Guess what Brisa got for her birthday? Her first pet! His name is "fish, fish". First off let me say a fish is by no means as easy as it used to be when I was a kid. I remember it was a bowl and a house and some rocks and good. Now it seems that you have to be a marine biologist just to take care of one 1.5 inch guppy (3 hours of assembly for a three gallon tank and water purification for 24 hours?) However, it's what she wanted and so I thought this would be a great chance to teach her about being responsible. Not "we loose toys if we don't put them away" responsible but REAL responsibility. She has always been a nurturing child but with a very short attention span and it can be hard to keep her focus. So let's see how she does. What are some ways you teach your kids how to be more responsible?
