Tip on Changing Critical Communication into Non-critical Comments

Critical statements often dishearten the child and hinders healthy communication between child and parent, we recommend parents rather use non-critical statements, below are a few examples:

Critical statement: “Pay attention! No wonder you don’t know anything – you never listen.”

Non-critical statement: “It’s hard for you to pay attention right now. Let’s say we take a break and try again.”

Critical statement: “Shut up! You’re not making any sense – as usual.”

Non-critical statement: “Can we go over this again? I don’t think I follow what you’re saying.”

Critical statement: “I don’t know why you’re so lazy. You’re just not putting forth any effort. How do you expect to make anything of yourself if you don’t try?”

Non-critical statement: “Based on my conversation with you and your teacher, motivation seems to be a big problem for you. What do you think?”
