Every child has his own interests. As a parent, you should let your child follow the path that leads him to the field where his interests lie. If you are entrepreneur, your ultimate vision of success will be seeing your child join the journey of entrepreneurship. But how do you lead your kids in the right entrepreneurial direction? Here are a few tips to help you along the way –
1) Make them pay for the things that they want
Make your children work for the things that they want to buy. You can give them chores such as do the laundry or do the dishes and reward them for the same. If your child wants to buy something simply ask him to save up for it and then spend wisely. If he works for the money he will spend it wisely and will make sure that he’s spending on the things that he really wants.
2) Show them what you do in your business
If you show your children what you do in your business they are most likely to understand it and learn from it. They will see that there is a value exchange for money and it doesn’t grow on trees. They will start valuing money as well and will take care of how they spend it.
3) Discover what they love and help them build a business around it
As a parent you should supply your child with ample opportunities and guidance. It is your responsibility to find out where their interests lie. Once you find out what they love, leverage it to build their interest in business.
4) Find a way to make them a part of your business
If you want your child to have a business of their own you need to start by making them a part of your business. Take them to your office along with you for a few hours! Even if you lose a little personal productivity it will be worth because you’ll end up spending quality time with your child.
Hopefully these tips mentioned above will help you encourage entrepreneurship in your children!
