20 ideas to make birthdays special. For example, hide balloons in their closet or the kitchen cabinets and watch their surprised faces when they open them. Take over their chores for the day. Let them choose what's for dinner, and at dinner have everyone name something they love about the birthday boy/girl.

"I tell all my patients this at physical therapy! Homemade Ice packs: 1 part rubbing alcohol to 3 parts water, gets really cold, but never hardens so you can manipulate it. every athlete (or mom) should pin this!"

"Technology Tickets". Each Sunday give the kids 10 tickets. Each ticket = 30 minutes of t.v., game system, computer, etc. Tickets can be used consecutively, but when they are out they are out for the week. **Love this idea!!!** Loss of ticket for consequences - talking back, fighting, etc.

kids or no kids, these ideas are worth looking at. Ideas for how to replace TV time with something better.

Great list to keep handy for parents of small children. It's like a "refresh" button for kids.
