Being on the side of the child: what does it mean?

Estimated reading time: 14 min.

Code copied

It has become commonplace to believe that parents should always be on the side of their child. But under this “to be on his side” everyone understands something of their own. What if the child is clearly wrong? And to be on his side means to indulge in everything? Why is it so hard to get on his side? These and many other questions are answered by the child psychologist Ilya Suslov.

When should you side with a child?

Situations when parents need to take the side of the child and support him are as follows:

1. External conflict

Something happened – at school, in kindergarten, in the yard, in transport. And strangers make claims to the child: he fought, deceived, stole, was rude, broke, soiled, violated … and so on and so forth. It is not yet about how these claims are justified. The first thing that a sane parent should understand in such situations is that he and his child are one team, and you need to get out of this situation together, at the same time. Even if mom or dad understands that the child is objectively wrong and guilty, it is still better to take the position of a lawyer in relation to him, and not an accuser. Then, at home, during the “debriefing”, it is possible and necessary to explain to the child what he is wrong about, but here and now, at the time of presentation of claims by other people, he must be protected in front of them, reflecting their discontent.

I don’t use the comparison with a lawyer for red words, it is really very accurate. A lawyer defends his client even in the event of his unconditional guilt, including when committing serious crimes, and protection does not consist in “excusing” him from a just punishment, but in protecting him from aggression of third parties and, possibly, unfair punishment. , excessive punishment – as well as punishment for an offense in which guilt has not been proven.

In the same way, in the event of an external conflict, parents should be protectors of their child, that is, they should protect him from everything that his accusers are ready to do with him on emotions. The lawyer, on the other hand, does not interfere with either the investigation or the trial, but strives to ensure that the investigation is carried out objectively and impartially, that the court is guided by the law and humanity, and not by any other considerations. So parents, standing up for the child, seek a humane, reasonable and fair analysis of the situation.

That is, in this case, being on the side of the child means letting him know that his parents are with him, that they love and protect him, that they care about him, that they will not leave him alone with offenders or accusers and will not allow him to him injustice. “No matter what happens, we are one team, we are together, we will protect our own” – this is the thought we broadcast to the child in such situations.

2. Conflict between the child and the parent

This situation is more complicated, because, it would seem, how to take the child’s side if your child quarrels with you? How can you be on his side here?

First of all, you need to understand that, no matter how disgusting forms your conflict takes, it is still your child, you unconditionally love him and unconditionally wish him well. And to stand on his side just means to act for the good out of love for him. That is, one should strive not to satisfy one’s ambitions, not to insist on one’s own at any cost or to “crush rebellion in the bud”, but to ensure that the child is well.


And as soon as you realize this, you will immediately understand that the child is now ill. Because when it’s good, no one arranges quarrels and tantrums. This is the general rule: the child misbehaves because he is not well . And often he doesn’t even realize it.

What does it mean to “take the child’s side” in such a situation? First of all, you need to calmly carry on a conversation, the purpose of which is to understand the immediate causes and motives of the quarrel that happened and, if possible, get to the bottom of its underlying causes.

Most often the reasons are as follows:

  • The child simply does not understand some everyday things due to his inexperience. For example, he does not know that dishes should be washed with hot water, and vegetables with cold. Or he does not know how to use some household appliances, because of which he ruined something.
  • The child is not well. Either physically or psychologically. He has some problems that his parents do not yet know about or do not consider significant. Maybe it’s a quarrel with a close friend or a roommate, maybe it’s a conflict in the class, an unfair attitude of the teacher, maybe complexes about his appearance or low grades, because of which he worries much more than adults. And so the child snaps (thus releasing the accumulated tension).
  • Adolescence and all the delights puberty a. What is commonly referred to as “hormonal problems”. And this is a sharp, outwardly inexplicable change of mood, emotions going wild, resentment, rudeness, it would seem, out of the blue.
  • Real justified grievances against parents – that is, situations where the parents themselves gave a reason . And this is not uncommon either.

And there is only one way out: calmly, benevolently, without shouting, accusations and threats to discuss the situation with the child. And here the parental message is exactly the same as in the case of an external conflict: no matter how offended we are at times, we are together, we are a family, we are a team, and what unites us is much more important than what can separate us. .

