Book Notes: "Cleaning House", by Kay Wills Wyma
I had to get this book. Of course I did. The premise was to good not to.
Teaching your kids to clean the house, in 12 easy months? (And when, pray, did the idea of "12 months" become a manageable stretch of time in my eyes? Must have been sometime after I turned thirty . . .)
But, yes: I do want my kids to become capable adults. That's the whole point.
(Well, no. The whole point is to raise them up in the love and admonition of the Lord.
But after that? I would like them to be capable adults.)
This book did not leave me thinking that I wanted to follow the exact same schedule that the author did, but I was encouraged to give my children more responsibilities as they grow, and to remember that they can do a lot more than I assume they can.
Peace of Christ to you,
