So.. Going on day three of snow day April 2013. Your house is a mess and you are pulling your hair out. Think of something fun, but make the kids earn it first. Here is a list by age of what they can learn to do, or do.
How to teach children to tell the truth. We can't expect our children to be honest if we are lying. We can't expect them to want to tell the truth if we scare and offer punishment. Discipline not punishment.
reward system based on 'real world' -- kids earn chips for good behaviors and chores, then turn them in for things they want. they also lose chips for behaviors that aren't acceptable. (this is the chart I created for my little nanny-kids)
IHeart Organizing: Free Printables - Pinning for the morning and bedtime routines - great for kids to see what needs to be done (and laminate so they can check off whats been done). Great way to teach responsibility!
