I want my children to be well-prepared for life – a holistic view of life – prepared emotionally and socially, prepared academically and with wisdom, prepared spiritually and with discernment for their life purposes, prepared physically with healthy habits. I want my kids to be prepared. Do you agree? That preparation doesn’t begin when they’re 16, it begins from a very early age. We’re going to talk about all of this in our new series Preparing My Child to SOAR beyond the nest. The conversation begins this week in episode 107.
"Holistic" from the Greek root "Holo" meaning "Whole." Let's equip our kids through a WHOLE PERSON LIFESTYLE.
Four Steps for Moms to Equip Your Kids with a Whole Person Lifestyle
1. Parents model self-evaluation and growth in these four areas of life. The goal is growth, NOT perfection.
2. Continually seek to create and maintain a home environment that focuses on developing these four areas of life as a family. (Listen to episode 14)
3. In upper elementary or middle school, begin equipping your children to self-evaluate & set goals in these areas as well. (Listen to episode 107)
4. Throughout their lives, from young to old, be their biggest cheerleader in their pursuit of holistic living.
