“I’ll do it, Mommy, but I want to do it all by myself.”
Well, alrighty then. I’m so grateful that my big girl is proud to tackle these messes all on her own.
And I’m so proud of her job well done!
She didn’t ask for money. We didn’t even have to have the “we all help out because we’re a family” talk. She just did it. Because she wanted to. Our high fives and hugs were just icing on the cake.
Lance and I do a little happy dance every time we realize that we are raising helpers. Helpers are the Finest of things! My prayer is that we encourage our kids to help in positive, fun ways so that they know they are valuable members of Team Family.
Tell me (because our kids aren’t always showing their best team spirit, if you know what I mean), how do you foster helpful attitudes in your children?
