Sometimes it’s easier to do things yourself than to get children to do them, right? A four-year-old is old enough to gather and empty the trash. But you have to help him pick it up and guide him. A six-or seven-year-old can help with the dishes and yard work, too. Also, when children go to school, that’s a part of their work as well.
Some say, “Pastor Rogers, don’t you want children to play?” Of course! But this summer a lot of kids will be saying, “There’s nothing to do!” They’ll be bored. Around my house, I was afraid to act bored because my dad would find something for me to do. Let them work so that when they play, their play will be a whole lot sweeter.
