Childhood is the one time kids have no responsibilities.

The first twelve years of life when kids don’t have to worry about working or paying bills or doing anything like that.

They’re just kids and they should be allowed to experience what it means to be one.

A child’s earliest memories are often of their parents, but there are some things that you can do with your children from early on in their lives that will help them form positive memories for themselves.
