Leadership can truly be shown everywhere. Today, we will take a closer look at leaders within your own family! Every family has leaders, whether it’s your mom, dad, brother, sister or maybe even you! Let me start with the adults in the family!
Your parents are your first siblings and your biggest role models. They usually show very good leadership and work hard to support your family. Leadership shown by parents are often fueled by love for their children. Parents keep the family together, and (I hope) are in charge of your family. For example, if your father is a stay at home dad, they take care of you, and make sure that you are safe and happy. While your mother, who probably works in this case, makes sure you can go what you need to survive and thrive! Your parents (Again, this is an I hope situation) probably are very good leaders, and you can learn a lot from them!
To the younger leaders of the family. As explained in my last post, older siblings usually take care of you when your parents aren’t around, and although you might argue, you become great friends! You might be the oldest sibling, and you might know how it feels to show leadership in the family. But younger siblings show leadership too! Sometimes an older sibling might be really scared of something, and a younger sibling might take charge and show leadership!
Leadership is truly a very interesting thing. And I have some questions for you!
1) Have you ever shown leadership in your family?
2) How does it feel like to show leadership?
I hope these questions get a good conversation started!
