This week let’s focus on teaching our kids a life long skill. My daughter is past the age of learning how to tie her shoes. Most of her shoes have Velcro, or are slip-ons, but she does have one pair that has laces and are her favorite. Every time I tie them for her it pops in my head, “I need to teach her.” However, we are usually in a hurry to get out the door and then it is forgotten about until the next time we are rushing to leave and I tie them for her again. Does this ever happen to you? So, this week we are going to focus on this for her.
For my son, well, he says he wants to learn to do different voices. So, we will work on that as well but we will mostly focus on learning different knots, to go along with his sister learning to tie her shoes.
What is a life long skill you can think of to focus on this week with your kids? It could be learning how to use a drill, how to brush their teeth on their own, change batteries or even how to change a light bulb.
