Am I responsible to my child or for my child

Tuesday Tips for Parents
Am I Responsible To My Child or For My Child

This topic came as a question submitted to us within the last few weeks. Experts have a variety of opinions as to how to teach responsible behavior but most agree that as children mature, they increasingly are responsible for their own behavior.

Learn more about instilling the responsible behavior in your child to raise children who understand that they are responsible for their own decisions – Today at 12:30pm on our Facebook Live Show – www.facebook.com/skillz4kidz

The younger a child is, the more people see parents as responsible for their children’s behavior an choices. Children must be taught the difference between right and wrong and the importance of making the right choices. Even more importantly, children must be taught that all choices have consequences. They must understand that good choices have positive consequences (people feel loved, a friend smiles, the dog has food to eat, etc) and that bad choices have negative consequences (hurt feelings, someone gets hurt, the dog is hungry, etc).

Parents want children to understand that choices do have an impact on people and animals, however, sometimes to do this we must use methods in combination with telling them about how choices make people feel or how it affects them. There are obviously many ways to do this, but one way that teaches responsibility really well is a behavior agreement. A behavior agreement puts the responsibility on the children as long as the parents are consistent in enforcing the agreement.

The way in which a Behavior Agreement works and even the way it looks depends on the age of the child. In today’s show at 12:30pm – we will discuss different ages – from very young to teens.
