Ever wondered how Bill Gates became that successful? How about Steve Jobs? Mark Zuckerberg? The founder of KFC? Ever wondered how their philosophies in life became very successful? What seemed to be the reason that they became that successful? It’s because of hard work and determination. But there is one reason that seems to not be said frequently. What is that secret ingredient that made successful people successful? Their parents.

Behind every son or daughter’s success is the wisdom and support of their parents. Do you want to raise your children the right way?

What do successful parenting and going in space have in common? Yep, that’s correct. Science. Here are the top science-backed things you need to do to raise successful little minions. I mean successful little children.

1. TEACH THEM CHORES

Yes. Chores. The favorite word of parents and most dreaded word of their children. We have all done some chore when we were kids. Apparently, according to science, they don’t just make your life easier, but also makes your children’s lives easier too.

"And so they're absolved of not only the work, but of learning that work has to be done and that each one of us must contribute for the betterment of the whole," said Julie Lythcott-Haims, former dean of freshmen at Stanford University and author of "How to Raise an Adult".

2. GOOD RELATIONSHIPS

No, it’s not just the kind of relationship that’s romantic. It’s about building good relationships with everyone, family, relatives, siblings, and other people that they meet in their lives.

You know, a study at the University of Illinois showed that it matters more that kids grow up in a home without fighting among their family and siblings than that their parents are together. Teach them this and they will thank you when they grow up!

3. NO MULTITASKING

While multitasking is an amazing skill, it can make a person less focused on things, and they will be prone to mistakes. That’s why when your child is studying, you have to make sure that it’s the only thing they are concentrating on. No phones, no video games, no loud music, no TV, no anything else.

4. THIS IS TRUE, YOU LITERALLY ARE WHAT YOU EAT

Of course, if your child is eating healthy, he will also grow up healthy. It will help them think faster and better, improving their memory. Better dish out the leafy greens every night then!

5. WALKS ARE TRULY REFRESHING

Ask your kid to take a good, refreshing walk outside to get fresh air. It keeps their mind relaxed and at ease. It is also helpful when they need to be creative, as walking helps them think of newer ideas and makes their focus sharper than ever. May it be a walk in the park or a walk on the beach, it helps your kid! Why don’t you try it with them?

6. POSTURE!

Posture is always important so your kid looks good and has an awesome poise. But did you know that proper posture when studying helps them absorb information more efficiently, and improves their memory retention abilities? Bet you didn’t know that! Awesome, right?

7. LET’S GET PHYSICAL! PHYSICAL!

Having a healthy body contributes to having a healthy mind! Why not ask your child to exercise every morning, especially when they have trouble studying their lessons or doing their homework! Even about 30 minutes of exercise everyday will do amazing things to their health, and make their minds sharper. Why not make your mind sharper too and join them while they exercise? It’s good family bonding time!

8. SOCIAL SKILLS GALORE

A 20-year study found that kids with good social skills turned out to be more successful.

"Socially competent children who could cooperate with their peers without prompting, be helpful to others, understand their feelings, and resolve problems on their own, were far more likely to earn a college degree and have a full-time job by age 25 than those with limited social skills," said Rachel Gillett and Drake Baer.

9. MATH MAKES YOUR SMARTER, OBVIOUSLY

A 2007 meta-analysis of 35,000 preschoolers across the US, Canada, and England found that developing math skills early can turn into a huge benefit. Reading to young children is important, but it turns out teaching them math skills is crucial as well. Better review the multiplication table and math textbooks, you might even learn something new!

Well there you have it. These are some, but not limited to, tips to help your kid grow up to be like Bill Gates! Well, I guess not. But who knows, right? Maybe because of these tips, your child might be on his way to become the inventor of a new smartphone! Or even the latest social media platform! The sky’s the limit! And don’t forget! Love and care for your kids always goes a long way. Good luck and may your child achieve success!
