Positive Parenting: An Inspiring Method

A friend shared this great article about a unique way of getting your kid to be kind and helpful and to recognize those actions in themselves and in others.

I feel like I get into this rut when it comes to wanting my kids to “participate” in making our house a better place to live.

“What’s one thing you can do?” I am always asking. Or nagging them to put their shoes away, set the table, peel the carrots, and on and on. I don’t want to be the mom who constantly tells her kids what to do, instead of letting them figure it out and letting them WANT to help or WANT to “do good” as this article says.

But really, it’s more than that– it’s how can they get to a place where they regularly have positive affirmations about themselves and others.

I think I am going to try this out.

Thank you, J.J. for sharing.
