Second, help them develop a sense of responsibility for their actions. Teach them how to accept and handle mistakes and defeats as challenges.


Third, teach them problem-solving skills, as well as decision-making skills. Let them get involve in simple decisions at home.

Every parent can devise her own way on how to mold a child to be a strong adult. Strategies  based on culture, religion or tradition is alright, only just make sure that you’re doing it right for it will greatly affect the child’s life.
