Does it seem like nothing you do is ever good enough for your parents?Do you feel like your every move is being examined under a microscope-that you are always being watched and constantly critiqued but you never pass inspection?
Which of the following do you hear most often
*Your room is always a mess
*You stay up too late
*You never get up on time
*You watch too much TV
True commands and criticism may get on your nerves.But consider the alternative:if you never receive counsel or discipline wouldn't you wonder if your parents cared about you?
Discipline is evidence of your parents love.You can be grateful then that your parents care a lot about you to set you straight,after all you are young and relatively inexperienced.Sooner or later, correction will be in order.Without guardiance you could easily be overpowered by the desire incidental to youth.
Of course,no discipline seems for the present to be joyous but grievous.This is particularly so when you are young.And no wonder your personality is in it's developing stages.You are still growing up and discovering who you are.So criticism even when carefully thought out and delivered in a kind way may trigger resentment.
This reaction is understandable, because the value you place on yourself can easily be influenced by what others say about you.And your parents opinion in particular greatly affects your sense of self worth.So when a parent corrects you or complains about the way you do something,it can be devastating😞😞😞😞😞😞😞.
Should you conclude that nothing you do is ever good enough for your parents or that you are a complete failure simply because your parents have pointed out a few of your flaws?
No.All humans fall woefully short of perfection.And making mistakes is part of the learning process.What,though,if your parents seem to have a lot to say when you do something wrong but little to say when you do something right?That can hurt.Still,it hardly means you're a total failure.
