Parenting is not an easy thing and every parent tries their best to take care of their kids. But there are some parents who have toxic parenting habits which irk so many people. Barbara Greenberg, PhD, a clinical psychologist told: “Toxic parents are known for not listening to their kids, but instead, talking over them or at them, make a concerted effort to remain silent and listen, listen, and listen some more.
If kids feel listened to they will talk more and confide more.”
“Try to stay positive! Negative thoughts can be more powerful than you think and affect your interactions with your kids. Internationally recognized child psychology expert, Jeffrey Bernstein, PhD, explained to RD: “No kid is perfect, but parents often don’t realize just how much their own thoughts, rather than their children’s behavior, contribute to their own emotions.”
Here is the list of 12 parents whose parenting skills are what you should not learn from.
