If possible accompany the child to picnics or outings.This enables maximum chances of interaction.
Parents need to give choices to difficult children, for example- what would he like to have for breakfast? Bread or milk; what would he like to play? Kids Online Games or outdoor games. Choices matter a lot while handling difficult children as it provides flexibility to them. A difficult child doesn’t like forced decisions. So the parents should be careful about all this.
