Being the oldest child in a family of seven I learned responsibility at a young age. I learned by babysitting and doing lots of chores around the house. Accountability and responsibility seems to be forgotten lessons taught to children the last few decades, though. Today more than ever children need to learn how to be accountable and take responsibility for their actions. It’s a life skill they will need their entire lives. Children who are allowed to do whatever they wish without any consequences often wind up in trouble. It’s never too soon to teach children that there are consequences for their actions. Praise good behavior and address any bad choices made – be sure to explain why it was a good or bad choice. Most importantly set good examples as parents – show your child that you own up and are accountable when you make a mistake. Doing so will not only help your child lead a better life, it will also help the world as a whole. Remember, the children we raise today are the adults we will all have to deal with later – they are also the ones who will be caring for us tomorrow. Teach children to be accountable and responsible, it’s never too early to start. For more tips… http://www.parents.com/kids/responsibility/values/its-not-my-fault/
