How to Be a Better Backseat Driver

Filed under: Parenting 101 — admin @ 12:20 am

Continued from yesterday’s posting. That article provides three advice to those who feel a strong urge to issue instructions.

(1) When you feel you have to say something, take a deep breath before you criticize. Hopefully, a deep breath could hold your tongue back to where it belongs.

(2) Imagine how you would react if the tables were turned. In fact, a lot of problems can dissolve if we can put ourselves in other’s shoes.

(3) Give advice to those who truly appreciate it. In this case, your advice is not unwanted and unwelcome any more. Keep your advice to yourself, no matter how valuable it may seem to you, if the listener refuses to lend your a ear.
