More memos from your child (unknown source)

untitled (47)

  1. Don’t make me feel my mistakes are sins. It upsets my sense of value.
  2. Don’t protect me from consequences. I need to learn the painful way sometimes.
  3. Don’t be too upset when I say “I hate you.” It isn’t you that I hate, but your power to thwart me.
  4. Don’t take too much notice of my small ailments. Sometimes they get me the attention I need.
  5. Don’t nag. If you do, I shall have to protect myself by appearing deaf.
