Rites of Passage

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/599/37887482/files/2015/01/img_2954.jpgI’m so very excited and proud of my oldest daughter for her creativity and desire to encourage people to Walk Home Happy.

In the recent years my wife and I have taken time to intentionally discuss ritesof passage ideas for our kids. There have been lots of books and Internet posts available for us to learn from. As we continue to figure these things out for our kids, one of the ideas we have is for them to start or become a part of some sort of a small business venture that allows them to use their talents to bless and serve others.

In many ways this hardly seems fair to them. I mean, I can’t imagine myself doing the same thing when I was a teen, but times have changed and the Internet has provided so many incredible options. Plus, since our family has embraced home schooling, we are able to massage our schedule a bit to make these kinds of things work.

Walk Home Happy was our daughter’s vision, and with a little help from Mom and Dad, she’s learning tons of valuable lessons about business, economics, customer service, and so much more.

When you have a moment or two, take a look at what she’s created and how she’s helping people to Walk Home Happy.

What rights of passage ideas have you tried with your kids?
