In fact, most parents don’t know that their approach to discipline and parenting may actually be making their children less
cooperative or less capable.
Could this be you?
Take a minute and ask yourself:
- Do you often find yourself stepping in to “rescue” your child when they forget their lunch, struggle
with homework, miss the school bus, oversleep, etc?
- Do you punish your child with time-outs because you don’t want to be too permissive or too mean?
- Are you and your child best friends, and if so, do you consider that the “ideal” parent-child
- Do you try to talk your child out of their fear, anger, or anxiety because you believe it’s your job to help them
- Do you yell, take away privileges, lecture, or otherwise punish your child when they continue to misbehave?
If you said “yes” to any of the above, you may be making some serious, but very common mistakes
What You Assume Is Loving or Helping May Actually Be Harming Your Kids Long-Term
If you said “yes” to any of the bulleted questions above, it’s likely that you are causing them long-term harm
with your parenting approach.
That’s because what you assume is a more compassionate, patient, loving approach to parenting is actually training
your kids to:
- Be entitled
- Rebel or be defiant
- Not take responsibility for themselves
- Develop negative beliefs about their self-worth
- Think that love means having other people do things for you
And as a parent, the last thing you want to do is anything that will make YOUR job harder or put your children at a disadvantage in life.
You’re only doing what you believe is best for your kids. But unfortunately, there are things most parents don’t know.
They don’t know how punishments actually harm more than teach kids lessons. They don’t know how
to be reassuring to a child without creating a dynamic where they stop wanting to confide in you. They
don’t know that sometimes helping a child is actually hurting their future.
That’s why we decided to interview 6 top parenting experts, authors, psychotherapists and coaches and ask them what
they considered to be the most damaging mistakes that parents unknowingly make with their kids.
Next, we asked them to reveal the parenting secrets that get kids to cooperate while teaching them
valuable lifelong skills and healthy self-esteem.
