From our article you will learn what topics should not, under any circumstances, be discussed in the presence of a child.

Many years ago, my mother confided to her friend in my presence. I was still a preschooler and my mother did not pay attention to me and The spoken words struck me so much that I could not calm down for a long time, because they were poorly perceived in my mind. I still remember those words and my reaction.

Parents need to remember that the child will perceive the information he hears in his own way and may suffer psychologically. If you think that he is busy with his own business and does not hear your conversation, then you are deeply mistaken. Remember that children hear everything, fix it and perceive it in their own way.

– You can not talk about the secrets of strangers.

Other people’s secrets regarding your friends or your baby should not be discussed in the presence of a child. He can accidentally convey what he heard, and you will get an unpleasant embarrassment. And the child can change his attitude towards friends.

– Criticize your child.

Hearing hurtful words, the child will perceive your criticism and as dislike for himself and betrayal. Let him not hear a word of condemnation or disappointment.

– Do not engage in self-criticism.

If you constantly talk about yourself as a fat cow, and about your spouse as a loser, then it will be difficult for the child to perceive you differently. The child will quickly believe that his parents are insecure people and stop respecting them.

– Do not show your addiction to unhealthy food.

It must be remembered that parents are an example for the child in all matters. Whom does he look up to? Therefore, if you constantly consume chips, sausage and sweets, then the child will not understand your talk about their harm. He won’t eat bad oatmeal or soup if you don’t eat them yourself and speak negatively about such food.

– Do not show your addiction to harmful activities (games, phone or computer).

The child will soon begin to reach out for such activities, but you will not be able to make comments. If you constantly brag about your achievements in games or hang on the phone for hours, then you are pushing your child to such activities.

– Do not discuss the school, teachers and kindergarten teachers.

The child will understand everything in his own way, and can show his claims in the kindergarten. He will cease to respect the teacher and listen to his lessons. All this can lead to a major conflict and a change of school.

– Spare the child from listening to your quarrels.

It is necessary to stop all quarrels in front of the child, especially to draw him into the showdown. The child is equally sorry for each parent, and he can have a hard time experiencing such conflicts.

– Do not discuss money problems.

A growing child is well aware that his well-being depends on the availability of money and their absence can negatively affect all aspects of his life. In such a situation, he can withdraw and worry a lot about later life. Therefore, he does not need to know about financial problems in the family. You can say, “We’ll buy those candies next time, but today it’s better to buy these cookies.”
