Chores



I am not above giving the kids chores. I ask them to help out all the time, Brook especially loves to help and here are a couple of her favorites. Helping to water my pitiful plant and doing laundry. Gage helps too but is less willing and I"ll likely never get a picture to prove he actually helps. Helping out gives them self importance, helps me out, and is always a learning experience...listening following directions, sequencing, sorting, you name it, we've learned it doing chores.

That was definitely me when I was their age! Not only I was helping my mother, but also I was learning to hear and to speak! This approach that you're doing with your children is definitely an AV therapy!
