In this episode, Matt and Charla discuss the importance of granting privileges based on a child’s maturity and responsibility rather than age or peer pressure. They emphasize the significance of tying privileges to demonstrated responsibility and provide practical examples and strategies for parents to implement this approach effectively.

**The Concept of Earned Privileges:**

– Children often feel entitled to privileges because of their age or because their peers have them.

– Privileges should be granted based on maturity and responsibility, not just age.

– The importance of engaging children in their own growth and responsibility.

**Maturity and Responsibility as Your Guide:**

– Parents should set expectations and grant privileges based on their child’s ability to handle responsibility.  Examples include managing screen time, handling money, and taking care of belongings.

– Bedtime should be adjusted based on a child’s ability to wake up independently and manage their sleep schedule.  Privileges like a later bedtime should be tied to demonstrated responsibility.

– Phones and other tech should be granted based on responsible behavior.  Charla emphasizes leveraging a child’s desire for technology to teach responsibility.

– Allowances should be tied to a child’s ability to manage their belongings and demonstrate responsibility.  Charla suggests a trial period to monitor responsibility before granting an allowance.

**Growing Responsibility:**

– Privileges should increase with demonstrated responsibility, similar to leveling up in a video game.

– Charla and Matt discuss how to define and measure responsibility in children.

– Avoid comparing children to their siblings when granting privileges.

– Set clear standards for responsibilities and expectations.
