How to Prepare Your Children For Bright Future
In any sphere of life, preparation is paramount. Otherwise, every action will be guided by trial and error. Some children may not recover very well from any wrong consequence. The ability to prepare your children in any regard will largely determine their success or a bright future.
1. BE PRESENT IN THEIR LIFE
Don’t delegate your presence to your house help or relatives
2. SHIELD THEM FROM TRAUMA AT HOME
Nothing holds back progress in development like trauma. Trauma makes children hate being at home when they watch mom and dad fight or the parents treat them badly. Some adults are using so much effort and time undoing the damage of their childhood trauma instead of building their future. Don’t let that be your child.
3. BE EASY TO TALK TO
Be approachable. Don’t make your children scared of you so that they end up not sharing their questions and struggles. This is what makes future adults find it difficult to be themselves.
4. MODEL BY EXAMPLE
Don’t expect your children to behave well, talk well if you do not. They are watching
5. BE SPECIFIC ABOUT THE VALUES YOU WANT TO INCULCATE IN THEM
Identify at least four values you want to teach your children. Is it hardwork, honesty, respect… if you are not specific, you can’t be effective, you can’t measure it.
6. SPEAK LIFE INTO THEM
Pray for them, speak blessings over them; especially in their presence. Call out their greatness. “You will do great things my child”
7. SHARE YOUR WINS AND FAILURES
Tell them your stories, lessons you have learnt. Your biography as a parent is powerful. Be real and vulnerable
8. GIVE THEM ROOM TO MAKE MISTAKES
Don’t shield your children too much, allow them to try their own path, to take risks, to experiment and talk with them about lessons learnt.
9. TEACH THEM HOW TO MAKE DECISIONS
Don’t spoon feed them yes or no answers. Teach them how to arrive at a yes or a no. You will not always be in their life to choose for them.
10. IDENTIFY THEIR PURPOSE AND TALENT YOUNG
Keep your children from wasting time. Find out what they are great at and passionate about and support it early. This will give them a head start and help them with forming an identity.
11. TEACH THEM HOW TO MAKE FRIENDS
Your children should learn how to interact, how to discern people, how to make friends and keep friends. A bright future will require networking, not isolation.
12. PROVIDE FOR THEM A SUPPORT SYSTEM
Link your children to mentors, uncles, aunts, public figures who can add value to them. Let your child grow up in a community of pro-growth people
13. TEACH THEM TO BE SEXUALLY RESPONSIBLE
Sexual abuse or misuse ruins destinies. Teach your children how to control their sexual urges.
14. TEACH THEM HOW TO HAVE A GOOD RELATIONSHIP WITH MONEY
You expect your children to be wealthy, then start early by teaching them financial management. Expose your children to big money and big ideas at a young age so that they won’t find prosperity foreign or a preserve for others.
15. BE THEIR BIGGEST CHEERLEADER
Don’t criticize your children to the point they feel like a failure. Instead, they celebrate their wins and progress, no matter how small
16. DISCOURAGE SIBLING RIVALRY
Don’t show favouritism. Don’t make any child perceive you have favourites. Encourage them to accept each other’s uniqueness and be united
17. GIVE THEM FOND MEMORIES
Good childhood memories make adults more confident about the future.
18. GIVE THEM THE BEST EDUCATION
As much as you can, invest in a good education for them. It compliments your parenting.
19. TEACH THEM HOW TO BE INQUISITIVE
Let your children love knowledge and be thirsty to understand the world outside the classroom. Teach them that studying is not just to pass exams and that there are valuable lessons to learn outside of formal education.
20. TEACH THEM HOW TO HANDLE REJECTION
Rejection is part of life. Teach your children how to accept closed doors, how to moderate their expectations, how to pick oneself up
21. TEACH THEM DISCIPLINE AND PATIENCE
Teach your children that not everything comes easy. Through tasks and games, teach them to stay the course no matter how difficult. Teach them to finish what they started.
Introduce them to God early, let them know that God is our main resource and we can do nothing without him in our lives.
