1. Do you make your kids finish all the food on their plates? No way, I do expect them to try a couple of bites if I think it is something they will like. I do say nothing else unless you eat your food but never make them finish their plate. I want them to learn to stop when they feel full. Something I still struggle with today. It is hard sometimes because I know 20 minutes after they eat they are going to be hungry again. 2. Do you give an allowance? Oh yes, I pay them a lot. I pay for food and clothes and a house. Seriously, I do not believe in it. I do offer money for extra chores. For example maybe I need flower beds raked out or sometimes I will pay my son to mow the grass. I can always find extra chores if they want money. I also may pay them when they do something without being asked. 3. Do you actually park your car in the garage? Sadly we do not. We even have a double garage and do not. One side is full of exercise gear and storage boxes and bikes and the other side is full of tools and the 6 foot coat rack my husband built me. Plus we have a deep freezer and a fridge/freezer and let’s not forget about my food storage. 4. What is one food you will NEVER cook? Oysters because well ooh, I will probably never learn to BBQ although we have a great grill and I love grilled food.
