3 Ways to Help Your Children Grow into Leaders

As a parent, it’s your job to not only feed and clothe your child but also to teach them other crucial life skills that will help them in the future. For example, your child relies entirely on you to teach them good leadership skills. This is a huge responsibility, but with the right knowledge you can raise a healthy, happy kid with great leadership skills that will put them on the right path. NieCat Life Coaching shares some resources that will help you.


Set a Good Example

One of the best ways you can teach your child is through example. Be a good leader, and your children will learn how to lead.

Build Your Child’s Self-Confidence

In order to be a leader, your child needs to be confident. This will help them feel like their ideas are valid.

Give Them Leadership Opportunities

It’s important for children to have positive leadership experiences, like showing leadership through volunteering or participating in sports.

  • Get involved with programs, like those available through the YMCA.
  • Let them make decisions, such as what clothes they want to wear or what they’d like to eat for breakfast.
  • Once they are old enough, they can participate in volunteer activities at the local senior center or animal shelter.
  • If your child is interested, getting involved in sports could help them stretch their leadership muscles.
  • If sports aren’t their thing, make sure they’re getting lots of exercise with regular walks.

Help Your Child Become a Great Leader

Teaching your child leadership skills will put them on the right track for future success. It will also give them more self-esteem and communication skills. Leadership is an important skill for even if your child doesn’t plan on being a manager or city council member. Be a good leader yourself, encourage your child’s passions, and help them have positive leadership experiences, and you’ll help them put their best foot forward in the future.

Rekindling Your Passion for Life in the Midst of a Mid-Life Crisis

A mid-life crisis can be an overwhelming experience. You may feel stuck in your current life, with no idea of how to move forward. But don’t despair! There are plenty of ways to find inspiration and positivity during this time.

Make Healthy Changes

Your physical health is the foundation for all other aspects of your life. Taking steps to improve your physical health can help you feel more energized and motivated in other areas of your life. Consider joining a gym or taking up a new sport, eating healthier meals, getting enough sleep, and incorporating mindfulness into your daily routine.

Travel

Sometimes all it takes is getting away from everyday life to gain clarity on what we truly want out of our lives. Traveling can be expensive, but there are plenty of ways to save money while still having an amazing experience. Consider looking into budget airlines or staying at hostels instead of hotels if cost is an issue for you.

Reconnect With Old Friends

Mid-life crises can often leave us feeling lonely and isolated from our peers. Thankfully, there are helpful platforms that make it easier for people who have lost touch over the years to reconnect with one another. It’s always nice being able to catch up with old friends, after all.

Pursue a Better Career

If you’re feeling unfulfilled in your current job, it might be time to look for something new. Use free online tools to create an eye-catching resume that will make you stand out when applying for jobs. These tools are often easy-to-use and provide plenty of customization options so that you can create the perfect resume in no time.

Start Gardening

Gardening is a great way to connect with nature and find peace during times of stress or uncertainty. If you’ve never gardened before, there are plenty of reviews and tips available online to help get you started. From selecting the right plants for your climate to creating the perfect garden layout — these resources will help make sure your garden is off to a great start.

Volunteer

Volunteering is an amazing way to give back, develop new skills, and make a lasting impact on the lives of others. It can also be a great way to gain experience and jumpstart your career. There are many organizations out there that need volunteers, so take some time to research different opportunities near you. Whether it’s online or in person, you can find the perfect fit for you that allows you to do something meaningful with your time.

Explore Entrepreneurship

Starting a business is no easy task. Careful consideration should be taken in regard to creating detailed business plans and marketing strategies and researching potential customer bases. Legalities should also be considered, and registering your business through an online formation service could prove beneficial. With the correct groundwork, entrepreneurship can offer many pathways to success.

There are plenty of ways to approach and live through a mid-life crisis. Update your resume for the chance to explore better job opportunities, use helpful platforms to rekindle old friendships, and even consider entrepreneurship — all these activities offer unique and inspiring paths during this transitional period.

You Are Your Child’s First and Best Role Model

You are your child First and BEST Roll Model

Children learn from their parents how to make good life choices. Children may not always have the capacity for self-reflection and the ability to think about long-term consequences, which often makes it difficult for them to make wise decisions on their own. Parents should be available during this process and provide them with a platform where they can ask questions and get answers when they need them most. Read on for some tips and suggestions from NieCat Life Coaching.

Diet and Exercise  

Nemours KidsHealth notes that the dinner table is where children learn the dietary habits that can last a lifetime. Making healthy food choices for yourself and for them while they are young instills not only a sense of what a proper diet is, but they’ll learn to enjoy those foods if they’re introduced to them at an early age. Make certain both you and they have access to fruits and vegetables for snacking and avoid keeping sodas and chips in the house. You can reserve those for special occasions like parties but keep the healthy stuff on the table then too, to provide a good balance. 

Exercising with your children can be fun for you both. Family bicycling is something everyone can look forward to. Wearing helmets is a must for everyone as well as reflective clothing if you’ll be cycling past sundown. Walking and hiking are other fun activities everyone can do together, especially if it’s punctuated with a picnic

At Home

Keeping your home clean and clutter-free works for you and them. The Pragmatic Parent points out that teaching your children to put things away when they’re done with them means your home, including their rooms, can stay neat and tidy. A home filled with clutter causes stress and bad energy in the home, which means a lot of whining and complaining. Giving kids chores teaches them responsibility and accountability and if they get paid for some of those duties, it’s an opportunity for them to learn about savings, spending wisely, and delayed gratification. 

Scheduling homework time, playtime, and chores is a chance for them to learn time management, too. Kids can get stressed and overwhelmed if they’re not guided throughout their day since it takes time and maturity to learn how to best manage their activities. A printed schedule that is color coded in a place they visit often, like the refrigerator, can be helpful as well as a clock or an alarm clock that they can read. 

Education, Including Getting an Online Degree

It’s never too early to talk with your children about what they want to achieve in the future. Having a goal, even if it’s one they’ll change often, instills in them the idea of putting the work in now~education~means having the dream job they long for later on. 

Family trips to the library help them learn to appreciate books and all the other services a library offers. Encourage them to check out books about famous people who have done or are doing the job they hope to one day make their career. 

If you’ve been putting off getting a degree, pursuing an online degree gives you the flexibility to pursue your dream while fulfilling other responsibilities. For example, a BSED opens the door for opportunities to work with preschoolers and elementary-aged children. With the ability to learn at your own pace, online coursework allows you to work toward your goals while still taking care of your work and life responsibilities. Best of all, by seeking higher education, your children will benefit from the example you set. 

We hope you’ll adopt a few if not all of the above tips to be the best role model for your kids including living a healthy lifestyle, having a productive and stress-free home, and furthering your education, whether that’s through traditional channels or the online route. Children need guidance, but they also need to be left with a lot of freedom to find out what works best for them. This can only happen when we let them make their own choices while guiding them at the same time.
