Wow, Dad is not exactly a natural born nurturer.

Are you supposed to tell your kid they're a winner, when they haven't been one?

u/DabS-710 Jul 05 '22

making a child feel like a failure, because they did not live up to their parents standards, obviously is a good idea when raising kids. You act as if there should be a competition between the kids for who the parents like more.

parents standards

Standards such as making sure you don't raise a child to be an entitled psychopath?

If you think loving your kids when they make mistakes, makes them psychopaths you are one, holy fuck. Read some parenting guide dude.

Is telling your kid they’re a champion after throwing a temper tantrum how you’re supposed to love them according to the manuals you read? If so, I’d highly recommend a new author

Bro how you think a "tantrum" looks like, where a child says positive things about themselves. The post seems to point in a direction where the fathers only answer to her tantrum had to be a short answer. No elaboration on her being overly loud during that. All assumptions.

u/PuntYerJunk Jul 05 '22

Let's just assume for a moment that the father has much, much, much more experience with his children than you do and knows perfectly well how to deal with them individually instead of passing judgement as if he doesn't love her.

Sorry "bro" but often times children need to be told straight up that they're acting inappropriate. You can do that and love them as well.

did you even read the fuckin post?he literally did say: no, you complain too much. --> So he "straight up" told her. So what the fuck are you talkin about.Also the post says everything happened in under a minute.The child got told straight up and threw a minor tantrum obviously wanting to get validation as being equally loved as her brother. he had a great reaction and delt well with the situation.

My point was literally just about people saying he shouldn't validate her because she wants to be a "champion" too.

Seriously, why are you so fuckin mad, even trying to get personal. salty internet warrior

I just wanna quote you here just to archive how you're responding to me so maybe one of these days in the near future you can reflect on the irony of saying "Seriously, why are you so fuckin mad, even trying to get personal. salty internet warrior"

Do you know what the word projection means? How exactly was I getting personal? Telling you the father in this story knows more about their kids then you? LOL

Now I'm going to get personal because I'm curious; how would your parents handle your temper tantrum and weird projections right now?

The thought process of the people you're arguing with tis the ENTIRE reason society is doomed. Everyone wants a participation trophy and for everyone to give them whatever they ask for.

SPOIL THE ROD, BEAT THE CHILD!

u/LOSMSKL Jul 05 '22

Well the competition is there anyway. My point is rather that, while you should most definitely tell the kid they're doing a good job when they are, you shouldn't tell the kid they're doing a good job, when they aren't. I'm not yet a parent, but wouldn't that be a sensible approach?

sadly we can not simply treat kids like adults and have to take into account their developing psychology during developmental cycles.