3. There is no conflict at all, the child is fine.

This case seems paradoxical: why take the child’s side if there seems to be no problem? But such an approach, I am convinced, is deeply erroneous. Because if we are really a family, really one team, then we should be together not only when something bad happens, but also when something good happens.

To ignore this good thing, to take it neutrally, as something taken for granted and not requiring a reaction, is wrong.

And sometimes that’s exactly what happens. The child achieves some success in areas that are significant to him, but sometimes parents are not particularly interested in this, they do not notice, do not pay attention. Well, my daughter played Cinderella in a school play – so what? All the same, she will not become an actress! Here are English courses – yes, this is important! And the theatrical circle – well … for the general development, it is probably useful, let him go, but the topic is not a priority.

Meanwhile, it is extremely important for any child that parents take an interest in his life, rejoice in his achievements, and appreciate them. This, after all, also manifests parental love, and not only in kisses and gifts. A child at any age needs to understand that he is in demand, that his successes and failures are important to his parents.

And in this case, being on the child’s side just means that we should notice any successes, and not just those that seem significant to us for later life. The kid climbed into a puddle, measured its depth – and glows with happiness. It is necessary not to scold for getting dirty, but to evaluate the achievement (you can remind about accuracy later). A child assembled some kind of construction from Lego – praise, evaluate, ask what difficulties he encountered and how he overcame them. A child composed a poem of two lines – rejoice with him, and do not perceive it as useless nonsense.

Why parents don’t take the child’s side

Even knowing how important it is to support a child, people don’t always do it. And it used to happen even more often than it does now.

A very striking example can be seen in Nikolai Nosov’s early story “Cucumbers”, written almost a hundred years ago, in 1927 (by the way, it was filmed twice – both as a composite short story in the film “Dreamers” and as a cartoon). The boy Kotka took part in the theft of cucumbers from the collective farm field and happily brings the prey home, probably expecting praise. His correct, principled mother calls her son a thief and orders him to take the cucumbers back. Kotka cries, says that there is a watchman with a gun, he will shoot him. “And let him kill! Mom answers. It would be better for me to have no son at all than to have a son of a thief. – And he finishes: Either bring cucumbers, or completely leave the house, you are not my son!

But this was positioned as correct education! Now such ruthlessness of the mother seems to us savagery. However, such savagery was not only a hundred, but even thirty or forty years ago there was as much as you like. Parents were called to school and at home they punished the child, without even trying to figure out the situation, they unconditionally take the side of the teacher. The neighbor complained – and mom and dad instantly and 100% believe her, without the slightest doubt they arrange a trial for the child on the principle of a military tribunal and reprisal. Moreover, such a blind, thoughtless reaction to external claims was considered by many to be a direct fulfillment of their parental duties! And some people still think so.

Why do parents act the way they do?

There are several reasons.

1. Psychological characteristics of parents

Or rather, accentuations, that is, those character traits that have received excessive, hypertrophied development. For example, self-confidence, the desire for justice and self-affirmation by suppressing people who depend on them (children are ideal here), suspicion, irascibility.

2. False stereotypes

For example, that adults are always right, that children always lie and dodge, that children should not be indulged, they should not be praised, otherwise they will sit on their necks, that just as you can’t spoil porridge with butter, there can’t be too much severity, it’s better to overdo it, than to miss.

3. Elementary human pleasing.

Parents are simply afraid of spoiling relationships with people who are significant to them (grandparents and other relatives, teachers, caregivers, doctors, neighbors, colleagues, and so on), so they agree with them. And for themselves, this is explained by the fact that it will be better for the child, that if you do not stand in solidarity with his accusers, they will generally kill him from the world.

And here it is important to understand: we are not talking about some kind of monsters. All of the above to some extent inherent in each of us. Therefore, we should be attentive to ourselves, in time to notice those motivations that prevent us from taking the side of the child.

Being on the child’s side does not mean going along with it.

This is the main objection to being on the child’s side. And it cannot be said that it is completely unfounded. You can give any number of examples of blind, thoughtless parental love, when everything is allowed to a child, dust particles are blown off him, they consider him an angel, they unconditionally support him in all conflicts – and a monster grows up.

