Teaching Our Children To Be Responsible
In this daily changing world we're all living in, I can only hope that we continue to teach our children the importance of values. Plus, now that the school year has been completed, the above suggestions may help! The old cliche' "it takes a village" is so very true. Our children are watching what goes on around us, they are listening to the conversations that occur, and they are probably as confused as I AM! Daily schedules, routines and 'normalcy' have all changed drastically this past year. None the less, as an adult, I feel it's our responsibility to continue to teach our children these vital core values. Responsible Rabbit is one of the nine Characters of Character which offers activities to engage a child in and lesson on what it means to be responsible. One of which is wearing a mask. Discuss with your children what your expectations are around this topic. Use the template below to help reinforce this.
Above are some good tips to help teach your child to be responsible. I myself am a big fan of gratitude as it has the power to change your mindset. When you find gratitude in the daily walk of life, you can change your mindset! Here is a template to help teach responsibility with Responsible Rabbit and to discuss what gratitude means with your children. You'll be amazed!
