Confessions of a Modern Parent
DO WE LABEL OUR KIDS TOO MUCH & IS LABELLING THEM A BAD THING?
Friday, 12 February
Were YOU the “smart” one - the “creative” one - the “slow” one ... the “lazy” one? We all do it in some way - but are we (as parents) labeling our kids too early in their lives - at a point when they are still finding out who they are or what they want to be or do? For what reasons do we label our kids or even each other as parents? Is it a way of coping - making sense of the world - or is it an indirect way of actually killing the full potential of our kids and ourselves as parents. In what ways can negative labels continue to reach into grown up life - we hear from our two Young Adults about the pros and cons of labels. NOT fashion labels!!
