, children can express their reaction to resentment. One may come across the assumption that spitting is a natural defensive reaction in the behavior of young children. Also, a child can spit at times of severe overstrain of the nervous system. For example, they are getting into a new team in kindergarten. Some children try to show their superiority and courage with the help of spitting. Sometimes children begin to spit to attract parental attention, even knowing that they will be punished for it.

What can I do?

How can I help my child get rid of this habit? You must immediately understand that this is not an accessible business and will require patience and time from parents. First, each time it is necessary to explain that such behavior looks ugly and does not suit the baby, that mom and dad do not do this, and that if he does not like something, you need to say this, and not spit. If a child uses spitting to entertain and attract attention, you should ignore this behavior until the baby becomes bored. You can motivate a child by saying that Santa Claus brings gifts only to children who behave well. You can also come up with various situations aimed at ensuring that the child strives for good behavior. For example, you can ask a neighbor to play along with you by requesting to ring the doorbell during the day, going out the door, so that the child does not see who is behind her, having stayed there for some time to return to the apartment. Curious crumbs will probably be interested in who came. And here you need to show your imagination and come up with a character, for example, a postman who brought a parcel for a well-educated boy (or girl), and mother had to say that there are no such children here, because her child spits and give the parcel back with a surprise. The kid will be interested in what was in the package and would want to get one. Now he can be told that if he does not spit, then the next time the postman arrives at the parcel, you can take and see a surprise. And here you need to show your imagination and come up with a character, for example, a postman who brought a parcel for a well-educated boy (or girl), and mother had to say that there are no such children here, because her child spits and give the parcel back with a surprise. The kid will be interested in what was in the package and would want to get one. Now he can be told that if he does not spit, then the next time the postman arrives at the parcel, you can take and see a surprise. And here you need to show your imagination and come up with a character, for example, a postman who brought a parcel for a well-educated boy (or girl), and mother had to say that there are no such children here, because her child spits and give the parcel back with a surprise. The kid will be interested in what was in the package and would want to get one. Now he can be told that if he does not spit, then the next time the postman arrives at the parcel, you can take and see a surprise.
