Such things can create negative impact on their development. Therefore, parents must stop doing such mistakes before it is too late.

Yelling at children is the biggest disciplining mistake that parents can do. Whatever is the state of the child, whether he or she is misbehaving, angry or frustrated, parents must learn to respond with love. Yelling can break them even more. Allthey need is a lot of love.

2. Hitting Them

One of the worst things that parents can do is hitting children. Hitting may not only hurt them but can leave scars on them for the lifetime. So, be very careful and do noteven think of hitting your children in your dreams.

3. Punishing Them Frequently

Punishing children is alright when they make mistakes but punishments should be constructive. Punishing them frequently for their little mistakes may discipline them but restrict them from living freely. It may instil a fear in them to even do the good things that are beneficial for their overall development.

4. Insulting Them in Front of Others

When children misbehave in public, parents should not insult them. Insulting them in public or in front of friends and relatives can lower their self-esteem and confidence. If your children are misbehaving in public you should take them away from the situation. You must make them understand calmly that their behaviour is not acceptable by anyone. 

5. Not Listening to Them

When you find that your child has done something wrong. Do not punish him or her without giving him or her chance to speak for himself of herself. Do not take any action without listening to your child. Find out what exactly happened and only then take a decision.

6. Over Pampering

There should be right balance between everything if you want to raise well-mannered children. Do not over pamper them in order to discipline them. Do not give-in to their demands every time. Always fulfil their needs and explain them calmly about things that you cannot afford or things that are not worth buying for them.

7. Not Talking to Them

You should never stop talking to your children if they are not listening to you. Keep the doors of communication open. Encourage your child to express. Talk to them continuously. Tell them stories, sing songs with them, play games with them, read to them. Never stop talking to them.

8. Threatening Them

Do not threaten them. Avoid giving them empty threats. Threating them unnecessarily can instil fear in them. Misunderstanding about certain things may develop in their mind.

9. Comparing Them

Telling them about the good qualities in other children is not bad but comparing is. Comparison can develop inferiority or superiority complex in them which is not good. Always talk to your children in such a way that the qualities like humbleness or kindness develop in them.

10. Ignoring Them

Just because they have done some mischief or something wrong, you should not ignore them. Try to correct their mistakes calmly. If they are upset cheer them-up and teach them to move-on immediately. Involve them in different activities that you are carrying out.
Avoid the above mentioned parenting mistakes at all costs. It will surely help you to raise a well-balanced, healthy and an intelligent child. Preventing these mistakes will definitely help you to avoid hampering your child’s development to a greater extent.
