teach kids to try new things - mandy carter - acupful of carters

This is about trying new things, getting out of ruts.

All four of us love to try new things now. We are teaching the kids that it is important to be open minded about all new experiences so that they can decide if it is something they truly like. We enjoy testing out new products whether it is the latest kids game or a useful kitchen gadget, trying new foods(well honestly us parents like that more), discovering new styles and trying out things that make our adventures more efficient.  As long as we can make it a whole family learning experiment we welcome new things!

Never be afraid to try something new. Life gets boring when you stay within the limits of what you already know.

We try to share our opinions on the things we try; after all we have 4 very different opinions to weigh in on. So things get interesting from time to time. But most importantly we all get to step outside of what we know or thought we knew when new things are introduced to us. We constantly tell the kids, if you never try you will never know.
