Children are young adults in making. Whatever we say to them during their childhood, sometimes knowingly or unknowingly haunts them. Children are encouraged by adults, but sometimes, we treat them as punching bags to deal with our own frustrations. Hereunder are a few things,  that you should never tell your child, irrespective of any situation:

  1. I wish I never gave birth to you;
  2. I wish you were a boy (Quiet common in Indian families);
  3. Why are you not intelligent like your uncle/aunt/neighbour/ collegue/ friend/ every other person existing on this earth’s son;
  4. Why are you bad in studies ?
  5. Your passion and hobby is wrong
  6. There is nothing like dreams come true, it is a lie.
