Labor Day is celebrated on the first Monday in September. It is a day set aside to pay tribute to working men and women. Since Labor Day is a federal holiday, my husband who is in the USN will have the day off. (Family Time) Our plan for this Labor Day is to teach our children THE IMPORTANCE OF WORK whether its in our community or here at our home.
When your child is young its important to instill a working ethic that will follow them throughout their life. If a child has chores at home it teaches them that they have to show commitment on a daily basis. If I tell my daughter to wash the dishes I am depending on her to do that task. If she fails to do that "job" then she in turn will let down people who are depending her to complete that task. We are counting on her and she needs to be dependable.
On a bigger scale, if the garbage man has a "job" to pick up the trash, but he does not do the job he is hired to do, then lots of people will be disappointed when they realize their trash was never picked up. Countless people are counting on that garbage man to perform his job...... The lesson we are trying to teach them is: NO JOB IS TO SMALL, NO JOB IS INSIGNIFICANT.
Labor day is a unique opportunity for us as parents to teach our kids five important things.

Hope you have a wonderful Labor day with your family. God Bless
