Homeschooling, cooking, sewing and reading with my family in Southeastern PA.
Completely agree. My son and I had a good discussion about this today. I would add though, that moms should never allow their kids to act that way. Kids can be taught to serve at an early age, otherwise, when they are bigger and stronger than you are, what will you do? I told my youngest the stories from the post and he couldn't believe they were true.
Take a look at the comments. There is one from a single mom about her own experiences shoveling out her driveway while neighbors - grown men with snowblowers - do their own driveways and ignore her as she struggles. (If I recall correctly, the commenter has children too small to help.)
Love it, such an important lesson!
Definately an important lesson. My kids are learning that they need to be helpful to others. My son will not only carry the groceries, he helps bag them. My daughter volunteered to help our church out with washing towels for the shelter program they run. Small things like this make me feel we must be doing something right! Hopefully I can keep them on this same track as they get older and more capable.
