Durban - RID your children of depression, misery, addictions, and negative behavioral choices in future, by teaching them of purpose, connection, acknowledgment and a healthy sense of independence.
According to Director and Co-founder of Step Up Education Centres, Cindy Glass, it is important to teach these valuable life skills to children, from a very young age, and within a home environment.
"The teaching of responsibility within your home, and benefits of teaching a healthy sense of responsibility will help children believe that they are capable and worthy, engender feelings of achievement and upliftment, increases independence, confidence and leadership skills.
"It will also teach children the skills that they will need to live more successful adult lives. Encourages self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, social skills and self-care."
However, Glass added that it is important that responsibilities within the home need to be age appropriate.
