Share Children's indiscretion


A pool day with my son was a bald man taking a dip, my son to see him approached the edge of the pool and asked in front of all pointing at the bathers head in question: "Mom because you do not have hair?". .. some celebrated the question with laughter, but I died of shame and I opened my eyes greatly in disapproval.

And is that children are sincere, which often translates into indiscretion and impertinence. This behavior so natural in them is because at the age of four years (is the stage where it usually appears) has no awareness between the public and private, between being nice or rude.

It is important as parents to set the example and be discreet in personal matters. You have to teach them that certain matters that are spoken at home should not be said outside, although there is a risk that they will tell everything and add "my parents say that I should not tell you this, but


", Due to its degree of immaturity. To eradicate this behavior, it is necessary to establish limits in family education in terms of the topics that are treated at home and the way of expressing emotions and ideas. It is important not to discuss delicate matters of the family, friends or neighbors in your presence.

Respect privacy at home, knock on the door before entering your room, even if you do not have it closed. Nor should children be given toys that visit without their consent and never reveal a secret that tells you.

It is also convenient to set limits to privacy. There are situations and circumstances (intimate hygiene, sexual relationships ...) that the child should not witness.

At the same time you have to teach them to be diplomatic, so when you commit an indiscretion you should not scold them in front of people; It is better to make a gesture of disapproval and change the subject. Only by telling him that what he has done is not right.

Children commit many indiscretions related to anatomical differences (allusions to fat, bald


), fortunately these negative allusions constitute a lesson for them. Children learn to shut up what hurts others when they observe the reactions of parents and other adults when they have said something out of place.
