The Buddy System
Posted By Smockity Frocks On February 20, 2007 @ 11:25 pm In Works For Me Wednesday | 8 Comments
I got this idea from watching The Duggars on The Learning Channel. They are a homeschooling family with 16 children, and I figured if it works for them, then it will work for me. Plus, I know a good idea when I steal one!
Michelle Duggar, the mom, told how each child is assigned to a buddy. The buddy is responsible for helping with whatever the little one needs if mom is unavailable. Helping a buddy can include tying shoes, pouring milk, getting dressed, buckling seat belts, or whatever the little one needs at the time.
In our family, buddies hold hands in parking lots, help with getting dressed for church, and this post tells how the buddy system can even help with fire safety. For more Works For Me tips, go to Rocks in my Dryer .
