What lies do parents usually tell their children?
1. You don’t have to worry
Part of raising a child involves answering his or her questions. And this can sometimes be a little overwhelming, especially when it comes to asking you the same thing 100 times. When the little one asks you things as an adult, of course you’d like to tell him that he doesn’t have to worry about those topics. But watch out for the context in which everything takes place! This often happens when little ones run into family conflicts, financial problems, or other adult issues.
But children worry when they feel that something is wrong. Yeah Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like BT aint for me either.
2. You’re too young to know that
If you’ve ever met a child, you know he’s a curious creature. If there is something that interests him, chances are he will ask you about it, no matter how complicated it may be for him. It is very easy to tell him that he is too young to know or understand anything and to avoid the whole situation.
But is this the best approach? When children ask a question about intimate relationships or genitals, you may be so confused as to avoid the question. But the truth is that your dwarf can learn certain things about the human body. If it’s big enough to ask you a question, then it’s big enough to know at least the basics.
3. Your drawing is fantastic
There is no doubt that every parent knows the situation in which their child’s prolific works of art are involved. And they are probably hanging on many walls in your house.
You never have enough drawings with the two-dimensional family and that yellow sun in the corner of the sheet, do you? Of course, you feel the need to lie to your child and tell him or her that his or her last work of art should be at the Louvre Museum. Children often bring strange works of art to their parents, and the only way to respond is through praise. Even if you have no idea what they wanted to express through their art, you have to pretend you realize it. There’s a little artist in every kid, right? It is important to cultivate this creative development of your child.
4. You shouldn’t be upset
Adults can be involved in difficult situations, which can be overwhelming. In addition, they may make them a little insensitive to their children’s problems, which may not really be real problems.
The little one dropped the ice cream from his hand and prepares to be upset for a few hours. And you tell her not to worry, not to get upset, because you’ll take another. Does that sound familiar to you? But this is not the best way to go about it. The truth is that it is an important situation for the child. And when you tell him that what he feels is not important, the little one is confused. He’s upset, even if it seems unimportant to you. So it is better to try to reassure your child and validate his feelings, than to impose your own opinions on a problem.
