I worked when I was very young on odd jobs or delivering papers and on and on. I purchased things when they were on sale, and then at Christmas time, I gave those things to my friends and family. Had I waited for times when my parents could drive me with all of the traffic and ruckus, then it would have made them and me...miserable. We didn't buy tons of things for each other. We bought one thing. We did however do many kind things all year long for each other, and treated each other with respect, and sometimes did buy an inexpensive ice cream cone for one another. As I got older, my parents wanted to buy things for me, but often bought things I didn't need or desire. They gave me Christmas money instead and saved themselves the hassle, and then sometimes many months later, I'd purchase things on sale that I did need. I bought a very good recurve bow that way. I bought many like new clothes and books at the Salvation Army store. Maybe on rare occasions, I bought some new shirts to look good. I bought quality merchandise that would hold up, and took care of it. My friends spent a lot of money on clothes, but you know, I dated just as much if not more than them. How much are frozen turkeys today now that Thanksgiving is past? Who will have money after Christmas? The stores will have to lower prices on some things, not all due to inflation, but in the short term they need that floor space for incoming inventory. You don't need that thing right now. That's the guaranteed way to spend the most for it. If you're an old fart, you know that calculators, microwave ovens, VCRs, and DVD players were very expensive when they first came out. Why in the world would you teach your children to buy these things the very first day they're first sold. That is lunacy. Have some priorities. I never thought of my parents as “tightwads”. If your kids will think that, then you've taught them something wrong along the way. [/quote]
There are many free homeschooling sites with pdf files. It would be great to have them just in case there are issues.
Get medications that your kids need. See if your doctor will prescribe 3 months supplies for them.
Get some presents tomorrow for Christmas. Little gifts that you could give out not only then, but throughout the year as incentives. They'll really appreciate them.
Children can thrive in the woods as long as they have calm parents. They cannot keep up with your pace up and down tails. You've got to plan adequately if you do have to walk some.
Kids are used to incorrectly using a backpack since kids at school wear them in the wrong fashion, which adds too much stress to their lower back. You'll have to reteach them how to buckle it properly and position it higher than they used to wearing it.
Try to make gathering wood into a game. Teach them as much about nature as possible. Being quiet is as important as talking.
Kids love open fires. Tell stories. It can simply be times when they did wonderful things when they were younger. They love hearing how much you love and adore them. Even teens.
Hug and kiss them often. Be generous with your affection. Lavish it on them
