You should listen to adults
Right, kids should listen to adults but do you know this extends to strangers also? Avoid the use of this phrase while talking to your kids instead try a more effective approach like ‘you should listen to your parents’.
We’ll talk at home
There, your little one did something wrong outside the home and then the next thing you say is ‘we’ll talk at home’. That phrase will get your child scared about the idea of going home to hear your ranting then get scolded, soon enough they’ll attribute the home to where they get punished.
You’re so shy
Never label your kids with negative words, even if you have a child who’s clumsy, shy or lazy don’t tell that to his face. He/she will only believe those negative words and that don’t help matters, try to help them work on their faults and flaws instead.
