Dependability vs. Inconsistency
Fulfilling what I consented to do, even if it means unexpected sacrifice.
Dependability in the home includes:
· Committing to stay together even through financial difficulties and personality conflicts.
· Parents being faithful to go to work and provide for the family.
· Sons and daughters completing their homework every day.
· Helping family members to avoid making commitments they cannot keep.
· Family members fulfilling promises they make to each other.
· keep my word.
· be careful what I promise.
· correct my mistakes.
· pull my share of the load.
· not having a bad attitude.
Rewards of Dependability
When family members are reliable, they receive praise from each other at home as well as in public..
Children who prove to be dependable in little things will gain the trust of their parents. Their parents will in turn trust them in more significant areas and give added responsbility.
