Having responsibilities help our kids learn about being accountable and teach them the value of hard work. And research shows it is good for them – for their happiness and overall wellbeing.
So, how can we raise responsible children?
To raise responsible kids, give them responsibility! Teaching kids responsibility doesn’t have to be tricky or overly complicated. At its core, we are teaching our kids that they can do something, by teaching them how to do that thing. Giving them the mindset (can-do attitude) plus the abilities (life skills) leads to responsibility.
PLUS having some extra help around the house reduces parental stress and increases family fun! It’s a win-win!
