3 Things You Should Stop Saying to Your Child

*Collaborative Post

As we all know, young children are impressionable. As they grow up, they’ll look to us as parents on how to act and view the world.

How we speak to our children also plays a big role in a child’s development and how they end up interacting with the world. Saying the wrong thing, even innocent phrases that seem harmless might have a negative effect.  

Studies done by child psychologists (like the professionals at New Vision Psychology) have discovered the phrases that are doing the most harm. Below, we’ve rounded up 3 common things we say to our kids that we should stop doing. Keep reading to find out what they are.

*AD

It’s come to that time in our lives where we need to start thinking about the possibility of childcare for William. He is almost 2 now and come next year we will be looking into pre-schools but just recently I have been wondering if he needs a nursery setting sooner? He is a very active little boy and with my workload increasing, I am constantly trying to juggle a lot and seem to be working every evening now due to my days being filled with activities with him. Finding childcare seems like a sensible option but I wasn’t too sure where to start… But then Childcare.co.uk got in touch to tell me about their website.

Kids Will Be Kids, Even On Holiday!

Unless you haven’t been following me for very long, you’ll know that we have just had the holiday of a lifetime in Florida (I may have mentioned it once or twice!) I’ve been on Instagram sharing my brilliant photos, I’ve popped some albums up on my personal Facebook page and I’ve even written a few blogs in the couple of weeks since coming home but there was something that wasn’t documented, there were things I didn’t want to take photos of and there were memories I am going to block out forever. Yes, my kids still acted like kids! Continue reading “Kids Will Be Kids, Even On Holiday!”
