In a foolish culture, praise your kids when they say and do wisely.
Why should we commend our children for making wise choices? Why is commending your child in front of others important?
A Glimpse of Wisdom in A Not So Wise Culture.
How often do you commend your teenagers for making wise and mature decisions? I am talking really making over them, maybe even commending and sharing their story in front of friends and relatives as often as circumstances allow. Today’s kids are so inundated with bad information, largely through social media that adopting Americanized attitude of perpetual juvenile foolishness is just standard fare for so many.
So, when your teen shows glimpses of wisdom in the midst of their, not so wise culture, make it a big deal. Even though many kids today are addicted to social media and other forms of digital technology, studies show that Mom and Dad are still their greatest influence.
