When you need a helping hand

There is nothing quite as wonderful as witnessing your kids help each other out. I remember the first time my own two children worked together to get a job done. In this case, my 1-year-old daughter had been playing with blocks. I asked her to put them back in the box and showed her how to do it. She refused and then my son took over. He marched his 3-year-old self to her side and together they put the blocks away. Wow! Cooperation. He needed to be rewarded for his efforts so it was time to add his name to the Helping Hands wall (an activity that can be found in the Team Family chapter of The Siblings’ Busy Book!) Watch this video to learn how it’s done and then watch your own kids race to help each other!
