Most parents, even unwittingly, repeat certain phrases to their children every day.
The pattern is the same for this and most of the time they don’t get the expected response.
As soon as the child wakes up, the … program begins:
Wash, eat, prepare
Three words, so familiar to every child that in turn they simply don’t care and follow their own rhythm.
Every time they see their child doing something other than…walking, the fear that something will happen to them, overwhelms them. This “be careful” does not stop even in the years of adulthood.
Don’t make a fuss
Children love noise and are not bothered by it, especially when provoked. Parents have a different opinion on this and several times during the day they will tell their child to be quiet.
Read, do your homework
This is the phrase that children hear many times during the school year and is the cause of constant fights.
Go to sleep
The next favorite phrase of parents is ” time to sleep” and usually follows the same response of the children: “I’m not sleepy”.
I’ll count to three
Classic and timeless saying that at the same time hides a form of threat. When a child does something bad, the parent will say they will count to three expecting compliance within the time frame (from one to three). After all, the counting is always done slowly and with an emphasis on 1,2,3 (end).
Stop right now
There are many reasons that will prompt a parent to say this phrase almost daily. Sometimes he is right and sometimes not. However, the child’s reaction is the same, with “why?” to often go unanswered.
