Gone are those days when parents used to guide their wards in every moment of life. Perhaps much better way is to help kids to be responsible for their own life. The happiest moment for any parent is to see their kids flying their own in every walk of life, at this point they are satisfied. Well, talking about responsibility, it is the important aspect of life, even many elders fail to be and now we are expecting kids to be responsible. But, it is the need of the day, start making them responsible today for small life instances, so that they can grow as a responsible individual tomorrow.
Now How to develop it?
- Asking suggestions:
In earlier generation, kids were only thought of playing and studying rest of all the part of life is the only task of parents. Well, this system has to be replaced now, ask kids opinion in family decisions, make them counted. Let them feel as a part of family team. Such kind of authority creates responsibility.
- Think before acting:
It is not only required to ask for opinions, but explain them the aspects of their opinion in various scenarios. It is a skill to think before acting, and we want unknowinlg to teach kids to take slow down for actions and think on all the aspects. In this, we are making them aware about every action and they are developing a precaution against odds.
- Patience is the key:
Parenting is a journey, there is no defined destination. Satisfied parenting is not a single day game, it is a process which has to be practiced every day consistently. It is the parents patience which can develop kids in right order.
- Every decision is a good decision:
Ask kids to come out of analysis paralysis,that is thinking too much. Let’s make them habitual to take decision and be firm with it no matter what so ever happens. It is habit that when something goes wrong we conclude that it was a bad decision. Well, there is nothing kind of “bad decision”. It is our power to face the reactions of our actions. The more firm we are the more we live easily.
- Discussing over teaching or lecturing :
Lastly, parenting is a continuous process, but Today the need is to involve kids in discussion over teaching. Help them to understand your point of view in their format do not impose your expectations on them.
