How to Raise Responsible Kids: Tips for Every Age – 087

Isn’t every parent’s goal to raise happy, well-adjusted, and, yes, responsible kids who can find success in life? Even comedienne, Phyllis Diller said, “I want my children to have all the things I couldn’t afford…then I want to move in with them.” We may not want to live with them, but we do want them to be able to build a life for themselves. In this episode, single boy mom Julie Graham asks all these questions and more of Darlene Brock, who literally wrote the book on raising great girls. They discuss some of the practical applications for every age. From the chores a child can do when they are little to ideas on how to increase the responsibility as they make their way toward high school. Put your feet up, get some coffee, and take notes as you listen to this one, you’ll be glad you did!
