“Please take care of what you have.”
Moms and dads who demonstrate good stewardship and encourage their kids to do the same will eventually get good results. We forget that children have to actually be taught how to care for their things. There is no substitute for a parent who is a good example in the area where they want their child to grow. Explaining the value of stewardship and complimenting children when they take care of what they have helps to instill a sense of organization and responsibility. Kids who value what they have will one day become adults who do the same.
