Sometimes, parents make promises, and, for different reasons, they do not keep them; either because something happened that wouldn't allow it, because they forgot it, or because it was difficult to fulfill. It is common to find children who feel promises were made to them and then broken.
Just as adults get upset about broken promises, it is the same with children. They do not like it when promises are not kept.
You cannot promise something to children expecting them to forget it. They do not forget, and enormous pain and disappointment are generated. Young children usually keep the promises they make if it is within their means. Still, just as they keep their promises, they expect the same from the promises you make.
Adults are an example for children. It is one of the ways they know the world. If promises are broken, children will feel that the world is not safe or trustworthy, which is the opposite of what they expect to receive from the adult. You must keep the promises. In this way, children will feel safe, confident, loved, and learn the values through the example given.
Children who feel safe and loved will transmit that to others. If promises are kept, they will think that trustworthy people surround them, and they will be reliable for others. That will allow them to develop better relationships based on respect, trust, and love. Therefore, make sure you don't make promises you can't keep, as this will only create an emotional void in children.
