Want to Teach Your Child About His Future? Here’s a Creative Idea! by Gail Harris
The other day, I dragged my 12-year-old son to Crate and Barrel. I thought he’d be bored to tears, but instead he lied down on a bed and got all comfy. What a teaching moment! I then asked him how he’d decorate his home when he grew up. He took the bait.
- How would you decorate your bedroom?
- Living room?
He showed me. Room by room, he envisioned his entire home in the store. What a chance for him to think about his future, and enjoy the present moment with me. There are so many cool ways to teach our children.
How about you? How have you engaged your child lately?
