A few weeks ago, I was making my bed and realized how much work I would have to do around the house if I did everything for everyone. Imagine if I cleaned every toilet, made every bed, washed every piece of clothing, and cleaned every dish. Because I work full-time now, there is no way I would be able to do it.
I’m truly grateful that our kids are now old enough to actually help. But I also want to teach them the value of work for their own sake. Kids need to feel valuable. One easy way to make them feel important is to teach them to contribute to the family.
Of course, I also felt this topic would be great fodder for my blog.
I’m finally done turning my nose up at the title “mommy blogger” and embracing it fully with a new series called “How I teach my kids.” I want to show you how I teach my kids to do things around the house like laundry, cook, empty the dishwasher, and clean toilets.
Later, I hope to share with you how I teach my kids economics, business, and entrepreneurship. Some of the things we’ve been doing for years like taking virtual flights around the world, memorizing Bible verses through songs on YouTube and learning about other cultures may turn up in blog posts as well.
And . . . I plan on making them short blog posts. Because really, who has time to read a long blog post these days?
Stay tuned. More to come. And if you want to make sure you don’t miss any of the posts in this series, subscribe to my blog and I’ll send them your way!
