Responsibility by Helen K at Flickr

Responsibility by Helen K at Flickr

Join us as we discuss:

Listener question on little kids hurting animals and others.  Should they be disciplined?

Taking responsibility for our kids behaviors and teaching them different ones.

SHOW NOTES

We operate in a society that loves to blame our kids for their bad behaviors, and they have responsibility in them.  But who do kids learn from…?  Primarily us.  Our kids success depends greatly on our ability to own up to our responsibility, change ourselves, and help our kids change rather than blame them.
