1 Don't spoil me. I know quite well that I ought not to have all that I ask for. I'm only testing you.
2 Don't be afraid to be firm with me. I prefer it. It makes me feel more secure.
3 Don't let me form bad habits. I have to rely on you to detect them in the early stages.
4 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.
5 Don't forget how quickly I'm growing up. It must be very difficult to keep pace with me, but please try.
6 Don't be inconsistent. That completely confuses me and  makes me lose faith in you
7 Don't protect me from consequences. I need to learn my sense of values.
8 Don't nag. If you do, I shall have to protect myself by appearing deaf.
9 Don't make rash promises. Remember that I feel let down when promises are broken.
10 Don't forget that I can't thrive without lots of understanding and love.
