Independence and Organization

Independence Day is just around the corner and it has me thinking about the traditional American values of independence, freedom responsibility and hard work!  

Men and women with these characteristics helped to shape our great nation and I hope you and your family have a wonderful time together celebrating your freedom to make a difference in our world just like they did! 

This month I shared about how we've taught our son to be responsible and hard working and gave some tips so you can help your teen find work even when it seems no one is hiring. 

 If you missed that post or any others from June you can find them here.

Independence and responsibility are something we teach to our children long before they reach the teen years.  

If you're wondering when to begin giving your children chores, then you'll be encouraged to know that my assistant has just begun slowly teaching her 2 1/2 year old to complete simple daily chores  like getting dressed and putting her clothes in the hamper, making her bed and helping a sibling to feed the dog and water the plants outside each day. 

 A simple daily routine will help foster the habit of responsibility in your kids.  

It's really never to early to teach them to use their free time to be kind and bless others by serving Daddy a cup of cool water on a hot day filled with yard work, or helping mommy pick berries in the garden.  I have a ton of ideas for teaching your kids to be organized that Ive shared through the years.  Look Here if you need a little inspiration.
