Tip #41: Keep your promises to your child.
We, as adults, must keep our word and never promise to go or do something if we cannot truly complete that promise. Children soon find out who they can depend on and trust. We always want our children to confide in us and come to us when they have difficult decisions or are having problems. They will soon go to peers or others if they cannot trust you. You must build that relationship of trust when they are small, because it is difficult to change their opinions once they feel betrayed or continually disappointed. Something you can do is keep your word!!.
