we have a "Hold your tounge"Jar. Pretty much it is a jar, that everytime we adults cuss, or if anyone in the family  speak badly of someone or whatever we need to put  a quarter  in a jar.


Well anyway my 10yo just came out and put a quarter in the Jar, When I asked him why he put a quarter in the jar and he said he called his brother Lazy. I told him I was glad he took responsibitly for his actions. I am very proud of him right now.

Oh my goodness, I need that jar. I'm not happy with myself the past few years. I have been grumbling, complaining, and have even started cussing like I did in high school again. We hit some bumps and I'm having a hard time emotionally being "ok" again, and that's causing me to be so dang negative. If I had that jar, though, I'd be broke within the week.

I like that idea!  In our house if someone feels they just have to say something that is "naughty" we have to go into the bathroom....as potty words (any words not nice, hate, stupid, retarted are all considered potty words in this house) need to stay in the potty room.

I'd fill that jar up in a day - especially if getting on the freeway!

This is another terrific idea!!! I like that better than the quarters, because we wouldn't follow through on the quarters (we never keep enough cash around for that)
