"Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined,
and every city or household divided against itself will not stand"
Doing a project with another person can either unify or divide the participants. When my daughter came home from college, we tackled a task together. We shared the job of painting furniture. Her bedroom set (previously mine as a child) was transformed from princess style, white and gold to shabby chic, silver and black. Working, laughing and enjoying each other's company was great fun! Treasured time in the garage with black paint smeared on our faces will be a memory that brings a smile.
Keep your perspective when working on a home project with your child. Remember enjoying the time together is even more important than the final product. Let it be a memory building experience-in a good way!
