Who Took The Lid Off?

By Kay Heitsch • October 4, 2017

Last week our little special needs grandson Noah owned up to something he had done. Noah had taken the lid off of the gerbil cage and the cat had gotten in. I'm happy to report the gerbils are fine.

When Noah told me that he had taken the lid off the cage I was happy that he was taking responsibility for his actions. I told him how proud I was of him for owning up to what he had done.

This week at school Noah received an award for being the Star Student. When I asked what the award was for I was told it was, The Responsible Award. You know I am a proud Ooma (Grandma)

I think it's important that children learn early to be responsible and own up to things they do wrong. This Bible verse is good advice. "Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6

If a child is trained early to "Accept Responsibility" it's a good chance they will learn from their mistakes and grow to be responsible adults.
