So I am starting out the new year on a good note, but yesterday didn't go as good as a planned, but I see little progress.
I hid the remotes so when they get home they have no tv until homework is done and rooms are neat , but they are so not motivated.
I keep repeating and repeating my self and now we are talking about the 11 and 14 year old, this morning they didn't want to get up for school, so tomorrow, I will be up and hour earlier, and see how that is.... I know it will get better, but I was the type of mom who did it all for them, omg, BIG MISTAKE trying to correct. I admit when I make mistakes, Life is a learning progress, thank goodness, I finally learned. :) .
Try to sit down as a family and have a time where you can build a dream board together. Each child can pick things he/she wants to have or achieve or do throughout this year/month/week. You can discuss that if they do their homework or chores than they will get these things. Kinda a visual aid :)
