Demonstrating Respect for Children's Feelings: We all have bad days. For children it can be especially upsetting because they can’t reason a resolution to their conflict. They can only vent with emotions that may include showing anger, anxiety or frustration. Help them understand that we all have bad days, allow them to share their feelings, and then give them some extra love and understanding. #quotes #parenting #behaviour
If yelling at children is not a good thing, yelling that comes with verbal putdowns and insults can be qualified as emotional abuse. It’s been shown to have long-term effects, like anxiety, low self-esteem, and increased aggression. It also makes children more susceptible to bullying since their understanding of healthy boundaries and self-respect are skewed.
