As parents we influence many aspects of our children’s lives. Our own moral values shape what we want our children to believe in and adopt in their own lives.
A strong moral compass will be the foundation for good decision making as our little ones enter adolescence.
In Planting My Values I talk about some of the values that I believe children should conquer on their journeys of self-discovery.
In todays fast-paced society we sometimes fall short in the category of promoting youth values. Our children are obsessed with technology. This is wonderful yet can be challenging to parents. We are busy, rushed, stressed. Often we don’t understand the technology that is driving our young ones.
Lets get back to the basics. Our children are our future. A strong value system will help our little ones as they maneuver the world as it is today. Fast and furious- connected yet disconnected. Help your children acquire the value system that you want them to have.
The book will touch on these core values:
Invite your little ones to have a voice! Let me know what values you feel are important to instill in your children?
I want to share my background so you can get to know me better. I went to business school and received an MBA from the University of Minnesota. I worked for Apple Computer for 10 years. Then I had children – four within six years. Life got extremely busy.
My new job was raising my children. No corporate job can prepare you for this! I took the skills I learned from business school and became the CEO of a family of six!
Along with this was my desire to instill a strong foundation for my children. As much as we want to give we want our children to have a solid foundation throughout life. We want them to contribute in a responsible manner.
Whether our children are 5 or 15 we want them to make good decisions, learn from their mistakes and become better citizens of our world.
Planting My Values will help our young ones as they begin their self discovery and journey to being the best they can be!
