Day 15 of Teaching Kids to Serve
Stealth chore-ing (yes I made that up) is super fun because it involves a surprise!
Every so often I will pull a child aside and conspiratorially whisper "What can we do to bless your sister/brother/father today?"
Then we plot out how the child will sneakily do a chore for the other person. Everything is more fun when it is a surprise!
Generally chores are not looked upon as fun activities in my house, so I see this as a double blessing. Not only is my child serving a member of the family, but doing work with a cheerful attitude. Maybe Mama is the stealthy one, eh?
Needless to say the finished chore is always well received by the recipient. Another win for sibling relations!
