There is one important thing for children on facing their future. It is leadership. Every child has a chance to be a leader. That depends on how the parents treat their children at home.

There is a simple thing that we could start doing in your parenting. Give a simple lesson on daily activities, such as talking honest. This is simple but not easy to do. Remember, our children is a ‘copy cat’. They will copy our manner and behavior. So, if want our child honest, we should do the same.

For example, when we eat two cookies, say it frankly to our child. On the other situation, when our children have a problem with school friends. Ask them what the problem is, listen carefully and see the problem objectively. Try to give some questions to your child, what makes her/ him uncomfortable. Let your child think before you judge who’s on the wrong side. Give them some advise without blaming them. So, your children will learn something about it and can make a decision by their own way.

That is a simple way to start the leadership in our children personality. Sooner or later, our children will get used to solve their problems. But parents must always be the one in the neutral position. We should guide our children way of thinking to the right one. The children who have a good communication with their parents will effect to their progress in school, especially in making friends. Parents must see what kind of type is their children. Is it leader or just a follower?

If our child always decides many things by their own decision, expressed their feelings honestly, and has more self confidence, so their are good in leadership. Their friends would always choose her/him to be a leader in a group . But when your child seems like a shame girl/boy, silent, and afraid to show what their feelings, so their would be just a follower at school. In that case, parents should fix the communication to their child.

Communication eye-to-eye is a very important thing to do to make our children more comfortable and build the bonding love between parents and children. Honesty is the main thing we should have in building the great leadership to our children. They will be the next leader of our country. It is our great duty to build their character.
