To Dream The Impossible Dream of An Organized Home
Does the idea of organizing and cleaning your home seem like an impossible dream? Homeschooling mother of six Tami Fox shares how she uses routines in her home to make it a haven for her family. She’s taught her children these routines, so they’ll be able to take their wings and fly into life as prepared adults. She shares positive methods for organizing and cleaning. Tami wants to help you give your children wings, so they can FLY, too!
Excerpt from Giving Your Children Wings without Losing Yours
Do you view home keeping as a chore and drudgery? Is it something you have to endure? Is it something you ignore? Any of these perspectives will hold you back from receiving the blessings that come from having a clean and orderly home. Look at keeping order in your home as a blessing to you and to your family. Change a negative perspective and look for ways you can bless your family with a clean home.
Your children can be a part of this blessing. If you share with them the fun and joy you get from your home blessings, then it is something they will carry for the rest of their lives. By the same token, a negative attitude toward keeping your home will also go with them for the rest of their lives. Do not give children “chores” to do around the house as punishment. This will give them a negative outlook on their home for the rest of their lives. Find more positive words to use, such as tasks or routines.
