12 Life Changing Principles
Work Ethic/Active Lifestyle
There are people who read their story and they’re people who write their story. Let’s raise them to write an awesome story! Writing a story takes action and we need to teach our children to be action oriented!
- Knowing how to focus on a project and get it done to completion.
- Up hill dreams need up hill habits! Teaching them how to work will teach them habits to be successful!
- Healthier in mind, body and spirit!
- Teach them the power of checking off the box. Research shows endorphins (natural stimulates) are released when you check something off that you just completed.
- Clean your room. check it off!
- Homework. check it off!
- Activity. check it off!

2. Creative Problem Solving Skills
In this day and age kids need to know how to solve complex problems. It’s important that mom & dad let them figure things out on there own. Sadly, I see many parents baby and shelter their their kids and ultimately create non-functioning human beings who are unable to solve there own problems.
- They will know how to solve problems.
- They will be independent.
- e.g. Coach them…don’t tell them…ask them what should you do? Make them think! Giving examples is ok.
What activity could your share with them that illustrates problem solving?
To Show Respect.
Respecting elders, different cultures, view points, and respecting people for who they are is very important. Some believe we have lost this respect to some degree as a society. Working in education for over 20 years I’ve seen young men and women who were raised to not understand this principle…not respecting adults, teachers, other human beings.
- Respect and honesty are the cornerstones of character.
- They will be known for being ethical and moral.
- Share mistakes you have made as a kid and adult.
- Model telling the truth and showing respect.
What stories or examples could you use to show the importance of telling the truth?
Having courage to take on difficult situations and say the things that need to be said is important. I have found many people and businesses tend to want to stay in the fog which is a comfortable non-reality and not address the real issues and situations. Uncommon men and women and successful businesses want to know what to know and understand what the true reality is! They understand the law of the score board!
- Get them out of their comfort zone.
- They will embrace true reality and understand things won’t always go there way. That its going to be ok!
- They will understand Winning isn’t everything. There’s winning and then there’s learning. Sometimes you’re meant to lose so that you will learn from the experience!
- Model showing courage.
- Give them examples of stories of family members who showed courage.
What are ways that you can teach your child courage?
When is it important to have courage?

Goals are important, however sometimes once the goal is checked off growth stops and you can’t let that happen! Teaching our children that growing as a person in mind, body, and spirit each day, month, and year is the most important thing a child can realize. Reading, meeting different types of people, and differing view points cause growth.
