What parent doesn’t want his or her children to be successful in life? If you’re a parent, I’m willing to bet you desire this too. After all, this is one of the reasons we work hard and sacrifice a lot. If you’ve been wondering what you can do to give your kids an edge in life – then wonder no more. Here are five things science has shown parents do for the majority of children who grow into successful adults.
2 Develop Resilience
This is about nurturing your child’s ability to take failure in their stride and carry on. In other words, to increase their ‘toughness’ and ability to recover from difficulties.
This resilience helps children develop an attitude to tackle problems without being paralyzed by a fear of failure.
To achieve this, let your kids address as many issues as possible on their own. Give them the freedom to take risks and make mistakes. However, it is also important to recognize when you need to intervene as an authority figure.
