Our friend Amy McCready posted this great link. It just talks about how to talk to your kids about chores. I know that I don’t always tell my kids to put away their laundry or clean their rooms the right way. Just takes a minute to make a difference in the way you do it with your kids.
My oldest child is now 20. I am posting a letter here that she wrote to herself when she was eight. I think it is adorable and she is now in college majoring in communications with a minor in creative writing. I think her writing ability surpassed mine when she was in 10th grade. She plans on writing a great novel and based on her predictions at eight I wouldn’t bet against it. For those of you with children in the early grades encourage them to write letters to themselves when they are older about who they will become. They will love it and it will bring joy to you also. Who knows some of them might even predict their future. The scary thing is my youngest has been saying he wants to join the military for about two years now. I will try to get him to write a letter about growing up to be an accountant……. Have a wonderful day. Mark
