One Bad Egg

Most every family has at least one child who is a bad egg.

One Bad Egg

What do you do when one of your children is not as or smart or wise as the rest of your children? Almost every family has at least one joker in the family who completely goes against the grain when it comes to success. For example, Rob Kardashian Rob is the prime example of children who have yet to catch up with the success and aspirations of his siblings. He is currently on Dancing With The Stars and making great leaps and bounds of being a star, but he has yet to make his own money or start a business as his older sisters, Kourtney, Kim and Khloe.

Although many families are not as famous as the Kardashians, many families deal with the same issues of having a bad egg in the family.

In your family it may not be , but maybe it's going to or staying off drugs, or making the right decisions. But what can parents do for children who are off track with where they should be? Redirect them.

As long as they have ears to hear, you can continue to redirect your children. There is no need to throw in the towel all because one of the kids have missed the mark. Just like an adult who has decided on a huge career change the same thing can go for a child who is in need of change.

Parents who give up on their children only add fuel to the flame which can later add to their children never doing anything with their lives. So if you do have a child, regardless as to whether they are a minor or an adult, do your best to help them find a new route and a new way to achieve a life of stability and independence. If they fail, be there to help them stand back up again. You are a parent forever regardless as to how old your child is. So expect to teach, give advice and encourage them for the rest of your life.
