Do you have a toddler at home who seems to be growing up so fast that you are finding it hard to keep up?

Well, parenting is never an easy thing, and it can get especially challenging as your child is growing up.

When your kid turns about the age of 10, he/she tends to get more sensitive and aware of the things happening around him/her.

The ages between 7 and 18 years is the molding period for a child; and as a parent you should be very careful not to hurt the child's feelings deeply, as it may leave a negative impact on them forever!

Parenting is a huge responsibility because, as parents, even a small mistake that you may unknowingly make, when it comes to the child's emotions, can go wrong and may lead to your child developing psychological disorders!

So, there are a whole lot of dos and don'ts when it comes to parenting, and we must make an attempt to make sure we do everything right, in order for our kids to have quality lives!

So, here are a few negative things that you should never say to a growing child, have a look.

1. “Leave Me Alone”

2. “You Are Hopeless”

Ridiculing your kids, when they are upset or when they cry, can do serious harm to their emotional state. You can instead be there for them and make them cope with their problems.

3. “Such A Cry-Baby”

Ridiculing your kids, when they are upset or when they cry, can do serious harm to their emotional state. You can instead be there for them and make them cope with their problems.

4. “Be More Like Your Friend”

Comparing your kid with his/her friends or siblings, constantly, can only lower his/her self-esteem, confidence and make him/her develop a sense of resentment towards you.

5. “Stop, Or I Will Hit You”

Psychical threats to your children, whether you actually mean it or not, can make them afraid of you and also lead to the development of a rebellious attitude in them.

6. “Girls/Boys Don't Do That”

Gender stereotyping your kids is never a good idea, especially in this advanced time that we live in. You can instead teach them the importance of independence and equality!

7. “You Are So Fat”
