My 2 oldest children (7 &9) are taking piano lessons. They have to practice everyday. I was finding that they didn't practice unless I hounded and nagged...I hate nagging. So I told them they were not allowed to play with neighborhood friends till their practice was done. Result when they wanted to play they rushed through their practice super fast and made little progress in piano.
Now I am trying a new tact. On days they do not have school Piano practice must be done by 12:00( lunch time). On school days it is 5:00 (supper time) or 6pm if there are other activities after school. If piano isn't done by that time then they may not play with their friends for the rest of the day. However, they may play in our yard or ride bikes.
SO today is non-school day piano didn't get done so they are grounded my dd (9yrs) is livid with me. She thinks the consequence is too harsh I think it makes her take resp. What do you think
