Make to do lists with your kid

 
One of the things I love to do with and for my kid is to make “to do” lists.  I am a list person all the way through and I found early on that I sometimes get so caught up in what I need or want to do that the things I wanted to do with and for my daughter got left behind.  So, I started making “to do” lists with my daughter and it has been one of the best things I could have ever done for her!  I have been doing this for many years now and the rewards have been wonderful.  Now, that she is a bit older, I have her participate in making the lists.  When she was younger, I would make the lists to make sure that we didn't miss anything that I thought was important to her learning, experiencing and growing.  I plan a balance of things for her/us to do.  Whether it is puzzles, making a craft, baking/creating something in the kitchen, music, dolls or catching balls, playing sports, chalk, drawing, etc., the list goes on and on.  I want to ensure that are doing a varied list of activities to help her learn, grow and be successful in life and school.  If you take the time to make a list of well-rounded activities, it will insure that you will do these things with your child.  I have to say that as I watch my daughter grow she is good at many things and I believe it is because we have always had our "to do" list with varied activities on it.
 
If you practice this with your child that is wonderful, if not, it is time to start.  Get out that piece of paper, pen and start creating your “TO DO” list today.  Don't make it so long and unobtainable, make it simple. Puzzles, play catch and music (listen, dance and play instruments).  That’s it, that easy and the rewards your kid will have are tremendous.  Tomorrows’ list you ask....make a craft for the holidays, play hopscotch and play their favorite game.  It's easy to do, change it up, make it well rounded and your child will be well rounded too!  All of my best!  Dyan
 
 
 
There is one thing that I never had to write down and that was to read with my child.  I have been reading with her since the day she was born (well maybe not until we got home from the hospital) but pretty darn close to it.  I didn't read when she was in the womb, but once born, I am proud to say that I really have only missed a hand full of days because of traveling, visitors or something else special planned.  But I make the time everyday to read and the benefits to her are amazing, the first time she took the book out of my hands and said “I think I can read this to you mommy” and started reading to me I was overwhelmed with emotion and so proud of her!   Reading to your child is so important it builds confidence, encouragement and it’s a great way to bond with your kid.  Read every day the rewards are well worth it!!!
