Knowing the background of the said stages I would choose to work with the preschoolers. Given the fact that they slowly become aware of how the world function and begins to identify the things that they most do and not to do. It was the phase where the children want to show their new discoveries to their parents in order to impress them and to prove that they learned something. Besides, preschoolers can be identified as obedient due to the fact that they tend to analyze things and they keep trying to do a certain activity until it satisfies them.

There are many things that a child needs to understand as it grows older. There are two strategies that the guardians must consider to properly help the child to develop a good character. It must act the things that they teach to the preschoolers, if a person would tell a kid what to do without even applying the practices in its own life then the kid might also imitate to follow the wrong deeds. Another one is, to build a relationship- it should give credit and importance for the things that the child show as that will boost the interest of the preschoolers to do more and to improve their ability. However, it must be in an appropriate manner, don’t even praise a child for the immoral act that it did. A kid needs to identify the difference between wrongness and rightness. If something is done that is wrong, the guardian needs to correct it and explain that there are some limitations that they should avoid in order to grow as a good and better individual.
