How do you get your child to be ready to start each day?
My DD Wakes up between 6 and 7 everyday so I expect her to be ready to start by 9 when the baby takes his morning nap. I have 4 younger children here everyday so it's important that we do work when I can give her the most attention (ie when one or all are sleeping).
It is getting harder and harder to have her get ready on time. Yesterday and the day before when I started yelling she finally was ready around 9:30... When it was time for me to get the baby up etc... So today I gave her a 40 min warning, then another 15 min beforre 9, and another at 5 min till. Still not ready. So I took away 1 toy for every min. late she was. I have in my possesion 20 toys. How do I let her earn them back? I don't know yet.
Do you have this problem? How do you handle it?
Forgiveness is setting the prisoner free and then realizing the prisoner was you.
