Nag factor: a term that pertains to children


The “nag factor” is a term used to describe a form of psychological pressure that one person puts on another person to change their mind or behavior. It’s a way of manipulating someone that can be subtle or explicit, but it’s always a form of indirect persuasion. In many cases, the person affected by the nag factor does not even realize that they are being manipulated.


Nagging can be very dangerous in a relationship. People who use it often have no intention of being cruel or evil. Rather, they are people who want to do things according to their expectations. This can be detrimental to a relationship, as it can lead to insecurity and addiction.

There are several ways to deal with nagging. One of the most effective ways is to talk openly with the person who does it. Openly ask what she is trying to achieve and what worries her. Respond calmly and calmly and try to reach an agreement. Sometimes talking to a therapist can also be helpful.

Nagging can also be a sign of something deeper within a relationship. Sometimes it can be a way to express insecurities or hide a bigger problem. If you suspect there is a larger problem, it’s important to speak to a professional.

In children, the Nag Factor can be a critical factor in the parent-child relationship. Advertisements and marketing are very effective on children and can push them to insist a lot on obtaining a consumer good, to get out of this form of manipulation three strategies can be implemented: ambiguous dissent, procastination and weak refusal:


1) ambiguous dissent : leave room for the compromise whereby the parent can consent to the purchase of the product as long as it takes place, for example, using pocket money or on a special occasion such as a birthday.

2) Procastination : postponing the purchase hoping the child will forget.

3) weak refusal : trying to compromise to do something to “earn” the requested product.
