Treating Our Children As Friends Can Be Detrimental

The Head of the Girls’ School Association, Alice Phillips warns that many parents are having negative influence on their children by attempting to treat them as friends.

Some mistakes that parents make include:

Attempting to involve their children in adult conversations and take their sides in arguments. This causes children to grow up earlier than is necessary for them.

Discussing certain school matters and reacting in front of their children can turn small issues to bigger issues.

Well-meaning and misguided attempts to support our children often backfire and severely restrict the paths our children take in life.

We will add to these points that sometimes when we share our own school miseries, it can have adverse consequences on our children especially when they are not matured enough to differentiate our experiences with theirs.
