Today Jeff and Mat finish up their discussion on the last parenting task, Accountability. Part of the task of teaching your children to choose to be accountable is helping them to find their talents and abilities and helping them do something worthwhile with those talents and abilities. The accountability part in that process is helping kids learn to follow through is critical to their development. You have to earn your own way in this world and many youth today have an attitude of entitlement. Teaching kids accountability teaches them that privilidges in life are earned.
The last piece of accountability is giving and getting feedback. Jeff talks about the importance of creating feedback loops with your children. He also discusses the importance of balancing feedback with the other 3 parenting tasks, Connecting, Empowering, and Creating Order.
