Adults should take a clear and consistent position.When it comes to human, animals and even plants, baby needs time to hear the word "no".Saying it is necessary to calmly and firmly, holding the handle of the kid and looking into his eyes.In no case can not allow the baby felt pain.It is important that an adult at the time of suggestion is not hung menacingly over the child - the child's face should be on an adult level.
