Today's article had this statement in it:
Responsibility = Maturity. Early responsibility = increased maturity.
Minimizing responsibility = irresponsibility.
I must say, I agree. But it's made me think harder about how much responsibility I've given my girls so far. Sweetheart could absolutely do more, but she has a get out of jail free card in the form of a little sister. When they are playing together...I hate to interrupt. That leaves Little Bit without a playmate and I know the day will come when Sweetheart won't want to play.
Hmm. Any thoughts?
