“The price of greatness is responsibility”
As parents, we want to always protect our children from any harm. Sometimes we try to protect them from themselves. When they are young and dependent on us, we are responsible for their care and well being. As they get older, we have to teach them to be responsible. In order for young children to become self sufficient and self reliant adults, we have to instill in them the importance of being responsible. Don’t always rush to help or rescue your children or help them to solve their problems. As they get older, they will rely on others to solve their problems for them. Teach your child not to blame others for their mistakes or misfortunes. Help them to develop a healthy sense of self.
