I know what you are saying, what is “Pesta Power”? Well if you have children, nephews, nieces or even been around children you would have experienced this Pesta tactic first hand.

With the increase in commercialisation of children’s products, children have become more demanding in what they want, advertising and hype of certain items have created a need in children’s minds for material things, that was never there in the past, this is good for the companies selling all these so called “must have products", but for the parents and families of the children it has had an adverse effect.

These days you would be very lucky to out grocery shopping with your children without one of them asking, can I have this or that. Which is fine if you can financially afford the items, or if they are something relevant, or actually even needed. In most cases all the children actually want is the latest trendy cereal, the latest hyped toy or game or the sweets with the catchiest advert.

The problem is not that the children are asking for the items but why and how they are asking, the repeatedly asking of the same thing, please, please, and then if that doesn’t work, the inset of “playing up” and bad behaviour. Most of the time the parents or guardians are worn down by the repeated asking and bad behaviour, this is what people are now referring to as “Pesta Power”.

The reason this is such a problem is because we are no longer controlling the way our children are behaving, it used to be, your children are well behaved and then they are rewarded for the good behaviour. Now the system is, your children almost demand different things, behave badly and Pesta you until you finally give up and give in to their demands. This behaviour and “Pest Tactic” is then translated into the same behaviour at school, thereby creating a difficult situation for teachers.

It is time that we all take back control of our children and their behaviour, its hard once the Pesta Tactic has set into a Childs way of life but with determination and a strong mind set the cycle can and will be broken.
