Attention parents! This is worth revisiting often!

Wisdomforlife

In raising four children, like most parents, we tried to build positive character traits into their lives. These are traits that are necessary for both surviving and thriving in the world.

Yet caution is advised because positive traits can easily become negatives. Life is a balancing act. We tried to be more conscious about what I call trimming the positives to protect them from the negatives.

Think about ways you can build the 10 positive traits below into the lives of each one of your children. How can you do this without allowing the negatives to destroy the positives?

Your strategy as parents will likely have to change based on the personality, temperament and challenges related to each child. And never forget that your example will be the most important factor in shaping their lives.

Positives without negatives

  1. Confident without being arrogant.
  2. Humble without being weak.
  3. Determined without being stubborn.
