Do you want to work yourself out of a job as a parent? Best selling author and educator Esther Wojcicki describes the one rule she used as a parent with her three daughters, "Don't do anything for your kids that they can do for themselves."

As we continue our series, Words that Matter for Your Family, we talk about the word "resourceful," and why training your children to accomplish tasks on their own develops confident, but not entitled, kids.

In this episode we talk about:

- The specific ways it pays off when you intentionally teach your kids resourcefulness
- The "I do, we do, you do" model of kids learning to do things on their own
- The patience it requires to let your kids try things on their own
- How to come alongside your kids and supervise when they don't do something right in a way that doesn't make them feel incompetent
- The importance of teaching your kids to bring you solutions when they present you with a problem
