The Consequence Jar
I've been dealing with a lot of arguments and "attitude" from the kids-whether its bedtime,chore time,school time, etc...and because time outs & grounding hasn't made much difference -I came up with the "consequence jar".Inside I put numbers and I made a list of things to do around the house.(unload dishwasher,fold clothes,sweep kitchen,etc...).If theyre fighting or have sassy mouths-I've been telling them "that is unacceptable behavior or talk " and go to the jar and draw out a consequence. Yesterday after drawing three-their attitudes were much better today.Im hoping it helps with all the bickering and complaining.
