I have a few things on my mind. Some say it takes a village to raise a child. I totally believe it. We rely on grandparents, family, and friends to help us mold our kiddos. I will be the first to admit I am not the best mama. Though I try hard to do my best :) (obviously- ha)
A couple questions for you other experienced mamas....
Tithing lessons... how, when, what did you do? Why do I ask? Well, I picked Ay up from sunday school a few weeks ago and her teacher that day said she had a "rough morning". That totally caught me off guard bc she loves her class. She just moved up to this "big girl" class in May and is closely the youngest in there.
Anyways, the lady told me she cried when she didn't have anything to put in the offering basket. Gulp. No one told me that they collected an offerring. But I didn't want to admit to her I was a clueless mama. So did some research and found out details.
This past week I talked to her about the special basket and asked if she wanted to do chores for money to put in there. Honestly, I felt clueless. I wasn't really teaching her how to properly tithe her earnings, just to give. She Happily gave it all. She's been making her bed each day and helping with the pets now. But how did you teach or plan to teach your kiddos?
Next question... Ayla is starting school so there has been alot of talk around the house kinda "pumping" her up! Leah pretty much believes she's going. Tonight was Ay's meet the teacher night. I explained on the way to class to Leah that tonight we'd be playing in her class, but next week we'll drop her off and go play special things on our own. Leah then said, "Mommy I don't wanna play with you- Im going to preschool"
Sheesh... As if I wasn't emotional enough. Thanks Leah! I told her it would be awesome. In my head I will be a mess- who am I kidding! I wanna go to school with Ayla too. ha My question is have any of you ran into problems like this and what kind of things did you do or help (bribe- sorry) your younger child into understanding its not their turn?
HELP! Thanks in advance...
