Raising kids these days certainly isn’t a walk in the park. It’s probably one of the toughest jobs on the planet. We all work so hard to make sure our children are well behaved, well educated, respectful, smart and eventually successful. All that is hard enough for ourselves to manage, let alone our kids too. It is our job though, I mean, we brought them into this world, it’s up to us to make sure they are upstanding citizens.
However, often in our quest to produce the perfect child, we miss the mark on certain things. Here are just a few things that too many parents are doing that need to stop. Now I’m no child/parent psychologist but it doesn’t take a fancy degree or special letters at the end of your name to recognize that these are just wrong.
Verbal or physical abuse.
Abuse is abuse, no matter what form it takes. Any form of abuse is seriously harmful, not only to children but to adults as well. Children who are raised in abusive homes are more likely to continue that pattern as adults. Treat your child with love, care and respect and they will grow up to love care and respect others.
