There is an old saying that if you give a person a fish you will feed them for a day while teaching them to fish will feed them for a lifetime. Teaching a child to be responsible is like teaching a person to fish. When a child is raised in a way that encourages independence they truly understand that their success in life is a result of their own motivation to succeed. Children who rely on their family to remind them to do chores or classroom assignments develop in ways that are destructive to their success as adults. We’ve all heard of the parent who feels they must call their college student to make sure they are awake and prepared for their academic challenge.
Raising a responsible will be more easily achieved by learning and practicing a few key strategies. Many parents wait until their child is exhibiting problematic behaviors before seeking assistance. It is never too late or early to learn the core principles of raising a responsible child.
Parents, I will help you to:
- School Success
- Peace in the Home
My belief is that ALL family members are entitled to mutual respect.
Parents should provide opportunities for children to make decisions within limits so they can learn responsibility.
Discipline using natural and logical consequences can replace rewards and punishers.
I strive to emphasize the opportunity to TEACH children through respectful and responsible choices.
Communication and encouragement help to create relationships of love and respect.
All parents need education to better meet the challenges of raising children.
Parents consistently report amazing result in just days, but that is only the beginning.
By taking charge of your parenting plan you do so much for your children.
They will grow more responsible, respectful, independent and successful.
It will work for you. I promise!
