After tying every method for correct bad behavior and not getting results, I just thought I'd try a new approch.
I'm thinking of putting their names on a paper cup and putting a small bag of M&M's (their favorite) in each cup. The rule is simple. Bad behavior means I take 1 M&M out of the cup. They only get to eat what's left after dinner. I'm hoping they are really gonna try hard to keep all their M&Ms.
Is this a bad idea though? I also worry about the 2 yr old. She might want m&ms way before it's time to eat them. (I'm not going to do this with her, just give her the m&ms...the others are old enough to understand)
Would you do this? What do I do about the 2 yr old wanting m&ms before it's time.
Am I nuts? lol :-)
