Being needed gives kids a healthy sense of significance and purpose. Give them jobs that if not done will result in consequences for other people. As much as possible, set up systems and structures that truly depend on the child's participation. Train your childe that we're blessed to be a blessing.
For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blamelessin his sight. In love he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will. - Ephesians 1:4-5
I love this!!<< this is TRUE of motherhood, it develops you in a way that is amazing, people can tell you but until you have children yourself, it is just unknown. My children have taught me so much about myself and about life. I am a better person individually because of them!
