WAYS TO PREPARE YOUR CHILDREN FOR A BRIGHT FUTURE

1. BE PRESENT IN THEIR LIFE
Don’t delegate your presence to your househelp or relatives

2. SHIELD THEM FROM TRAUMA AT HOME
Nothing holds back progress in development like trauma. Trauma makes children hate being at home when they watch mom and dad fight or the parent treating them badly. Some adults are using so much effort and time undoing the damage of their childhood trauma instead of building their future. Don’t let that be your child

3. BE EASY TO TALK TO
Be approachable. Don’t make your children scared of you that they end up not sharing their questions and struggles. This is what makes future adults find it difficult to be themselves

Don’t expect your children to behave well, talk well if you do not. They are watching

Don’t shield your children too much, allow them to try their own path, to take risks, to experiment and talk with them about lessons learnt

Don’t spoon feed them yes or no answers. Teach them how to arrive at a yes or a no. You will not always be in their life to choose for them

Your children should learn how to interact, how to discern people, how to make friends and keep friends. A bright future will require networking, not isolation

Sexual abuse or misuse ruins destinies. Teach your children how to control their sexual urges

You expect your children to be wealthy, then start early in teaching them financial management. Expose your children to big money and big ideas at a young age so that they won’t find prosperity foreign or a preserve for others

20. TEACH THEM HOW TO HANDLE REJECTION
Rejection is part of life. Teach your children how to accept closed doors, how to moderate their expectations, how to pick oneself up

21. TEACH THEM DISCIPLINE AND PATIENCE
Teach your children that not everything comes easy. Through tasks and games, teach them to stay the course no matter how by difficult. Teach them to finish what they start.

Introduce them to God early, let them know that Allah is our main source and we can do nothing without him in our lives.
