The Best Way to Spoil Your Kids
The best way to spoil your kids is not giving them too many material possessions. Some of the wealthiest families I know, who’ve supplied their kids with trips and gifts galore, are also some of the healthiest families I know.
It’s also not giving them too light of a punishment whenever they make mistakes. Some of the best lessons can be learned from experiencing even the slightest of consequences.
No, the best way to spoil your kids is this:
- Give ‘em material gifts instead of your time and genuine interest
- Threaten them with huge punishments (and then never follow through), instead of carefully and calmly training them how to make good decisions
Tomorrow I’ll tell you what can mess ‘em up even more.
Peace begins with pause,
