We all want to teach our kids to be self sufficient and independent. To do this we have to take the time to invest in our kids. Small moments of patiently teaching, coaching and correcting all add up to making great children. Unfortunately sometimes I find myself doing the exact opposite. I am impatient and just do it myself instead of taking a moment to teach my kids.
I specifically had the opportunity this week to teach my boys how to unload the dishwasher. I know this is a task that they can handle at 10 years old but I have just been doing it myself because it is faster and I know where everything belongs. I had to stop myself and give myself a talking to and realize that this isn’t helping them to become the type of man that I want them to be.
This made me realize that there are a bunch of things that as moms we have to get out of the normal routine of just making it through the day and take some time to make the small investments into our kids futures.
