Raising Kids to be Good Decision Makers

I believe very strongly that the core values that you follow as a family will be the foundation that will give your children direction in life.

Parents want to raise confident kids who make wise choices, but the journey from baby to smart-thinking young adult is a long and rocky road. There are many forces in the world that work against parents when trying to raise confident children.

Sometimes it’s all parents can do to get their kids to go out for the team, make the team and then graduate high school. On top of all that, getting them to grow confident and avoid making foolish choices that will impact their lives – that’s a high mountain for mom and dad to climb. Let me make this clear: no parenting formula can guarantee that your child will grow up making intelligent choices. Your child was born with free will, so there are simply no guarantees.
