checking out posts here & in other groups got me thinking about resolutions & made me think perhaps we all should have at least one resolution/goal/change for the new year. even the kids, well at least those that are school age, after all it'd be kinda hard to have a toddler make a resolution! ;o)
it could be anything from doing chores without being told to doing better in a class they've been having a hard time in this year. improving stats (for those that are athletic) to reading more. being more organized to eating more veggies.
if you are one to make new years resolutions yourself do you think you'll have your kids do so also?
most definately. they are never too young to help out around the house. in our family we don't do "chores", hate that word, makes it seem like something hard to do. instead it's simple family responsibilities/jobs. things that need to get done in order to keep the family & home running smoothly. (& to keep mami from going insane doing it all ;o) on that same note they don't get an allowance for doing their jobs either. as adults we don't get paid for picking up after ourselves so why should kids?
ive been thinking about this. my grandaughter lives with me and she is nine years old and doesnt have any chores. i am thinking of giving her a couple of chores to do this year.
