A child who discovers his/her purpose is likely to have a more fulfilled life than the ones who don’t. On their own, children may take a longer time; however, if you help them, it may be easy for them to find their purpose and live a more fulfilled life.
If you are among the parents wondering what they can do to help their children find their purpose, then you should make use of the following ideas:
Ask questions and listen deeply
One of the things that you need to start doing is asking your children questions that will help them find their purpose. There are suggestive questions that you can ask. For example, you can ask them about that one thing they would change in the world if given a chance. You should then listen carefully to their answer and the explanation for their answer before offering your view.
Disrupt the tradition
Your children may not be able to find their purpose if you keep on doing the same things you are used to doing in your home. You need to break the routine to allow your children explore new dimensions of life that could help them find their purpose. You will be surprised to find that some of the routines you have at home are the actual hindrance to your children’s realization of their life purpose.
Get out of the way
Some parents are the actual reasons why their kids are not advancing in their efforts to find their purpose. Such are the parents that put well-intentioned roadblocks that do not allow space for exploration. Since at some point your child will have to make the decision of his /her future, it’s better you get out of the way as early as possible to make them responsible early enough to find their purpose.
Stop telling your child they are good at everything
While it is a good thing to positively reinforce the efforts your children make, avoid praising all the things they do. If you constantly tell them they are good at everything, they will be confused at knowing the thing they are really good at, which defines their purpose. You should allow your child to focus on the things that they are actually very good at rather than telling them they can do everything because they are so good.
