How a parent brings up his children really matters a lot. We are living at a time when your future life depends on on how you make it from youthful stage. The worst thing is that we are at a time when the young people are gradually loosing focus in life. Most have been lured into the habit of drug abuse making them not to think about how to progress in life. It's something that has made most parents to give up on them because they appear to have lost control in life. No, this should not be the way. If you are a parent, you need to save the future of your son by telling him these things.
1. Teach him to focus on chasing money instead of girls and drugs
This is something that most parents fear to talk about claiming it is bad manners. Our fear to address it openly has made the current generation to worsen every other day. As a parent, you need to advise your son that if he wants to be successful in future and enjoy life, then he should maximize on chasing money, ladies will come later.
2. Teach him on how to become independent
As a parent, you need to train your son on how to become independent at an early age. Don't spoon feed him until he fails to know that he need to find a life before it's too late. You can always start business for him and tell him that he should start paying bills from the profits.
3. Ask him his future plans, passion and ambitions then figure out on how to help him
Opportunities lie in our hobbies, passion, future plans and ambitions. This is the only thing that can easily change our lives provided we are serious. The challenge is always finding someone who can promote your dreams. As a parent, you need to know what your son likes doing and what he is planning. Promoting his dreams is the best favour you can give him.
4. Never praise him when he does the wrong thing, infact punish him
This is something that is gradually fading away with the current generation. We are at a time where parents will smile with their children even if he does the wrong thing. This is something that we need to stop at hit them by the truth so that we bring up disciplined men.
5. Always remind him to work harder and smarter every other day
Most parents fear talking about this if they are not rich because they feel discouraged. As a parent, you need to keep motivating and inspiring your son to work hard until it becomes his motto.
