Need ideas to take back my home this summer. Kids ages 10 & 12 - think, they can stay up late, eat junk food all day. Summer isn't half over and I'm tired of it. The mess in the house.
1. No tv after 10pm. (Computer) ??? Cells phone ???
2. Eat meals durning the day. (I buy easy to prepair foods)
What rules do you set to keep kids on track. The school year is more organized & the kids are busy with sports and stuff. Less time for slacking off.
They went to short day camps all of June, but there isn't anything for July & I cannot afford more camps
They do chores when asked & cleaned the entire house last Friday cuz they wanted to go to the movies. And yes, we went and my son had a friend stay over.
My dd is 12 and legaly old enough to stay home alone & I could never afford daycare for my two kids. We live in a small town with few options - the rich kids go to summer day camps from 8 - 5 for like $150. A week per kids. I don't have an extra $300. A week, sorry

I'm not understanding the purpose of increasing the income so as to be able to provide care for their children. What does money have\ to do with respect and responsibility. My nephew is about that age and he's allowed limited video games. The school gave them a package of schoolwork to do over the summer. It included reading a certain number of books and doing book reports on them all. There was also math sheets that had to be done. So guess what he'll be taking on his vacation to do during the drive?? Hmm,,, Good luck
