Do you recognize the need to build up your children every day, too? This list of phrases will encourage the child who hears them from a sincere parent. There are so many “voices” in this world telling our kids they don’t measure up. Behind every young child who believes in him, is a parent who believed in him first. Let’s go on the offensive and help our girls and boys see how truly wonderful they are. ~ Club31Women
Calm Down Jar – A creative approach to time-out. Child first shakes the jar to get their frustrations out, then they’re asked to wait until the glitter has all settled on the bottom. That’s when time-out is over. I think I need one of these… @ Do It Yourself Remodeling Ideas
What a fun way to get kids to clean up- assign a specific type of toy (books, dolls, dress-up, etc) a number, 1-6. Have kids roll the dice to find which toy they need to pick up. If you have more than 6 categories of toys, just make another list of 6 (this is smart in case they roll the same number!)
I LOVE this idea. Make a wipe-off placemat for each kid to sit down and draw out their day while I cook dinner. Then it gives us something to talk about while we eat! Can download them on this site. Adorable!
