Parents say things like this to me:
“Do I need to discipline my 3-year-old for talking back, or will he grow out of it?”
“Did my 4-year-old just spill the soup on the floor because she’s clumsy, or because she’s mad at me?”
“Should I let my daughter leave the house in that outfit? I don’t like it, but I’m afraid if I tell her to change, she’ll stop talking to me.”
“If I make my son stick to a curfew, will he be better off or will it make him rebel?”
“I don’t want my daughter to see that movie, or spend so much time on social media….but…..if I implement strict rules, will she end up HATING me???"
