Lessons in Chores — 5 Comments

  1. Hey it’s Holly from Tucker’s Homestead Blessings! I love the title of your blog! I grew up on a small farm in the middle of cotton fields. We had 2 cotton gins within 5 miles from our house! I love the farm life and look foward to growing our own with the hubby! Farm life absolutely teaches some of the best character, responsibilty, and values that can be taught! Enjoyed reading through your blog! Thanks for stopping by the other day 🙂

  2. I think you are doing great 🙂 We are still trying to get the basics of picking up toys with Sophie – she just can’t seem to grasp that one!!

    Love the picks – sure wish you lived a bit closer!

    • My littlest one is definitely struggling with it the most. The Ladybug is messy, but she understands that she has to clean up when she’s told to and doesn’t fuss to much (as long as it hasn’t gotten so bad she’s totally overwhelmed). But Speedracer? Sometimes it’s a fuss to get him to do ANYTHING.

      And I love blogging BECAUSE it forces me to take pictures–and then actually look at them and think about them and appreciate everything they represent to me.

  3. Farm life is a wonderful experience for kids. It teaches so much responsibility and character. When they fuss about their chores (mine do too) I have to keep in mind that we don’t always want to do our chores either. We have just grown in wisdom to know that we MUST…they will too. They are learning to do a task through trial and error. They figured it out!

    • Isn’t that true! Sometimes I don’t feel like doing it either! I guess that gets back to the “training” part of raising children. You don’t just teach them how, you have to train them to do it, usually over and over again until they get it. Thanks for the encouragement–I’m glad to know it’s not all in vain!
