1. Make them do chores.

1. Make them do chores.

Make your kids do chores. They might not love the idea to start with, but research has proven that kids who did self-care and other-care chores were in fact more likely to exhibit better academic performances and problem-solving skills.

2. Teach them to be polite.

2. Teach them to be polite.

Teaching kids to say "please" when they ask for something can reinforce their tendency to be polite, which makes them more persuasive when they're older. Teaching them to say "thank you" habitually encourages gratitude, which stimulates happiness and makes stress easier to deal with.

And teaching them to say "you're welcome" reinforces confidence by emphasizing that the things they do for others are worthy of thanks. (This is especially true when you juxtapose "you're welcome" with other things people say in response to "thank you," like "no worries!" or "no problem!")

3. Work on their emotional intelligence.

3. Work on their emotional intelligence.

Children who develop emotional intelligence also develop a higher chance of graduating, getting a good job, and just being happy.

There are many things you can do to develop emotional intelligence, but at the outset, model your good thinking and use of emotions for them, ask them for their ideas, and try not to judge.

Oh, and remember that kids are just that: kids. It's unfair often to expect them to react and respond to things like adults would (or at least, should!).

4. Steer them toward video games.

4. Steer them toward video games.

Wait, what? Tell them to play video games?

Yes, indeed. A new study out of Europe that used a "massive" amount of data determined that kids who spend an above-average amount of time playing them wind up with higher IQs than kids who spend their screen time watching videos or scrolling through social media.

Kids today spent a massive amount of time glued to screens, on average. This study of 5,000 children at least suggests that if they're going to be using screens that much, the higher the percentage of that time they spend on video games, the better.

5. Help them figure out their passion(s).

5. Help them figure out their passion(s).

Passion is predictive of whether kids are successful; while mindset and grit might help young people to continue attempting to succeed, it was passion that best predicted whether they actually would.

So, when kids are kids, let them explore different things to determine the ones that they're truly passionate about. That's where they're most likely to become the absolute best in their field.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
