Instead of giving answers to your children's questions, use this opportunity to empower them. Turn the tables by asking your child the same question allowing room for them to repossess their own problems. Making decisions for your children can cripple their performance level.
Challenge your children to make decisions that increases their potential for success. Provide opportunities that stimulate your child's thinking toward achieving a higher performance level.
Set a higher standard of performance for yourself and your children. Refuse to parent your children with a limited mindset.
