I thought I was saying yes to getting time off work, helping to plan here and there, and then going to serve food. We had our first meeting and I realized I had said yes to a much bigger commitment…
Teaching kids to work can feel a lot like Groundhog Day, the same thing over and over and over – but just like in the movie, repetition over time can lead to some great results.
What if instead, when we’re feeling hurt, or sad, we allow our children to see us cry? And when they ask, “Mommy, why are you sad?” You tell them. You let them know that you feel pain too. And by example, you teach them to talk to someone they love and trust when they feel pain, instead of trying to bear it all alone.
