Parents are the role models of their children. Kids follow their parents in whatever they do. It is therefore necessary to share your experiences with a child. Sharing things with a child boosts trust and helps build a strong relationship.
Sharing is good as it promotes better connection between a parent and a child. But telling your child everything without a filter is not preferable. Many things that you share with a child are inappropriate. Using dirty words in front of children can influence them negatively. Sometimes not just these dirty words affect the child, but using some positive phrases repeatedly can also spoil the child.
Parents sometimes do not bother when speaking in front of their child about many things. Children then keep in mind those words and use it with other people. To change these bad habits of your child it is first necessary to change your own. Certain things that parents must avoid around kids are:
Stop bribing your child
“If you do this work, I will give you a gift.” Almost every parent has used these lines to bribe their kids for completing a task like drinking milk, or eating food. Bribing kids for completing certain task encourages them to work for getting something in return. While positive feedback is recommended, repeatedly bribing child to get work done will make it a never-ending habit in them. In addition, they will always find the easy way out to do things. Motivating child to work as a helping hand to the parents might be a better approach.
Avoid comparing your child with others
Nobody will ever know the reason behind comparing one’s own child with others. Everyone is different having his or her own talents and skills. It is therefore not appreciable to compare your kid with others or your own kids. Siblings and jealousy go hand in hand and your comparison will only fuel up this rivalry. Parents must appreciate the kids for right things and the kid will do well in whatever he does.
Try again and harder
When a child has done some work assigned by you, it is obvious that he has put in all his efforts to make it perfect as per their capability. Nagging them repeatedly to make it better can irritate them. Parents must avoid telling their child to do things again just because they do not like it.
There is handful of words that parents use in front of their children, which they must completely avoid. Parents sometimes with their harsh words can hurt the sentiments of their children. It is important on the part of parents to take care of what they speak in front if their child to avoid bitterness in their relationship.
