  Connect Labor Day to Family Chores

(0 A Aug 2018) SaveOurShores_Kids.jpgIt's hard to imagine how some people can be oblivious about leaving trash, shoes, clothes, plastic bottles etc. on the beach (or anywhere) after spending a day enjoying our beautiful beach ambiance. Nevertheless it happens.

We-who-care appeal to them as they arrive and after they leave. With the big Labor Day weekend coming up, Save Our Shores invites us to donate time handing out trash bags and picking up trash after the weekend.

(0 A Aug 2018) happy-labor-day-.jpgAlthough the history of our American Labor Day's origins lies in celebrating the manual labor done and rights won by union members during our early industrial era, it has evolved into a three day weekend associated not only with labor but has become a break between the halcyon days of summer and a period of "getting back to work or school." It's a great time to discuss the labor needed to run a smooth family enterprise. Even the littlest ones can begin to experience the pride of contributing labor to the family's well being.

Enjoy the weekend with the family and engage in lots of family play as well as age-appropriate chores! Parmalee

  Opinion: Children Who Do Chores Become Responsible Adults

by KJ Dell'Antonia

"One small longitudinal study, done over a period of 25 years, found that the best predictor for young adults' success in their mid-20s was whether they participated in household tasks at age 3 or 4.

Those early shared responsibilities extended to a sense of responsibility in other areas of their lives." Read more>>>
