Do you find yourself giving your kids consequences that don’t really teach them anything, or that don’t really work? Do you say to often: “go to your room” or “your grounded for the rest of your life” (I’m exaggerating just a little bit here)? What do your kids do once the’re in their room? They play with their toys! Do you really think they mind? Mine sure don’t!
Rake the leaves.
I still send them to their rooms sometimes if the’re really bad and I need a break! I still take TV or Ipods away, but I try to focus on giving them chores instead, that way they are learning and I’m not taking all their fun away!
