The following parenting tip is geared toward toddlers. Toddlers commonly go through a selfish stage where they demand immediate gratification of their wants. You should use this behavior as an opportunity to teach the value of sharing and being considerate.

“Talk with girls about relational violence (such as gossip, rumor-spreading and exclusion) as well as physical violence (hitting or fighting).

Parents of teens do not want their teen cussing them out and yelling at them. When a teen is behaving this way, a parent should ask themselves why their teen is doing that. Maybe, the parent realizes that they talk that way and that’s where their teen learned it. Or, maybe the rule of “no cussing and yelling at each other” isn’t backed by any value. It’s just a rule that you have to follow “because I said so”. Why doesn’t your family cuss and yell at each other? Some values behind that rule is that it makes you feel degraded and low. It ruins self-confidence in a person to be yelled and cussed at. Yelling and cussing at each other also builds aggression and anger. We don’t like being angry or aggressive at each other. Those are some great values to live in.

Or because you didn’t want to disappoint your parents?
