What do you think of the following statement? We need to trust our kids with responsibility!
When you think of trusting your kids with responsibility, what thoughts come to your mind? Positive? Negative?
The reason I ask is that our teens know what we believe about them, whether we say it with words or not.
Part of the growth and development for our teens happens when they take responsibility for things. When they try things and fail, those are their learning opportunites.
When our teens know that we believe they are capable of doing hard things, they have confidence to try regardless of the outcome.
