John Tucker is Director of the International Centre for Families in Business.
Involving children in the family business is something most owners do, whether it's unconsciously or not. But perhaps they are trying to involve someone in a business in which they have no interest. Encouraging a child to participate in something they have no interest in is a sure way for them not to succeed in that activity.
You need to ask yourself a few questions about your child's relationship with the business and what you have done in encouraging their interest.
