Teaching Students Responsibility

The 100% Accountable Mindset teaches the importance of being responsible for our own happiness and success.

Top 5 Dos and Don’ts at Home:

1. Do model the 100% Accountable Mindset at home by taking responsibility for your actions. It is important to maximize our time by doing things that energize and fulfill us, because these activities will help take us toward our best possible lives.

2. Do realize the importance of growth in everyday life. How we use our time determines whether we get the most out of each day, which in turn affects our future.

3. Don’t blame others for what has happened to you. When you blame or resent others, you spend a lot of time thinking negatively which prevents you from doing what you need to do to live your dreams.

4. Don’t harbor ill will toward others or allow your child to let the actions of others become obstacles for them. By holding onto anger, you cannot move forward to live your best life.

5. Don’t make excuses. Our greatest limitations are those we place on ourselves. When your child sees you making excuses for why you can’t do something, they are likely to reflect that same mentality.
