Those of you who are friends with me on Facebook know that I have been working hard on something new. Surprise! It’s a completely remodeled blog! Simplified. Cleaner. Easier to navigate and search. After reading this blog post, I hope that you will take some time to look around.
I realize that there are some formatting issues with a few older posts (this will take time) but if you have other suggestions, I would love to hear them.
The second surprise is that I have joined a new team!
For the past year, I have had the opportunity to write for the What’s in the Bible? blog. Restructuring moved the blog from WITB to the JellyTelly website. In this change I was asked to not only continue to writing but also to join the JellyTelly Team. Exciting!
Here’s a recent post I wrote sharing ideas to Teach Kids the Value of Responsibility.
The next customer in my checkout line was buying mostly cleaning supplies. Had I not made small talk with her, our conversation would have been forgettable like many others. But, she confessed something to me that I think of often.
She declared it was too much work to train her child to clean up after himself and help around their home. She said, “It’s so much easier to do it myself” and even as a teenager, I was shocked.
Twenty-five years and four children later, my shock over her statement has turned to empathy. I get it. It is exhausting training children to be responsible. It’s so much easier to hover over my children and do the chores myself to meet my expectations.
