  • Welcome to MiYodeya DYH and thanks for this first question. You might want to give more details to ensure you give quality answers, e.g., an example or two, and to make sure the title is well aligned with the question. Also it is not clear who is the "them" at the end: parents or children. Welcome again, great to have you learn with us! – mbloch Jun 15 '18 at 2:42
