|some really great kids|
I made up a list of things to do when a certain child says this lovely phrase. My reply "Go read the list. If you don't like anything on it, fine. But, go find something to do that doesn't involve a screen." It worked for awhile. Now we are back to ground zero. Ugh.
I read this article about how one family raised their 12 kids. My hands are clapping for their good efforts of creating an independent child-raising atmosphere. Boss Moss and I have done a good portion of these, even down to the college bit.However, we did help them for one year of college. Did you like the bit about giving their child a car? I thought this would be cool thing to do.
Since we are experiencing a family crisis we might not be able to afford to pay for weddings, cars, or college in the future. We'll see what the future brings.
Then I read this really intriguing article about 7 crippling parenting behaviors. Um, a little guilt twinge felt here. I'm trying to grow leaders here, but hard to do. Any ideas on how to get kids busy without spending a ton of money???
I would love your thoughts,
