ABSTRACT
The article provides suggestions for parents to help a child take responsibility for his actions. With young children, one always needs to accentuate the positive in order to build their self-confidence. Nobody likes to feel criticized, guilty, or ashamed, but if one has enough self-confidence, one can admit to a certain amount of imperfection, especially if criticism is given gently and in a loving and supportive context. In order for a young child to manage his behavior, he must first must acknowledge that his actions are, in fact, his actions. To make a child responsible for his actions, the parents should empower their child. The child needs to be complimented each time he makes a wise choice for his actions.
