So tonight after the kids show, it was time for dd 4 to brush her teeth and go to bed. One of her favorite things is for stories before bed. Well a couple of times she did not want to listen and I told her if she did not listen she would not get stories. Well after me following through a couple of times it finally sunk through her head.
She brushed her teeth and instead of going into her room, she came and got back onto my bed, which was a no no. So I said if i count to three and you are still here, not stories.
1, 2, and before I could blink she was in her room waiting for a story. OMG discipline and follow through actually works.
Just felt the urge to share.
