2. Making excuses (“That´s how children are”)
One of the 5 errors is this one. If you justify their misbehavior and outbursts in public by using this phrase, you’re motivating your children to continue misbehaving and be irresponsible.
Children are actually capable of doing much more than their parents can expect. This goes for respect, manners, everyday domestic work, generosity and self-control.
Emma claims that you should raise the expectations you have for your children, that way you’ll teach them how to behave properly.
3. You don’ let others scold them
Back in the day, teachers and professors could scold our children when they behaved improperly.
They were our eyes and ears when the children were out of our sight. Nowadays this is almost impossible, because if a teacher or an employee gives a piece of their mind to a child, parents tend to get mad. They don´t even try to find out what happened to cause this kind of a reaction from a superior. If you act like this, you’re basically telling your children to misbehave and that neither you, nor the teacher, or the employee would do anything to stop them.
