Where a kid can be a kid.....


We have been implementing a "sticker" chart to help get the girls back on task for helping out without the fuss and whine. So for every time that they do something that is asked of them without the drama, they get a sticker. We told the girls that if they filled their sticker charts, we would take them to Chuck E Cheese's. Guess where we are headed tonight!

It should be fun and I have left over tokens and GREAT coupons, so not too expensive either.

Now to see if I can get them to continue helping without the fuss/whine without the bribe of a treat at the end....=)

Great idea! I think I may have to implement something similar soon.
So do all the girls have to earn it to go? What if one does and one doesn't?

Hey! Good job! Whatever works. :)

Kristi, we decided that if one did and one didn't, they either Brad or myself would take the one who did earn it. What better way to show the "reward for good behavior" than to actually miss out on something cause they didn't earn it.

Paige and Megan don't really count as far as "missing out" to prove a point. Thankfully, Aly and Kayla maintained 1-2 sticker difference the whole time. ;)
