You have your job, finances, house chores, grocery shopping, laundry, pets, and kids. The number of things you are responsible for seems to make life race at a dizzying pace. So when can you find time to teach your kids all those important character-shaping lessons the books talk about? You know it’s your “responsibility”, but what isn’t these days?
Well, that’s exactly what we are here for at Studio252. We know your life leaves little room for brainstorming creative ways to talk with your children about much more than soccer schedules, homework, and dinner options. So, we have already come up with some fun, quick ways to connect with your child as a family this month and teach them about the character of God that they are called to emulate.
This month, we are focusing on a topic we know you can relate to—RESPONSIBILITY! For your kids, we have come up with an easy definition: Responsibility is showing you can be trusted with what’s expected of you.
So check out studio252.tv for some great family activities and ways to teach your child all about responsibility. And who knows? You may find yourself juggling a few less chores by the end of the month! Here are just a few ideas to get you started in the meantime:
- Watch this month’s CueBox episode as a family to see Jenny learn a valuable lesson in just what it means to show responsibility.
- Let your kids be responsible for dinner one night by following Jon’s easy lasagna recipe
