Summer is a Great Time to Clean Toilets!....

Or at least, it's a great time to teach kids how to clean them!

But that's probably not what's foremost on your mind right now. Summer has hit; school is almost out; it's time for vacation!

But if you're not careful, you could get into a bad routine where you chauffeur kids, buy kids ice cream, cater to kids, and work for kids, but you never actually ask them to do anything in return.

It's easy during vacations to want to make it as fun as possible for the children. But let's remember that the whole reason we have summer vacations is that kids were needed to work on the farm!

There's nothing wrong with teaching your kids to clean a toilet this summer, or asking them to help you clean out the garage. In this week's podcast, I help you find ways to get kids working this summer--so that they enjoy the fun times even more!

My podcasts are short, fun clips that give you encouragement on your parenting and marriage journey. Download them here, or subscribe at this page by clicking on the links to the right. Then you can download them regularly to your iPod or Zune to listen as you go!

Sadly, I don't have the finances for a vacation. However, my children (7 and just turned 11)already know how to clean the toilet. Nothing wrong with the kids helping to clean toilets or other tings around the house.
