    Reading it as a child, I could see how all of these statements do not help my relationship with my parents and I appreciate how it has been linked to another article for more effective communication between parents and children. But if these statements were backed by some reasoning as to why parents shouldn\'t be saying this to their kid then I think it would have been more impactful. As of now it just looks like a checklist of statements one shouldn\'t say, without giving them a reason why they shouldn\'t.
