Seeing this picture I took of Kate the other day got me to thinking about how important it is to involve children at a young age in the daily routines of caring for their environment. So I am putting on my Child Development cap this morning as I share this moment in time.
It’s natural to think children might not be capable of helping out around the house but introducing household chores to children at a young age gives them a sense of responsibility. By starting young, your child will grow up understanding the importance of having a clean space and it does not happen magically. Allowing your child to be involved also serves as a bonding time. Children want to be with the ones they love actively engaged. Children learn what they live so by being positive, supportive and involving them in the day to day activities teaching can happen naturally and with joy.
