Dont you feel it is the same as saying "You raised a self centered brat and you already screwed it all up"??

I hate when people give the advice "dont tell your teen NOT to do that because then they will just want to do it more."

Basically what you are saying is that the person has already screwed up and raised a selfish, self centered brat .... that no matter what the parents opinion is the child wont listen to it... in fact it will make the child want to do exactly the opposite.

IF there is something/someone you dont like you SHOULD talk to your child about it. You SHOULD tell them that you dont like it, dont want them doing it, ect. Silence will not help the situation.

  • Not really sure where this came from, but I think that communicating with kids is the best way to keep them from doing dangerous things. Being honest and open is important.

  • Ummm...I pretty much believe that how my child is raised is none of anyone else's business so even if I do agree with their suggestions, I am still going to raise them how I darn well please.

  • Um, wow. But I do feel that if you keep telling someone NOT to do something, esp at the age, that makes them want to do that more. Maybe I am not understanding where you are coming from.
