Parenting is a journey that many describe as both a blessing and a challenge, and we could agree with that statement in a heartbeat. Still, there are people out there trying to perfect it in all kinds of ways. Some of these ways are amazing, but others are questionable, to say the least. This is why many people try to raise awareness about the modern parenting ways they find to be questionable, and they explain why they think they are not appropriate. The posts below make a lot of sense, to be honest.
1. The bulldozer
This is not a good idea, as this is how your kid will grow up thinking that life is easy and effortless. Children need to learn to cope with difficulties.
2. The discipline
This is another true post that we can immediately agree with for all the right reasons.
3. The boundaries
There is no doubt that there should be boundaries set that your kids must learn to comply with and to respect your decisions. This is an important step.
4. The talents
It seems that too many people are willing to show off their kids like some kind of circus attraction, just to make sure others would envy them for having talented offspring.
5. The teacher
Many parents need to understand that their kids behave in a very different manner when they are not around them. Teachers often speak the truth about that.
6. The kids
It is true that some parents think that this is a good idea and they add excitement to the presentation of a gift, but it is really disappointing to do such things.
7. The parenting
Well, this is the post that we could relate to the most. There is no doubt that people who let their kids act like that will have to deal with a spoiled brat in the future.
8. The gentle approach
Here is a post that completes the one above and suggests the kind of thing that we all need to agree is not the best way to raise a kid.
9. The supervision
Nobody would like to feel like they are constantly monitored, and having someone watch over you every step of the way will not do you any favors.
10. The freedom
Some people not only monitor their kids constantly, but they also make sure they control every step of their way, meaning that the kids grow in a carefree environment that is not realistic.
11. The parents
This is surely not something to punish a kid for, and we strongly believe that those who intend to punish their kids for such things will not be respected by them years later.
12. The wellness
Here is a post that reveals something we have all probably seen happen, and it is a huge no-no. Having such an excuse for the behavior mentioned here is not acceptable.
13. The hands off
Allowing a kid to do whatever they please is likely going to backfire in the long run, as kids start to believe nobody could stop them.
14. The cartoons
Some parents think they have the right to let their kids annoy everyone with loud games and videos played in public places, but they are wrong.
15. The feeling
It is always a good idea to talk to a kid as if they are the same age as you, and this will always make the kid feel significant and worthy of the conversation.
16. The child
Any child should be taught from an early age that failing to do something is never the end of the world, and they should never fear failure.
17. The childhood
There are numerous ways to make a kid hate their everyday chores, but making them study and never do anything else is probably the easiest of them all.
18. The emotions
We know that many people think negative experiences would affect children in a bad way, and we know that things are the other way around. They need them to grow stronger.
19. The channels
We believe that some parents are so obsessed with being the ones who always brag about their kids that they spend most of their time maintaining their social image.
20. The running
This is the kind of post we would like to see more of, and you can see why. Many people are probably still letting their kids do this while in public.
21. The children
Many individuals would probably immediately agree with this post, as they were made to hug relatives and strangers they never wanted to be around in the first place.
22. The things
Some parents seem to cannot help but project everything that’s been to them by their parents to their own kids, and that is a huge mistake, to say the least.
23. The cartoons
Doing this in a garden or a park may be something you could tolerate, but doing it In a restaurant is the kind of thing that should never be allowed.
24. The family
Many people still think that being around their families is a must, but this is not so. Some families are extremely toxic. No kid should be made to bear with that.
25. The strict people
The more some parents try to control every aspect of their kids’ life, the more the kids try to not comply with all the rules and requirements they are made to comply with.
26. The sports
There are many parents out there who try to put their ambitions to good use by pushing them onto their kids. This is one of the worst things a parent could do.
27. The trend
There is no doubt that the kids who are forced to do this or that should just be left to do whatever they please. Letting them just be kids is the best way.
28. The school
Nothing good will come out of the approach where a kid always gets what they want. The parents who allow everything to their kids will surely have a hard time.
29. The friend
It is always nice to be friendly to your kid and to try to understand them, but you need to be a parent above all. There is no substitute.
30. The mess
Some parents are never aware of the dangers behind the simple act of a kid petting a dog. This might end in a disaster. Always ask the owner of the dog first.
31. The sport
We guess that many kids probably have no choice of their own when it comes to their future. Their parents have designed it long before they were even born.
32. The house
This is a terrible piece of advice that many kids sadly accept and follow. There is no telling just how many kids have been through traumatic moments they could never share.
33. The reframing
Not refusing anything to your kid is surely not the best way to think you are the coolest parent ever. We guess that people out there continue doing it.
34. The children
One of the best feelings in the world is to be independent and to do things on your own, which is why all kids must experience these things regularly.
35. The win
We guess that this post shares not just one, but two important problems. It appears that not treating your kids equally is one of the biggest possible mistakes.
36. The choices
It is nice to make your kids experience what responsibility means and what it feels like, but we guess that letting them do all the choices is wrong.
37. The age
Many people prefer to not take care of their kids and have fun with them and they replace this care with a table or a phone they give their kids to amuse themselves with.
38. The choices
We guess this is all true, but there are certain rules that all parents must follow. There is no doubt that certain individuals can not handle criticism.
39. The wine mom
We guess that some mothers find such things to be hilarious, but the kids often take these messages literally and never recover from such traumas.
40. The schools
There are many parents who are willing to blame everyone and everything when they are not happy with the way their kids develop.
41. The friend
This is an excuse that many people used to interfere with their kids’ lives, and we think that such behavior is often unacceptable.
42. The dumb child
There is not much that a person could ask from their toddler. Expecting them to act like a grown person and understand everything is pointless, and making them feel dumb for it is awful.
43. The trophy
Yes, we could probably all agree that participation trophies do not teach any lessons, at least not the ones a kid should learn.
44. The party
Here is how a post brought out a huge problem. There is no telling just how many parents try to wrap their lives around the lives of their kids.
45. The word
We clearly understand that some people would never be able to deny something to their precious kids, and this is a mistake they will not be able to correct later.
