10 Pieces of Advice from Parents of Successful Kids

August 8, 2019

Raising kids isn’t for the faint of heart. You want to provide your children with the best in life. It can be hard to balance that along with a desire to equip them with the skills they’ll need to succeed. Here are 10 suggestions from parents that got the job done and done right.


Educate Yourself

Pursuing higher levels of education can provide a good example for your child. If you want to lead by example, then getting a higher education degree can help you raise a go-getter.

Stay Fit

Success is nothing without health. You want to build a good foundation for your child and that includes being healthy and fit to handle anything. If you’re finding it hard to lose weight, then hire a life coach to help you.

Form Good Relationships

Successful people know how to deal with people. That’s a skill you’ll want your child to learn from you. Have poor people skills? Improve them by getting much-needed assistance from a relationship coach.

Bond with Them

You want to be a role model for your kids. But how will they learn from you if you don’t spend any time bonding with them? Set aside time for your children to help them develop the right values, attitude, and mindset.

Teach Them Problem Solving

Kids get frustrated when something doesn’t go their way. Teach them how to solve problems so they can develop solutions instead of moping over their problems.

Talk About Feelings

Raise a child who knows how to accept and recognize feelings. It’s all right to be sad or upset. Teach them to accept what they feel but to move on and find ways to improve the situation.

Take a Deep Breath

If you’re stressed, your kids are going to pick up on that. Learn to unwind. If the stress is getting to you, get help. Hire a lifestyle coach to help you find better ways of managing stress.

Praise Them the Right Way

Encourage your child to develop a growth mindset. Praise them in a way that would allow them to develop good habits like critical thinking or knowing the importance of effort and hard work instead of just focusing on the results.

Make Them Do Chores

Kids with responsibilities learn to be accountable for their actions. That helps prepare them for success when they grow up.

Teach Them Resilience

The only way they’ll learn to cope is to undergo failure. Let them fail but teach them to get back up again. Improve yourself so you can help your kids. For a life coach, reach out to Hundred Life Design.
