Last time in our series we talked about how a lazy mom should teach her children about everything. She does this for two main reasons… because if she doesn’t, someone else will. And if she doesn’t teach them, then who will prepare them for life?
Because as moms and dads we are responsible for getting our children ready for life.
– Not the school.
– Not the church.
Nope. Those are just places that come alongside us in our quest for raising great kids.
And while we’re on the subject, your church is not responsible for teaching your kids everything they need to know about God either… YOU are. And I can say that because The Lazy Dad’s a Pastor. Making me a… dare I say it? *gulp* Pastor’s wife. There. I said it. But I won’t get on my soapbox here, I’ll spare you my three point sermon behind making that statement.
So what are some things we should teach our kids besides basic things like, how to make a sandwich, how to load a dishwasher, how to fold the clothes?
Well, I think there’s LOTS of stuff we should teach our kids. Of course, at the top of my list is God. But other things on the list include…
Teach them how to apologize.
Teach them how to talk to you.
Teach them about money.
Teach them how to be responsible for their actions.
Because the more we teach our children, the lazier we can be, remember?
So next time in our Parenting the Lazy Mom Way series, we’ll start down this list. Starting with how to teach your kids how to apologize. It’s good stuff. Don’t miss it!
