How do I teach my kids to be responsible at school?

Posted on 5/1/2019 by Greg Yoder

That’s a GREAT question. Our kids are so different. Some kids come out of the womb responsible. Others need a little training. Others have to have their hands held all through school. Here’s what we did. We held their hand as they entered school. Helped them establish good study habits. Then, we made ourselves available to help, ask questions, and let them kind of find their own way. Then, at parent-teacher conferences, we determined whether or not to give them a longer leash or continue guiding them closely. Most of my kids responded really well to this. It worked for us. My oldest daughter became an honor student and graduated with honors from Clemson University. Yep, I’m a proud dad.

Suggested Reading: Galatians 6:5 1 Corinthians 3:8
