Good luck. I've never been successful going on strike. I'm doing a complete over haul on the way this house is run. Dh is on board. The kids will have set tasks to do and will exhibit certain behaviors in order to earn time on the things they like.

I've tried that. I have taken their toys, Xbox and Wii away from them. They still don't do anything. Its not even just the kids. It's my husband too.

That sucks. Chances are they are watching dad. You know what I mean. Taking things away doesn't work with my kids , but having them earn seems to work much better. I'm working with my older sons councelor on this new plan.
