“Teaching Kids to Count is Fine, But Teaching Them What Counts is Best.”

โฃ
Parents, our children get more from us than just our genetics! They get their values and priorities, which are taught from us. โฃ
โฃ
We have to show them what to prioritize with our actions and words. And although this seems like it would come naturally, it is much easier said than done.
โฃ
While things like academics, chores, and other responsibilities have their place at the top of the list, we also want to ensure that they prioritize those things that are external and intangible; hobbies, sports, passions. Things that excite them! โฃ
โฃ
We want our children to be happy. That is what counts! I want you to ask yourself, what excites your children? And how can you make it more of a priority in their lives? Drop a ๐Ÿ’™ in the comments below if you can relate!
