So summer is around the corner and I am SO EXCITED!
I am ready to sleep in some (no more 5:30 wake time--yay!), spending lots of time at the pool and enjoying more time with these boys of mine at home!
I have been thinking about all the fun we will have but also about how to instill a good work ethic in these boys, even during the summer. It seems like it was easier to teach the value of hard work in the olden days when life was more physically demanding and most people lived on a farm where the work never ended. I really want my boys to learn to work hard, but I am realizing that, that takes a lot of planning and work from me. Last year, I used this summer chore system and it worked great, but I am trying to revamp and change it up some. I am curious, what do you do to give your children opportunities to develop good work habits?
I would LOVE to hear your ideas!!
