Parents can only inspire their children, or anyone for that matter, when they’re happy first. Parents can’t force children to be happy, they must show them how to be happy. Setting a good example when they are young sets them up for better choices when they are older. By letting your teen make decisions on how they live and in their environment and surroundings, you help prepare them for life’s bigger choices and decisions by tapping into how they feel. You also help set up a life-long habit of following through on their responsibilities. Just remember It starts with you first.
