It is true that responsibility comes more naturally to some children over others.
It is also true that we can definitely despair of some of our children learning ANY responsibility.
But – having responsibility can be a learned behaviour, as well as something that happens naturally. Your child will be fine, but it does come down to how you teach it, where you put the emphasis, and about making it EASY for your child to succeed.
- Pets can be a good motivator to teach responsibility for some children
- Reward can be a great motivator
- Being Fair helps some children step up
- Strong Feeling children, can easily step up if you approach with feeling and empathy
There is a ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ approach for some children though. So, if ‘responsibility’ is an important thing for your family, and you are having some difficulties with it, then please get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org
