dear MOM and DAD, I Love You But Please Don't...

Don't spoil me. I know quite well that I ought not to have all I ask for. I'm only testing you.

Don't be afraid to be firm with me. I prefer it. It makes me feel more secure.

Don't let me form bad habits. I have to rely on you to detect them stupidly "big".

Don't correct me in front of people if you can help it. I'll take much more notice if you talk quietly with me in private.

Don't make me feel that my mistakes are sins. It upsets my sense of values.

Don't be too upset when I say "I hate you," It isn't you I hate, but your power to thwart me.

Don't protect me from consequences. I need to learn the painful way sometimes.

Don't take too much notice of my small ailments. Sometimes they get me the attention I need.

Don't nag. If you do, I shall have to protect myself by appearing deaf.

Don't make rash promises. Remember that I feel badly let donw when promises are broken.

Don't forget that I cannot explain myself as wel as I should like. That is why I am not always very accurate.

Don't be inconsistent. That completely confuses me and makes me lose faith in you.

Don't tax my honesty too much. I am easily frightened into telling lies.

Don't put me off when I ask questions. If you do, you will find that I stop asking and seek my information elsewhere.

Don't tell me my fears are silly. They are terribly real and you can do much to reassure me if you try to understand.

Don't ever suggest that you are perfect or infalliable. It gives me too great a shocl when I discover that you are neither.

Don't ever think that it is beneath your dignity to apologize to me. An honest apology makes me feel surprisingly warm toward you.

Don't forget I love experimenting. I couldn't get on without it, so please put up with it.

Don't forget how quickly I am growing up. It must be very difficult for yo to keep pace with me, but please do try.

Don't forget that I can't thrive without lots of understanding and love, but I don't need to tell you that, do I?
