I hate when parents only yell at their kids for what they do wrong. I discourage yelling in our home. Kids listen better to talking it out. Praising them for what they do well is just as important. I can't image how some kids home lives can be. I'm so glad we get to be my boys parent's. They won't grow up in a home filled with arguing.
I like this idea

Memories Boxes, Organizations Kids, Baby Boxes, Paperwork Organization, Schools Work, Schools Photo, Kids Organizations, Great Ideas, 1St Grade
DIY Baby Boxes...start a box for each child upon their birth and keep until graduation. Put their name on the outside and file away all health records, important documents, school photos for each year and all papers K-12th. grade. Everything is in the box and you never need to search the house again when wanting an item for that child. So easy and yet so genius!! *great idea!!

Ducks in a Row: Allowance - MacDougall Family Style. Teaching kids about money. Good suggestions in the comments as well.
Kids Allowance Idea: $1/per year of age each month. 10% save, 10% tithe, 80% theirs - love this idea. I'd do more towards savings though.
hang baggie next to their chore chart Allowance ideas- $1 per age of child, given at beginning of month. Chores are expected as part of family. 10% tithe and savings taken out right away, use ledger to keep track of all money coming in and going out.
I would like a combination of this and extra money for chores for kid's allowances

The Settle Down Jar: tell child that they need a break and may come back when everything has settled to the bottom.
Calm Down, Time Out, Need A Break, Food Color, Take A Break, Calm Jars, Glitter Jars, Calming Jar, Kid
calming jar. if a child is upset they need to take a quiet break until all the dust has settled. Kind of just like the idea of a glitter jar :) Fill a bottle with 3/4 water, one bottle of glitter glue, & ultra fine glitter.
Calming Jar - when a child needs a break to calm down, tell them to take a break and return when everything has settled to the bottom of the jar.
A calming jar is a unique way to get your kids to calm down in time out, while being distracted. All you need is a jar, some sand, and food coloring!
Calming Jar- Tell the child that he/she needs a break and may return when everything has settled to the bottom of the jar. Perfect - fill up a pint jar with water, 1 drop of food coloring and some glitter. I have whichever kid is "doing time" shake the bottle and watch it settle. Once the glitter has settled, they've had time to calm down and talk about their problem. It's quite soothing actually
