Look how kids can make a difference in your home. Sh*t Thinking Kids Can Do (See for yourself!) | Vicki HoefleA great kindergarten teacher once told me “I see any unused ability in my class as an incipient behavior problem.” Sh*t Thinking Kids Can Do (See for yourself!) | Vicki Hoefle-6If your children aren’t doing things like this, you are not only wasting valuable human resources, you are also miseducating them. Sh*t Thinking Kids Can Do (See for yourself!) | Vicki Hoefle-7Besides you are missing some family fun. But be sure you start early.

Question: I did start early. She used to love it. Now she doesn’t. Where does one go with it?

She’s six by my calculation? Each child is different so there is no standard answer. But now her interests may have shifted to developing SELF more than fitting in at home, and she is more into fairness that instinctive give and take and relationship building with Mom–she’s probably pretty secure in that relationship.
She is treating you differently, now is a good time to surprise jher with a new gambit she hasn’t seen before, or one that you know she uses, or values or apprieciates. Llike maybe something like: 1) do research on her interests, take an interest in them, maybe participate with her in any that would be fun for both, and 2) play let’s make a deal. Just a thought. another strategy is just to talk about responsibilities–does she notice your burdens? would she please help? No? Really? how could you? what if I stopped doing stuff for you? –I don’t know, each child and each relationship is different, so these are just idea-openers.
