WHY YOU SHOULD PUSH YOUR KIDS OUT THE FRONT DOOR

By Stephen Jones


 

When I was a kid, one of my favorite things to do in the whole world was going with my grandpa to peddle watermelons.

Not selling. Peddling. Selling is often fast paced and intense. We peddled. It was slow and laid back.

We drove around town in his little white pickup and did more talking than anything else. I loved it!
Paw would also give me a few watermelons to sell myself, which I did in my front yard. I would sit outside and try to sell them for 25 cents each.

I literally just sat in the front yard. I don’t think I ever even made a sign.

I always sold them though…every single one. There was one man, we all called him OJ, who stopped and bought them all for about four or five quarters. I could always count on OJ!

It wasn’t about the money though.

No, it was about the experience. It was about hanging out with my grandpa. It was about getting out of the house. It was about doing something.

When I became a dad, I couldn’t wait to do the same types of things with my kids. Ride around town in the car singing and talking…you know, spend some good ole’ quality time.

To my surprise though, that sentiment is occasionally met with some resistance.
