It is the question we ask ourselves once a week, once a day, or even multiple times a day. Should I quit or should I still do this. With kids this can be a big deal and can have a lifetime impression on them.
If you try your hardest and give everything before you quit something then your kids will do the same. If you refuse to give up then your kids will follow in your steps.
But if you give up early and easy then your kids will learn it is ok to do this as well. This includes doing school work or helping out some of their friends. Another thing to think about is if their friends do this. They could feel peer pressure from them to quit early.
You will need to teach them if everyone else gives up doesn’t mean they should follow them. I’m not saying every kid that quits something is a bad thing. It depends on that they are doing and if it is a good idea in the first place.
Just teach your kids to give it their all and do their best on stuff that is good for them and the community. Helping someone do yard work that is hard can have its reward as well? They will feel good for doing it and they will be looked at as a hard worker to everyone around them.
To me it is also a good thing to teach them if something goes wrong with their health as well. To never give up that it will be fixed or they can overcome the disability it might cause.
Have you remembered a time when you quit something and now regret it? What was your best way to teach this to your kids or the best way you learned this life lesson? Feel free to leave your answer in the comments and I will respond to the questions you have.