The mistake is that people equate different concepts. Yes, being on the side of the child means that one must strive for his good. But what exactly is the good? Who is to decide? A five-year-old toddler who considers it good to eat several servings of ice cream at a time? Or his mother, who considers it a blessing when her son does not have a sore throat? Here the answer is obvious.


But much more difficult is the situation when the child is much older, when he has already formed a personality, when his own system of values ​​has arisen, when there are already some kind of life plans. Is it possible to impose your understanding of the good on him, ignoring his opinion? Here I immediately recall the wonderful film Dead Poets Society, when the tough, authoritarian dad had already decided everything for his high school son: he should follow in his footsteps, become a lawyer, not an actor. The wishes of the boy are not taken into account. It ended with the suicide of his son.

Nevertheless, in most cases, it is quite clear what “going along” consists in the neglect of elementary safety, in thoughtlessness, in the inability or unwillingness to assess the consequences of the child’s actions. And the point here is not that the parent sincerely supports him that it is safe to ride a bike on the highway or that lessons can not be taught. The point here is to please the child here and now, so as not to cause his discontent and thereby avoid a quarrel. That is, in fact, this is an egoistic position, the desire to maintain one’s own spiritual comfort at any cost. Even at the cost of the real good of the child.

If we return to the already mentioned story of Nosov, then we will present alternative versions of the development of events. What would be expressed there “to go on about”? In the reaction of the mother, “well done, son, you did everything right, you are growing up as a breadwinner!”. And what should have been done in order to be on the side of the child, and not to follow his lead? “The cucumbers will have to be returned, we will go with you now, we will explain to the watchman that you simply didn’t think, you wanted to feed us, that you won’t do this again.” But the mother preferred to intimidate her son with threats. It’s easier than going to explain to the watchman!

The fact of the matter is that striving for the good of the child (which is what it means to be on his side) is not easy. You have to overcome yourself, not allowing yourself to either assert yourself at the expense of the child, or curry favor with strangers (again, at the expense of the child), or remain in the comfort zone (and again, at the expense of the child). No matter how trite it sounds, but parental love is sacrificial, selfless.

To be on the child’s side: how?

Need to support the child. But as? In what words and actions should this be expressed? This is especially important to understand in the most common case, that is, in an external conflict.

1. Turn off your emotions and calmly figure out what happened.

Communicating with the accusers should be polite, friendly, in no case devaluing their emotions. On the contrary, you need to say: “I understand your indignation”, “I can imagine myself in your place”, “if everything really happened like that, then it is very unpleasant”, and so on. But at the same time, try not to respond with aggression to emotionally charged words, calmly clarify all the circumstances of what happened. “Did you see it with your own eyes?”, “Who else was present?”, “And when exactly was it?”. It is very useful to clarify: “Do I understand you correctly that the matter was so-and-so?”

2. If in the end it turns out that the child is really to blame.

Then you need to say: yes, this is unacceptable, I understood everything, I will definitely figure it out. But do not specify: I will punish him, I will flog him. Especially if the child is present at this conversation (and most often it happens). You can (and should) express your bewilderment: I don’t understand how this could happen, how my child could do this. But all further conversations, proceedings are already a matter for the family, it is not necessary to dedicate accusers to these details.

3. Discuss what happened with the child at home.

And if in communication with outsiders you act like a lawyer, then in such a conversation you act more like a judge who hears different sides, evaluates their arguments and ultimately makes a decision. That is, you need to hear the version of the child. Even if he has already expressed it before, being present during a conversation with the accusers, it would still be better for him to repeat it at home, in a calm atmosphere, without that nervousness, without the presence of strangers. And here absolutely amazing things can be revealed that we, adults, simply would not have thought of.

Here are two real life examples. One boy described another in kindergarten, on a walk. Horror scandal! The teacher is outraged, the parents of the victim are outraged. And when parsing, it turns out that the boy proceeded from the best of intentions – he saw that his friend’s jacket was dirty, and decided to wash it in this way. For lack of water, he used his own jet. Children are four years old. This is not maliciousness, but, on the contrary, an attempt to do good. The child should have been told: well done for deciding to help a friend, but this is not how it is done, urine is completely unsuitable for this purpose.

