Quick Parenting Question

Avatar

I feel like since around the time my youngest son was a 1-and-a-half year old, the word I’ve used the most often in my life is ‘Don’t’ or ‘Don’t…blank__blank___blank.’

Anyone else feel the same way? I need some sort of I’m-not-doing-it-wrong confirmation in the comment box that I’m not parenting wrong. Please tell me I’m not the only one experiencing fatherhood this way.

Lie to me if you have to.

  • Oh man. You nailed it. I even asked my mother and father if they think my 3 year old might have A D D the last time they visited. He doesn’t listen. I have to say don’t multiple times before he quits playing with the vacuum cord or the curtain draw strings.

    • So always be positive…hey son I see that fork in your hand and I see that outlet inches away from you but I know your a really good boy and you wont jam it in there. I’m positive your too smart for that and thanks for never needing my advice and always understanding what to do without my guidance, and thanks for all the help around the house too. Let me know if there’s anything I can do for you before you put yourself to bed for the night. Thanks.

  • If you’re this self conscious about it I doubt you’re hurting his progress. It’s the parents that have no clue they’re even doing it with no self awareness at all to speak of that need to worry about it.

  • Of course it’s better to be positive around the kids at a young age, but they also need discipline. No one is going to tell you how to be a parent and if they do they shouldn’t. Every situation is different. The fact that you’re always with them and show that you love them is always going to be the most important thing. Maybe instead of saying “don’t do this” when they are doing something wrong, say “hey, let’s go over here and do this” and steer them over to something else they like if it bothers you that much. It’s not like you are running around saying Fuck. All your saying is don’t.
