Life With Wee People: Work Is The New Play... Minion Driving 101
Noah and Stephen Starr go to Papa and Nana's house in SC to visit the Little Minion Fields and learn how to drive a tractor. If you buy your shorties acres they have to learn how to cut the grass. Planting seeds of responsibility can be mad fun if you are very careful... My kids are car crazy so teaching them how to drive in the Little Minion Fields is always a neat treat. Watching my Dad teach them to drive a tractor in his 1.4 acre backyard? Priceless...
Yeah... I know... this from the chick who was introduced to power tools by her grandad at the tender age of not quite six (LOL). My Mom's father was an awesome master carpenter who instilled in us a healthy respect for "useful equipment." Teaching wee people how to do useful stuff at a young age is a family tradition.
Parenting is a adventure your kids should love... I did a lot of neat stuff before I was ten so I have no intention of being stingy now that I have kids (LOL).
Yeah... it's true. I'm having a second childhood with them. Safety first people. Don't casually try this at home. It's a life lesson not a stunt. You have to know your children and really understand their learning curves to introduce concepts and skill points to them. You also have to know your equipment and plan your fail safe responses. Curious kids who want to try and help should be given the opportunity to learn in a safe environment. It is amazing what they can do if you give them the opportunity, confidence and support to do it. Something as simple as cutting the grass can lead to bigger and better learning experiences... ;-)
