If you’ve been reading here a while, you might remember the five reasons why I think whiteboards are the greatest parenting tool ever. One day, you start writing your kids notes, and the next thing you know, they are writing you back…
It doesn’t matter that we didn’t ask our son if he wanted a dog, or whether he’d like a big or small one. It’s the sweet goodnight note and I love you that counts. :)
And after your kids start writing you notes, they start writing each other.
All on their own…
When my daughter found that note from my son on her whiteboard, I heard her go into his room and tell him she loved him too. It was one of those moments I wanted to bottle up and keep forever. Especially because it came on the heels of some pretty bad sibling squabbles.
If you don’t have whiteboards in your kids’ rooms, I highly recommend it. You’ll be surprised, entertained, and touched by some of the things you’ll see. :)
