Two days in, and we're already tweaking. I went from skewers, to marbles....I added a jar for Brian - it should have dawned on me that he would want one too.
And now you know the real reason I named our first two kids Allan and Wendy - it was to support my A&W addiction. How perfect are these for points holders?
I have to make a separate chart for Brian - his will contain earnings for going pee on the potty, eating all his dinner, cleaning up his toys, that type of thing. He will lose points for accidents (he does good 90% of the time since relearning after his cast...but there are still some weak days) excessive whining (we've had a lot of it) sassy talk and not eating his dinner. He will also get points for feeding himself...he's positively stubborn when it comes to holding his own fork. Markie feeds himself, Brian whines. It's from his father's side of the family. ;)
The dot on the door is also working like a charm. What most amazes me is how Wendy doesn't want to turn it over to green. Today, for instance, she's been in the house crafting, outside playing with her brothers, trying to build a stash in her points jar, and that sort of thing. When I asked her why she didn't flip the dot over she just replied, "I'm not in the mood to play today" Fine with me.
Now to figure out supper. I might need my own point jar.
