This week we take a look at Asset #20, Time at Home. According to the Search Institute, “Youth are more likely to grow up healthy when they go out ‘with nothing special to do’ two or fewer nights per week.”
Now I’m glad that little quote comes directly from the Search Institute because I swear I heard audible gasps coming from homes throughout the community on that one. I think I’d like to rephrase this one to ask, do your children like to be at home?
Now that question is not necessarily directed at parents who have students home from college for the summer. You may just happen to feel like you’re running a bed and breakfast. You know they come in at night, you may catch sight of them at some point during the day, dinner is optional and the bed looks messed.
I know you love the questions, so here goes. Ask your kids what they like most about their home. I should say be prepared because the answer probably won’t be your cooking. It shouldn’t be posed after you’ve asked them to clean their room. It also may depend on the time of day.
