5.) Help our kids to set their goals for the day, weeks or months ahead.  We must set aside some time to listen to what our kids are hoping to experience in the days, week and months ahead.  This gives us the opportunity to discuss what might be possible for our child to accomplish and experience with our help and support.  This helps our kids learn how to take charge of their life by actively pursuing their developing interests by making them become a reality.

Setting forth strict and uncompassionate guidelines deprives our kids of their ultimate authority in the long run.  Conversely, setting forth no guidelines whatsoever undermines the development of a child’s sense of authority and mastery over their life. 

Let kids see the results of their own choices.  Let them hear the impact of their own words.  They must be able to experiment with the world before them.
