Your child should be more responsible.

It can be difficult for a parent to adequately prepare their child for the working world.You can use this guide to make your child feel more responsible and prepared to face life's challenges. Step 1: Your child should be treated with respect. A child will rise to meet your expectations if you think highly of them.Accepting and listening to them will make them trust you and make you proud of them.They will be made to behave well. Step 2: You should show the behavior that you want them to use. Keep your promises if you want them to.If you want them to control their anger, use breathing techniques and walk away.It's possible to explain this out loud.I'm going to go to my room to calm down because I am very frustrated right now.I will come back in five minutes to help clean it up.When your child learns that taking a break is the way to deal with frustration, they will do the same. Step 3: Work on behavior issues with your child. What better way to deal with bad behavior in the future would you suggest?If your behavior played a part, acknowledge it and tell them that you want to do better. Step 4: Allow your child to do new things. Allow your little boy to read on his own, or allow your disabled daughter to tie her own shoes.If they seem to be struggling, ask if they would like help.If they say no, sit back and let them try until they succeed or recognize that they need help.Either way, they'll be working on new skills, either completing the task they attempted or learning how to ask for help. Step 5: Make sure your child's needs are met. Children will behave better if they are fed and rested.Provide a balanced diet, give them plenty of downtime away from screens, and promote exercise.Children can play with toys, read, do arts and crafts, talk with family members, or cuddle.Exercise can become a family project if you want to go for walks, hike, play at playground, go to the pool or beach.Provide healthy snacks, and place fruits and vegetables in bowls on the dinner table for your children to grab from.Try carrots with dip, berries, bananas, oranges, broccoli and cheese.You can let your child pick out a fruit or vegetable at the grocery store.Ice cream with fruit and chocolate sauce is one example of incorporating fruits into desserts. Step 6: Your child should be recognized when they do a good job. You notice when they behave well because you care about them.I noticed how hard you worked on your math problems.Good job!Wow, you did a great job communicating with me.I'm happy that you told me you needed to leave, instead of throwing a fit.I'm proud of you! Step 7: Give your child some work to do. Making their bed, cleaning their room, doing the dishes, feeding the cat, and taking out the trash are some of the chores.A 5-year-old can't wash dishes without dropping or breaking them, so consider your child's abilities when assigning chores. Step 8: Give your child an allowance in exchange for doing chores. If your child does the dishes after supper, she or he will get a sticker.If her chart has six stickers by the end of the week, you will pay her or him.The skills taught are reliability, responsibility, and budgeting time.Your child will be able to plan when to use the day off.One day, the child will be able to handle a monthly salary if she or he earns an allowance. Step 9: Give your child a wage-based job. For example, pay your son $8 an hour for babysitting or your daughter $10 every time she mows the lawn. Step 10: Just like they would in a job, let your children negotiate for raises. Try to teach them negotiation skills and role-play with them.Allow them to negotiate for their wages.If you assign a duty, offer a lower pay than you want.Say "Aren't you going to negotiate?" if they accept.Then try to get a higher wage.If your child is a deep thinker, give them time to think.I'm going to consider raising your wages in two weeks if you can give me a good reason.They have time to research, think and prepare.
