Is this the norm? Do parents find that it is okay to do this? I am asking because I see post referring to kids as brats, little snots and such and I am just amazed. I grew up in an abusive household where I was often called names and in our house no one is allowed to call anyone names at all- I never refer to my kids as anything like this because I know that it can damage their self-esteem big time. What is your view.
I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT WHEN A PARENT JOKES WITH A CHILD.
