Every parent has had a moment where they’ve stared at their screaming, tantruming child and wondered, “Am I doing this wrong? Am I creating a monster?”
Raising a child up into adulthood is a path full of struggles. We all want our children to be the sort of perfect angels that will make other parents coo in awe and envy, but it doesn’t always work out that way.
As it turns out, though, raising a perfect child might not be such a great thing after all. According to psychologists, some of those terrible things your children do that drive you insane are actually working wonders for their development – and might be great signs about their futures.
