Do you let your children make their own choices?
Creative parenting expert, Nikki Bush, says it is very important for parents to teach children how to make choices from an early age.
She says making choices helps children learn to take responsibility for their actions.
We talking about little things like hanging out towels, packing their bags for schools ....— Nikki Bush - Parenting expert
A lot of the reasons why children don't do what they are asked to do is because we either nag too much or we don't follow through with the consequences.
Bush speaks about the importance of empowering children while giving them limits and boundaries to be able to make their own choices.
She gives an example of a child who raids the cooky jar just before bed time. Your response should be 'you can have one biscuit or put them all back in the jar', "it's your choice".
