Don’t let your kid do anything that will cause you to dislike them.
I have only ever heard this from one person: Dr. Jordan B. Peterson. I had to hear it a few times, in different lectures, for it to resonate with me. My first reaction was that it’s impossible to control a child’s behaviour, but the more I listened the more it made sense.
What Does This Mean?
Preventing kids from doing annoying things helps them be likeable by both adults and peers. This kind of thing follows them through life.
