Spring is something which retaliates when released after compression and same the child psychology. The psychology of the child can be understood very well by taking the example of a spring.
Children are what we shape them into and whatever they adapt from surroundings. They are actually mirror of the society. They do whatever they see others do and whatever other tell them to do. They actually behave like and audience who fall in love with any fascinating role model and try to copy them.This can be tempting to see any child acting like anybody else but at the same time it can be negative.
How a child behaves or how he is totally depends upon the culture he is born and raised into. For example a child who is outspoken could have been from a large family or have been always given preference to speak up or being frank, whatever he demanded was fulfilled without much restriction.
Similarly in the families where children are not allowed to express their view become introvert with time and fear to express. There are some families which are very strict and seldom encourage children to enjoy their freedom. This not only kills the creativity in children but also discourage them to try something new. In this scenario “the spring” comes. When the spring is compressed then it retaliate with the same force in order to retain its shape, similarly when we put pressure on the kids they tend to retaliate with same magnitude and mostly in negative way. These kids tend to be more rebel than others.
Child psychology is very sensitive and hence needs proper attention and smart approach rather than crooked old ways which are not even compatible today as the time has changed.
