My kids are pretty good about helping out around the house without having to resort to monetary rewards, but sometimes a little incentive can go a long way. :-) When my kids are looking to make some extra money...this simple and effective job chart takes all the guesswork out of how they can earn it.

If only more people took time to do this for their children!!! "What I love is that each morning, Charlotte and Amelia rush to their envelopes to see what we've written. The notes are sometimes a simple observation of a charitable act or a quick drawing to make them laugh. I love that Charles and I force ourselves to take a minute each evening to think about why we love our children. It's my version of Oprah's gratitude journal.

Uh Oh Jar - LOVE this idea. It was getting hard always sending someone to their room or to the corner. Nothing seemed to change - but now...I'm making a consequence jar like this. Whining? Pull out a consequence. Talking back? Pull out a consequence. Not picking up your things? Pull out a consequence, maybe you'll get "Your lucky day. No consequence THIS TIME."

WE LOVE THIS. It's called a "Calm Down Jar" and it's filled with glitter. Children shake the jar to get their frustrations out and then they’re asked to wait until the glitter has all settled in the bottom. By the time the glitter settles, hopefully so have they.  To make, just fill 1/2 of a jar (preferably plastic) with glitter (maybe a color they like) and the rest with water. Screw lid on tight and you're all set!! WE KNOW SOME ADULTS THAT COULD USE THIS!
