In last week’s podcast, we were reminded of the wonderful things we can say to our children to build them up, make them feel amazing, grow their resilience, and improve family life.
This week, we’re turning the tables and looking at some of those things we say to our kids in the heat of the moment – or because we don’t know any better – that can really hurt them.
In this podcast, I’ll share 5 things our children need to hear from us as little as possible – or maybe even NEVER.
What are the five things our children should never hear from us?
- You’re useless
- You’re so clever
- Why can’t you be more like…
- I wish I’d never had you
- Because I said so
For more information about each of these, take a listen to the podcast.
