We talk about personal responsibility as well as Kathy Caprino’s blog titled “7 Crippling Parenting Behaviors That Keep Children From Growing Into Leaders”  A link to the blog is listed under “resources” below.  The 7 beahaviors are:

1. We don’t let our children experience risk

2. We rescue too quickly

3. We rave too easily

4. We let guilt get in the way of leading well

5. We don’t share our past mistakes

6. We mistake intelligence, giftedness and influence for maturity

7. We don’t practice what we preach

We also answer a listener’s question on how to not feel like a drill sargeant when she’s getting her kids ready for school.
