If you want children to keep their feet on the ground, put some responsibility on their shoulders.
Children need to learn to take responsibility for their actions so that they do not become adults believing that nothing is their fault.
“Kids don’t remember what you try to teach them. They remember what you are.” ~ Jim Henson

“A child can teach an adult three things: to be happy for no reason, to always be busy with something, and to know how to demand with all his might that which he desires.” ~ Paulo Coelho
“Children learn as they play. Most importantly, in play children learn how to learn. ” ~ O. Fred Donaldson
