Seven Parenting Mistakes

Seven common parenting mistakes by Vincent Iannelli, M.D.

  1. Not Trying To Fix Problems
  2. Overestimating or Underestimating Problems
  3. Having Unrealistic Expectations
  4. Being Inconsistent
  5. Not Having Rules or Setting Limits
  6. Fighting Back
  7. Not Changing What Doesn't Work
Are you guilty in any of the above mistakes? I believe I am consistent with my house rules, I have limits, I have realistic expectations and I do try to change things that doesn't work. The problem is hubby [and the grandparents] often times contradict my rules and limits which makes it harder for me to implement my rules if they are around.

Looks like a universal problem parents and grandparents contradicting each other. My younger sis has the same problem. :(

Hi Tintin,
I'm sure you will do just fine.

Hi Bugsy,
Oh yes, and I guess I will do that same to my own grandkids. hehehe...
