Something that happens to almost every parent are children having temper tantrums and misbehaving, without them even recognizing the issue. Luckily, for you, here, we’re going to present you 5 errors that every parent makes and should stop making them right now!
If you don’t react to these little behaviours and actions in time, you will bring about certain repercussions in your children’s lives.
That was also confirmed by Mrs. Emma Jenner, a very famous woman known for her show on TLC “Take Home Nanny”. There, she revealed 5 errors parents make that sooner or later would suffer the consequences.
According to Emma, it is vital that parents start demanding more from their children or to expect more from them and involve them in their endeavours and difficulties. To give them less, in order to force them to get themselves going. To challenge them.
HERE ARE THE FIVE ERRORS PARENTS NOWADAYS REPEATEDLY MAKE:
#1 You’re afraid of your children
Example: If a child wants to drink milk from a different cup, and not their usual one, parents immediately start looking for another cup instead of ignoring the request. They fear that their child will cry or refuse to eat.
Emma considers this to be a huge mistake. Your child shouldn’t command you. You have to let them cry if they want to and go someplace else if you don’t want to hear it, but never raise your children indulging every single one of their wishes along the way. You must think about what message you´re sending them when you give them all they want just because they are crying. Are you going to do something about it?
#2 Making excuses (“That´s how children are”)
One of the 5 errors is this one. If you justify their misbehaviour and outbursts in public by using this phrase, you’re motivating your children to continue misbehaving and be irresponsible.
Children are actually capable of doing much more than their parents can expect. This goes for respect, manners, everyday domestic work, generosity and self-control.
Emma claims that you should raise the expectations you have for your children, that way you’ll teach them how to behave properly.
#3 You don’ let others scold them
Back in the day, teachers and professors could scold our children when they behaved improperly.
They were our eyes and ears when the children were out of our sight. Nowadays this is almost impossible, because if a teacher or an employee gives a piece of their mind to a child, parents tend to get mad. They don´t even try to find out what happened to cause this kind of a reaction from a superior. If you act like this, you’re basically telling your children to misbehave and that neither you, nor the teacher, or the employee would do anything to stop them.
#4 Children come in the first place
One of the 5 errors is this one, too. Parents tend to look after their children too much. It’s good for the evolution, but we should also create a timetable adaptable to children’s needs, such as food, clothes, nursing and others.
