Outspoken n rude is a fine thin line.
Many pple will say it is the parents' responsibility in child raising, I totally agree.
BUT some children r just
Soft, hard approaches falling on deaf ears.
If I had only one child, I might be questioned of my parenting style being unable to raise a well mannered child.
Mine also often get such comments from teachers. This year not yet and I hope won't. Also tried soft and hard approaches. Now am hoping he'll mature and learn to take cues from surrounding and learn to control his tongue.
Yes, like you said, 'if I only have one child, I might be questioned of my parenting style being unable to raise a well mannered child'. I use that to stop any self-blame but can't help thinking 'why like that?'
I told him to think back his behaviour for the past 2 weeks, what had happened for a teacher or teachers to say sth about "outspoken" and what he needs to do in future.
I find he is lacking in self-reflection skills. It's like he does not think he is wrong or has bn behaving inappropriately.
How I wish there is a miracle pill he can pop and all of a sudden, become a mature child.
