I have realized lately though, that he is a bit lazy. I don't make him do much
Well this morning I'm doing my usual routine and start fixing his lunch and...no lunchbox. I have told him if the box isn't in the kitchen, he will get no lunch and have to eat whatever is at school. This morning I say "I don't see a lunchbox" and he says he's getting it. As he's bringing the lunchbox into the kitchen he says "sometimes you're selfish."
Ruh Roh (in my best Scooby voice)....rewind and let's try that again. I leaned in really close and said "what did you say?" Of course, his reply was "nothing." Anywhoo...fast forward to my question. Have I spoiled him? Do I do too much for him at 9? Should I back off and let him take on more responsibility? Do I already know the answers to all of those questions?
Chime in readers and tell me what you think.
