Practice Making Decisions

Children Need Practice Making Decisions

If the outcome we hope for in raising our children is that some day they will be responsible adults who make wise decisions... then they will need practice. If they get a good deal of practice while they are little along with some practice in experiencing the consequences of their decisions, then the likelihood that they will make good decisions as adults increases dramatically.

That sounds great but....parents can gum it all up by NOT

1. Giving children enough practice in making decisions
     
     or

2. Preventing a child from experiencing the consequences of their decisions.
