Don't Criticise Your Child
One comment I have heard and just makes me cringe is when someone will say “That Child is Bad.” No child is bad, they choose bad behaviors. Another thing I have heard parents tell their children is “Stop being a brat.” I do not like when parents do that. Parents need to discipline the behaviors of the child and stop using words that can be very hurtful now and later in life. We say “What you just did was not good” or “We are not happy with what you did.” This way, they know we did not like the behavior they used but we still love them!
