Teaching Children to Look for Ways to Help

One of the parts of our honor definition is that we do more than what’s expected. That means seeing what needs to be done and doing it. It means solving problems instead leaving them for others. One family had a sign in their kitchen that read:
If it’s broken, fix it.
If it’s empty, fill it up.
If it’s open, shut it.
If it’s out, put it away.
If it’s messy, clean it up.
If you can’t, then report it.
That’s honor.

Take time to teach children that they don’t have to be asked in order to do a job. Honor means that we’re all contributing to family life. In fact, you may ask a child to go around the house and look for one job that needs to be done and do it, then report back to you.

These kinds of discussions and exercises will help children think outside of their little box and discover that they have a responsibility to the family. They can contribute to family life by just seeing something that needs to be done and doing it.

Of course, that’s what makes a valuable employee too so you can teach your children something more important than just how to get along better in your family. You may be preparing them to be outstanding employees as they get older.

What in the world are you doing?

Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much.” Luke 16:10a

This month the virtue of responsibility, which is showing you can be trusted with what is expected of you, was the focus of Anchor Bay grades kinder-5th.  The focus was on service and we will continue the focus into July.  The idea of service, which is lending a hand to help someone else, was made tangible at the beginning of the month.  Each student was given ‘a little bit’ to help Shoreline’s goal of outfitting 800 backpacks for Monterey County children returning to school this fall.

Suggestions were made to take their $2.00 and purchase a Bible or two from the book store; they could turn that $2.00 into more by buying supplies to make cookies and hold a bake sale and so on.

A few success stories from this past month.  The Choate girls made $100.00 by making some baked goods and selling them on the corner near their home.  The Wilcox kids sold cherries and honey bringing in over $200.00.  Janie Eldridge also had a bake sale and will be donating more than her $2.00, as well as, Jessica Badiny.

The kids learned there is what you HAVE to do; what you CHOOSE to do; what you SHOULD do and what you COULD do.  Then finally what you NEED to do and what you WANT to do.

We think putting responsibility and service back-to-back produces a powerful 1-2 punch.
