Whats Wrong With Your Current Response

How do you typically respond to your child's irresponsible actions? For instance, what was the last occasion your kid was irresponsible? Mentally photograph the irresponsible action. Now focus the image on you.What was your response? For instance, did you let him get away with it, or did you hold him accountable? Did you make an excuse for him, or make him apologize? Did you step in and do his assignment or job for him? Do any of these other parental responses to irresponsible attitudes fit you:

□ Rescuer. You come to your kid's aid, and solve his quandaries for him.

□ Doer. You find yourself doing or finishing most of your kid's responsibilities.

□ Excuser. You make excuses for your kid's lack of follow-through or bad attitude.

□ Overexpecter. You put too high or unrealistic expectations on your kid.

□ Low expectations. You minimize the number of expectations you place on your kid.

□ Enabler. You try to make things as easy as possible for your kid.

□ Reminder. You always remind your kid of his assignments, jobs, and schedule.

What is the one thing you have tried time after time that you should never do again?
