### [[Why Kids Stay Silent]] #Parenting #Mental_Wellbeing #Childhood #Advice Kids will RARELY tell their parents about something bad that happens to them - especially if those kids are worried that their parents will start by blaming THEM. Phrases like "why did you even go with those people" - "ู„ูŠุด ุฃุตู„ุง ุชุญูƒูŠ ู…ุน ู‡ูŠูƒ ุนุงู„ู…" or "I told you a million times not to do this" - "ู‚ู„ุชู„ูƒ ู…ู„ูŠูˆู† ู…ุฑุฉ ู…ุง ุชุฑูˆุญ ู„ู‡ูˆู†ูŠูƒ" or "it's you who got yourself into this trouble" - "ุงู†ุช ุฌุจุช ู‡ุงู„ู…ุตูŠุจุฉ ู„ุญุงู„ูƒ" or "let's deal with this and your punishment will come later" - "ุญุณุงุจูƒ ุจุนุฏูŠู†" If you ever use such statements with your kids, rest assured that they will NEVER tell you when something wrong happens to them. -- This was inspired by the recent discovery of a criminal ring in Lebanon that uses TikTok to lure and abuse children and teenagers. > [!seealso] Related Thoughts > >- [[Apologies in Parenting]] >- [[Raising Kids For An Unknown Future]] >- [[๐Ÿ‘ถRaising Children For A Different World]] >- [[Parenting Needs An Update]] Published: May 10, 2024
