Raising kids with a strong work ethic is crazy important especially as so many kids feel entitled and expect you to do everything. The most important thing to know about hard work, is that it is learned. It can begin as early as in the toddler years. Start out by giving your child “learning opportunities,” like clearing the dishes, putting their dirty clothes in the laundry, or raking leaves with the family. “Wow, you worked hard on that, good for you! or “What a help, You are good at loading the dishes!” When kids apply themselves, feel supported and genuinely encouraged, they feel like they are contributing. That feels good. This process becomes ingrained and impacts their school work, sports, and community. It’s never too early or too late to start teaching them. You can absolutely do it!
