Who Are the “Three Men in a Tub?”


Monday’s Parenting Thought
Children are fascinated by jobs. Mother Goose’s “Three Men In A Tub” wasn’t so popular just because of the rhyme. Remember that the three men weren’t just any three men. They were men with occupations and skills – a butcher, a baker, and a candlestick maker. Even very young children are interested in what people do, and it is never too early to help them know more about careers and work.
Who would your child put in the tub? Would it be 3 men, 3 women, or both? What would be their occupations? One Mom told me at her house they were a ballerina, a mermaid, and a paleontologist.
Try asking your children what jobs are most interesting to them. Then look for ways for them to learn more about those jobs.
