Bond over chores

“When the kids were young we lived on a farm and the kids were not sent to boarding school. That meant they were always around and helped on the farm. They helped with animals, ploughing, lots of things really. In fact our time on the farm really formed the pattern of our family life – they were just always part of our working lives.” – Ray Arthur, Anglican Church minister

  • Find a way for your child to help out around the house
