10 Reasons Why Parents Should Stop Labeling Children

By Peter Julian

It is very important for parents to stop labeling their children, as it could cause them to have issues in their life. First, children are way too young to be labeled. People change and mature as they grow older, so labeling them when they are young is pointless. If you continually are labeling your child as something, they may start to believe it too. Labeling your children can cause them to become more sensitive and prevents them from having empathy. It can also hurt their self esteem and limit them as a person. Let your children figure out who and what they are as they grow older.

Key Takeaways:

  • Children are very simply way too young to be labeled, as people change as they grow older. Let them figure out who they are as people through their life experiences.
  • When you label a child you prevent empathy and other emotions for the child to experience. It can also cause them to become very sensitive.
  • Finally, labeling a child can hurt their self esteem and make them believe their labels are true.

“When you label a child, even casually, as a joke, or for fun, they don’t understand that you’re just fooling around. If they’re called that label, again and again, they may begin to think that’s just what they are.”
