someone wrote:"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."
"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.
Daily schedule for summer to post on fridge - magnets glued to the backs of poster board strips. - I am going to do something like this! I like how this isn't based on the clock I have tried that it didn't work for us! One day art time would last 2 minutes, another day 20 minutes! Love that it is more of a routine.
