# IV Commandment on Not Messing up Your Kids

IV: Never talk about your child to other people in front of them, unless it is to praise your son or daughter.

You need to be their number one confidant, not a blabber mouth “sharing” what they did and saying it’s “cute”  (let alone saying they did something bad) or laughing at what they did and making them self conscious.

You can’t feel safe with a parent who seems to think you’re an entertainment experience.

And, sure, post a picture or two online (if you must) but your child isn’t a show and tell for your friends.

If your child’s privacy isn’t safe with you who can they trust?
