HERE ARE THE FIVE ERRORS PARENTS NOWADAYS REPEATEDLY MAKE:
#1 You’re afraid of your children
Example: If a child wants to drink milk from a different cup, and not their usual one, parents immediately start looking for another cup instead of ignoring the request. They fear that their child will cry or refuse to eat.
Emma considers this to be a huge mistake. Your child shouldn’t command you. You have to let them cry if they want to and go someplace else if you don’t want to hear it, but never raise your children indulging every single one of their wishes along the way. You must think about what message you´re sending them when you give them all they want just because they are crying. Are you going to do something about it?
#2 Making excuses (“That´s how children are”)
One of the 5 errors is this one. If you justify their misbehavior and outbursts in public by using this phrase, you’re motivating your children to continue misbehaving and be irresponsible.
