The End of Molasses Classes Part II

I'm back with Part II of my Molasses Classes book study!  You can read Part I here.

The Role of the Parent in the Success of the Child

28. Remind Children of Their Blessings and Stress the Value of a Strong Work Ethic
I have a friend who just returned from a trip to aide schools in Peru.  She said their group brought a package of crayons for the students {since they weren't really supposed to bring anything}.  One package.  For the whole class.  And the students were absolutely ecstatic.  She said is was absolutely amazing how grateful these young students were.  

Children need to be reminded constantly of how fortunate they are to live in a country where they have the chance to get an education, live in a free society, and have an opportunity to be successful through hard work.  Enough said.

30. Don't Get Your Kid a Video Game System Unless You are Ready to be a Prison Guard
My husband and I don't have any children yet, but I can see this as a potential issue in our house.  He is a huge video game fan (yes, at the age of 28) and I absolutely hate video games.  I always have, I always will.  I would much rather see a child participate in an activity that will build their imagination.

I'll be back tomorrow with Part III of The End of Molasses Classes!
