What are you teaching your kids at home?
[caption id="attachment_4587" align="alignright" width="290"] Tyler fun, outgoing, strong, communicative with his own personality[/caption] I have two kids Tyler six and Stella Rose two years old. Even though I work a lot and spend a lot of my time working, they know what quality time with mommy and daddy is. I work from home which sometimes makes things easy in case of emergency I could run to them or to the doctor, or rush to the school if necessary. The other day I sat down and thought that my older son has seen how me and my husband do things around the house that he is learning the same (in many ways) You need to involve your kids in doing things around the house, from throwing the trash, to pick up toys, to learning about your work, etc. So one day I was having lunch and my six year old Tyler said: Mommy I served you water because you always have lunch with a glass of water. Of course at first my reaction was WOW Tyler, that is very nice of YOU. Then I started to realize that those are the things we have doing for years; in our case mommy serves dinner and daddy is in charge of drinks (sometimes we have to remind him that...haha) and without a doubt this have been little lessons that will live forever in Tyler's mind. We are a family and we all have to help. We all have to be involved. I don't like, when someone tells me I can't leave m y daughter with my husband because he wouldn't know what to do. Trust me they will figure it out. We weren't born to be expert moms and learned to be and to do the best with our kids. Perhaps we have that mother instinct but men need time with their kids to develop that special bond and learn to be parents. We have our "Brooks rules"
- No shouting
- No fighting
- No bad words / talk back
