Who do not want to make their kids as responsible human-beings? Educating your child the responsible behavior, at the very early life stages, helps in making him the more matured, self-dependent and sensible adult.
The first thing in developing the responsible behavior in your child is to assign certain responsibilities to him and make him to do his chores by himself. It is found that the kids who are assigned with the responsibilities develop into more responsible adults rather than the ones who are not assigned with the chores.
Though all the kids have the tendency to run-away from the work, but as the responsible parents, you need to develop in them the habit of doing their chores by themselves. How to do this in a friendly and fun-filled manner is a task to be learned and we are here to guide you as follows:
Allow the Child to Choose
Don’t assign the chores to the child in a way that it seems to him as if he is imposed with them. Make the list of the chores and tell him to choose the chores from the list, which he would love to do. Make him feel important.
Assign the Chore in Smaller Parts
If you assign a task to the child in smaller parts or sub-parts then it does not seem a burden to him. Parents should assist him in doing all the sub-chores to finish one major task, so that he can learn the perfect manner to do that particular task.
Encourage and Admire
If your child has completed certain task in a perfect manner, then appreciate and praise him with some good words and let him enjoy his sense of accomplishment. And, in case, the task is left undone, then don’t scold him. Just explain him the importance of that task for the family and motivate him to finish it.
Prepare a Routine Chart
While assigning the routine chores, it must be shared with the child that these are not the one-day tasks and he needs to accomplish these tasks daily, on a specified time. Prepare the routine chart and paste it in your kid’s room for following the routine. This would also develop the skill of time management in him.
Parents must discuss the advantages and benefits of responsible behavior with their kids and assign them the chores so that they can develop as active responsible adults!
