Truth or falsehood: Kids should be seen and not heard.?
This was a concept mainly acceptable to middle and upper class Victorian Britons. Children really were raised (generally by nannies and governesses, in nurseries and schoolrooms), and presented to parents on very limited occasions when they were indeed to be seen but to say very little. Did it harm them? Not really as much as you might think. Discipline was valued then. Not so now.
True with a little alteration. Kids should be seen more than heard. AND & NOT make all the difference in the world. I dont have kids so I am not sure. Kids seen and heard seems a lot for a parent these days. Kids seen not heard is neglectful and borderline abusive. Kids seem more than heard reminds of my upbringing. "I will give you everything you need. You go get everything you want."
It's not a matter of true or false, it's just preference if you don't want to hear kids speak.
Many times, that’s often true.
