The point is, children doing chores is messier and takes longer than you doing the same thing. It must be done though. We want them to clean up after themselves when they grow up right? The only way to learn is to make a mess first. I guess. I do wish it weren’t this way, but alas, it is.

After all, Isn’t parenting about teaching? If I do it, she learns nothing.
If she does it, she learns that making a mess is
fun not fun. She will learn to be a productive member of the family. Helpful, responsible, orderly are words she will live by. At least, that’s what I’m telling myself.
What are you letting go of?
