Negative Effects of Critical Parenting:- Having a critical parent is profoundly traumatizing, these types of kids will develop very low self-confidence. Critical parenting will also take away the emotions and sense of self-worth. This childhood trauma caused by typical parenting will persist in adulthood and increase self-doubt, anxiety and perpetual fear of everything.
Problems that need to be addressed: We should often think that we might have done better and understand that we are good enough. Such people will never seek help even when they are suffering and see independence as pride.
Parents should not try fixing every fault of their child, this will make the child believe that they are wrong and flawed in every way.
These kids from critical parents never want to disappoint anyone and never rest. Even if their bodies are tired as they are in the process of impressing others.
Criticising our partners also leads to a toxic relationship pattern.
Tips to control your critical parenting:
Stop pointing at your children’s mistakes constantly. This often makes them never satisfied with their achievements.
Stop passing blaming statements to your child.
Often critical parents do not respond to their children’s needs rather than providing what they want.
Provide yourself feedback, whether it's negative or positive. This might help you to know whether you are a critical parent or not.
