Can you guess my Google search terms?
The last several weeks have been torture for me - I was finalizing school stuff so the kids were home with DH. Sounds good, but he lets them basically do whatever. Then they went to Gramma's house. Again, sounds good. But they were borderline terrors (for the first time, usually angels.) Add in afternoon/evening/bedtime tantrums and almost constant bickering and I knew we were in desperate need of a schedule.
And so, here it is:
I'm hoping this goes over well. I'm going to show it to the husband tonight. Then he and I can show it to the girls *together.* Even though I know full well he hates schedules, maybe in the name of family peace, love, and happiness (and my sanity!) he'll go along this time.
I'm considering adding a behavior chart as well. We used one when the girls were small and I'm thinking it would work well again. Chart could go from Friday to following Thursday and reward/consequence would revolve around the pool. Since we have to pay to go, it is an extra special thing this summer. I'm thinking for each spot without a mark/stamp/sticker (for every negative) 5 minutes out of the pool. Sounds good, yes? I might work on that next!
Leave your comments and summer scheduling suggestions below! I'm always looking for new ideas!
