“Get-Good-Kids-Quick” Schemes Don’t Work

Most of us have realized by now, there are NO “get-rich-quick” schemes that work.  The basic philosophy of these schemes promise high rates of return with little or no investment of your time and or resources.  If you know anyone who is truly successful in business just ask them how it happened.  More than likely you will discover this individual has been implementing winning habits over a long period of time and their success did not happen over night.

The same applies with parenting. There are NO “get-good-kids-quick” schemes!  Good kids don’t happen overnight.  You will not become an overnight parenting success because of one talk you had with your child.  Just because you applied one instance of discipline, don’t think they have it all figured out.  There is no magic pep talk or magic strategy.  Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.  Successful parenting happens when you make small deposits in your children over a long period of time.  The good news is that it is never too late to start applying this philosophy.

Thrive in parenting, don’t just survive!  There is NO greater calling or investment you can make 🙂
