Discussion point: Responsibility means taking care of our possessions.
As parents we often make the mistake of assuming our kids know how to care for things. Then we end up dealing with a disappointed child who bent a badminton racquet using it as a hammer, or who left an electronic device outdoors in the rain.
Ideally, each time your children are given something, spend some time educating them on how to care for it. The message your children need to get is, We take care of the things we own so they remain in good condition and last longer.
Use these sample questions or similar ones to review proper care of possessions with your children.
Proverbs 12:27 “
Whoever is slothful will not roast his game, but the diligent man will get precious wealth.”
Ecclesiastes 10:18 “
Through sloth the roof sinks in, and through indolence the house leaks.”