Another example. Here is a teenage boy. The father was called to school because the son smoked an electronic cigarette in class. The case is obvious, a lot of witnesses, the teacher is outraged that the boy also dared to argue with him. In the conversation, it turns out that the boy read an article from some shaggy year, which talked about the safety of electronic cigarettes and that they can be smoked in public places. Read and believe. Here, too, it was necessary to explain why he was wrong (and not only because electronic cigarettes are harmful – also because this is a gross violation of the school charter, albeit unconsciously). But at the same time, I note that the behavior of the teenager was not demonstrative, the teacher mistakenly decided that this was a deliberately planned hooliganism.

An important point is the presumption of trust in the child’s words. Should it always be? At first, definitely yes. But if parents periodically catch the child in a lie, including in situations of external conflicts, then everything becomes more complicated. Children’s lies are a separate big topic, but in this case, it is most important to avoid two extremes. The first is to stop believing the child altogether, the second is to ignore the fact of lies and thereby allow oneself to be manipulated. In situations where it is impossible to check the child’s words, you should not tell him: you are all lying! Here you have to take his word for it. But if there is an opportunity to check, it should be done.

And most importantly: you need to realize that lying is a separate problem, perhaps much more serious than the external conflict in which it was revealed, and it must be addressed with precision. How exactly depends on the situation. You may need the help of a psychologist, but in any case, you need to start with an honest conversation. In this conversation (I remind you that this is not a one-time, but a regular lie), I must directly admit: my confidence in your words has decreased, your explanations seem strange to me, it just doesn’t happen that it’s the same thing every time, that from time to time everyone unfairly accuses you, and you always behave perfectly. Let’s see what is really happening, what is the reason?

And in any case, it is necessary to clearly state that even though the child is guilty (if he is really guilty), mom and dad still love him, they are together with him, together with him and solve the problem. That is, to outline a clear and executable plan of action: for example, to apologize to someone, to compensate someone for the damage. The most important thing is for the child to feel that he is not alone with his problems, he has a reliable rear – a family where he is always loved and protected.

A screaming problem: is it possible to keep an abandoned baby to yourself | Articles

A resident of Buryatia found someone else’s one-year-old child in his apartment – the day before he drank alcohol with unfamiliar people. The police have identified the baby’s parents, but have not yet been able to get in touch with the mother. “Izvestia” remembered other foundlings of recent years and found out from lawyers whether it is possible to keep a child abandoned by their parents.

Foster child

Unusual news came from Ulan-Ude – a local resident turned to the police, who found someone else’s child in his home. The boy appeared to be less than a year old. The applicant himself vaguely remembered the circumstances preceding the morning meeting with the baby. Shortly before this, the man abused alcohol and did not remember his drinking companions. On the same day, law enforcement officers identified the boy’s father and mother.

“It is known that yesterday the 43-year-old father of the baby returned late from work and did not find his wife and child at home. Thinking that she was with a friend, the man went to bed. In the morning, his wife called him and said that the police had taken the child away. At the moment, the whereabouts of the 32-year-old mother of a minor has not been established” , – the message of the regional department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs says. The woman was promised to bring to administrative responsibility under Art. 5.35 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation. They clarified that the family is registered with the department for juvenile affairs, the mother of the child has repeatedly drawn up protocols for failure to fulfill parental duties.

The foundling was temporarily placed in an institution.

Last autumn in the Omsk region, a young mother threw her newborn daughter on the porch of the Sargat district hospital. Fortunately, the child did not have time to freeze. And in September 2020, a foundling was found at the gates of one of the temples in Kemerovo. The guard heard a squeak coming from the bag – there was a girl wrapped in a scarf inside.

You cannot give back

These social sketches remind not only the problem of child neglect, but also the difficult legal issue of transferring children to third parties for upbringing. The fact is that caring neighbors sometimes have the idea of ​​participating in the fate of a baby from an asocial family or leaving a foundling with them. But the scenario described in the film “Children of Don Quixote”, where the protagonist took the children left by their mothers into his family, is hardly possible in real life. The person who finds the child has no right to keep it. The law obliges him to declare the find, says Margarita Kurashina, a member of the Russian Bar Association.

