Raising Responsible Adults
Raising Responsible Adults and today I want to talk to you about the importance of facilitating our kids to become responsible adults someday and the style does that is to get them to do hard situations. In today's society, it seems like quite often we are too easy on our kids. Especially since mamas, it's tough to set the type of press on our children or allow them to experience the kind of pressure that will help them to grow strong and intrepid. So, today in this video, I want to talk about three ways that we can help our kids to become responsible adults. And the first style is to tell them to compete. Let's face it. Receiving a participation award isn't all that great of an accomplishment. Um, yeah, you evidenced up but did you do anything to earn that award? No. Our kids learn a lot when we allow them to compete with one another. When we enabling them to lose, frankly.
Our boys and girls discover a ton from acquiring and from being good wins, but they likewise find a bunch that builds their character when it comes to losing. It's style easier to win than it is to lose, so we have to make sure that our kids are allowed to be in situations. Situations where they are allowed to lose and learn from what they did wrong and perfect their technique and compete again and hopefully do better the next time.
The second style to help our kids become responsible adults is to give them responsibilities. There are lots of ways that we can do this. We can give them duties to do all over the residence. When "they will be" 16 or older we are in a position tell them to hold a job, and that's a tremendous style to be Raising Responsible Adults. You can also just let them be responsible for their action. For instance, if "they will be" going to need to leave for a boy group occurrence at a particular time, tell them to be the one that watches the clock. Tell them to choose what they need to bring with them and tell them to be responsible for that. And if they forget something that they really could have benefited from having the next time I bet you they won't forget to create that with them. So, that's the second largest style, tell them to be responsible for some of their substance. We need to try not to hover quite so much and make sure to protect them and that they have everything they need.
Let's let them constitute some decisions and constitute some incorrect decisions, frankly, and then they can learn lessons from those and make better decisions next time. The third style for us to grow responsible adults is for us to let them face their fright. Tell them to do hard situations. Tell them to do situations that frighten them, frankly. When they are old enough to look for a task tell them to be the ones that constitute the phone calls and enter into negotiations to the enterprises and ask if "they'il be" requiring any aid. If they're afraid of public speaking and they've been invited to pray at religion or share a Bible poem, or a testimony tells them to do it. Now, I'm not saying that you simply shed them out to the wolves, tell them to practice with you, give them a criticism, allow them to try to do the best that they can.
And certainly, we're here to navigate them and to help them, but if it's something that they're afraid of and they face it, and they do it they are going to get so much encouragement and spirit from that. I think back to a long time ago when I was in my early 20' s; I was frightened of skydiving. And I was also the type of person ... I was trying to push myself, so I did it. I extended ahead and planned a class for myself to learn how to jump out of an airplane safely. Is that possible to safely jump out of a plane? I don't know. But anyway, I did it. I extended down on a Saturday, and I expanded the whole day reading how to skydive and then I got on an aircraft, and they took me up to 4,000 hoofs, and I jumped. And I remember how utterly frightened I was when they opened that opening. They told me to crawl out onto the wing of the plane and hang there from this saloon that they had on the bottom of the wing and I let go, and I think I candidly passed out forgot a couple of seconds.
But fortunately, I was jump-start from a static wire because it was my first leap. And I was supposed to count to five and then look up and make sure my gutter had opened. And I remember all of a sudden realizing I wasn't counting to five and I looked up, and my drain was open, so then I was able to steer around, and land and it was quite an amazing adventure. But I simply remember the adrenaline that I had after that and how what an excellent experience it came to do something that frightened me and to face that fear and to overcome it. So, anyway, when it comes to elevating responsible kids there are lots of different things that we can do I just mentioned three of them: facing your frights, Raising Responsible Adults, and competing, but I've actually written a blog post that talks about eleven different ways that it is possible to Raising Responsible Adults.
So, I will link to that in the description of this video. And if "you've had" suggestions for ways that you have raised responsible adults I would love to hear what you have done in the comments. I think that if we can all share the experiences that we have had and the things that we have done successfully that will be a huge help to all of us. So, please leave a comment. And if you haven't subscribed to my canal yet or liked my Facebook page, I would love to have you do that. That would be super useful to me.
So, let's getaway there and heighten responsible adults. We can do it! So, again, this is Michelle Caskey from Homeschool-Your-Boys.com and I hope you have a wonderful day.
