Good parenting skills can prepare children well

2017-06-22 06:00

I am concerned of the values we place on materialism as parents.

We have forgotten about life values that we need to instil in our children in order to shape them to be better people in life.

Materialistic parenting can lead to kids facing certain difficulties later in life. Given, parenting can be challenging, but can also be very rewarding.

The most important gift to your children is teaching them appreciation and gratitude.
