Want More Responsible Kids?

Make them work. I’m not saying to throw them in a coal mine, but responsibility is a good thing.   You should exercise it from a young ago.   It’s not only going to make your life easier, but it’s good for your kid.   Of course, just like anything in life, you need priorities:  family, school and homework come first.

Here is what they stand to gain:

  • They interact with adults and gain experience and confidence.
  • Understand the value of a dollar.
  • Appreciate their parents more….who work five days a week.
  • Since they’re younger, people do not give them a hard time when they mess up.
  • Less hours in front of the TV and video games.

I think too many parents are putting their kids in “La-La Land.” They think by doing everything right, their kids will get the advantage and succeed in life. It’s not what you do for your kids. It’s what they achieve on their own. This is the real world reality.

This is the premise behind Lemonade Day.  Encourage your kids to sell things.  Take them to work with you.  The defacto kid job:  lawn work.
