Parenting quote by Benjamin Franklin

So true!

“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” This good parenting quote is Benjamin Franklin’s adaptation of an old Chinese proverb and is a valuable advice for all parents. Whether your child is a toddler, a preschooler, elementary, middle, or high school aged child, don’t underestimate the importance of involving your child in daily chores, food shopping and meal preparation, crafts, science projects, decision making, etc. Learning is a direct result of experience and trying things on your own. Hands-on experience sparks curiosity, builds confidence, makes children feel good about themselves and helps them develop “I can” attitude. Involving children in new tasks may require a lot of patience, but every time you let them complete a task on their own, kids learn and get better at it. If your goal is to raise a curious, smart, and self-sufficient adult, make time to involve your children. Five or ten years from now, you will be glad you did.
