Children learn best by example.
One of the best ways is to teach them is to work, together, with them! Starting
with the very youngest, each child should have designated chores and
responsibilities within his family.
In our family, as the children grow, they
take on greater responsibilities. The youngest start by helping
mom to dust the baseboards and take out the garbage! Don't be
fooled by those who say that childhood is only for playing.
Balance is the key. Work first, play later
- that way, children have some motivation to be responsible. It's
not unreasonable to expect children to finish their work before anything
else. Yes, even a three year old
can make his bed before he begins his day!
