Parenting Strategies for Impactful Parents: Parenting Tips for Moms and Dads of School-aged Children and Teenagers

The Impactful Parenting Podcast gives helpful parenting tips, advice for making family life easier, and resources to parents of school-aged children. Why? Because parenting is difficult, you don’t need to do it alone. School-aged children bring different challenges to parenting that younger kids don’t. The Impactful Parenting Podcast provides help for raising your adolescent child. So if you’re asking yourself questions like: • ”How do I get my child to stop procrastinating?” • ”How can I discipline more effectively?” • ”When do I have the sex talk?” • ”Help! I think my child is addicted to video games.” • ”When should I allow my child to use social media?” • ”What is the best first phone for my child?” • ”What do I do if my child is cutting?” Then YOU HAVE FOUND THE RIGHT PLACE! These types of topics are just the tip of the iceberg! Hi! My name is Kristina. I am a parenting coach, a teacher who has taught every grade level from Pre-K through high school, and most importantly, I am a mom of 4 kids! (Yep, those are my kiddos in the podcast photo). My passion is creating better relationships between parents and their children. The more support you have and the more help you can get, will make your parenting journey more manageable. Teen years don’t need to be difficult. Teenagers CAN have a special bond with their parents! Listen and learn how the Impactful Parenting Podcast can help YOU too! Let’s do this! -Kristina Campos Founder of The Impactful Parent

How Parents Unintentionally Hurt Their Child's Self-Esteem   This is a MUST-SEE Impactful Parent Episode for anyone who is worried about their child's mental health, self-esteem, and well-being! Parents unintentionally hurt their child's self-esteem all the time! You do too, and you probably don't know it! Discover 12 COMMON ways parents unintentionally hurt their child's self-esteem so that you can be a more conscious and impactful parent!   LINKS MENTIONED IN THE RECORDING https://theimpactfulparent.com/app Download the FREE Impactful Parent App! Available on Apple and Android App Stores. FREEBIES from episodes included! Apple Store: https://theimpactfulparent.com/ios Android Play Store: https://theimpactfulparent.com/android https://theimpactfulparent.com for more FREE Resources and paid programs.   Transcript or Impactful Points of this Blog Parent can kill a child’s self-esteem and not even know they are doing it! Did you have a parent like that? Many parents reflect the blame. They think, “I compliment my child all the time! How could I be hurting my child’s self-esteem? Well, parents do unintentionally destroy their child’s self-esteem, but I do not want YOU to do that! Today we are going to talk about 12 ways that parents unintentionally destroy their child's self-esteem. Hello. My name is Kristina Campos, founder of The Impactful Parent. I help parents of school aged children turn their chaos into connection with their adolescence. I am a mom of four kids, a teacher that has taught every grade from pre-school to high school, and today I help moms and dads, like yourself, to navigate the exhausting, confusing, frustrating, and rewarding world of parenting. WELCOME TO THE IMPACTFUL PARENT! Let’s get started. How parents unintentionally hurt their child’s self-esteem #1: Overprotection. When parents do everything for their child, they may unknowingly send the message that the child is not capable of tackling tasks independently. How parents unintentionally hurt their child’s self-esteem #2: Not allowing kids to make decisions. Making all the decisions for the child can undermine their sense of autonomy and make them feel like their opinions and choices do not matter. How parents unintentionally hurt their child’s self-esteem #3: Neglect When parents fail to provide emotional support, validation, and attention, children may internalize the belief that they are not important or worthy of love. This lack of emotional connection can significantly impact their self-esteem and overall well-being. Also, don’t forget about micro-neglect. This is a term I use to describe when a parent pays “half-ass” attention to their child. For example, the parent shows with their body language or words that they are not interested in what the child is saying. Or the parent intentionally withholds affection from their child because they were “bad.” Sometimes micro-neglect comes out when a parent ignores a child because they are too busy with work or other adult obligations. How parents unintentionally hurt their child’s self-esteem #4: Trying to Make Them Happy All the Time I call this the “everyone gets a ribbon” problem. Many children do not know how to take loss anymore due to society giving everyone a prize and not allowing the child to experience defeat. How parents unintentionally hurt their child’s self-esteem #5: Never apologizing. This makes the child feel less and unimportant. Over time, a child can feel unworthy of an apology. How parents unintentionally hurt their child’s self-esteem #6: Rushing to help too soon. This sends the message to the child that they are not capable of doing the activity without help. It inadvertently tells kids that “I don’t believe you can accomplish this task.” How parents unintentionally hurt their child’s self-esteem #7: Comparison. Comparing a child to their siblings, peers, or other children can be damaging to their self-esteem. When parents constantly compare their child to others, they send the message that the child is not good enough as they are. This can lead to feelings of inadequacy and low self-worth. How parents unintentionally hurt their child’s self-esteem #8: Being too critical and name calling. Parents who regularly insult or belittle their child may cause them to feel worthless and inadequate. (“You are so lazy,” “that was stupid of you.”) Critical comments from parents like, “You could have tried harder,” or “You should have done this instead,” can also erode a child’s self-esteem. How parents unintentionally hurt their child’s self-esteem #9: Expectations and Pressure Expectations will cause children to feel constant stress to perform perfectly. This can lead to feelings of failure and a diminished sense of self-worth. This is true of most expectations ranging from expecting your child to be heterosexual to viewing your child as an extension of yourself. Even hoping for your child to succeed in ways that you did not could be a slippery slope. How parents unintentionally hurt their child’s self-esteem #10: Breaking your promises. This makes kids feel unimportant to you. They feel unprioritized and not worthy. How parents unintentionally hurt their child’s self-esteem #11: Shutting down their feelings. Parents can invalidate their feelings with comments like, “Don’t worry about it,” or “There is no reason to be upset here,” but shutting down your child’s feelings comes in many forms. Even invading your child’s privacy can be considered a form of dismissing their feelings. In fact, the most common form of parents shutting down their child’s feelings (in my opinion) is making the child do things their way all the time.  How parents unintentionally hurt their child’s self-esteem #12: Dismiss their efforts When a parent dismisses a child’s efforts, even unintentionally, it tells the child that their efforts do not count and were not noticed.
