3 Things Parents Teach Kids For Success

Successful kids are the ones who have an intelligent mind! But did you know that their parents influence them and impact their way of thinking?
According to psychologists, successful kids are the biggest treasure for each family member.
In case you want to know more about their personality, scroll down and understand.

Which Are 3 Things Parents Teach Kids For Success?

1. DEVELOP EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE

Decades of research show that emotional intelligence is as critical to success– if not more so – than cognitive intelligence. Per a study conducted by TalentSmart, emotional intelligence (‘E.I.’) is the most reliable predictor of performance, blowing past I.Q. and personality.

E.I is the foundation of the following skills:

– assertiveness

– accountability

– anger management

– change tolerance

– customer service

– communication

– decision-making

– empathy

– flexibility

– trust

– teamwork

– social skills

– stress tolerance

The most important thing a parent can do to cultivate a child’s emotional intelligence is to model good behavior and E.I.-related traits.

2. LEARN HOW TO GIVE PRAISE EFFECTIVELY

Continually praising a child for their innate gifts, like intelligence, makes it less likely that they will apply said gifts to bettering themselves. (They know they’re smart!)

Carol Dweck, professor of psychology at Stanford University, examined the difference between a growth mindset and a fixed mindset. She discovered that praising children for developing novel approaches to solving problems, even when unsuccessful, teaches them the importance of seeing things through, giving effort, and realizing their intentions.

3. GIVE THEM OUTSIDE PLAY TIME

The booming tech age is both exciting and novel. But the increasing reliance (addiction?) resulting from overuse of technology is troubling. There is perhaps nothing more disturbing than the child who comes home from school and spends the rest of their evening on an iPad, cell phone, or computer.

Research shows that overusing technology hampers a child’s social skill development, encourages a sedentary lifestyle, and inhibits a child’s academic growth.

When they want to go to a friend’s house, let them. If there’s space in front of your home, your kid should be spending at least an hour or two outside per day.
