11 Parenting Mistakes That Ruin a Child’s Growth

  • Published: 15 June 2019
  • All parents have their own – unique – way of bringing up their kids. Many of them work in order to be able to buy new toys for them, others are strict because they want their children to be disciplined and goal-oriented, others give their children a choice and teach them to make decisions on their own. Every family has its own ways of upbringing, but there is one thing that all parents have in common: when they look back, they all want to fix some of the mistakes they made in the past.

    The first years of a child’s life are a magical time that you should enjoy. Because in the future, you might regret some lost opportunities. So, take a look at the things that many parents regret in order to avoid repeating the same mistakes.

    - Reprimanding a child for something they did wrong is totally normal. But sometimes parents go overboard and it turns into nitpicking.
    - Even if you think you have a good reason to miss your child's school play, do your best to be present. Find time to visit grandma, go to the theatre, decorate your house for the holidays.
    - Of course, simply playing creative games with your kids won’t necessarily make them great artists or musicians in the future. But, hey, there’s always a chance. Doing this has a lot of other advantages as well.
    - Obviously, not taking photos won’t have any bad impact on your kids’ lives. But it’s the best way to capture amazing moments that you don’t want to forget.
    - “You’re too young to decide”, “Adults know better” are probably phrases you heard quite often when you were a kid. But this kind of attitude from parents can have a serious impact on a kid’s future.
    - Communication between parents and kids is probably the most important thing in upbringing. So if you don’t put aside enough time for it, one day you’ll wake up and realize that your child has grown up already and is living their own life.
    - Without education on personal finance and responsible spending, children don’t understand the real worth of money. And when they grow up, they find it hard to manage their own income.
    - Good memories from our childhood are a real treasure for most of us. We like to go back in our mind to that time when we were carefree, and quite often every day was filled with doing something for the first time.
    - Hugs are not only a perfect way to show affection, but also scientifically proven to be good for our health, because they help protect against stress.
    - Kids get confused about what’s allowed and what’s not. Without clear boundaries, they probably won’t behave the way you want them to, and obedience issues become inevitable.
    - Never forget that YOU are the parent, so it’s up to you to decide what’s best for your kids. Also, don’t let strangers scold your child for misbehaving.

      video is good but the example of why you cant bring every dog home is wrong.. disease!.. promoting bad opinions on poor strays that have a hard life already. and teaching your kid to fear poor animals due to lurgies...shame

            A mistake I definitely see alot of parents do is not hugging their children enough...for goodness sake show ur kid that u love them! I dk if it's some sort of " I'm too cool to do that" or a " he's gonna be soft thing"
            the ignorance of some people amazes me...

                                  No parent is perfect. We all make mistakes. Mine made mistakes but I had a happy childhood. There are a few bad memories but mostly good.

                                      I have few (maybe 3) fond child hood memories of my parents. Most of the the mistakes the narrorator said parents make was made by my parents... the mistakes had a negative impact on me even now as an adult.

Actually sometimes we laugh n shocked also that my little kid is talking so maturely but we're happy that he learn something on his own. Thank u bright side cz it will give lots of parents best ideas to tackle with their children n parents will learn so many things which surely help in the future😀

                                                                        Find someone to talk to. Tell your parents about this. If they're supportive, go to a psychiatrist. But if they're not supportive, just google some helpline numbers who help people to battle with depression. Since you commented here, I'm sure you'll be able to search for your options.
                                                                        Talk with your friends, even if you're a boy. They'll always help you. Always know that people who actually know you will help you better than strangers!

My parents were nothing short of monstrous, and I was eventually removed. No, all parents do not do so and so. You should say “most” not “all”, in my opinion. Then it wouldn’t erase the experience of people like me. It is also simply more accurate.
