Episode 2: Teaching Responsibility

As a mom of four young children who struggles to set expectations and get her kids to help around the house (without a lot of push back and complaining), Michelle offers some amazing insight into fostering responsibility and a sense of community in young children. As parents, we hold the duty of setting reasonable expectations for our children, because, in fact, they are critical in raising a thriving, happy, and successful child.

In this episode, you will learn:

* Why the intention to impart responsibility on our children is a beautiful goal

* How to give your children ownership in the community of your home and to understand that their participation matters

* How to help children develop the capacity to contribute to a community

* What it means to discipline behavior NOT attitude

* What natural consequences of behavior are and why they are so effective

* Strategies for setting expectations in your home and how to enforce them respectfully
