Ten Psychological problems caused by parenting behavior.
With most psychological issues the explanations are quite trivial: childhood emotional impressions.
You should know that your low self-esteem and anxiety could be caused by certain parenting mistakes.
Here are typical character trait of individuals whose lives were directed by the incorrect behavior of their moms and dads.
10 – Lack of independence.
Helicopter parents, also called cosseting parents, are always watching and scrutinizing their child’s life.
They mean tolerably , but such overprotection results in psychological issues.
If you can’t make a major decision without a call to your parents, you’re probably such a child.
When we keep saying, ‘watch out! you’ll fall down!’
or ‘don’t touch the dog, it’ll bite you,’ a child only hears,
the world is dangerous.
It’s better not to do anything.
Instead, parents can say it differently: ‘be careful,’
or ‘look after yourself.’
We should allow our youngsters make mistakes [sic] and draw their own conclusions. Let’s give them more freedom, and they’ll grow independent.
9 – Depression, feeling of guilt.
If parents say, ‘we refused ourselves everything for you to possess a better education!’
the feeling of undeserved guilt will overwhelm a child. The same goes for threats concerning bad grades — the child is under constant stress.
If you say, ‘how many times do I have to tell you?’
or ‘can’t you study better?’
your children will think you mean that they are fools and failures. To motivate your kid, simply say, ‘you can do it, try again!’
‘think again – you’ll find the answer!’
or ‘let’s do it together.’
8 – The inability to rest and relax completely.
‘Be serious!’, ‘Stop goofing around!’
‘Don’t be such a baby!’
Such phrases will create an overly earnest adult who’s never fully relaxed, doesn’t understand children, and hates immature people.
Let your child has [sic] the best time of their lives – childhood.
7 – Harmful addictions and extreme sports.
If parents always tell their child how many problems he or she causes, the child will conclude that everyone would be better off without him.
As a result, the kid grows into an adult who subconsciously finds ways to destroy himself:
alcohol, smoking, drugs, or extreme sports.
You know what’s better for your kid? The simple phrase ‘I love you just the way you are.’
6 – Personal life issues.
Directives to not trust anyone will cause that:
perceiving the world as hostile with traps everywhere. The essence of this that you think your child is too young to understand
what’s good for them, so you decide every little thing yourself.
You may be right, of course, but if your child lives with constant limitations, they’re going to eventually rebel against them.
Also, such grown-ups may have serious trust issues.
5 – Search for a parent-partner.
Saying ‘you’re too young for that!’ is the perfect way to raise a ‘kidult.’
This child will probably stay ‘too young’ forever, being dependent and needing a parenting partner.
4 – Suppression of own talents and lack of Initiative.
If parents frequently use such phrases as ‘don’t be smart with me!’ or ‘stop daydreaming!’
their child will have neither his own opinion, Initiative, or leadership qualities.
As an adult, they’re going to probably drown their ambitions and alcohol and ‘fun.’
3 – Closeness, suppression of emotions.
A lack of emotions and sensitivity in parents can’t be ignored by their child’s subconscious. When frequently told to stop crying or complaining,
the child closes in on himself.
These suppressed feelings can turn into psychosomatic issues.
2 – Extremely low self-esteem, desire to be like someone else.
Parents who compare their child with more “accomplished” kids will get a self-critical teenager, then an adult with an complex .
They always attempt to perform better while hating themselves for not being superior within the first place.
Never compare your child with others. And avoid such phrases as ‘look how much better
he does it than you.’ In this case, the kid only hears ‘you’re worse than everyone else.’
1 – Lack of independence, irresponsibility.
There is a specific sort of overprotective, paranoid parent who doesn’t let their child do anything.
‘Don’t touch the cat! It’ll scratch you!’, ‘don’t sit on the edge!’
These messages make the kid scared of making any decisions. Passiveness and irresponsibility also appear.
Parenting mistakes are quite common, but their price is just too high.
With our own unrestraint,
inconsistency, or over-busyness, we make our youngsters nervous and naughty.
You are capable of avoiding this.
You only have to cherish, understand, respect, and love your kids.
Do any of those situations sound familiar to you? Then show this Article to your parents. If you’re still a child,
they’ll probably change their behavior for the better.
