Put Sarcasm Aside

Most parents wouldn’t put up with sarcasm from their kids. But do we hold ourselves to the same standard? A sarcastic sense of humour may seem funny to many adults, but kids aren’t always able to distinguish a joke from an insult. Parents who tease their kids could be doing irreparable harm—often without realizing it.  Imagine a boy coming home with a report card full of “A’s” One father may say, “Great job, Johnny. You’re a bright boy.” And the words would make a lasting impact on his son.  But another father may try to be funny, and say something like, “Wow, Johnny, you’re not as dumb as I thought.” He knows it’s a joke, and so does his boy, but does he really see it as a compliment?  Sarcasm may have its place, but not in the home. The world is tough enough. What kids need is a place where they’re praised and accepted—all joking aside.
