I sincerely believe that it is far more beneficial and far less costly to help a child build confidence than it is to fix an adult who has little or none.

Are you a full time or part time parent?

on May 30, 2014

Family Eating An Al Fresco MealParenting is a full time job that requires a lot of time and effort.  Finding time in this busy world can be a real challenge but it is important if you want your children to become responsible, caring adults.  You can’t be a part-time parent if you want a full-time child and a full-time family.  Parents need to be actively involved in the lives of their children and show them how valuable they are.  If you have too many things going on in your life, determine what is really important and cut out anything that you don’t really have to do.  You DO NOT have to be a super-person like the world tells us.  You just have to do the best you can and being a good parent is far more important that most other things.

Take the time to teach your children to:

  • love themselves and love others
  • be a positive role model
  • have good manners
  • be encouraging and supportive
  • communication effectively
  • spend valuable time with their family and friends
  • set and work towards realistic goals
  • accept failure and learn from their mistakes
  • be a responsible, caring adult
  • be thankful for what they have
  • help others and show kindness
  • never give up

Remember that everything has consequences.  If you take the time to teach your children important things, the whole family will benefit.  However if you don’t take the time to teach your children important things, the whole family will suffer and there will be a lot of problems to deal with.    The choice is yours.
