We are parents for sure but still are humans after all who are habitual to doing certain things. We might avoid doing these things in front of our children otherwise but while under stress we tend to unintentionally do these things. While certain acts are perfectly normal there are few that must be avoided at all costs. Here we are going to mention some of such acts that you must not do in front of kids.
Most of us tend to speak a lot and quickly when we are in stress. Though perfectly normal but in front of kids it can be a sign of negative parenting. Talking endlessly gives them an idea about you being under stress at the first place and secondly they tend to tune you out after listening to you for some time. Also, you tend to sound anxious which puts children in stress.
Under stress most of us parents tend to get annoyed even at little mistakes that our kids make. This result in us getting irritated and scolding them time and again. Continuous nagging on our kids tend to have a negative impact on them and is obviously a sign of negative parenting. Never ever should you try to control the situation by nagging your children.
Another thing that we as parents opt for while in stress is issuing warning to our kids even for little things. This is not at all a sign of good parenting. Firstly, it creates unrest among the children and secondly they get to know that you are under stress which disturbs them mentally even more.
To wrap up, it is completely normal to be stressed but you need to check your acts under stress especially when you are in front of your kids. It is not at all a good idea to drop hints in front of your kids about you being stressed.
