Who’s Educating Your Kids?
How can we raise responsible kids in a negative and complacent world?
The possible is simple but not easy!
1. Turn them on the great books, the classics.
Don’t count on high technology and the negative media to educate your kids. If you do they will be controlled by technology and the media.
2. Turn the kids on a self-education system.
Don’t count on the public system to educate your kids. If you do, it will be with their morals and values.
3. Take full responsibility for your kids’ education.
Invest time and money in providing the right experiences. If you don’t those that do will earn your kids following.
4. Be a role model for your kids.
We can teach what we know; we will only duplicate who we are.
Take a moment and ask your kids. Who is your hero?
5. Help them to make and keep the right friends.
We become who we associate with.
Encourage your kids to associate with kids from different personalities and cultures.
6. Allow them to experience the pain of failure.
Turn them onto leadership and entrepreneurship at a very early age.
Help them to see the world with different set of lenses.
7. Help them to become self-disciplined.
Encourage and uplift during the difficult and frustrating times.
Your kids will either trust you or blame you for the level of discipline you instilled in them.
Thank you for reading and reflecting on today’s nuggets. Share them with others.
We make a living by what we get; we make a life by what we give. Be a giver in a world of takers.
Be blessed and be a blessing to others.
