So... I feel like this entire unit, really (lessons 5-9), is the same lesson broken into 4 weeks - and I hope I won't be starting to sound like a broken record in class as we *once again* discuss how to negotiate and discuss calmly and make home life more fair and how to move family life along smoothly through having the right attitude, saying things nicely, and shouldering one's own portion of the responsibility for family functionality. Again.
This lesson's really a subset of the previous one, on improving communication within the home. I'm a few lessons behind these posts, so this past Sunday I taught the one about sharing work in the home--as a spinoff of the lesson about home environment, really, and a lot of our discussion revolved around the need for greater communication and how the attitude & tone of voice make a huge difference in whether conversations about workload, chores, and equitable work-sharing are productive or not.
