Label can be defined as a piece of information attached to an object with all its important details.
These are of great help in having all the required specifications handy or to compare two or more brands.
But why do we need to label humans ? And children ?
Your son could be stubborn at times, but that doesn’t allow you to label him a Stubborn Child.
Your daughter may be feeling lazy someday, but that doesn’t make her a Lazy Child.
The idea is, the child first and the trait later. Traits, if needed, could be dealt with but labels once affixed are difficult to remove especially when it involves psyche of a child.
