31 Days of Good Habits~ Day Twenty

Day Twenty here we come!!!  Now we've completed both our Morning Routine and our Before Bed Routine.  All we have left is our Afternoon Routine and a few other random habits to work into our daily lives.

One of the areas we need to work some good habits into are our meal times.  Today and tomorrow we will be addressing Table Chores.  These will look VERY different depending on how many children you have and how old they are.  My one encouragement would be, start them young!  Even tiny little walkers can help carry spoons to and from the table.  Ella (2) helps set the table with the rest of them!

As far as setting the table goes, we just have everyone who is handy join in.  In the past we have assigned roles (example~ Lydia sets plates.  Bethany sets cups. Havilah sets silverware.), but at this time, one or another are usually helping me with the meal so table setting is assigned however it works best for the night.

Again, make sure the job is always completed to the standard you have set for them.  But remember to be gracious and not to expect too much from small children!
