The other day I read, on someone else’s blog, about how important it is to teach our kids to work hard. I whole-heartedly agree with the post, and my kids insist that they have more chores than any of their friends! (Insert whine and eye-roll here.)
The complaining doesn’t deter me one bit. The hardest thing for me is living with the “finished chore” during these many years of learning curve.
This, for example, is a “clean” casserole dish that I took out of the cupboard. CHUNKS of food all over it! Unfortunately, not an uncommon sight at my house.
I need some reassurance. They will learn, right? If I keep at it, and catch as many of these sloppy jobs as I can, they will get better?
