Apparently children with this trait will be more successful
I know having a little one who talks back to you can be frustrating at times, but try not to get too stressed because new research suggests that children who talk back could actually be more successful.
It may be easy for us to lose our patience, and the issue of talking back may get worse when children start school, however, it is completely healthy according to clinical psychologists.
Children who don’t have the ability to say no are more likely to suffer when they grow up with no confidence or conviction in their opinions or choices. So when It’s put like that, maybe we should welcome that little bit of attitude. It turns out, children are just trying to set their own personal boundaries and become their own person. So who are we to stand in their way?
Not only that, but the study also found that children who talk back show signs of healthy mental and emotional development.
So this means that we shouldn’t feel so disrespected when our children give us attitude, because it doesn’t necessarily mean that they aren’t aware of who’s in charge.
Allowing them to talk back and listening to them will no doubt make them feel important and that their opinions matter.
So what do you think? Will this research make you think twice before disciplining your kids for talking back to you?
