I remember giving my child lessons to help him in life.
This one summer morning and the air conditioner in our home was not working efficiently.
As a result, I decided to check the air filters, and I discovered that they were blocked with dust and debris. As I began to wash the filters, my child asked me how we could prevent them from getting restrained so abruptly. I realized that he did not know how to wash the filters constantly and decided to teach him. I explained that it was essential to wash the filters every 3 weeks and showed him how to do it. We took the filters outside, removed the debris with a brush, and then washed them with water. After the filters were cleaned, we put them back in the AC, and the child turned the air conditioner on. As he felt the cool air, he beamed with pride, knowing that he had played a part in fixing the problem. The experience not only taught my child how to wash the air filters, however it also instilled a sense of responsibility and pride in him. He learned the importance of regular service and how to take care of our home and car’s air conditioners. From that morning on, our child became more interested in how things worked, and we spent more time fixing and maintaining things around the house. It was a small lesson, however it taught him life skills that he will carry with him for years to come.
