What makes some parents always remind their children of their past mistakes and failings?
Every child makes mistakes and do crazy things. That is a part of growing up and finding themselves. While some parents know this, others rehash those mistakes to their children constantly. What makes these parents not want to be more relaxed and forgiving regarding their children's mistakes and failings?
I've worked with kids in alternative schools who have been suspended from regular school for doing something hideous. some of them are repeat offenders. Any parent would want their child to stop that kind of vicious cycle and follow a good path, so they tend to rehash their kids mistakes to them in hope that the kids would stop and do the right thing.
The truth is, kids are all different. Some learn from their mistakes and move on, never repeating the same mistakes again or as often. While some kids just never learn. They tend to get some satisfaction from doing the wrong over and over again.
What parents should learn to do is study the child to see the pattern and lovingly address the pattern, not so much the mistake.
I guess parents always want what is best for their children. Maybe they remind them of their mistakes so they won't do them again. It all depends on what the mistake was. If the child constantly gets into trouble, shouldn't their parent remind them? However, if the child made just one mistake, the parent should let it go. Parenting is hard. Parents make mistakes too!
