Raising Children To Be Independent and Self-Reliant
Build a Sense of Achievement and Independence. One of your most important goals as a parent is to raise children who become independent and self-reliant people. Certainly, in early development, your children count on you. As infants, they rely on you for nourishment, cleaning, and mobility. And your children grow, they become more independent in these basic areas of living but still depend on you for love, protection, guidance, and support. As your children reach adolescence and move toward adulthood, they become less reliant on you and gain greater independence in all aspects of their lives.
