I had some friends over a few days ago for the BBQ. Their kids (they were older than mine 10 and up) kept coming up and saying, “Is there anything I can do to help?” I was blown away by their diligence in being helpful. I asked what were some of the things they do to create this outcome. She said that one of the things they say is, “We are in, ‘What’s next, Mommy,’ mode.” Too often, our kids are working on something with you and then just get bored or feel like they are done and wander off. If you teach them to say, “What’s next, Mommy,” then you aren’t abandoned in the middle of the process.
