When Commitments Don’t Mean Anything

This is a follow up to Parenting Mistake – Renegotiating.

One of the problems with constantly allowing kids to renegotiate rules is that they ultimately take away from the experience that rules don’t really mean anything and that there is no reason to stick to commitments that are made.

Isn’t it amazing how lessons kids learn have lifelong ramifications? Think of how this exact problem plays out in international treaties all the time. If one country doesn’t stick to a commitment it has made in an agreement and wants to renegotiate it constantly, how will the world view that country?

If kids don’t learn to follow through on their promises, what kind of preparation is that for their adult personal lives and their adult work lives?

Get your kids to behave now and get them on the right course in life.
