Want to raise well-adjusted, productive, God-fearing kids? One of the easiest ways to teach your kids incredibly important life lessons that set them up for that kind of success is simply to work in front of them. Check out these 7 Life Lessons Work-at-Home Moms Teach Their Kids!
Let me ask you a quick question, mama: What is your GREATEST motivation? What is the ONE thing that will inspire you to take action?What is your GREATEST motivation? What is the ONE thing that will inspire you to take action? Click To Tweet
I know for me, internal motivation is NOT one of my great strengths. If I know someone is counting on me, I’m much more likely to do something than if I say I just want to do it for myself.
I will wait until I completely run out of clean clothes before I do the laundry. But, if I know my husband is out of clean work shirts or my daughter is out of clean underwear, I’ll get that laundry done ASAP!
I’m willing to be that your family is your greatest motivator, as well. Even if you don’t want to accomplish that certain task for yourself, you’ll do it because you know it’s for the good of your family.
So, what if I told you that the one thing you’re probably ignoring right now is one thing that could teach your kids some pretty incredible life lessons?
If you’ve been a part of the Scattered Woman Crew for any length of time, you already know what that one thing is. (We talk about it A LOT!)
We moms get so busy running our households, raising our kids, and trying to stay somewhat sane that we often push our careers to the back burner. Sometimes – like when your babies are teeny and need 24/7 care and attention, our careers NEED to be pushed the bottom of the to-do list.
But, we REALLY can’t afford to push it off indefinitely.
And our kids can’t afford it, either.
When our kids see us working on our careers right in front of them – whether through remote work or an at-home business – they easily pick up & internalize life lessons that are much harder for them to learn elsewhere.What if I told you that the one thing you’re probably ignoring right now is one thing that could teach your kids some pretty incredible life lessons?
