Tips for Raising Kids Who Love You More Than Your Money
Throughout my new book, Parenting Kids To Become the People Employers Really Want and America Desperately Needs!, I provide a variety of tips for helping kids become responsible adults who succeed in the competitive workforce of tomorrow. Here are just a few examples:
Remember that struggle builds self-esteem.
Requiring our kids to earn some of the things they want is one of the greatest gifts we can give them.
Set limits by saying "yes" instead of "no."
Saying, "Yes, you may have those sneakers if you pay for half of them" is far more effective than, "I am not buying those for you! Do you think that money grows on trees?"
Show them that arguing and manipulation don't work.
Experiment with calmly repeating, "I love you too much to argue" regardless of what they say. They'll be madder in the short-term yet happier in the long-term.
Expect them to do chores without being paid.
Experiment with saying, "I'll be happy to ______________ when your chores are done."
Let them see you say "no" to yourself.
When our kids see us resisting the urge to buy everything we want, they are far more likely to develop humility and responsibility.
After learning about Love and Logic, one couple commented, "When we were kids, nobody in our community had designer clothes, sports cars, or cell phones. It was a lot easier to be a kid and to be a parent. Your book gave us the courage to do what we already knew was right. Now our kids have the most old-fashioned parents on the block!"
Thanks for reading!
