Setting The Example
Just like many areas of parenting, building teamwork in the family has to be shown by example. Children seem to learn best by watching a principle lived out. Do they see us work with our spouse as a team, a united front or can they divide us? Jump in to help anytime you can. Look for ways to serve each other, your children and others outside the family. We have to live out being “others centered” in order to instill this in our children. Being others centered rather then self centered is essential to building any team. Make sure you are taking the time to live out what it means to be a team in front of your children.
