Any thing else is beyond your control and therefore should be less of a concern. This is equally important whether you are dealing with people, events or objectives.

Whatever happens in life (good, or bad), how you react is what will ultimately determine how successful you are and how happy and fulfilling your life is. After all it IS your life and nobody else’s![/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner][vc_custom_heading text=”so how to teach our kids?” font_container=”tag:h4|text_align:left|color:%23ce879f” google_fonts=”font_family:Oswald%3A300%2Cregular%2C700|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal”][vc_column_text]For younger kids you can make a list of things on a piece of paper, point to each and then ask your kids to tell you what is in their control and what isn’t.

For older kids (and younger ones too) it’s important to keep praising them for their efforts and behaviour. It’s tricky, especially when we want to build their self-esteem and the natural inclination is to praise their achievements, no matter how small.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_custom_heading text=”the daily lifehack summary” font_container=”tag:h4|text_align:left|color:%23ce879f” google_fonts=”font_family:Oswald%3A300%2Cregular%2C700|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1468005017435{border-top-width: 3px !important;border-right-width: 3px !important;border-bottom-width: 3px !important;border-left-width: 3px !important;padding-top: 40px !important;padding-right: 40px !important;padding-bottom: 40px !important;padding-left: 40px !important;background-color: #ce879f !important;border-left-color: #58646d !important;border-left-style: solid !important;border-right-color: #58646d !important;border-right-style: solid !important;border-top-color: #58646d !important;border-top-style: solid !important;border-bottom-color: #58646d !important;border-bottom-style: solid !important;}”]

Teach your kids to focus on what they can control:

Exercise 1:  For younger kids get them to point out (or tell you) what is in their control and what isn’t.
Exercise 2: For all ages- praise efforts and behaviour (not outcomes).
