Teach children about 2 words “responsibility”

“Responsibility” is the next lesson that needs to be taught to children from an early age. Give children some small “tasks” around the house that parents don’t need to interfere with. Once the child finishes, parents can check back. If the child does well, you can praise and reward him or her with a small gift. However, if the child does not do well or has not completed the task, you can analyze for him or her to understand how he or she should do better, then guide the child to complete the assigned task.

Alt: Analyze and explain to children about self-responsibility

Teaching children responsibility helps develop self-management skills and personal motivation. When children understand that they are responsible for their actions and decisions, they become more deliberate, selective, and confident in making decisions and taking control of their lives. At the same time, children will develop the ability to set goals and make efforts to achieve what they want.

Rewards & punishments must always be fair

In order for children to clearly understand “responsibility” in the things they are assigned and done, rewards & punishments must always be fair. Not only encouraging children to be motivated to try to complete, but children will develop self-discipline, independence and give up the habit of procrastination.

Alt: Be fair in rewarding and punishing your child

On the contrary, if parents reward their children too much or punish them too harshly, it will greatly affect the child’s psychology. In particular, children will feel unfair and become frustrated when performing assigned “tasks”. That can cause many consequences affecting the development of children in the future. Specifically: Children develop laziness, lack of motivation, shyness, or worst of all, there is a gap between children and parents.

Learn other soft skills

In addition to the important and necessary skills above, parents can let their children learn other soft skills. Soft skills help children discover and develop their personal potential. Thanks to these skills, children can focus on developing their own passions, interests and talents, thereby identifying goals and creating a meaningful, happy life.
