Responsibility is a serious matter. Making your child responsible means giving him/her a place in their own life. Now if you see it from children’s perspective, they treat it as you present it to them. Say, you are telling your five-year-old to clean the popcorns from the sofa, how would you do that? Maybe you clean it for him/her, or you scold him for doing so but none these will make him responsible. Because scolding won’t teach them the importance of cleanliness instead they would see it as a mistake.

Therefore, what you have to do is, encourage him to clear the mess by himself or even you could lend a hand. That would both give them the essence of the responsibility and a healthy parent-children partnership.

In this article, we are going to discuss this topic in some parts.

Having Discussions With Kids

Having discussions with kids will drive their minds in two ways. First of all, they would think that they are mature enough to have an opinion about some matters. Well, I am sure you are not going to discuss politics or economics with your little child. It should be some interesting topics that can excite your child.

Secondly, when your relationship grows stronger with your children they would feel some responsibilities. This is because your previous discussions would leave some effects on them. It is far better than those age-old morality fables, practical matters help to build a positive mindset.

Consequently, following this method can make your little one a responsible child because they’ll start understanding their roles to play in this big world.

Learning From Mistakes

If you teach your children to learn from their mistakes, they will not fear making mistakes but they would understand why is it a mistake. Difficult to understand? Let me simplify. Suppose your child kept the water tap running, instead of shouting at them tell them how precious water is. Explain the process of the water cycle, how people in dry places suffer from water-crisis and travel miles just to get water.

In this way, not only he/she would develop a consciousness about nature but also become a responsible child. Follow this method and I’m sure you’ll see serious developments in your child’s behavior and mentality.

Creativity

Your child will only be responsible when you nurture his/her cognitive mind carefully. Introduce them to children’s literature, renowned children movies that make them think. Let them cross all the barriers of reasons and debates, there is a world of fun across the boundary where new ideas born.

Now you might be thinking, what that has to do with a responsible child? Well, you may want them to be responsible but they are still children and sometimes they completely refuse to accept the real world. Therefore, you have to communicate with them in their language, don’t force them to understand you instead you try to understand them. Try to learn what they find to be so interesting and you may start talking to them in their code.

The best way is to give them someplace to display their creativity and their thought process. Just give them a color paper to draw cartoons, characters they love, imaginary dialogues with their favorite superheroes. Maybe ask them to draw how they want to change the world, or if they had some sort of superpower, what would they do with them. These visual thoughts would effectively teach them life lessons.

Nevertheless, none of these processes will work if you are acting like a hypocrite. Make sure you follow those methods before teaching it to your kids.

Lastly, parenting is a sensitive job and if you are not 100% dedicated to your child, you won’t be able to teach them any good lessons.
