I'm wondering if anyone here has their kids "contribute" to the sport of skiing.
I'm talking any kind of contribution. For parents, skiing is expensive. It is a lot of work. It is a big time commitment. And while I'm happy to do all three for my kids, part of me feels I should ask my kids to give back a bit as well.
Giving back might be waxing their own skis after a hard day skiing (not this year for my child of course but in a few years). Perhaps collecting aluminum cans throughout the year and recycling them to get a little bit of money to contribute toward the cost of lessons.
Some parents encourage their kids to be ski instructors to teach others how to ski. Some kids help make dinner at the lodge after the hard day skiing.
I'm just wondering - are there any contributions that you ask your kid to make, and what are they?
