I speak to my kids as often as I possibly can....I wanted to talk to them about their chores. I noticed something Very interesting one Saturday morning...We were all in different parts of the house cleaning......TALK ABOUT A LIGHT BULB MOMENT....Our weekends are so busy here.
STOP STOP STOP STOP STOP STOP
There is always a full list of things to do. Our children have their Friday chores and laundry needs to be done, the house needs to be cleaned, errands need to be run...STOP STOP STOP STOP STOP STOP
I thought about it, If everybody is running around separately there is a great probability that disconnect could creep its ugly head....NOT IN MY HOUSE...
DON'T YOU WISH IT WAS AS EASY AS SIMPLY PUSHING A BUTTON
My husband Patrick and I decided that instead we would do some of the weekend chores with our kids... I know this is a little unorthodox but for all of you that follow this blog, you know I do what's best for MY FAMILY.
This approach as great as it sounds, may not work in your home.
I figured if I am doing the chores WITH THEM I can use that time to talk and communicate with them as we worked TOGETHER.
I realize that as parents in 2012 we watch our kids everyday FACE DIFFICULT TIMES. As each new problem arises we have used the TEACHINGS OF THE BIBLE in our pursuit of raising them the best way we possibly can. The Bible encourages parents to take time to communicate with their children.
Together Patrick and I are finding ways to use each moment as a opportunity to teach our children.
