A Parent Study on Raising Successful Kids!

A Parent Study on Raising Successful Kids!

Parents, I really do not believe there is only one best way to raise our kids. However, since I also believe that all of us parents want to raise our kids to the best of their abilities, then it can't hurt to take a quick look at a recent study of what some successful parents do.
Names that are easy to pronounce came up in the study. Why our children's names matter? Hmm... I'm not sure about this one, but I can tell you this; I have five successful kids of my own, and coincidentally, I think all of their names are easy to pronounce. However, now that I think about it, people do seem to botch my oldest daughter's name sometimes.
The parenting study also says that a sharing of the responsibilities around the house by both mom and dad is extremely helpful in raising successful, happy kids. When both parents, mom, and dad, step in when they see something that needs to be done, whether it's bringing in some extra money, doing the dishes, tackling that never-ending cycle of laundry, or even wiping a child's behind, the family unit seems to run smoother. And the kids, in the end, benefit from this kind of teamwork environment. However, I didn't see my parents doing this sort of thing of equally sharing the work around the home.
The last tip says teaching our kids math and grit early on is a good thing that most successful parents who raise successful and happy kids do. I spent a lot of years practicing math and grit, but ended up as a history and special education teacher. I hope the math and grit thing somehow adds to the well-being and success of my own children.
Now, as my Granddaddy always said, "Go learn, lead and lay the way to a better world for all of us." Remember to check out the parent studies every once in a while, but don't go overboard with it, though. Remember, you already know what to do. And once again parents, thanks in advance for all that you do, and all that you will do...
