Things We Do In front Of Kids That Affect Them While Growing up.

DTBoi1 2d

There are certain things you should avoid doing in front of your baby and toddler.


Babies recognise language from the womb. They easily pick up words and store it safely away in their memory files, and swearing is not the first language you want your child to speak.

Scream and yell

It’s easy to get frustrated. Particularly when you are suffering from a lack of sleep, and are ratty and irritated. Try not to fight or scream in front of your baby. You may think they are too small to understand the actual words, but they do pick up on tone and your anxiety. Children tend to think that it’s about them, and assume that you are upset because of something they have done. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.

While parents are amidst their tons of responsibilities, work stress and an extremely packed schedule, they forget that they are depriving their children of some of the most basic needs. They often forget that every action or reaction that they do in front of their child will have some kind of effect on the child. And this can be both positive and negative. However, in all circumstances, there are a few things which are a big no-no in front of the child.

Read below to know what they are:


Parents can have multiple excuses for not being able to make up to their children for any random reason. It all comes down to having too much to do and not being able to focus on anything properly. But lying to your children is not justified, irrespective of the reason. Children being young, inexperienced and innocent will not be able to grasp the grey line we tread when we lie. It will only seem nightmarish to your when you see your child doing the same to you.

Fight with your partner

Showing signs of aggression, being loud or violent in front of your child can make your child feel extremely insecure and scared, and might also lead to him/her developing the same habits on growing up. According to a UNICEF report, showing signs of aggression or getting into shrewd arguments or domestic violence in front of the child will lead to the child growing up with similar problems in the future.

Mocking your child in front of others

Playfully teasing your child or making fun of his innocent reactions might seem funny and nothing serious right now, but it can have some serious negative impact on the child during his formative years. Not only does it end up making a traumatising memory for the child, it also lowers his/her self-esteem and self-confidence to a great extent.

Getting violent and aggressive on your child

Your child needs your love and care, not your anger. He/she might infuriate you, but it is your responsibility to not lose your temper and raise a hand at them or shout at them. Each time you flare up and rage, they will become increasing timid around you and will be afraid to even talk to you, leave alone sharing with you.

Eat junk food

Regret feeding your child with the first packet of 2-minute noodles? Junk or fast food might seem convenient options for your children, but we all know that it lacks in the basic nutritional value which is essential for your child. Moreover, they are addictive and will make your children develop cravings for them. So avoid eating junk food in front of your children. It makes them believe that it is alright to have them.
