Parenting can be very tough and one of the most difficult things to learn as a parent is how to talk to children. Sometimes parents say things that can affect their children psychologically. Most often, they see their boys and girls in the evenings after getting home from work tired, and may address their kid with something not positive like: "You’re a bad kid!", "Go to your room!", "Don't bother me!," "Why can't you be more like your brother." These phrases are so painful!

When your kid was a baby, you probably said that you love them more often. With years, these words may have begun to seem to lose their meaning. However, it is vital for a child of any age. Express your love in words. Your kid needs to know that he or she is loved!
2. "I am so proud of you"
If you want your child to grow up a confident person, tell them that you are proud of them. It doesn’t matter what was the place they took in a competition. For their efforts, the child deserved a cake and, most of all, your praise.
3. "It’s OK, try again"
The child needs to understand that failure is an important part of any progress. Don’t scold them for bad marks, but tell them to go to the teacher and ask to retake the test. Sometimes, experiences can be painful, so encourage your kid. They have to know that next time they will manage it!
4. "I trust you"
You should say this phrase as soon as you are sure that your child can act independently. These words give your child confidence and teach responsibility. If the parents trust them, the kid won’t be able to fool them or let them down.
5. "Thank you"
