Health Tip: Teach Children About Responsibility

Make sure your expectations are understood
HealthDay News) -- Having a keen sense of responsibility will help a person throughout life, and that responsibility should begin during childhood, experts say.
The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests how parents should teach children about responsibility:
When you assign your child tasks, make sure you clearly explain what's expected, and keep it consistent. To keep your child motivated, offer plenty of positive reinforcement and praise. Stick to a consistent family routine and structure. Hold family meetings each week to go over your child's progress. Find a discipline method that works well when your child doesn't complete responsibilities.
