      The Transferability Of Our Influence At Home

                      The attitudes and attributes that make a good employee are the same attitudes and attributes that make a good kid. A child who can learn to do chores cheerfully stands a better chance of becoming an employee who performs work with a good attitude. A child who has been taught to value honesty will be an employee to be trusted. A child who has been trained in good work and study habits at home will transfer those skills to the workplace. In addition, while children may study some problem solving theory in middle school, they learn the real art of this at home in performing family service, working out sibling disputes, planning personal finances, and negotiating a host of other everyday activities.

                     What about the skills one needs to bring to marriage? Openness, honesty, the ability to communicate and solve problems, the ability to withstand stress—these are just a few. All of these relationship skills are practiced and honed at home, in relationships with parents and with siblings. The transferability of our influence at home is clear. We have a tremendous opportunity to make an impact on our children’s future, both in their work and in their relationships. But we must be willing to do the job.

      Run An Ad To Hire Kids You Want Instead Of Raise Them

      My Comment: If one would run an ad to hire the kids they want instead of raise them how would it read?  “We are looking to start a family. Will pay top dollar.  We are looking for kids with the following qualities…”

      The real world of the home transfers to the real world of work.

                      Many writers in the field of career education have identified essential employability skills. In our increasingly technical society, computer and math skills are often near the top of the list. On a more basic level, however, many employers are having trouble merely finding workers who can read or write. Communication skills, interpersonal skills, work responsibility skills (like coming to work regularly and on time), and problem solving and reasoning skills are all highly valued in the workplace.

                     Job Savvy: How to Be a Success at Work lists the following ten self-management skills that employers want to see in their employees:

      1.  Concern for productivity

      2.  Pride of craftsmanship and quality of work

      3.  Responsibility and ability to follow through on assigned tasks

      4.  Dependability

      5.  Work habits

      6.  Attitudes toward company and employer

      7.  Ability to write and speak effectively

      8.  Ability to read and apply printed matter

      9.  Ability to follow instructions

      10.  Ambition/motivation/desire to get ahead

                     So many of these skills are learned at home in daily interactions and in being called to be accountable for one’s actions within the context of family relationships.

      Lab #1 Do Something Together

      Relationships build learning and learning builds relationships.

                      Most children are highly motivated by the time and attention paid them by an adult who loves them. This means your home is a perfect place to be teaching life skills while focusing on relationships and sharing your life with your child. You can share your passions while kindling and fostering that passionate parent/child bond.

                     But what if you can’t stand to be around your kids? Some parents dread summer vacations and holidays because the children will be underfoot all day. If you have reached that stage in your lives, think back for a moment. Can you remember the intense love you felt for your child as an infant? You held and nurtured her and your heart sang. When you were apart, your arms ached. Those tender baby years teach us that togetherness, living together, and sharing life make you close.

                     Perhaps your older child rarely inspires such warmth in you now. It may be difficult to accept, but sometimes the child whose behavior is the most annoying to you is the one who needs your attention and time the most! Author Deborah Carroll notes, “As you spend time with him, do even mundane things with him, you’ll find yourself falling in love with him over and over again.” Time spent together can be the healer of wounded hearts and the vehicle of life instruction. Whether you are cooking together, doing a home repair, or engaging in a familiar holiday ritual, the shared time and experience can bring more depth and understanding to your relationship with your child.
