As we look at the concept of being self-evaluators and leading our children to do the same, there are several habits and practices we talked about building in to our lives:
- Regular heart checks. We need to push beyond behavior and help young people evaluate their relational and spiritual development.
- Evaluate wins and losses. Take the time to sit down and evaluate the ups and downs of life together.
- State your boundaries and stick to them. Help your children learn to follow the agreed upon structure.
- Help them craft their future and work backwards. This can include career but should also include relationships, spiritual life, character, emotional health, etc.
Remember to take courage, let them experience life, and then help them evaluate it. Until next time, Be Abnormal!
