Family Life Coach And Mom, Kemi Oyedepo Sends Words Of Caution To Parents Who Are In The Habit Of Doing This: If that’s how you were raised, change it’

Children will often get on their parents or caregivers nerves, that’s what they do. They will defy you, make silly decisions that will infuriate you, but you must hold back your tongue. It is important to separate that silly act from the child. Do not define your child by their actions and end up labelling them.

In other words, we are to say: “Debra, what you did was bad” and not “Debra, you are a bad child”. You did something stupid, does not make you stupid.

Using such words on your children can harm them, resulting in increased behavior problems, academic issues, imprisonment rates, and even likelihood of violent death. Therefore, it’s vitally important to be mindful of the phrases we throw around them.

Kemi Oyedepo, the devoted wife of David Oyedepo Jnr, first son of the founder and General Overseer of Winners Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo, has cautioned parents to stop uttering destructive words over their children.
