“The structure and routine you provide for your child reduces anxiety and stress. This is especially relevant relating to new experiences. You also recognize that your child may have their own systems. You help them refine, discovering what works best for them.”
Do you have DISCIPLINE?
- You can break down big tasks
- Your ease with efficiency
- Your attention to detail
- Your ability to maintain a routine or schedule
- Am I too rigid with others?
- Am I willing to be flexible when necessary?
- Am I too hard on others with their inattention to detail?
- Am I unwilling to change?
Children need routine and boundaries. You are naturally gifted to do this. Your children know how to tackle the big tasks because you break them down into easy, manageable steps. You consistently model how to work smarter, not harder; this helps them immensely in school and in life. While not every child may easily fall into a routine, the limits you set help them feel safe. Be mindful that what organized looks like to you, might look very different for them. Respecting their way of creating routine and organization allows them to express themselves in the way they feel most comfortable. Also, remember that often the outcome is more important than the “how”. Step back and ensure that your child is able to grow by thinking through the process for themselves. This will give them higher confidence in their abilities for the future.
