There are lots of parents who make a big deal out of their children’s interests.
But a new survey by Redditors is asking how they’re feeling about the content of their kids’ posts, and the results could have a big impact on the way parents and other adults are communicating with them.
“Redditors are often asked how they feel about their childrens content,” said co-author Lisa Schulz, a doctoral candidate in psychology at the University of Waterloo.
“But what we find is that a lot of parents are really unhappy about the level of information that they’re seeing in their children ‘s comments and posts.”‘
You’re not alone’The survey was conducted in October, and asked Redditors to rank their top three or four parenting tips.
Parents rated their childs posts in three categories: “helpful,” “important” and “truly helpful.”
Schulz and her colleagues then compared their top-three parenting tips with the number of comments posted by their children on those posts.
“What we found is that parents are not only unhappy with how their children are receiving information in their comments, but they are also actually unhappy about how they are communicating their concerns to their child,” Schulz said.
“So, parents are actually communicating to their children more effectively, and they’re not just giving away information.
It’s really important that parents understand how their child is being taught, because it will really impact how they communicate with their children.”
For instance, parents with young children may want to be more specific about what their child should learn from their parents, or they may want their child to know that they should respect their parents’ boundaries.
The results showed that Redditors were also less happy with how they were addressing their children than they are with their own kids’ online behavior.
“There’s a lot more anxiety about it than there is with other kids,” said Schulz.
“We’re seeing more and more parents say that their kids are being very sensitive, and that they are not being very good at controlling their children,” she added.
Parents can make sure that their children aren’t learning too much from other parents or their own children.
But it’s not all negative.
Redditors also say that they enjoy sharing their child’s content, and have found that they have an opportunity to share their own thoughts on how to deal with their child.
“Parenting is hard work.
It is not a silver bullet.
It takes a lot to teach a child what they should be doing in order to succeed, and it takes a good deal of time to teach them to be a good parent,” said Jessica Kuepper, a PhD candidate in communication studies at the College of William and Mary.
“We can do better than we have so far in terms of teaching our children to respect their peers and to respect other parents.”
