Top 10 Things Parents Should Avoid Saying to Their Kids
The way you talk to your kid can affect their;self-esteem. Here are the top 10 things which you should never say to your kids.
“You never do anything right”
What you say means a lot to your child and words spoken cannot be reversed. Kids take everything said by their parents to heart. So, instead of pointing out the wrongs, focus on the things they do rightly.
“That is silly, you cannot be disturbed over that”
There are times when children get hurt on silly things. But always remember that they are still kids and most of the kids are sensitive. So, consider your child’s thoughts and feelings over the issue and support them emotionally when they are upset.
“Your sibling is my best child”
This is the worst and most common;mistakes;almost every parent does. This makes the child feel that no matter what he does, he is not going to impress his parents. So, whether you are comparing your child to family members, friends or siblings, stop immediately.
“You are useless”
This statement will make your child extremely disappointed. No matter what happens you should never use the words useless or hopeless for your children.
“I don’t have time for you”
You might be extremely;busy;and do not have time. You can tell your child in another, polite way rather than saying this. Every child needs attention of their parents.
“I hate your father/mother”
No matter how disturbed you are or your relationship with your spouse is, never tell any bad thing about him or her in front of your child.
“You are not as beautiful as your sister”
This will stimulate hatred even if you are telling this in mere frustration.
“I know I’m right”
This statement shows that since you are a parent you have made up your mind and no clarification from your child’s side would convince you. Always give your child a chance to explain.
“I Wish I never had kids”;
As a parent you might say these without meaning them, but your child may feel unloved. These are extremely harsh words and you should never say these.
“I am disappointed by you”
It is possible you did not expect a bad result from your son, but instead you can say that you are surprised and did not expect this from him.
No matter what you say to your child, you should think and choose proper words for communication. It is very important to think before you speak to your children. Always keep in mind that they are still young and have their own set of curiosity and activeness. Just keep in mind that the way you interact with your child in everyday life will have a negative or positive impact on their lives.
