Do you have children? Do you worry about the selfish nature of kids today? Well don’t worry because today we shared some tips from allprodad.com for teaching you kid that it is not all about them. Here are some of the tips we especially likes
Self-absorption eventually saturates everyone around you.
If you have a “me-first” attitude, chances are your children will as well. Instead of immediately going for the easy chair after work, ask your wife if there is something you can do for her before unwinding. When your children see you putting others first, they’ll follow suit
Discuss the value of hard work.
When your children admire someone in the limelight, take time to talk about how much work goes into developing a talent or skill. It can be as simple as, “You know, it takes years of hard work to be able to sing like that.” Or a question, “Do you think it’s more important to be famous than it is to do the best you can with the gifts you’ve been given?” This will help your children begin to recognize the value of hard work versus cheap fame.
Praise your children.
Be careful not to honor shortcuts, cheating, or success that comes at the expense of others. While we applaud our children’s accomplishments, we shouldn’t do so insincerely or indiscriminately. If your child hits a dribbler to the shortstop, praise him for running hard to first base even though he was called out. But don’t make him out to be Babe Ruth unless he really does knock it out of the park.
