Here are three steps to raising your children well:
Do not fulfill all their whims
If what you want is to give your children the opportunity to live a full life, what you should do is not give them everything they ask for. What’s wrong with that? That they are going to get used to having everything they want in an easy way, whether they deserve it or not. Life is not like that, life is a cluster of circumstances that FORCES you to fight to come out triumphant or at least with some knowledge that makes you a better human being. If a person gets used to having everything they want, they will surely be willing to do anything to achieve their goals, good or bad, they will not care how, they will just do it.
Teach and assign chores to do at home
There is nothing wrong with a boy or girl learning how to make their beds, tidy up the room, sweep or even put their clothes in the washing machine and, from time to time, they do it at home, it is not at all counterproductive. They are basic tasks that will help you when you go to study or work and even when you are on vacation with relatives. Once they are older, it is only fair that they know how to prepare food and the complete chores of a household, men and women alike. The world is changing and demands people who are capable of doing from the simplest to the most elaborate tasks so that they can be good human beings. A man or a woman who is entrusted or entrusted with great responsibilities, are people with great possibilities of success.
Teach them to be thankful and optimistic
Yes, back to the same, but why? Well, someone grateful is a person who APPRECIATES what their loved ones can give them, sees life with joy and not as suffering; furthermore, his sadness will be short-lived and he will be less frustrated by what he cannot achieve. In other words, they are people who are going to bring to the world that special quota of people who love “seeing the glass half full, instead of seeing it half empty.”
As you can see, they are just three simple teachings that put on the table at home all the possibilities that your children need to be adults capable of reaching their goals, respecting their neighbors and living a life with long periods of fulfillment and satisfaction. You should never forget that the best and most pleasant thing that you can inherit for your children is the education that you have given them, not only the one taught in the academy, but the one given by example and nurturing.
