Yes, it's true!

You'll probably have to read this article a couple of times to really come to grips with what's being said.

What's even more shocking is that at the end of the article you can see that in other places even balls have been banned from schools.

On the surface, this might seem like no big deal "It's just cartwheels and balls, who really cares?" But, there is something much bigger happening under the surface and that 'much bigger' is the development of self-responsibility.

As Dr. Nathaniel Branden taught us, the practice of Self-Responsibility is a pillar for creating high self-esteem in your child. It's a way of helping your child realize that their actions have real consequences to their life and if they fail to accept responsibility for things they did; they might be stuck in an awful life.

The purpose of this podcast is to discuss the proper development of self-responsibility in children, how we completely agree that as a parent it's very likely one of your goals (or should be) and how you can facilitate the development of responsibility in your child.

Here Is What We Covered

  • The 6 Pillars Of Self-Esteem, specifically the Practice of Self-Responsibility.
  • Why letting kids fail (in this case get hurt, or maybe even injured) is central and pivotal to the development of adults, and why bypassing this responsibility will create nothing but older children who are unable to manage the stress of adulthood.
  • Why it's important to remember that the flip side of risk is reward and every time we limit what our children can (or should be able to do) we are in fact limiting a potential reward they could be experiencing. Is it worth it?
