August 22, 2008, Newsletter Issue #196: Keep them busy with you

Tip of the Week

Are the kids getting in your way whilst you are doing some things around the home? Donīt fight them. They want to be with you and be involved in helping; let them join in. But, not in a dangerous way, like climbing ladders or playing with tools. You can give them "important" but safe jobs that give them a feeling that they are really helping dad to do his work. Perhaps, they could hold the ladder steady, or count the number of cup hooks that you have to put up (and be the special holder of these hooks), they could point out when the picture has been set straight, etc. The most important thing is that they feel involved.
