“I don’t like you, Mommy”
|9 Comments |||
Kudos for this boy’s parents, who let him say what he feels. Many parents would get angry or have their feelings hurt if their kids said, “I don’t like you, Mommy!” But usually, they are either simply expressing anger, or as in this case, qualifying what deserves loving. It’s important to teach your kids about unconditional love—you love them all the time, no matter what! And, when you’re angry and it feels as though you don’t love them, they need to know you’re not liking their behavior, but you still love them.
Enjoy your kids!
So how do you feel about your children truthfully expressing themselves? How would you have responded to this little boy? Please feel free to leave a comment below.
