Parental Obligations

    Train Toddlers to Share

    Life is not all about one person. It is about many people in your child's life. The sooner the children learn to share with others the better. Take it slowly since a baby is all about themselves and getting what THEY want and not about sharing. Sharing has to be taught and done well. One way to teach sharing is to give the toddler 2 things. Both should be equal in looks so the child can easily give one thing away and still have one for themselves. Tell the toddler to pick one of the things he or she is given and give it to a friend or another child close to them. Praise the child for their sharing and make sure you label it sharing.

    Teach Sportsmanship

    Life if full of episodes of losing or not being the winner. Teach your very young ones the difference and completely celebrate the fact that the child, as small as they are, tried their best. If you find they could have done better and did not put in the full effort, help them get to that achievement even if it means they still were not the top contender in what ever they attempted. Not being the best in all things is inevitable in life. It is not always the end result but the journey that child took to come to the end. Some children only learn this good sportsmanship from home where they can express their disappointment to someone who really cares they did not get the best prize.

    Encourage Saving Money

    There is no program in the lower or higher grades that recommends saving money. It is not just putting money aside for the unexpected things that require finances, but conservation of our planets resources. Waste is a form of abuse of natural energy both tangible and used and gone. Children learn by example really early in life from their role models. Give them good ones in you, and the people you subject them to learning from. Moderation is better than punishing after the waste is already acted on in all aspects. Praise children as they make little strides since they cannot be doing well unless they are encouraged to save money as they grow.

    Personal Manners

    Etiquette used to be a primary focus at home in the more affluent people's homes. Many women and some men were trained in schools to follow good personal behavior around others in small and large groups. Today in the twenty first century, this has almost become a lost action taken by parents toward their offspring. Bring it back into the home with little ideas that are taught so the children of tomorrow will be a pleasure to eat, drink and socialize with for everyone. Books and online info are readily available for anyone to learn. Some adults could also learn personal manners as they educate their children.

    Teach a Child a Craft

    Hopefully you know some craft that you can teach your child. Be patient and keep encouraging the skill until it is learned. If you do not know a craft to share with a child, find someone who does. It is not difficult to discover some kind of handiwork that the child in interested in learning and will seek the skill to master it. When electronics, televisions and all others are not close, this skill will provide countless hours of self entertainment and enjoyment. This is something some parents have that no one else will ever teach them in their journey of life.
