Delegating power to children to do a job should be done carefully. When your child is ready to assume the responsibility of a new job, discuss it with him/her. Ask the following questions:
1. Do you think you can do this job as well as I could or better?
2. What is your plan for doing the job? List on paper.
3. Do you want the entire job or just a portion of it? Allow your children the opportunity to won the part of the job they feel secure in handling. Once your child has completed the job, evaluate how well the job was done.
