Call it whatever you wish, bribery, disciplining or parenting. Whatever suits your fancy, but it works wonders for me.
All 5 of my boys share the spacious loft upstairs bka, "The Man Cave." We recently moved into this home, so sharing one bedroom amongst all 5 of them was a painful adjustment to say the least. The older ones were complaining that the little ones were slobs. Imagine that?
Oh yes, I am taking credit for this one.....
I have a "deal" with the 3 younger ones....
If their room is "mommy" cleaned before supper, they each get a Popsicle after Sissy goes to bed. However, there are several stipulations...
* I will remind them only once about 30 minutes before serving time
* There will be no fighting, yelling, choking, spitting, or whining during clean up
* Everyone must do their share
* An older sibling will inspect before supper begins
VIOLA.......Their room is always clean, organized, and perfect before supper!
Can I hear an AMEN or two!
bribery compromise works for you and your children?
