​Welcome to the Family

The Little Red Hen taught her little chicks to work along side her as we should do in our families.  The lazy barnyard animals learned a hard lesson--they didn't earn the reward.  *I linked the picture to a free online version of the story.  I personally like the version that shows the little red hen engaging her little chicks in the work more.  This version doesn't really show that, but the story is cute anyway.

#5: Children are provided for and taught well. 

Points to Ponder:

  • Working together promotes the success of the family.
  • A sense of togetherness can be achieved when doing a job as a family, especially when there is pride in a job well done.
  • Sharing ideas on how to best accomplish a task can yield a better result.  Better methods of doing things can often come from the children rather than the parents.
  • When families work together, they can best utilize the strengths of each member and also join in helping each other with any weaknesses.
  • Coordination and communication skills are strengthened.
  • In working together, children are learning by their parent's example:

                 How to work with others

                 How to resolve conflicts

                 What kind of attitude one should have toward work

                 The importance of doing your best 

                 Etc.
