Teaching Kids Consistency

Consistency is something that I am good at – but only from time to time. I struggle with being consistent from one day to the next. When I’m on then things are great but when I’m off it is then that I can’t seem to get anything right. I am still learning.

My goal is to begin teaching my children consistency now so that it becomes a natural part of their lives. I know that if I slack in my bringing them up then they may end up facing the same struggles that I face in their own futures.

Steps for Teaching Consistency
2. Do more. The truth is that children learn more from example than they ever will from words. Your consistent walk will teach your children to walk with consistency. Stay on your own schedule as well.

3. Expect more. They may be children but they are capable of more then you might ever dream – so start expecting. Let them know that you can see their potential and then encourage them daily to reach for that potential.

Consistency is a habit that must be practiced on a daily basis. Breaking the routine and pattern is one of the quickest ways to break the consistency. Stick to the schedule, do and expect more and you will soon find your whole family is more consistent in all that they do.

    Good post Kathyrn. My wife and I will be having our first child in November.. and this is both useful and practical advice in raising up a consistent behaving kid (especially when they hit that toddler stage)!
