Item Description...
A self-described "enabling mother" embarks on a one-year experiment of empowering her five kids to master the basic tasks of independence, gaining valuable insights for every parent who wants to rid their home of youth entitlement. Today's well-intentioned parents go to great lengths to make their children's lives easier. But instead of leading to happy kids, such hovering instills dependency and helplessness. When parents arrange for a child's success, the resulting message is, "I'll do it for you because you can't." But as author Kay Wills Wyma discovered, what kids really need to hear is, "I believe in you so I'm going to make you work." For one year she focused on training her children in key life skills, beginning with making their own beds right on through yard work, hospitality, and community service. In this book she shares her experiences along with practical tips and wisdom from other parents and experts.

Publishers Description

"Is Your Home Out of Order?"
" "
Do your kids expect clean folded clothes to magically appear in their drawers? Do they roll their eyes when you suggest they clean the bathroom? By racing in to make their lives easy, have you unintentionally reinforced your children's belief that the world revolves around them?
Dismayed at the attitude of entitlement that had crept into her home, Kay Wyma got some attitude of her own. "Cleaning House "is her account of a year-long campaign to introduce her five kids to basic life skills and the ways meaningful work can increase earned self-confidence and concern for others.
With irresistible humor and refreshing insights, Kay candidly details the ups and downs of equipping her kids for such tasks as making beds, refinishing a deck chair, and working together. The changes that take place in her household will inspire you to launch your own campaign to dislodge your kids from the center of their universe.
" "
""If you want your children to be more responsible, more self-assured, and more empathetic, "Cleaning House "is for you.""
--Jim Daly, president of Focus on the Family
