Imagine my surprise, as I looked for articles to share on my weekend round up when Forbes magazine popped up! I mean really, what can Forbes tell us about parenting? They are designed to speak about business, leadership, investing, and entrepreneurs. So how does that qualify them to write about parenting?
I was so curious about their position, especially given the title “7 Crippling Parenting Behaviors That Keep Children From Growing Into Leaders” that I had to read it. I found the actual list of behaviors a bit redundant (maybe because the article was dated January, 2014.) But the pointers offered by Dr. Tim Elmore have a lot of value. I especially love number 9. “Help them envision a fulfilling future, and then discuss the steps to get there.”
As parents we can talk about how to be fulfilled. We can talk about how to work hard to get to the end goal in any facet of life. We can lead by example.
What do you think?
Here is the article of which I speak.
