5 Ways We Might Be Already Screwing Up Our Kids And Their Childhood

Let’s face it, we’re all guilty of at least one of these points.

It goes without saying that being a parent really truly is one of the hardest jobs in the world. It’s stressful, it’s around the clock, it pays very little (if at all), and you have miniature-sized bosses who sometimes make your life a living hell. You give them a chicken casserole, they want grilled cheese sandwiches. You buy them the pink Converse sneakers, they wanted the purple ones. You take them to McDonalds, they wanted Chick-Fil-A. It’s never ending!

And while we’ve all hard our moment in which we felt like exploding (don’t lie, because we all have our weaknesses, right), I’m sure we’ve said some regrettable things completely out of stress and frustration. That’s why some parents are worried they might be potentially harming or ruining their kids’ childhood by saying or does one of these things. And I’ll admit that I am guilty of at least one of these things!
