Good Friday Morning, Friends! My Soul Intention: Doing for your children what they can do for themselves raises a generation of entitled adults. Raising successful children begins with how parents parent. Giving in to tantrums when they’re young turns into being manipulated with their angry outbursts when they’re grown. Giving them an allowance for existing turns into supporting them when they’re grown. Raise your children to become adults you’d love to hire and work with. A strong work ethic begins at home.
