A Boy’s Responsibility

What can turn a boy into a man?

Responsibility.

How do you instill responsibility without being a naggy mom?

Allow him his first pet that he buys with his own money.

Meet Mike the hamster.

And how to weave into our homschool week?

A pet project ~

  • Check out two library books on hamsters.
  • Read said library books.
  • Write a paper on The Top 10 Things a Hamster Needs.
  • Write a paper on a hamster’s original habitat and where it originates from.
Results?
One very happy, very occupied, never bored, eager to do school boy!
