This challenge I set for myself has been stewing over in my heart for a few weeks now.  Now is the time to get it down on paper and make myself aware of it good and proper! 

 

I find myself rejoicing in the skills that my older two have – they are self-initiated and self-motivated in so many areas of their life and this gives me a freedom that I didn’t have a few years ago.  I have been challenged though that I am taking freedoms that aren’t mine – just yet!  As the older two contribute to the family, I should be using this extra time in training the younger two children.

 

As I look back and see our training path we took with the older 2 I am challenged with the following points…

 

  • a lot of reading of the bible, and natural talking of how God’s Word fits in every day situations
  • Chore training was done in an intense way with me beside them for a month at each task before they worked by themselves
  • Lessons were regular
  • Room-time was a disciplined part of our day
  • The routine assisted me in training responses

My immediate tasks are…

  1. Get my routine in print (not on my handheld computer) this will be a constant visual reminder.  Print these tasks out as well and post in strategic places!
  2. Work on my own morning routine in order to be available to my younger children from 7.00am.
  3. Be available to my children between lunch and afternoon tea time.

I remind myself that this is going to be a season of focus, effort, and time spent training my younger two.
