STOP What Your Doing & Listen..

Now that i have your attention .

I have but 3 things to said !

1.) Don’t be your child’s bestfriend.

Why?

Answer : Parents often feel that if they are a their child’s  FRIEND instead of parent that the child may tell them more, and be more open to them.

There is a fine line between being a friend to your child , & being to friendly.

One day your child may come home with a tattoo or maybe a new biker boyfriend. With you being a “friend” they expect you to be excited & supportive.  Therefore causing more arguments when you don’t agree. Picture this , what happens 70% of the time when you tell a child “no” ? they rebel right? Not always , but quite often. They might even rebel just because of the fact of you disapproving. 

 

2.) STOP making your child do sports or instruments they don’t want to do ! 

Why?

Answer :If your child is constantly doing  something just to impress, honor or make YOU happy , they could feel as if they always have to impress you. Causing more fights & arguments later on.

 

3.)Believe in your child no matter what !

Why?

Answer: Even if the both of you know for a fact your child will never be president, an astronaut, or an outer space alien give them encouragement . Without encouragement they may never reach their full potential .