In practice, this sometimes happens when, contrary to the law, strangers take a strange or abandoned child into their family. In some cases, people even try to obtain state registration of the birth of a child who has reached the age of more than one year. In the absence of a document on the birth of a child, subsequent state registration occurs only by a court decision to establish the fact of birth.

Instructions for implementation

If a child is abandoned, the finder is obliged to report this within 48 hours to the internal affairs body or to the guardianship and guardianship authority at the place where the child was found, says Margarita Kurashina, a member of the Association of Lawyers of Russia.

“After the transfer of the child, he is placed in any of the following organizations: the body of internal affairs, the body of guardianship and guardianship, or a medical organization, an educational organization or a social service organization,” she explains.

According to the expert, the organization in which the child is placed must declare the state registration of the birth of the found child no later than seven days. Simultaneously with the application, they provide a document on the discovery of the child, which is issued by the guardianship and guardianship authority or the internal affairs body, as well as a document from a medical organization confirming the age and gender of the child. This is discussed in detail in Art. 19 of the Law “On acts of civil status”.

Most often, it is legal to take a child to raise a child if the parents are deprived of parental rights, and the child is removed from the family by the guardianship authorities.

– Only after the child is included in the primary bank of children left without care (maintained by the executive authority of the subject), a person can declare to the guardianship and guardianship authority about his intention to place the child with him until he is placed to a specialized organization for orphans and children left without care, – says Kurashina.

Compliance with legal procedures is important. The state exercises maximum supervision over children, suppresses all encroachments and infringements on their rights. They are also trying to protect them from parents who abuse their rights and violate the interests of the child, up to threats to life and health.

Receive, sign

Practice shows that some children of asocial parents are still raised by other people’s aunts and uncles or distant relatives, but with certain formalities. The law expressly prohibits arbitrarily taking someone else’s child for upbringing.

– Purely theoretically, if a parent is aware of where his son or daughter is, this is possible, – a lawyer, a member of the Public Council under the Commissioner for Children’s Rights, Stalin Gurevich, told Izvestia. — Yes, it happens that an alcoholic listens to common sense and allows his child to live with friends who take care of a minor. In this case, there can be no claims to an outsider.

The lawyer explains that such agreements are outside the law. She also stressed that in this case, the biological parents are not relieved of the duties assigned to them to raise a child. In addition, an informal agreement does not solve a number of problems that prevent the child from exercising his rights in full.

– In this case, those who take care of the child will not be able to place him in a kindergarten. There will be difficulties in providing medical services. Such an adult has no authority,” adds the lawyer.

Some issues can be settled by issuing a power of attorney for the right to be a representative of the child, says the interlocutor of Izvestia.

– But do not confuse representatives and legal representative, these are different concepts. The legal representative can be either parents or guardians. That is, those people who, in the manner prescribed by law, received custody of the child, Gurevich notes.

If a caring adult in the neighborhood sees that a child is in danger, needs care that he cannot receive from his parents, then you should turn to the state for help.

– Having agreed with guardianship, a person can ask to transfer a minor to him under temporary guardianship. It often happens that parents are limited in their rights (without deprivation) and are provided with temporary guardianship to a person who has expressed a desire to take care of a minor. For example, you are neighbors, the child has known you for a long time. In this case, guardianship is formalized and the person becomes the official representative of the child for a certain time: first for six months, and later it may be possible to become a permanent guardian if the mother and father are deprived of parental rights, for example, the lawyer explained.

Abduction from nobility

It is illegal to go and pick up a child from a drinking neighbor on your own. Such actions can be regarded as child abduction. Such acts are punishable by law.

— This kind of charity is not worth doing. Mom and dad can sober up at some point and make a fuss that the child was stolen. For the person who took the baby, it will be an article,” she said.

It happens that a child is not given to a person who has become attached to him with his soul, and custody is transferred to other families according to a formal principle.

– This happens when some people in the guardianship authorities are not very conscientious about the transfer of children. But you need to understand that such an “auction” is typical for healthy babies when the parents are known and these are not antisocial couples. In other words, when it comes to a “guaranteed” child. As for the children of alcoholics, they, based on practice, are not much needed by anyone. Therefore, if there are people who really want to take care of the baby, give him a happy childhood, then the guardianship authorities, as a rule, do not interfere with this process, Gurevich said.
