Did you know there are things you should not tell your grandchildren?
You should definitely strive to be someone that your grandkids come to talk to; however, there are certain things that you should not tell your grandchildren under any circumstances. This is not about topics that you should not bring up with them, as you probably know about them already. It is about certain sentences and explanations that you should never tell your grandkids, as they could end up understanding something other than what you mean, and it could cause more harm than good in the long run!
What’s more, certain things have changed, and while we may think that we have heard these things from people around us when we were their age, they may no longer be appropriate. Or even that there are other ways in which you can explain the same thing to them so that they do not internalize anything that could harm them later in life.
A good way to go about what you should tell your grandkids is to think about what you would have liked to hear when you were their age, likewise with what you heard that bothered you, and then act accordingly; that way, you will have fewer chances of saying something that will upset them even when you did not intend it!
Even so, there are a few things we say to them with good intentions that can end up being bad choices in the long run. To find out what you should not tell your grandchildren and what you could say instead, keep reading!
