  • For me it changes daily- some days it's patience, other days it spending more quality time together, others it's getting him to be more responsible....

  • For the older kids I would teach them that you can work and go to school, and should do both when they become teens and should save up for a car.

    We always told our kids SCHOOL COMES FIRST true, but they should of learn to do both. My son is a little spoiled :(

    Learning how to balance school and work is also very educational.
