If your childhood was like mine, then perhaps Saturday mornings began with a mad dash of my parents corralling my siblings and I into cleaning the house despite our intentions to do anything else. My younger brother could often be found hiding in the car in the garage whereas my method was to hide in the laundry room which conveniently doubled as a food pantry. Eventually, born of our parents mounting frustrations and fearing their increasingly exasperated tones, the work would get done. Then, we would generally scatter about, fearful that some missed chore might get noticed and addressed. The family would go their separate ways until the memory of the ordeal was forgotten or night fell.
With more and more people becoming eco-friendly or "green" it's even more important to teach our kids the importance of being earth friendly, as this is the only planet we have. The main points of being green are reduce, reuse, recycle, and enjoy the earth. Reducing the amount wasted resources like turning off lights, turning off water while brushing can be huge deals if done on a global scale. Reusing items like rechargable batteries or bringing your own bags to grocery store. In stead of throwing away pizza boxes or milk jugs simply putting them in a recycle bin. And finally enjoying what mother nature has given us. Take the family on hike or go camping (remember to leave the camp site how you found it or better). We can't do everything by ourselves, but together we can sure make a difference.

Jack Canfield author of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, and The Success Principles writes: “Most female executives spend too much time running their household, when they could easily delegate this task to a cleaning service...freeing themselves to focus on their career or spend more time with their family.”
